New visuals from Portland rapper, Yung Mil. Produced by TMT producers, Reignstate.
Duncan dropped a new album last week on Sneaky Records/MRI called Covers 80s Remixed. The album features Samantha Ronson, El-P, Skylar Grey, Terry Urban and a bunch of other dope artists and producers. Chi Duly produced the first track, “Shout” a chill but neck snapping, mid-tempo electronic piece. Shout became the first single and it’s currently making radio rounds on the adult contemporary circuit.
“Duncan’s manager got ahold of me through my awesome friend Terry Urban to produce a new version of his Tears for Fears cover. For this new version of Shout, I aimed for electro while still retaining the original Tears for Fears vibe. Seeing as electro was born in the 80′s, it wasn’t much of a stretch.”
About six months ago I was ready to launch TMT, my artist management and development company to help bring some new talent to the forefront of Portland and abroad. After signing and working with Reign State, PMO, and Chi Duly, I’ve put together this beat tape to showcase their distinct skill sets as producers. At the same time, this beat tape is a way for me to express myself as an artist with the arrangement through their music and how it relates to my personal life.

TMT producer, Chi Duly, lands the opening track to Mick Boogie’s and Hypetrak’s homage compilation to Adidas Originals with On Cue weaving in between Chi’s 90′s flip instrumental.
Balloons of Haus is house music for the “I’m not really into techno” folks. It’s uptempo but more to the point (free of those minute long intros/breakdowns of arbitrary ambience). The concept was born of my interest in bringing The Weeknd’s vibe to a DJ set. He’s talking about what every other artist you hear in the club is talking about except he’s artistic, emotionally believable. The Weeknd’s subject matter is already club friendly. The pace however was only bedroom friendly. My project still retains that laid back, mellow uptempo R&B vibe but picks up on a harder electro vibe with the Dirty Diana remix. It’s all around a very diverse range of house music genres.
TMT producer, Chi Duly, just dropped a dope mash up of Carly Rae Jepsen’s vocals over instrumentals from a few Calvin Harris tracks. Also, check out the write up in the Huffington Post.
