Several days ago I told you about a new beat tape that Madden Miles was working on in conjunction with East Coast-based hip-hop site TheMadBloggers.com, and today I'm able to give you the entire project.
"Large Marge Sent Me" shows a level up in Miles' sample chop-based production style and gives an indication that he's beginning to truly find himself and who he wants to be as a producer.
Some of the breaks and samples used are familiar, but that doesn't mean the overall feeling of what's being created should be discounted in any way.
Of the many stand out tracks, "Frances Fights" is my favorite and feels like a selection that could play out in an intense scene in a movie – maybe a heist scene or something.
Go and hit TMB.com and tell them Milwaukee UP sent you!
