Pete Rock - "Return of the SP1200" (Full Album Stream | 2019) - YouTube
Pete Rock is widely recognized as one of the greatest Hip-Hop producers of all time. His name is often included in the pantheon of the greatest, alongside DJ Premier, RZA & J Dilla. 2019 sees the launch of Pete Rock’s own imprint, Tru Soul Records. And being a lover of all things vinyl, he’s decided that the label’s inaugural release has to be for Record Store Day.
Rock’s production forte is the melding of Jazz with early 90s East-Coast boom-bap, as demonstrated though his work with partner in rhyme CL Smooth. But there was a time before Pete met CL, a time before the world came to know Pete Rock & CL Smooth, a time when Pete was a 19 year old in his basement in Mount Vernon, NY making beats with his SP-1200. These are those beats. Released for the first time ever on Return Of The SP-1200.
