K-DEF & 45 KING BACK TO THE BEAT Vinyl Record
When K-Def mentioned to his friends at Redef that he knew pioneering producer 45 King, it led to two questions: "What is he up to and when can we work with him?" The 45 King was only a phone call and a 10 minute drive away. After initiating the recording session, K immediately went into A&R mode to complete "Back to the Beat," an instrumental exhibition that features the two producers trading ideas. During the last several years, K-Def has arguably proven to be the hardest working man in the production business, consistently releasing at least 4 albums of brand new conceptual material annually. From working under Marley Marl in the early 90's to producing for P. Diddy in the late 2000's, K-Def's career has eclipsed two decades, but it was a man by the name of DJ Mark the 45 King who inspired K years before his professional career began. The 45 King has been behind some the biggest names in hip-hop and beyond, from Gangstarr, Eric B & Rakim, to Jay-Z, Eminem and even Madonna. Conceptually, it is not the first release of it's kind as some may remember 45 King collabs with Louie Louie or the T.C.S. in the late 80's/ early 90's. Sonically, the album is composed of 2 personalities that communicate, compliment and compete while the audience is engaged. 45 King leads the show while K-Def is his lead soloist. In pure form, both identities are on display showcasing the technicality in simplicity taking a "crawl before you walk" approach. In the immortal words of T. La Rock, Redefinition Records is proud to present "Back to the Beat". There's more than enough hard drums and catchy samples to live up to the title. Thank you K-Def for making history in 2014 with the 45 King.
