"Live from the Mel Box" Beat Tape Vol.III Mello Mel's third Beat Tape installment and in the true spirit of beat tape artists and hip hop instrumental enthusiasts this tape was made for seamless playback. It's to be noted that this instrumental collage was made with Reason 4.0 & Pro Tools 10, then recorded to a TDK Normal Bais 90min cassette tape through a Technics RS-TR255 then re-recorded. This technique was used as a medium for the characteristics of an actual beat tape, also for 90's hip hop nostalgia to prove analogue still rules in a digital world. But "Tape Hiss" and "Fat Drums" is what it's about.
