  • Streaming + Download




Dead Noise & WD4D join forces for their debut instrumental release, the After School EP1. The name derived from weekly meetings which they jokingly dubbed "After School Club". An opportunity for the two beat makers (and others) to exchange techniques & collaborate on new music.

Both artists have production credits for a handful of hip hop releases. Dead Noise contributed beats to Khingz' "From Slaveships to Spaceships" (Fresh Chopped Beats / MADK) & Kail's "True Hollywood Squares" (NinjaTune / Big Dada) albums. WD4D's full length effort in 2005, "Some Assembly Required" featured mc's Awol One & Exist (Shapeshifters) amongst the variety of vocal talents. Some signature instrumental tracks were featured here as well.

This new release is the progression of sounds you may have heard from these two in the past. Electronic influences becoming more apparent & mc guest spots no longer present. These new tracks stand on their own as spaced out, futuristic odes to the hip hop these two producers were raised on. Dj friendly & ready to find their way into your playlist, this is music for those in the know / now!

A collection of tracks that should definitely appeal to fans of Daedelus, Madlib, Prefuse 73, Nosaj Thing, SA-RA, & Glitch Mob amongst others.


released November 10, 2009

Tracks 1, 2, & 3 produced by Dead Noise. Tracks 4, 5, & 6 produced by WD4D.
