LOW BUDGET / NO BUDGET COMPILATION

I mentioned this briefly in last week's post and I finally got the master last night, uploaded it and now G.I. is off to SXSW! Enjoy and feel free to respost:
THE LOW BUDGET / NO BUDGET SAGA:
Some point and time around Summer 2009: Earlier in the year I had just been mowed down by a lady driving a brand new Infinity while I was riding my bicycle to work. I sustained a broken elbow, which meant I could not work and the next few months would be consumed with physical therapy, surgery and more physical therapy. I was unable to DJ, unable to play shows and was essentially going insane having been deprived of ability to create noise, an obsession that is typically insatiable even with two good elbows. I had a lot of time on my hands and not much to do. I got my cannabis prescription. I reunited with my homie MC Stinkweed who I had previously worked with in the Shadow People and Shed Dwellaz and introduced him to Luke Sick. Stinkweed was out of work and Luke was working part time so my house became the weekday hangout spot. One day we entered the studio and emerged with “Brain Exploder” which served as the catalyst for this comp. I hit up some of my beat making homies (T.C. Bonelocs and G-Pek) to see if they were down to contribute a couple beats with the plan being to record and release a compilation as cheaply as possible and give it away for free. I invited a bunch of MC’s to come through and rip the tracks and the result is what you are now listening to. Of course, nothing is easy. During the course of the project the motherboard in my Mac needed to be replaced, the hard drive with all the sessions on it crashed and the data needed to be retrieved and two of the MC’s featured were locked up (Tizoe DaVinci is still locked down as I type. Keep your head up homie!). So enjoy and feel free to share this with all your friends. I ended up putting a lot more time and money into this than I planned but the original intent was to give it away for free and that’s just what we fin to do!
Aight chill,

Eons One,

Hi. My name is Tha Jsta from an all west coast blog at fuck-tha-muthaphukkin-police.blogspot.com. I can't figure out how to get in contact with you so I really hope you read this. I am wondering if you can add my link on your blog somewhere. I am also wondering your e-mail address, because I want to ask you something about the Games People Play 12" EP by 51.50 Illegally Insane you posted on 31 December 2008 I think it was.

If you read this, hit a brotha up at thajsta@gmail.com or drop a line in my shout box on my blog. Thanks.

Thanks Pete! We're already back in the studio working on new GI projects as well as a side project inspired by the comp. Hopefully we'll get all that out by Fall 2010!
