I bought my AKAI s20 after being introduced to it by a local gearhead/producer in my hometown of Iowa City IA. After the passing of my grandmother, Betty Wickham, I was given a $500 inheritance, with which I ordered my own S20. I also inherited her record collection and you can hear some of the samples I used from those records on songs like "100 Plus," and "Here We Go."
Other songs I have released over past projects have used this machine including, "Doo-Doo," "Still Reignin" and "Blue Reign," to name a few.
After producing most of my beats using SoundEdit Pro or my Tascam PortaStudio (4-track recorder), this little machine took me to different places in my production. The 4 track sequencer was similar in workflow to my 4-track tape recorder, but allowed me to get cleaner and more interesting ways of looping. The limitations of the memory storage using floppy discs was sometimes frustrating, but as with everything I do in hip-hop, I used what I had and figured out a way to make it do something cool. The rough edits and imprecise methods are the things that make these beats interesting to me, especially the limitations of memory that only allow for a certain number of layers before dropping out tracks, as well as the resample function making the drums extra crunchy. I hope you enjoy this slice of Hip-Hop and look forward to volumes 2 and 3 coming soon.

BEATHSMITH MEDORE (DJ)
GEMWORK RADIO PHX
Born and raised in Wyoming, it was in this unlikely spot that Beatsmith Medore fell in love with hip hop music. After high school, he moved to Colorado and was introduced to the art of DJ’ing. Soon after, he found himself enthralled in the culture.
Starting out freestyle emceeing, he learned how to make beats for nightly mic sessions. As he progressed, it was the beat making and DJ’ing that drove him. He aspired to learn everything he could about the craft. While still in Colorado, Medore formed 3rd Phloor Productions as a platform to collab with likeminded lovers of hip hop.
In 2010, Beatsmith moved to AZ and found that Hip Hop had an even stronger presence. He very quickly started making beats for multiple local and interstate artists. As well as building on the 3rd Phloor catalogs. He now represents Balance Brothers, 3rd Phloor Productions and the Gem Work Radio show. He also continues to study the culture, work on his craft, collab with artists and support the hip hop community #BeatsmithLivin.
