Massive aka MASSDOG feat: Shut eye horizon

June 22, 2019
By all means dope. Two new Shut eye horizon tracks produced by Massive aka MASSDOG  MC/producer Massive, a.k.a. Mass Dog, has been making highly-individualized rap music in Los Angeles since the West Coast takeover of the 1990s. He was mentored by Compton’s Most Wanted’s DJ Slip and DJ Unknown back then and was quickly recognized as an important artist and creator in the L.A. scene. He has given his life to the game, has a discography that goes back to ‘92, and has evolved many times since then. These days, Massive puts down what he calls Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop or Grown Folks Rap, a sound that puts him squarely in his own creative zone and gives him a strong identity as a performer.  Plan was to get these songs on a Beetback compilation. Somehow Beetback.blogspot unfortunately does not exist anymore. I sincerely hope someday all the incredible documented material on this website will resurface. Cuts by Syah and “Coming out of my brain” feat: RhythmaticExpect a super limited 7 inch soon of these exclusive tracks on limited item lovers  

inDepth’s 7th album release – Resfeber Out today

March 1, 2019
We are so enthusiastic, up to par, stonecold fresh, def and eager to tell the world including it’s robots about our new album that we’ve spend more than 30 seconds trying to think of an alternative word to adequately and originally convey our happy happy joy joy groove about our 7th official inDepth – Resfeber release. Like u care… Let us introduce ourselves again… your parents might know of us. We are a hiphop group, (come correct): an exceptionally steady, slept on, hiphop group. Rare! Formed 20 years ago in the Netherlands (no not in the U.S.) by frontman N and frontman Syah. We’ve had moments of fleeting recognition throughout the late ninetees and the 21st century. 20 years later, we are still wondering what’s next. From our early work with Blatta, PSS, the Living legends, Debbie, the Escape artists, Rhythmatic, Mr Moodswing & Shut eye horizon to our last album with Name Science, Sach and Inoe oner. We still do what we do. Yup we have day jobs, families, kids, Younger at heart and co-dependency issues in keen need of musical evaluation. Even without listening, It would it be a fair assumption that we suffer from life in general and it’s rules at any point while going through the trials and tribulations of being human inbetween fake fiction and the “No I’m not gonna keep it real” thinkers and made up authorities. The quest to finding longevity like ours – or any other DIY musician inspired by, for that matter – is not a difficult one. Love for the music, creating, rhyming, exploring, fun and most important friendship. This album follows the “as always” pioneering attempts to do us as we cope with daily life, love, obsoleteness, health issues, recovery, the parental travel and “no we don’t want a career in music/ social media”. Rubbing up unlikely forms against one another, tampering with synths, drummachines and vinyl… messing through words, ideas and thoughts. Resfeber is when anxiety and anticipation are tangled together 2B / want 2 be / wannabee social or obtain goals?—? if there are no better real-world alternatives. {He was distraught and told me that he wanted to kill himself. Suicide bomber style, if the 30-year-old was strapped to a gurney, taken to a psychiatric hospital, and was monitored for safety would somebody acknowledge the fact that abstract meaning is hard to grasp.} You understand where the “duck” part of chuck-n-duck came from.

Shut eye horizon – Innerstellar space and parallel view. New video!!!

September 8, 2018
Finally, Video Premiere!!! This took some time, almost 38 months? Recorded right before N’s marriage. In fact this suit, a few beers and a night out made it the perfect ambiance to propose to her. After 21 years of steady dating. Bass in your face!!! This is probably our filthiest video shoot ever. We went down under! into the abyss. Innerstellar toxic basement. Breathing quality indoor air was extremely bad. Yup we got sick, sick of it all… Anyway, support us and rock with us. Pick up our new album and the older ones. We appreciate it!!!

Hello all. We hope this news finds you well. On our end, we still tear shit up for the sake of ourselves and our love for music and rhymin’. We’ve been quite busy since our debut album Überhaupt came out (but with a break here and there). We’re writing because we’ve got news! We recorded a new album called “Alec Baldwin” and we are not preparing its release. We drop it today. We drop it like it’s hot. We still have a lot to do. We have a few music videos to finish, promo to take care of, a press agent to look out for, interviews to plan, limited vinyl to cut and a shitload of other things that we love to do and are keeping us occupied.

Therefore, we are dropping our new album on limited cassette and asking you to buy it. We are also offering you an exclusive boardgame, 7’ inch vinyl and yellow Shut eye horizon – Alec Baldwin T-Shirt.

Interview InDepth (the Find magazine)

February 8, 2017
First published on the Find magazine, but offline right now. They will be back! You guys have been around the Dutch hip hop scene for decades. Where did it all start? S: A friend of mine introduced me to hiphop in 85. He brought some hiphop (tapes) to a soccer summer camp. The Fatboys, UTFO, Run DMC, Electros and such . He was a human beatboxer and one day he invited me to go with him to a radioshow that did an interview with some local rappers & beatboxers. That really started it off. I was already into graffiti, but now started to practice my beatbox skills. I hooked up with Rox, who was a rapper in a crew called The Beatfreaks. We used to bumrush drive-in shows and perform at discos. One or two mics, me doing some beatboxing and him rapping. Later I joined the Beatfreaks. First as a beatboxer during battles, but soon after that I started making beats on drummachines, making pause tapes and adding scratches to that. That’s where it all started for me: (radio)shows, battles, learning how to program beats, recording demos. In the 90s, I was part of L-West Productions, Wrecking Crew, AOK, More Serious & Sources Of Specialment. N: The first albums by Souls of Mischief, Saafir, Casual, Del, the Pharcyde & Freestyle Fellowship really kicked things off for me. Before that I listened to hiphop but was more focused on skateboarding. I was introduced to hiphop in 89 by my old skate homie Ricky D. We used to listen to all the old tapes in his red Suzuki van, while driving to the skatespots and all that. Back then I wasn’t really into that Gangsta rap era, so the more alternative energy & originality, toying with syllables, and laid back vibe of the Hieros and the Pharcyde were really appealing to me. I always used to borrow instrumental vinyl from the local library, to practice and evolve my freestyle skills. My first group back in 93 was called BCP. That’s when I met my beatcreator DJ Smooth Cee. We made the first real songs together and founded Sunstreet Ingredients Productions. Which was a collective of mc’s creating dope music. We released lot’s of homemade tapes. I mean these tapes have become rarities!. I’m still looking for my own solo tape! Haha. Later on Ricky D introduced me to 4LG, who was in the group More Serious with Syah. That’s how I met Syah and he invited us to record at his studio. After More Serious decided to split up 4LG joined BCP and later on we became the group called N&Blatta. S: I was pretty broke at that time. Living a thrifty life as a student, but fortunately one of the guys from my crew (Romeo) was a big spender when it came to hardware like samplers and mixers. I was allowed to use it at my place, so I was constantly focused on producing and mixing. I loved to invite guys

Name science & inDepth – Atomic Mass (Weight) Ar (VINYL TEASER Audio snippets)

April 23, 2016
Hey Guys, Let’s celebrate! The new inDepth album with Name science is most likely out on vinyl next week. Recorded late 2014 / early 2015, finished spring 2015 and was supposed to drop right after the summer 2015. To get this project on vinyl was completely nuts. Delay after delay, different artists working on cover design (Big ups to Bamski & Blatta for finally gettin the job done) and a tremendous backlog for the presses even though the plant was running 24/7. We expect the records to arrive at www.limiteditemlovers.com next week. For the US supporters a few weeks later. Taking delight in being able to weather this little storm that came to get this out on vinyl. We are really proud that we did it. It was fun, it was an adventure and we feel extremely fortunate. We’ve gotten to work with Sach (the Nonce/ GPAC) and Inoe (GPAC), 2 amazing talented people, and to learn from them, which is why we are doing this. Timeless / #Noofficialreleasedate #2020, Underground hiphop is still alive.
