Urbindex Featured in Team Supreme Vol. 59

The eclectic beat collective known as Team Supreme releases a new beat tape every week. I have been following them for several months now and I am always impressed with their output. For their 59th edition, they allowed the public to submit as well. They picked their favorites and made a heavy mix. I was fortunate enough to be on it among several other dope producers. Anyway, listen and download here:

 

I also uploaded my track separately for free download if you would like:

Introducing: Alloy X

Dating back all the way to the days before I was even Urbindex, I’ve had an insatiable interest in starting a record label or collective. But until pretty recently, I didn’t have the proper resources or experience to effectively execute such a task. Well, I think its about time.

Introducing Alloy X:

An Alloy is a substance composed of several different metals. Alloy X applies that definition to music; an eclectic mixture of creative works. Alloy X was founded by me (Urbindex) and Luke Spry in September of 2012 and officially launched in January of 2013 with the intention of providing a platform for various talented artists to present their work without being overshadowed by the often aimless nature of the internet.
No egos, No fabrication, just art and music that is worthy of your attention.

Let the games begin.
Hit up our newly launched website and check out our releases! Alloy-X.com

Enjoy!

Hazey Dope & Urbindex “Outy 5000″ NEW MUSIC VIDEO

So yesterday I dropped a new music video for the track I did with my dude Hazey Dope…
We heard the beat, “Bugg’n” by TNGHT (Hudson Mohawke & Lunice) a few weeks ago and immediately knew we had to write to it…
We then saw that XV had done a song over it on his latest mixtape, but he didn’t really do it justice so we weren’t worried about it. So we recorded the song and shot the video.
THEN we saw that Asher Roth released a song using the same beat on the 4th of July… So we knew we had to move quickly. I finished the video editing and released on the 5th to make sure everyone knows we aren’t jocking. Asher is the man though.

anyway, check out this video…

A/V x Urbindex “Urban Dinosaurs” Free EP

During my winter break while I was back in Cleveland for a bit, I went over to A/V’s crib to get an official French Connection linkup going. He immediately played me a beat and I wrote the whole song and recorded it right on the spot in the lab right then. That track turned out to be “Eggnog Surprise (Electric)” and it was so dope that I knew we had to shoot a video.

Check out the video here:

We shot it right in my dining room with a disco ball, some christmas lights, and some equipment on the table. Word to the homie AdAb behind the camera.
The simplicity and vibrant colors of the video fits the song perfectly. After realizing how dope Eggnog Surprise was, we were like ok lets do a full EP!
We just continued to link for the rest of that week. I went over there, he would show me a beat, I write to it on the spot, and record it right then. So we finished the whole EP in less than a week.

Pure dopeness. It’s produced entirely by A/V and all of the rapping is me. I love linking up like this because I get to really get into the technicality of rhyming, because I’m normally focusing primarily on production.

We present to you…. Urban Dinosaurs:
