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, 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.
