Two years ago, IMAKEMADBEATS burst onto the scene, producing Transcontinental, a collaborative album with Roc C. Now, following the release late last year of IMMB’s dual-EP release Daylight/Nightlight, the producer is releasing his own, long awaited, solo debut. And in celebration of today’s release, the producer, who calls both Memphis and Orlando home, is releasing “Heard Of Me,” the latest single from his self-titled new album.

“Heard of Me,” one of the most triumphant tracks on the album, features Black Milk, Butta Verses, and TzariZM, while showcasing IMAKEMADBEATS’ trademark soulful style. Beginning with reverberating organ and slick drum rolls, the track quickly jumps into chopped samples and rolling, thunderous drums, with Black Milk handling duties on the first verse, followed by Butta Verses before being finished off by TzariZM. “I’ve done a lot of production for either lesser known artists, or very well known artists and just wasn’t given the credit, ” says IMMB in discussing the inspiration for the song’s title while alluding to his past work and ghost production. “Whether it was through engineering, DJ’ing, or production, somehow you might have heard of me.” And with his debut album dropping today, fans should get used to hearing from IMAKEMADBEATS a lot more from now on.

IMAKEMADBEATS’ self-titled debut IMAKEMADBEATS is available now via Doxside Music Group.

After releasing the two-part EP, Daylight/Nightlight, and “I Bet,” the Von Pea-, J. Freedome, and Xodus featuring first leak from the producer’s forthcoming self-titled debut, IMAKEMADBEATS is now treating fans with a full sampling of the album. The LP will be released on January 18th via Doxside Music Group and features the likes of Black Milk, Steele of Smif N Wessun, Planet Asia, Butta Verses and TzariZM, and more. The album sampler is a compilation of songs that puts IMAKEMADBEATS’ production skills on full display, showing off his far reaching diversity and depth of sound. With tracks ranging from hard hitting grit (“Heard Of Me,” “Spazz”) to emotionally charged (“What’s It Gonna Be”), the album maintains a level of soulfulness that has become a hallmark of all IMAKEMADBEATS work.

IMAKEMADBEATS’ self-titled debut will be available January 18th via Doxside Music Group.

Producer IMAKEMADBEATS is back again with the release of the free EP Nightlight as the second half of his dual-EP concept album Daylight/Nightlight. Daylight/Nightlight takes a multifaceted look at the highs and lows of life, evident through the stories delivered by collaborators Butta Verses, the lyricist behind the Daylight EP, and Nightlight emcee MidaZ The Beast, most recently heard on his last mixtape The El MidaZ Affair and as a guest on Alchemist’s GTA: Chinatown Wars Gangrene Mix. While the two EPs are being released separately in a radio edited digital format, IMAKEMADBEATS and Doxside Music Group will later release both for sale together in an unedited physical format.

Nightlight finds MidaZ delving into the darkest corners of the mind with ferocious vigor. As IMAKEMADBEATS’ partner-in-crime in the grimy duo known as BlakOut, MidaZ masterfully manipulates words in the same style that has helped build his reputation in underground circles as a force to be reckoned with. IMAKEMADBEATS completely flips his style on this half of the project, providing MidaZ with tense, hard-hitting beats to vent over – musical beds that fit the edgy tone set throughout the EP. Songs like “Subliminal Diss” and “Word Of Mouth” capture the Nightlight theme, exploring unfiltered angst, while previous single “Flyers” features MidaZ taking shots at lazy and incompetent show promoters.

On January 18, 2011 IMAKEMADBEATS will drop his self-titled solo debut, featuring Black Milk, Von Pea of Tanya Morgan, Butta Verses, Hezekiah, and more on Doxside Music Group.

Producer IMAKEMADBEATS, who calls both Memphis and Orlando home, is proud to release the free EP Daylight as the first half of his dual-EP concept album Daylight/Nightlight. Daylight/Nightlight takes a deep and honest look at the duality of life, manifested through the stories delivered by collaborators Butta Verses (the man behind Daylight’s lyrical duties who’s best known for his previous collaborative work with De La Soul), and Midaz The Beast, the voice of Nightlight. While the two EPs are being released separately in a radio edited digital format, IMAKEMADBEATS and Doxside Music Group will later release both for sale together in an unedited physical format.

Daylight finds Butta Verses introspectively assessing his life while addressing the positive changes he knows he must make. No stranger to life’s temptations, the Ft. Lauderdale-based emcee is aided by an emotionally charged, soulful IMAKEMADBEATS soundtrack, featuring piano, organ, and guest vocals that figuratively (and sometimes literally) take listeners to church. Songs like “Join Me” and “Awake” explore a more vibrant and upbeat sound, echoing the daylight theme. Later in the EP, slower, more introspective songs like “Hopeless” and “How is Your Soul” fade to darker colors as they approach Nightlight.

Following the dual-EP, IMAKEMADBEATS will drop his self-titled solo debut, featuring Black Milk, Von Pea of Tanya Morgan, Butta Verses, Hezekiah, and more on Doxside Music Group.

Producer IMAKEMADBEATS is at it once again. On the new track, “How Is Your Soul,” from the forthcoming dual-EP concept album Daylight/Nightlight, the beat-maker enlists rapper Butta Verses to lend his emcee-skills. The EP, which is the first music the producer has released since 2009’s The Transcontinental, his collaborative project with Roc C, is in preparation for his self-titled debut on Doxside Music Group, set for release in early 2011. Though the nature of the collaborations may differ, still present is IMAKEMADBEATS’ scientific approach to music, with every detail and nuance carefully thought out and in its rightful place.

Though the song features a relatively lighthearted cameo from TzariZM as “Reverend TZ,” the subject matter is decidedly more introspective. “We wanted to just let them know how we felt about ourselves,” IMAKEMADBEATS explains. Lines like “I’m gonna search for the truth ’till I find what I’m lookin’ for / Everything I’ve found so far just make me look more,” over an organ-heavy beat and the words of the aforementioned “Reverend,” carry a message without preaching an agenda. “How Is Your Soul” is about asking questions and the result is a startlingly personal first look into IMAKEMADBEATS’ newest project.
