The BeatTips Manual goes Digital


The much loved BeatTips Manual is now available as digital download.

The BeatTips Manual has been long regarded as the beat making Bible by many in the hip hop and beat making community.  Written by accomplished beat maker, MC and beattips.com founder Amir 'Sa'id' Said, the 400 page book covers five categories in great detail: history, instruction, music theory, business and interviews with hip hop legends including DJ Premier, DJ Toomp, Buckwild, 9th Wonder and Marly Marl.
The BeatTips Manual earns its stripes as a legitimate textbook, accessible to students at college and students of the game alike. (hiphopisread.com)

I'm a big fan of beattips.com and I highly recommend anyone who hasn't checked out his site - or is in doubt as to whether or not to cop the digital download - to see for yourself just how informative and well written Sa'id's work is.  Alternatively, checkout this review by another The New Beat Maker favourite, saintjoe.

With this digital release The BeatTips Manual is set to further solidify its position as the go-to book on beat making, both as an instructional resource and as a cultural document for the beat making rookie and veteran producer alike.

New Music Review: Georgel: ‘Colibrí’

'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making.




It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.


A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter.

A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter.  ‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood …
