"Meet Dealz Makes Beats, our featured CO producer for The Solution Showcase #4"

About 99% of the time, Dealz has a portable turntable in his hands. Not 99% of the time when he’s making music or record shopping, I’m pretty sure it’s just 99% of his everyday life that he carries it around. That same dedication to music and the magic of records comes in across in his music. Dealz’s beats are soulful, funky and embody the classic hip hop aesthetic that could only come from someone who carries a portable turntable around 24/7, get a taste below:My homey’s call me Dealz. I used to rap but I got crazy bored with ‘beat makers’ giving me the run around, so now I make beats all day and produce for afew artist. If you like em let me know and if not? thats cool too. I keep my S^&* gutta, raw, soulful and most importantly I try to make the BEST & SOULFUL music I can 4 myself and for all my people. KEEP HIP HOP ALIVE! FYI: I dont do this music thing to get rich (even though i’d love to), I dont do it because it’s the cool thing to make beats now and I for damn sure dont do it for the groupies. I make this music because I LOVE to do it. When everyone gives up because their overnite success didnt survive the next day, I’m going to be giving the people the music they need in their lives NOW and FOREVER. MUSIC IS A REFLECTION…words that I breathe by….If your music isnt timeless; Then what are you doing for?
I try to bring back that essence of hip hop I grew up on. But I aslo use down south soulfulness, west coast laid back, and midwest innovation to create something that everyone can feel. Whether you want to dance to it, flow to it, smoke to it, ride around the streets to it, as long as you use it for what it is, I’ve done my job. OH AND I’M AN AVID CRATE DIGGER! cant forget that!
Why this name?
Its the last part of my name. And I am heavily influenced by the great J Dilla. One the best to ever do it. That and I make beats….Dealz…Makes Beats! - DJ LOW KEY

"SONG OF THE YEAR INTERVIEW"

5280 HIPHOP MUSIC AWARDS - ISO & MRS GINA


"Lord of the Microphone: The Multi-faceted Emcee"

The internet makes everyone a superstar. Ask Soulja Boy; hell, ask your favorite rapping homeboy with a studio setup. All it really takes is a pen, pad, microphone and moderate skill behind the board and voila! There’s your recorded track that may or may not sound like, “Bands A Make Her Dance.” Juicy J recorded that song in a hotel room in Atlanta somewhere or something and it was an instant hit. The difference between your average rapping Jack and Juicy J is an Oscar win and a helluva engineer who comes in and cleans up the track.
The independent scene thrives mostly because emcees are taking matters into their own hands. Many artists know you can’t simply step into the booth, rattle off a random verse and have a hit record. Recording is half the battle. There’s levels to this studio time shit and when done right booth presence can be the difference in success and a dream deferred. We spoke to several emcees who are known studio heads. Always recording, perfecting tracks and creating the latest joint that knocks in trunks, Rob 4 Real, Bianca Mikahn and Jahni Denver are three emcees who have what it takes to perfect a moment in the booth.
How often are you recording?
Rob 4 Real: My recording process really differs and depends on the situation. I usually have the track written and all ready to go before I get to the studio. If I’m working on collaboration with another MC or producer, I will write it on the spot. I can write pretty quickly if the beat and the topic come to me. I can usually write a verse in about 15 to 30 minutes and build a chorus or hook around that verse.
Do you show up to the studio session with your track already written and sketched out or do you allow the moment to hit you?
Rob 4 Real: I usually spend most of the time and focus on the actual recording session. I prefer to have the beat and song all ready to go before I get to the studio. It allows me to dwell more on the subject, lyrics, and overall song. The problem I have with writing in the studio is that after I finish recording there’s certain things I wish I would have said differently or wrote differently or incorporated in that song.
In what ways are you a perfectionist in the recording studio?
Rob 4 Real: I’m very meticulous when recording verses to the point that I want to be able to record the entire verse in one take. Not meaning the first try, but no punch-ins. The fact that I record so often I’ve compiled a very extensive catalog. I’m sitting on lots of unreleased and unfinished songs. I’m currently about to release my joint album with Dealz Makes Beats titled Ignorant Intellectuals and a collaboration mixtape with Florida friends titled Lifted. Both are finished. I’m also working on my solo album titled REALmatic. - HipHopRollCall.com

Bio

Producer DealzMakesBeats and Emcee Rob4Real are ROB/DMB. A duo built on raw hip hop, everyday life and being the life of any party, cipher and/or show. Reminiscent of groups such as EPMD, Pete Rock & CL Smooth and Gangstarr just to name a few. But instead of trying to replicate the sound of the 90's, they embrace all flavors of music and soundscapes to create an authentic hip hop audio experience. They've opened for emcees, Talib Kweli, RA the Rugged Man, Action Bronson and Riff Raff to name a few. Their first single 'I Dont Do Much', as been not only a crowd favorite, but also won them "Song of the Year", at this years '5280 Awards' in Denver, Colorado. ROB/DMB's debut album 'Ignorant Intellectuals' is set for an early 2014 release.
