TeamSupreme At Irving Plaza, Saturday January 17th
Release The East-West Mixtape
TeamSupreme was born out of a game between Preston Walker (of Virtual Boy) and Great Dane, who challenged each other to produce a one-minute beat in hour, using a set BPM and sample from the Notorious B.I.G.; 60 minutes later two new tracks were created.Two years on, the challenge of creating beats against the clock has spread across the country and has evolved into a weekly beat challenge. Every Monday an artist picks a BPM and two samples, the producers must then create a on-minute track in on week (originally constraints have been relaxed). Results of these challenges are merged into weekly podcasts and played out at monthly events.
Eternally tracking the innovators and instigators of new music communities, MeanRed has had their eye on these guys for a while. This Saturday (1/17), they’ve got the TeamSupreme crew – Hawaiian chef-by-day producer Carmack (recently featured in RL Grime’s Halloween mix), Mad Decent alum Djemba Djemba (who just remixed Madonna), the duo of Preston James and Papie i.e. Penthouse Penthouse, 24 year-old hip-hop influence Great Dance, and Brooklyn-based producer JHNTHN STEIN – bringing their biggest beats to take over Irving Plaza. Going to be a big night!
In anticipation of this Saturday’s show, the crew put together a mixtape, so aptly titled The East-West Mixtape. You can take a listen to it via the link below.
