You're all in for a treat with this one. If you missed the Day We Landed show last year, then you missed out on one of the funkiest performances in St. Louis hip-hop/funk/soul/whatever else.
Here's the breakdown: Black Spade spontaneously kicking out beats while drummer extraordinaire Dirty Lynt kept the rhythm heavy. Meanwhile DJ Needles was going wild on his tables adding the maddest scratches you could imagine at a live show. All that plus cheap drinks! (Stella was the unofficial drink of the evening if I remember correctly.)
To accompany the brews and beats, Black Spade was kind enough to release and extremely limited The Day We Landed beat tape. This extremely exclusive release was available only to those in attendance on the night of the show.
However, even though everyone who got a chance to get a copy felt ultra special and rocked out to it for months on end, the exclusivity left it relatively unknown to outsiders.
Well, that's no longer a problem. Spade has decided to re-release the Day We Landed Beat Tape. For free! I don't know how long this is going to stay up, so be sure to download and enjoy it now before your time is up.
Believe me, this will be one of the best things you download all year.
