Back in 2006 my “official” production credits and releases were a bit lacking (and possibly still lacking). Granted, I had made beats for numerous independent projects and produced quite a few artists, but none of their projects really took off and got enough hype to put me on the proverbial “map”. I decided I wanted to release something on my own. Keep in mind this is right as iTunes and digital distribution was just starting to take off and there was no Bandcamp or Soundcloud. Enter “Don’t Sleep! Classic Instrumentals”. I dropped a few grand into this beat tape, in which I added14 hip hop instrumentals that were mixed/mastered, and packaged. Needless to say I didn’t sell 1,000 physical copies of the project. I easily recouped the cost of the album with digital downloads, licensing, etc. but it was my first lesson that music is truly hard to sell and turning a profit can be near impossible without a following. I’m actually giving away the remaining physical copies of the project with my custom SP-1200 Flash Drives. The production on the project is NO WHERE near the caliber of my new stuff. This was almost 5 years ago and I feel like my beats have improved 10-fold. My mixing and arranging skills are multitudes better. Long story short, the project is dated. People have told me its dope and has some of their favorite hip hop instrumentals on it, but its still dated. Ive decided that its time to give it away, meaning as a FREE DOWNLOAD! All I ask in return is that people buy my new projects like Access – Immortal’s – “The Legacy”. I’d love to shoot a video for this song, but my budget constraints don’t permit it unless people are supporting the movement.

This might be overdue, but here it is… My 2006 Beat Tape, “Don’t Sleep! Classic Instrumentals”… Download it, share it, don’t sell the beats, record something over the songs, etc. Just put… “Produced by Alkota”
