I got a chance to spend some time with Elysia's new Mpressor 500, see what I had to say about it!
The Man of Bronze ft. Henry Canyons, Googie & Amy Leigh Richards is the second single from Doc Savage. The song is a booming mix of hard drums and martial horns, the perfect backdrop for Henry Canyons and Googie to weave competing narratives. Along with the premiere of the new single, we are giving the opportunity for one fan to get a free custom beat from me!

Doc Savage is the new album from Brooklyn producer Willie Green. Inspired by the retrofuturistic aesthetic of its 1930’s pulp fiction namesake,Doc Savage is a hip-hop epic. A classically-trained musician with a resume full of indie-rap bonafides, Green built this album from the ground up, seamlessly melding live instruments into his head-nod aesthetic. He also handled all the sonics from production to mixing and mastering, making this a true labor-of-love.
“I wanted to challenge the artists as well as myself, these aren’t some regular old beats. I wanted to take a lot of musical chances with Doc Savage, and the results are wild,” Green says. “I spent a long time hand picking each emcee for their particular songs and pairing them together.”
Doc Savage features some of independent hip-hop’s most celebrated voices; Open Mike Eagle, Billy Woods, Denmark Vessey, Milo, ELUCID, Has-Lo and Henry Canyons amongst them.
The album also includes a beautiful 20-page lyric book featuring paintings acclaimed Canadian artist Graeme Borland. Five years in the making, Doc Savage is truly Willie Green’s opus and is available Sept 23rd via Backwoodz Studioz.
