NEW MIX: Don Leisure’s ‘Metabeats : From the Vaults’

Sunday, November 24th, 2013
The Don Leisure Metabeats Mix

Metabeats ‘Darkhouse Fam’ brother is the badboy foodie and soul selecting, monster beat making, Don Leisure. Well that man there hooked up a journey through the deep deep vaults of Meta’s lesser heard beat heritage.

Asked about the mix he said “Just thought people should hear these beats as I knew Che wouldn’t do nish with them. Ha.” Going on to point out his favourite beat on here is the still dope ‘Gifted’. “(It) Was the 1st beat Che played me when we first hung out and a bunch of the other tracks are stuff that Che has kinda lost.”

Trust us, this mix, covers all the ages of Meta’s music making journeys with some of these rarely heard roughs and rares dating close to ten years old. It also comes fully upto date featuring some of Metabeats newer collaborations with Ed Boogie from his recent incredible ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP, some tracks released under other names and one or two yet to be released heatrocks also.

2 NEW BEAUTIFUL METABEATS VIDEOS: SUN & SNOW

Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

We proudly proudly present the two brand new videos for the OG mix of Metabeats ‘Music Pt.1′ featuring the inimitable big man, Ralph Rip Shit.

Michael Aaron over at Subjective Realities has produced an incredible looking piece of film for the beautiful summer version. A video we’re really loving at AMHQ at the moment. It’s also a perfect counter balance to the raw home cut feel of the winter version shot by our own Mayor. That version was shot in freezing temperatures and cutting winds at the top of a snow capped mountain range in the Brecon Beacons’ National Park.

If you like the track you can get a free download of it here.

NB. To fully appreciate the beauty of the summer version we’d recommend watching in full 1080p.

NEW METABEATS VIDEOS: SUN? OR SNOW?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
Ralph Music Still 2

SUMMER? Or WINTER? You decide.

Tomorrow the TWO brand new videos for Metabeats ‘Music Pt.1′ will be premiering on the world renowned ‘Nah Right’. The track featuring the big man, Ralph Rip Shit returns with some visuals we’re really proud of and you can choose between the ‘Sun’ or ‘Snow’ videos.

They say patience is a virtue. And never has that been truer. We live in a time where everyone expects to have things instantly. Never has the pressure been greater to fire product out endlessly.

Well we’re trying to buck that trend and spend a little time with our music. And this one was a real challenge. We had to bide our time and wait for the perfect moments, battling blizzards on top of mountains, serious minus temperatures and freezing winds. So you can choose between the raw, Super 8 feel of the Winter cut, or the incredible, warm and creative switch up of the Summer version.

Ed Boogie & Metabeats – Behind The Scenes @ The Barnyard

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Metabeats was up at Ed Boogie’s ‘Barnyard’ studio the other day, working on some new ideas together. If you love music there’s really nothing quite like being in a studio in the flesh and seeing (and feeling) a new track come together from scratch.

We’re lucky that we get to see that all the time and maybe even take that blessing for granted sometimes. So we decided to appreciate their talent for what it is, and try give you a glimpse behind closed doors to watch them at play…

NEW MIX: DJ JAFFA LIVE @ THE CAVIAR CRACKLE BLOCK PARTY

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

We managed to get our hands on the live audio of the incredible set that the legendary DJ Jaffa played at the Metabeats ‘Caviar Crackle Block Party’ this weekend. It was an incredible day of bubbling with friends and family to celebrate the release of Meta’s second LP and all the DJ’s on the day were dropping gem upon gem of good music. This hour long set is one of those ones that truly keeps it moving across an absolute tonne of classics and finely mined new tracks. One of the nicest mixes we’ve heard in a minute. Definitely one for the music heads out there

THE CAVIAR CRACKLE COVER ARTWORK

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

A collaborative project between ourselves and some of the extended family of creatives we’ve been lucky enough to have worked with over the years. (And some new ones.)

After an intial idea between Mayor & Metabeats and themeekshall laying the type and idea out for us, we approached the incredibly talented Spike Dennis. Known for being a ‘boy who sews’ he crafts some beautifully twisted and subverted images of unicorns in stitching. No shit. So we knew he was the man we needed to tackle the gold thread embroidery. Then our friends over at Gallery Sixty Six came through generously on the framing and staining side. The touch that brings the idea on home! Finally our long term friend (and photographer don) Alex Mills took the photo to ensure it was all captured just right.

And this quick little vid was shot by our boy Huw ‘Cadillac Johnson’ Caddy.

Album is available on iTunes worldwide now.

THE CAVIAR CRACKLE BLOCK PARTY – COME JOIN US

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013
We're having a party. You're invited.

To help celebrate the release of the Metabeats ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP on June 25th, we figured we’d throw a party. Not a ‘launch party’ as such though. Just a simple party, where friends and fans (and friends of fans) could all come along to live it up and bubble with us. It’s free entry. And on from 3pm ’til late.

So we got a few friends to play and got a sweet looking spot for it out the back of Base, Cardiff for us all to get crunk. It’s open air but still covered so it’s pretty damn perfect. And on top of that, simply because we’re enjoying ourselves, the first 50 TO 70 people to get hold of us will be given/fed/hooked up with, a complimentary, ‘Caviar Cracker’ of the food type. We (b)allin’ this together.

As well as the DJ’s we’ve got our fingers crossed we’ll be joined by the beautiful and talented Vanity Jay for a short P.A. and who knows who else might swing through…

Bring your dancing shoes.

CD Versions of the album will be available on the day for a one off price of the most value for money five pounds you ever did saw.

METABEATS ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE ‘Passport’

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Metabeats B&W Press Shot

Metabeats has just announced the release of the final single before the release of his ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP.

‘Passport’ which will land on the 11th of February features the incredible vocals of the beautiful and talented Vanity Jay and is likely to catch people off guard.

Talking about the track Meta said, “I didn’t wanna make a throwback jam, but wanted to pay homage to the people before me. Musically it is a tip of the hat to the great Stanley Clarke and also real refreshing for us as it’s a step outside the hip hop/ beat realm. Did i mention the video is bananas?  You’re about to get slapped in the face by the superfunk!!’

The brandnew single from Metabeats featuring the already legendary and always classic sounding, Action Bronson, is finally here and spreading like wild fire after The Fader got the exclusive last week.
