Google+ Beathearts: Producer: Black Monk


Producer: Black Monk

This is some good stuff that's been on heavy rotation since some years back. Black Monk of the Poo-Bah Fam released the 12 inch 'Monkmusic' in 2006. Only 500 were pressed on the vinyl, so chances are you've never heard of this sublime piece of westcoast downtempo. 8 tracks deep, this is exactly what you'd expect from the super-consistent Poo-Bah records: beats, texture, and production finesse.

Black Monk did the 'Day & Night EP' together with Ras G back in 2004. He has since then offered a live instrumental on Plug Research's compilation 'Sound Of LA Vol.2', also the 7 inch 'Northern Lights' in 2009 and has future releases scheduled. He's been doing session work with artists like Ras G, Ta’Raach, Take, Kutmah, Sacred, and Snoop Dogg. Black Monk along with Ras G and Ron Stivers are the founders of the Poo-Bah Label.

Poo-Bah also been releasing some other heat: Ta'Raach's 10 inch 'Raach City Riot' with 2 banger beats and the all intrumental beattape from SA-RA mastermind Shafiq Husayn, 'Shafiq presents Jank Random vs. Earl Leonne: The Frequency Clash', but more about him on a later note.
