Sweet Soul, Open Drum Breaks & Funky Instrumentals by Colemine Records
When producer Budo sampled "Tiger Trot" by Leroi Conroy earlier this year for "HEROES" by Macklemore & DJ Premier, he told Tracklib the sample immediately transported him to "a neck-snapping '36 Chambers'-type world." That's what the catalog of Ohio-based record label Colemine Records is all about: gritty sounds and neck-snapping beats. This is our selection of four records, ready to be sampled.
"Half-open drum breakbeats, half-funky instrumentals from the Tee See Connection. Featuring breakbeats from Monophonics, Jungle Fire, Soulive, The Jive Turkeys, Los Sosepechos, and The On The Spot Trio. All new breaks ready to be chopped up!"
"These bad boys are HEAVY!! These are the first two tracks from a forthcoming full-length LP effort from Leroi and company. They are both moody as hell and feature some fantastic breakbeats courtesy of Colemine drumming ace Rob Houk."
"Fresh, sweet soul from Akron's Wesley Bright & The Honeytones. These tunes are rough and tough, yet super sweet as well. Maybe that is because lead singer Wesley Bright is also a beekeeper. That's right. He's a sweet soul singer who makes honey. You can't make that up."
