Local emcee Kwalified is set to release his latest mixtape We Makin’ Music Doe on December 18th. The mixtape, which is produced in its entirely by local producer Bad News, is the third offering from Kwalified. His previous two releases were Songs for Listening and The Kevin Arnold EP.
“This is my favorite solo release so far,” says Kwalified. “People can expect many different styles, and a lot of fun from this project. Bad News really gave me a lot to work with as far as the beats. So I’m pretty stoked.”
The 10-track mixtape was a project that has been in the works for quite some time “Me and Kwalified did a track together maybe one or two years ago called “Heads Will Roll”, says Bad News. “We’ve always talked about wanting to do a mixtape together for a while, and everything just finally came together. What really makes this mixtape work is that we are both fans of many different genres of music. We could both go from listening to The Naked & Famous and Two Door Cinema Club, to Juicy J and Rick Ross. The mixtape features samples from Miike Snow, The Naked & Famous, M83 and Giorgio Moroder, amongst others.
Kwalified will be having a free listening party for We Makin’ Music Doe on December 15th, at Lotus Downtown (34 N. Hotel St.) from 6-9 p.m. We Makin’ Music Doe will be available for download on December 18th at thehouseofwork.com.
