Product Details
Description
Since bursting onto the scene in 1999 with Mos Def's unforgettable "Ms. Fat Booty," Ayatollah has evolved into one of hip-hop's most reliable producers, crafting timeless tracks for the likes of Pharaohe Monch, Rakim, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5'9", Guru, and Sean Price. He's also begun to step out of the shadows that envelop hip-hop's the men behind the boards, releasing a series of acclaimed instrumental albums. To celebrate the July release of the lastest in this series, Cocoon, Tollah Music will be following up with Live From The MPC 60, a 3-CD collection of Ayatollah instrumentals that have never seen a physical release. This anthology will be released on August 10, 2010.

Live From The MPC 60 serves as a good starting point for fans of Ayatollah's soulful production who haven't explored his instrumental output. With 66 tracks totaling over 150 minutes of music, Live is the definitive Ayatollah instrumental collection, a dream come true for beat junkies. While most producers have swtiched to a computer-based setup, Tollah continues to churn out head-nodding concoctions on his vintage Akai MPC 60, saving each beat on an old-school floppy disc. Though he's been perfecting his craft for over 15 years, Tollah doesn't feel like his work is done. "I want to give more to the world," he explains. "I've been sitting on a lot of material. I wanted to get it out at all costs."
