UPDATE: Songs removed. Stream the mixtape, as well as his mixtape West Side of the Moon (a Pink Floyd remix) over HERE at Dert’s official site.
Loyal ATG readers might remember my multiple posts last year on Dert, a versatile producer and remix mastermind from West Covina. His remixtape Sometimes I Rhyme Slow, which featured ATG-favorite Jose Gonzalez’s instrumentals spliced with some of the hottest hip-hop artists, including Common, Kanye, and Nas. He chops up and splices parts of Jose Gonzalez’s Veneer, then adds snares, drums, and other instrumentals. Finally, he tosses in some of the hottest verses in hip-hop to create a unique, cross-genre sound.
Enough review though, let’s get to the reason behind this post. This morning in my inbox, I see an e-mail from a man that calls himself “Derty Gonzalez”. My jaw dropped when I realized that Dert was back, already releasing a beat tape of Jose Gonzalez’s newest release, In Our Nature (one of my favorite albums of the year). After listening to the entire mixtape, In My Nature: A Beat Tape by Dert, multiple times today, I have decided that Dert is a genius. You don’t have to have heard In Our Nature yet to enjoy the mixtape, as it’s flawless. Drop everything you’re doing and download the entire mixtape for free off of Dert’s website. And if you weren’t convinced yet, listen to my two personal favorites; “Down the Line” and “Drip Drop”.
