GURU: Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal

GURU

much respect and much thanks to one of the best voices in Hip Hop. Guru will always be remembered through his music. Gang Starr is the group that a lot of post-'94 groups like BP & ODDS model our sound, methods, philosophy, attitude, content, and of course careers after.

Our new project VACANCY is dedicated to Guru for refining the Jazz/Hip Hop sound we tried to achieve in the recordings.
We celebrate his life through his music.
RIP and thank you, GURU.

BROKEN BUTTONS...

Recording for the new album "VACANCY" is underway. A couple more beats and a new project will be available for download. So far things have gone smoothly with making the beats until the most important buttons on the MPC broke. Shift & Program. This has happened more than a few times in the past.

The thing that sucks about using hardware is that parts are becoming scarce. I found an internet site that sold buttons but they were based in the U.K. I had only one other option. I drove out to studio city to visit the man...Bruce Forat.

I paid $4 for each button. It was easy to replace. Took about 5 minutes...

I really need to stock up on a bag of these things. Im sure all the software heads get a kick outta seeing us go thru all this.
