New QM! Always the innovator, QM is releasing the worlds first digital Cassingle. Closing Time, produced by DJ Bad DJ, is a reminiscing tune to raise a glass to whether it’s closing time or high noon. On Just Another Day, QM get’s his song on over a classic Jay Dilla Beat… what’s not to like?! To close it out (zing!), QM & Richie Cunning team up with Dregs1 from San Francisco’s Gas Mask Colony for another West Coast anthem. Alcoholiday was previously featured on Thizzler On The Roof’s compilation “Under The Bay: Season One“. (no relation)
“This is a remix/mash up I put together of the homey Alexander Spits’ new single Hella using a sample from the new Best Coast Record “Crazy For You”. I think it came together pretty well. Pick up a copy of the Beat Coast Record today, and Alexander Spits’ new project “Until Next Summer” when it comes out August 10th via The Hundreds. Both these fools are super dope.” – Al Lover, Fist Fam, Reflective Flesh Records Alexander Spit X Best Coast “Hella” Al Lover Remix by Al Lover Click here to download “Hella” Al Lover remix

“So here’s the project I put out a couple months ago in a limited batch of 100 with the zine. I’m about out of the hard copies and don’t plan on printing up anymore anytime soon. If you got a copy you’s a lucky fool, if not here’s the project for free download. Crunchy weirdo beats with hella much tambourine. Hope you enjoy.” – Al Lover Click here to download the album free.

The mixtape has arrived! After a few hurdles, mostly adding new songs, then us going on tour. The “Whatever You’re On I’ll Take 2″ mixtape has been complied, checked and double checked for quality, normalized, equalized, quantified, pasteurized and packaged for your listening pleasure. Proe delivers in full force with this mixtape packed with all the rapper talk and witty wit you want in a mixtape. Flexing his versatility and strong hold on the art, Proe makes it painfully clear that he is ready to go on any beat at any time.
Proe is coming out of a 5 year hiatus from album work with his new project produced by DJ MF Shalem. His previous albums, Tags on The Wall, and Perfect, were very well received when they introduced Proe to the world in the early 2000s. Now, with plenty more experience under his belt and a new album on the way, Proe is back with the new mixtape on the “rappity rap punchline side of things” as well as his new album which promises to be his most outgoing and unique album yet. Keep your ears tuned to RoutineFly.com for all the updates and enjoy some new rhymes by Rec-League‘s own Proe.
The Mayor of Gurp City wrote a great post about the history and significance of this here tape on www.gurpcity.net. Ill just say it is highly entertaining, classic San Francisco, and a vital link to the origins of one of our true hometown heroes, Z-Man. Download it here.

Proe is a name you may or may not be familiar with, depending on how long you’ve been listening to the Rec-League‘s music. Proe‘s last album “Perfect” came out in 2005 and received high marks accross the board. It even earned him an interview on the suicide girls site, as well as a fistfull of praise from many online critics… More recently, Proe contributed his song“Kop Cilla”, to the Rec-League“Season Two” album, released in dec 2009.
After a lengthy hiatus Proe is back making more music than ever. After recording and scrapping an entire album he made with DJ MF Shalem and starting all over, Proe is ready to make a splash once again with multiple projects nearing completion.
His “Whatever You’re On I’ll Take 2″ mixtape is part exercise, part flexing and all fire. Proe‘s signature style and supreme confidence come through like it never left on this newest release.
The first song from the project is “Famous” and is a light-hearted and honest take on some musician’s instant success. followed by “Not A Battle Rap” which is just that, Proe going in with no other goal other than murdering the beat. In Proe’s own words
“This mixtape is fun, this is me on my rap shit, honestly it couldn’t be more different than the music I’m making with shalem…”
Proe‘s versatility has always been one of his many strong points, and even on his “rap shit” Proe is able to display his humorous take on music, and maintain his outrageous lyrical ability at the same time.
“This is a project I threw together over the last few weeks. Woodsist is a great label out of Brooklyn, NY that is really doing some interesting stuff right now. Everything they put out is worth a listen, if not really good. I feel like this is the kind of stuff Hip-Hop producers will be looking to sample 20 years from now. Anyhow, I like the music and decided to remix some of the best tracks from a few of the releases on the label. Super low-fi, off-kilter, distortion heavy, weirdo shit. This is definitely an experimental approach to beat making for me.
