Hey everybody! It’s Jud Nester aka Delmos Wade …the purveyor of this fine Blog here!
I just started this new site www.drumnest.com
I realize I don’t have a personal relationship with most of my blogg visitors, so I want to give you some of the back story so you can get to know what I’m, and my new project Drum Nest, is all about……
My Name is Jud Nester and I have been involved, engulfed and active in music and the music biz since I was 10 years old (26 years…damn time flies.. haha)! A majority of my time has been spent in the studio engaged in the creative process and I have enough dues payed in the lab to earn the title Producer. Hip Hop music was my genre specific starting point and through the years I have grown and matured into every musical genre and style and have developed a wide spreading taste as well as an immense passion for all music and it’s creators! Coming from a hip hop background, I have always took great pride in my Drums and Drum Sounds, I always believed the drums drive the song, whether it’s their style that grabs your attention or the sonic punch they can deliver when done right, they are always a vastly potent ingredient to any song. I’ve been collecting every great drum sound I could get my hands on for the last 2 decades and I have used my sound schooling and experienced ear to engineer, stack and process each one to get them sonically “Big and Bad Ass”….. Now I am compiling these sounds into compilations for other producers and musicians to have access to! I’m not stopping with just my own drum sounds either, I have started to reach out to other Producers and Musicians, that I think are amazing, to wrangle up some great drums from them as well! Already I have some real real exciting sounds pouring in from excessively talented individuals! As I get these sounds compiled into compilations I will release them on www.drumnest.com for everyone. My personal sounds are cataloged under the Drum Nest name (Drum Nest vo1 [140 sounds] and Drum Nest snack pack [20 sounds]), everyone else that I’m getting sounds from will be presented like a record with their name and rep on them! Special thank you to my great friend and musical collaborator Andreas Greyboy Stevens (Dj Greyboy) for being my first contributor with Greyboy’s MVD (Most Valuable Drums) . Grey is a super solid producer with numerous years of success in the game and he blessed Drum Nest with some gems from his stacks of Drum Sounds (available now). I hope you all go check it out and help it grow with me and to all my Producers and Beat Makers jump on in and get involved! It would be greatly appreciated if anyone and everyone would tell their friends and fam that make music about this and “share” http://www.drumnest.com with your FB peeps to help spread the word and make this something special ! Hope everyone is having a great day and I’ll be postin’ up all the progress here …..enjoy! and thank you.

Greyboy’s MVD (Most Valuable Drums) – 55 Drum Sounds from this Legendary Producer and DJ

16 10 2012


Through the years there have always been certain individuals who’s music excels and persist through time with certified staying power…. Rare as that is, it is the most sought after goal for any artist to attain, most commonly expressed in the single word  Timeless.

“To achieve a timeless piece of work is to achieve art”-Delmos Wade

In 1993 Greyboy released his first album,.”Freestylin'” , it became a surprise underground hit that became a building block of the early hip-hop/jazz movement and Freestylin’ was to be the foundation for a long recording career….

Fast forward to 2012…..Several albums and accolades later Greyboy has collaborated with a number of differnent artists from Fred Wesley of the J.B.’s to AG (Showbiz and AG). His music has been featured in feature films like Get Shorty and Celtic Pride to video games like The Kelly Slater Surf Pro as well as commercial placements in nation wide campaigns with companies like Budweiser. All the while staying true to what he believes is good music and sticking to his guns like a sniper!

To amass this kind of career in such an excessively competitive industry like music          “ya gotta have some damn good ears”!!!

Greyboy’s proven ears and taste made him a prime candidate for DrumNest !!!! With his attention to detail and knack for making it knock, we here at DrumNest are proud to present you with 55 Drum Sound Bangers straight from the lab of Greyboy….Enjoy!

Pete Rock

25 02 2010

Peter Phillips (born June 21, 1970 in Bronx, New York), better known by his stage name Pete Rock, is an American record producer, DJ and rapper. He rose to prominence in the early 1990s as one half of the critically acclaimed group Pete Rock & CL Smooth. After the duo went their separate ways, Rock continued with a solo career that has garnered him worldwide respect, though little in the way of mainstream success. Along with groups such as Stetsasonic, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr, Rock played a major role in the merging of elements from jazz into hip hop music (also known as jazz rap). He is widely recognized as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time, and is often mentioned alongside DJ Premier and RZA as one of the mainstays of 1990s East Coast hip hop production. Pete Rock is also the older brother and younger cousin, respectively, of rappers Grap Luva and Heavy D.

Grazing in the Trash – The Soul Fire Funk 45 Collection

9 11 2009
After the demise of funk revival pioneer label Desco, founders Philip Lehman and Gabe Roth parted ways. While Roth started Daptone Records, featuring a cleaner soulful sound, Lehman created Soul Fire Records to feature a dirtier raw funk sound. Soul Fire has reissued quality rare funk records and also produced modern funk artists recorded in that old authentic way. Unfortunately, the record label ceased its activities near the end of 2003. Graze in the trash with these heavy grooves from the label.Soul Fire delivers another collection featuring both sides of some of their lo-fi and funky 7-inch singles from the recent past. And while the bands here don’t breathe the same rarefied air the JB’s, P-Funk, and the Meters do, their tasty-enough beats and arrangements should still keep the crate-digging elite happy. With the nascent funk of James Brown’s late ‘60s material heavily in mind, both the Detroit Sex Machines and Lee Fields & the Explorers stretch out the blueprint with some natty guitar and horn work of their own. Working the Godfather’s staple sound to similar effect, the Whitfield Brothers evoke the summery bongo psychedelics of early Funkadelic, while the Sugarman Three opt for a few shots of soul-jazz boogaloo. There’s even some Afro-beat flavors, as Bama & the Family kick off the album with two flute-driven, Fela-inspired party jams – maybe not a document for the funk ages, but a late-nite groove treat for vinyl geeks all the same.
