Finally, the producer will answer questions from the group. This will be audio-recorded and archived to Soundcloud for all the world to hear.

“Don’t sleep on these pages which are always updated with new production work and DJ mixes from the impeccable duo, check in and let these boulders of audio euphoria pummel you into dust!! Those unfamiliar with SoundCloud have been seriously missing out on what I feel is an online catalog of some of the best in current production work in any imaginable genre. Superb musicians and DJs lurk under the radar of bullshit commercial nonsense, and fans and creators of great underground music can excavate until they will surely find something they’re into. Happy diggin fams!” -DJ Spaed
Punch3nello is doing big things in Miami right now, and as such we have decided to release another single off of his much-anticipated upcoming EP “Sun Rays & Grays”!
“I’m Different (aka. Clouds Disperse)” is a funky Mr. Owl production that harkens back to the early days of hip-hop, where things were about having fun, feeling good, and getting your life right. The concept of the beat is the calm beauty after a rainstorm, when the clouds disperse and everything comes into focus. Punch tells the story of where he came from and his current jetsetting lifestyle as a musician and mural artist. Take a listen and you’ll understand why this dude is developing such heavy buzz!

Jack Wilson & Mr Owl pair up on this single to bring you an eerie otherworldly beat matched with Jack’s head-scratching rapid-fire verbals.

Our homie Punch3nello from Miami was passing through Pittsburgh, came through Mr Owl’s studio yesterday, and recorded a seven-track EP “Sun Rays & Grays” in one killer session. This brother is the one-take truth – his freestyle game is interplanetary. Mr Owl contributes six of the beats, and Spaed produced the seventh.
It will be some time before the final mix & master is completed, but here’s a one-track preview of the heat that’s coming! “Stagger Home” is a punchy, jazzy jewel that – like many of Mr Owl’s most recent productions – pays homage to his favorite 70s jazz & funk vinyl. Punch wrecks it with flows to make your head spin… the sixteens just keep coming and coming.

“Ya need to get pumped with embalming fluid
You’re already dead for tryin’ to do it
I breathe life into it
My confluence like the three rivers
Rhyme patterns i deliver
Pittsburgh, we don’t mix words”
If you are only going to listen to 15 minutes of new music all year, this is the EP. Five underground hip-hop bangers with a new level of the classic Spaed sound and Jack Wilson’s unrelenting delivery on overdrive. This album is a modern hip-hop masterpiece, and the latest addition to both artists’ prolific catalogs. Free download for a limited time!
“Steel City MC Jack Wilson is back with the brief mixtape/EP Fame, enlisting Pittsburgh turntablist DJ Spaed to produce a challenging, dynamic collection of beats. ”P & LE” possesses the most shadowy, sinister beat of them all, coiling like cool smoke underneath Wilson’s tongue-twisting rhymes. This is pure mix tape nirvana: no hook, no pauses, just some muscular, spartan production and an MC who refuses to take a breath.”
