Weekend Reading 33

Lansing artist James Dehuelves is putting together a mixtape to raise awareness of SPM's case, and he's looking for contributing artists. This is the kind of project that has the potential to reach all over the world so if you think you can add something, contact him and let him know. Here's a little about him:

What's your experience? How long have you been involved in music?

 I started 8 years ago by buying a mixer. It was a dream that me and my brother had for the longest time, so I built a computer and started with a sound recording progam. the sound was not all that great but we still put a mixtape out; but as the years went on and I started networking, I found out of real progams and diffent kinds of mics and sound proofed a room. From there I dropped Countdown to Iceage.

 About a year after that, I dropped Iceman Presents Iceage, then I just pushed back and worked with some of my artists, known as AK47, to put something of theirs out.  So it's been some years working on the music; still working on getting it right, you know. My most recent mixtape, Ice City, is a mixtape with many artists from around the country. It was more like a promo mixtape, to get my name back out there.

As far as engineering, I'm finishing up my degree up at Lansing Community College; I have one more year but I have gained a lot of smarts up there. My brother has been like my back bone; when no one else has been, he produced many of my mixtapes and also the album art. He also makes his music and helps with the company.

What's the inspiration for this new project, Can't Stop the Hustle?

Since the first time I ever heard an SPM cd, that's when I started looking up to him. He made me feel like no matter what you go through, you can still make it. He made a big difference in my life and made me feel as if  one day, if I put my all into it, I can make it too.
I been following SPM through out my life with his music, and no matter what I can still put on a cd and listen to it, and remember old times when my mom was still alive.

I'm looking forward to seeing this mixtape completed. This is the kind of awareness-raising project that I know a lot of you can get behind, and I hope you'll consider lending your skills.

I would also like to see some original music, but beats don't just drop out of thin air...If you've got that talent, why not donate a little of your time?

it could be an album or a mixtape not much of a difference. I mean look at the last mixtape that Ludacris made (1.21 gigawatts) it was all new beats and basically was a free album. So they can do the same thing with this mixtape.
