Twin Cities people should already know but Last Of The Record Buyers Is a Producer based event created by Kevin Beacham (Fifth Element/Rhymesayers) and Brandon Allday (Big Quarters). After 5 years of hosting a series of production events at various locations including Scribble Jam, Soundset, Dinkytowner, Institute Of Production & Recording, and Fifth Element, they are now excited to announce their first compilation, "Collaboration's The Key".
Kevin and Brandon reached out to a wide range of Producers, MCs, and DJs to come out with 21 unique collaborations. In most all of the cases Kevin Beacham and Brandon Allday connected the artists together in an attempt to get people to work with artists they had never connected with, creating unique opportunities. The result is an impressive collection of songs ranging from boom-bap hip hop, conceptual wordplay, soulful r&b, human beatbox, abstract stylings, conscious thought, turntablism, human beatboxing, and more!
