Directly from Big Cats’ Facebook Page: “Eric Mayson is one of the most important musicians in the Twin Cities right now.
He and I recently recorded this cover of my favorite John Lennon song, Isolation.
It brings a fresh perspective to a song that’s as relevant today as it was when it was written more than 40 years ago.
Please take a moment to listen and share if it resonates with you.”

I took the opportunity to listen, and loving John Lennon, covers (in general), and being a fan of Big Cats, I thought I would share.  Have a listen to this wonderful take on a classic.  The production value lends itself a bittersweet mood, along with Eric Mayson’s powerful vocals; ‘Isolation’ is an ambient and touching song.

DJ Khalil Runs Us Through The Making of “Kind of a Big Deal”

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , on Friday, August 28, 2009 by Tim Althaus

If you’ve been sleeping under a rock, it would make sense that you have no idea who DJ Khalil is. This guy have been making some of the craziest beats in the Hip-Hop game for the last few years. In this video with Hip Hop Official, Khalil takes us through the process that was implemented while making the Clipse track, “Kind of a Big Deal“. I love the fact that there are absolutely no samples in this track, don’t get me wrong I love sampling but I think it’s much cooler when producers chop live instrumentation. Everything in this video makes me have a greater appreciation for Kahlil’s talent, and this beat in general. (Side Note* I love how they play the beat for Evidence, “All Said & Done” in the video)
