The prolific Queens MC has been prominently published in Gawker and Huffington Post, plus featured in an array of media outlets such as NPR, Pitchfork and Rolling Stone even naming him as “Artist to Watch.”

Since signing with Stones Throw Records in 2011, Homeboy Sandman has made himself at home releasing a full length, First of a Living Breed, along with a series of five short records, establishing himself as one of the most productive and creative lyricists of this generation.

THE VINYL is a 2/LP gatefold with lyrics and two exclusive bonus tracks. Vinyl is running late and will be available no sooner than late September.

HALLWAYS OUT NOW Sandman celebrates the release of every new record with an all new song. “Hallways OUT NOW” is produced by Doc Heller.

Dubstep: Deep Dubstep (Pt. 1, 2004-2006)

– Evolution of Electronic Sound is back with another informative mix in their series that explores the development of the dubstep sound. This is how they were looking at dubstep around 2004-2006.

Although there are no clear classifications for any approach to dubstep, a notable shift in the sound occurred in 2004, and the one tune that did it was Loefah’s Horror Show. Before this tune, everything considered dubstep was predominantly based on energetic 2-step beats. Loefah kept the 140bpm tempo (as well as the deeper sound himself, Digital Mystikz and Kode9 pioneered), but halved the timing of the beats so that it sounded more like 70bpm. This production style was labelled “halfstep”, and it clearly influenced how nearly everyone else made dubstep — by 2005 commenters were remarking that, for the uninitiated listener, dubstep basically meant halfstep.

In early 2006, Mary Anne Hobbes brought together the most notable figures of the scene for the Breezeblock Dubstep Wars. This one-off radio show had a big effect on the popularity of dubstep, and it happened to mostly feature halfstep beats. To new listeners, this basically was the sound of dubstep. A few years after 2006, two noisier strains of dubstep were what a much larger part of the world came to know “dubstep” as. The terms “deep dubstep”, “minimal dubstep” and “real dubstep” all caught on for the style presented in this mix.
