Tall Black Guy x Kevin Moore – “Speak Your Mind” (Don’t Be Afraid Edit)

Tall Black Guy just released “Speak Your Mind” (Don’t Be Afraid Edit) – with Kevin Moore. Digging the old school Motownish, dusky cover art for this work.

What up folks, hope all is well.
Remember folks, always speak your mind. Don’t hold anything back if something is bothering you.
TBG

Tall Black Guy – “A Franklin Black Excursion” (EP)

Always interesting to see where producers ‘go’ when they let their minds wander. Rhythm Roulette would not have done this justice. Didn’t really even know it was going down like this ’til TBG hit us in the inbox with a note that the cooking was done and the plate was served. Truly an “Excursion”… Go on the trip with him.

Detroit Artist-Producer Tall Black Guy Speaks On His ‘Playlist Retreat’ Experience (Video)

At first, watching this we’re going, “Really, Tall Black Guy. You feel the need to tell folks WHO The Magnificient DJ Jazzy Jeff is.” Then we think about it… Jeff has had an INCREDIBLE career that spans DECADES… appreciated by fans who were barely walking (or not even conceived) when he was with The Fresh Prince on the reg. So cool. Also cool, and very appreciated, is this clip of TBG speaking on how dope it was being at DJ Jazzy Jeff’s annual Playlist Retreat.

Dope! If you look back on here, TBG did a li’l som’n som’n on the 2015 event #DownSinceDayOne

Yoooo! This TBG “The Heart Of The Town” beat is SLAPPING, right? Imagine being at a listening party, chilling and nodding to this. Maybe you’re a producer/beatmaker, and you wanna drop something into the rotation and get some feedack/love. Well, that’s what LofiSocial is about (check out the link).

14KT + Tall Black Guy – “Chop Field”

They way the song came about is as dope, if not doper, than the actual single itself! Let Tall Black Guy tell you the story behind “Chop Field” coming into being…

So one of the coolest experiences happened this weekend with my homie 14KT. While he was on his travel excursion across Europe, KT came to visit me in Norwich where I reside at the moment. This was our first time meeting in person after hearing about each others work and talking over the internet for the last few years. Whilst discussing ideas on how to make a new track, we decided to take our field recorders outside and record all kinds of sounds around the city of Norwich. This is a work in progress. Here’s what we came up with. Look out for the KT x TBG collabo coming in the near future. Peace!!

Tall Black Guy – “Far From Human”

Tell me. Why, why…why’d Tall Black Guy flip “Human Nature” (gotta sing it in your head like Michael Jackson [RIP] to get the effect)? Haaaa… good stuff though. Stream and hear for yourself.

Howdy folks, it has been a while since I uploaded a new track. I was super inspired by Just Blaze’s flip of MJ’sHuman Nature. I wanted to give it another shot. I flipped it previously for my TBG Vs MJ Remix Suite a few years back. Let me know what you all think.

Upon listening, you kinda get the title of the flip track, too, right?

Tall Black Guy x Eric Lau x kidkanevil x Mr. Thing – “Thing Leaves The House” (Instrumental EP)

Great product above. In honor of RSD (Record Store Day) 2015, Tall Black Guy, Eric Lau, kidkanevil and Mr. Thing put out “Thing Leaves The House.” Can’t tell it better than DJ Gilla did for the First Word Records write-up:

Running an independent record label in 2015 is a tricky, (and some would say foolish) task. It is of course, a privilege to be given the responsibility to get an artist’s music out into the world, but the label’s side of the job is more about spreadsheets and sales ledgers than champagne and cigars. That is why last year’s Record Store Day was genuinely one of the most memorable and important days in the life of First Word. We released our first RSD release – Nothing Leaves The House, a project that was dreamt up on RSD 2012, and finally shared two years later. Unlike most records we release, we were able to be there as music fans discovered the record in the shops – an experience that was inspiring, humbling and ever so slightly addictive.

So we were always going to return with part two in 2015, this time with a twist. A year on from the day the trio of Eric Lau, Tall Black Guy and kidkanevil visited Mr. Thing’s collection to sample his records (where nothing could leave the house), we gathered them at London’s Love Vinyl record shop where he had brought one record from his collection for each producer. Their challenge was to make a beat from the individually chosen records: the results massively exceeded our expectations. Originally Mr. Thing was going to make a track from something in his collection too, but the three producers decided that he should go through the same process as they would. They picked a record from the racks of the shop (they had to find one he didn’t already own first) and his beat was created from that. The result is 4 tracks that truly capture the personalities of each producer, and a record that is born out of a heartfelt love of records – we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.

We’ll be back for round 3 in 2016…

DJ Gilla, April 2015

The Black Opera – “Beginning Of The End” feat. Georgia Anne Muldrow (Prod. By Tall Black Guy) [Video]

Oh yeah. TBO is the way you get things started. Your day. Your week. Hell, make it “The Great Year” (album link below). Mind-body exercise with Georgia Anne Muldrow taking us to breaks; over a beat banged out by Tall Black Guy. Deep dopeness…

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.

The Black Opera enlist the Queen Georgia Anne Muldrow to reinforce the multilinear concept of the beginning and the end. This songs nuance stands for power, rebirth, triumph, completion, and exultation. It is TBO’s audible Alpha and Omega.”

Tall Black Guy – “In My Head”

artworks-000067052312-gh7urx-t500x500

Ha! Tall Black Guy chopped a sample and dropped this jam “In My Head,” and he was sick! So is this track, man. Step it up, y’all. It’s 2014, and producers are doing the damn thing… even on sick leave! And now a word from the producer:

Howdy folks, I hope all is well. Today was supposed to be a cool birthday for me but, it was kind of a bummer do to the fact that I have a cold. The good thing is that I was browsing through the beat INN and I was listening to other peoples weekly chops and I got inspired. So I decided to make a beat in bed with just my laptop and earphones. At least I got to take my frustration out this sample. Enough of me rambling. Hope you enjoy!!

Get well soon.

Leave well enough alone? Nah. While some producers sample James Brown’s “The Funky Drummer”Tall Black Guy does that, then gets into it and flips it futuristic. Turns it inside out for his “Funky Drummers In A Space Suit” (Slap and Blap Edit).

‘Finally, I was able to give this sample a run for it’s money. The Funky Drummer has been cracked!’
