- Artifacts – Turn It Out (prod. by King I Divine)
Following up last week’s massively well-received release, The Quality Control x Unique Squared Official SXSW Mixtape has some more in store for all the Hip hop aficionados. When you get Hip hop’s last action hero, El Da Sensei to combine once again with his partner in crime, the syllable strangler Tame One – you get an atom bomb known as Artifacts. The Artifacts were one of the true highlights of The Official SXSW Showcase at this years’ South by Southwest Festival and are now one of the highlights of the mixtape as well with their song, ‘Turn It Out’. Tame and El both take well executed swings at a track provided by up-and-comer King I Divine. This beat thumps and muscles its way along, commanding attention and setting the stage for true legends to, well, turn it …

Quality Control and Unique Squared are back with another single off of the upcoming ‘Quality Control x Unique Squared Official SXSW Mixtape’. This mixtape was a culmination of 3 straight days of non-stop beat listening, rhyme writing, and recording on board a 45 foot tour bus which was converted into a state-of-the-art mobile recording studio and was a focal point for artists to convene as a creative outlet to record music in between their incessant schedule of performing from one venue to another.
The track, ‘All Alone’ which premiered exclusively on 2DopeBoyz, is by Detroit’s own up-and-coming producer Apollo Brown, and fellow Detroit stalwart Ro Spit. The song is a head nodder of a track with cuts and scratches provided by none other than Scribble Jam DJ Battle 3-peat champion, DJ Presyce and mixed by the Mobile Studio’s chief engineer, Fokis (Fokeezy). We …

- The Unique Squared Mobile Studio Team has been bustling with excitement over everything that has been happening since our launch. And today we get to share some of that excitement with you. Today we offer a sneak leak off of the Quality Control & Unique Squared Present The Official SXSW Mixtape.
Following the precedent set by the first Unique Squared Mixtape, Mobile Studio brainchild Amond ‘AJ’ Jackson, along with Program Director Soul Wallace were determined to set the bar once again. And judging by this first leak, they have.
The ATL beast 4-IZE links up with Brooklyn producer Von Pea from Tanya Morgan to bring us ‘People‘. This song also serves as the music to our SXSW recap video below. ‘People’ is the first leak that will be followed by, well, a lot more goodness.

Unique Squared, along with DJ Booth.net, 2DopeBoyz, and Last Rights, sponsored a great event at SXSW 2011 at the Dizzy Rooster called, ‘The Rising’. Heavy hitters like El Da Sensei, Big K.R.I.T., and Freeway made this a show to remember. Along with hot up-and-comers J. Nics and Skewby, plus dj sets from Meka as well as M-Phazes himself, the showcase did NOT disappoint.

With all of our gear packed up, screws and bolts tightened, and a full tank of gas (and some refilling along the way), the Unique Squared Mobile Studio team headed out to SXSW 2011 ready to have a blast. From official showcases to barbecues and non-stop recording sessions, the time we spent in Austin, TX for this years’ South By Southwest festivities were awesome.
We had everyone from Skewby to Skyzoo and J. Nics to Nick Javas come through and drop some gems for us. The days and nights proved to be long and fruitful as word started to spread about the ‘recording studio that’s a bus’.
With so many artists steadily hearing about the bus, we had to throw things into full gear and run a beat-listening, syllable-writing, rhyme-spitting factory. In the end, it did make for some great music and footage.
In between recordings sessions and dj sets, …
