In my studio circa 05 trying to pose like I know what I'm doing
Motola by ThatsThatLabel
I made this one in the 05. I have no idea why its named Motola. At the time I was really influnced by Dilla and Hi-tek so you can probably here a lot of that style in this one.. If you don't hear it then I'm obviously on one. If I remember right there are some elements of some old Chinese records from the 60's. I was intrigued by these chinese bands being inspired by american rock bands of the time. I always thought the way they mixed the records had a nice quality to it...Good luck figuring it out where I got it beatmakers cuz I can't remember.If you do, please message me.

My people GetLiveRo put me on to these cats the Jealous Guys. I was blown away when he told me they were from the Bay. And its good to see new artists appreciating this classic style of hip hop. This is definitely in my rotation for a few.

ThatsThat has got a bunch of goodies dropping in 2011. We are proud to be soon introducing the ThatsThat Sampler album, our first Hip Hop compilation album ever. With music produced by Dj Vinroc, Rel, and Sophomore and featuring the talent of some of the Bay's most gifted MC's, Mike Baker the Bike Maker of the Honor Roll, Paulie Rhyme, J Billion and Lunar Heights just to name a few, The project is looking to deepen the Bay's already rich tradition in solid Hip Hop music. "I wanted to make a fun hip hop record with a lot of Positivity" label owner Vinroc says,"I wanted to put together a project that really showcased the the underground hip hop talent the the Bay has to offer, and we do have so much to offer". Leading the charge will be the Vinroc produced "Easy for you" featuring Mike Baker of the Honor Roll. Vinroc states, "Mike Baker is quickly becoming one of my fav MC's, his lighthearted and fun lyrics remind of the Native Tongue days, the Hip Hop I grew up with was so much fun and I cant help but be brought back when I hear him. We specifically worked on a track that would really bring that quality to the forefront." With contributions from REL of Distortion 2 Static fame and young up and coming producer Sophomore, solid music is surely present.
Also keep your Interwebs open for the official Music Video for the single. As you can see the editing is in Full Effect. Stay thirsty my Friends...

As technology specifically the social aspect of it becomes more and more integrated into our lives, its forever changing the way we communicate. Music has always been a great way for people to communicate and Millenium Social represents exactly that: A meeting of the minds and hearts of some great artists. MS is the first Dance/Alternative music project being released on ThatsThat featuring some stellar talent. The idea was for great Songwriters, Djs, Singers
and Music producers to connect and create soulful and fun music. The
lead single "I Feel Your Energy" was co-produced by Dj Teeko who was
recently featured on Mark Ronson's latest album and co-produced and
written by Dj Vinroc. "I Feel Your
Energy" is an ode to the beautiful Energy expressed on the dance floor
and the freedom letting loose can bring to your soul.
