Altered Tapes - The Breakdown (+ Instrumental)

by Altered Tapes



West Coast vs Memphis

And now for our next trick.... we dipped into the Stax catalog for a Memphis Funk-flavored remix of one our favorite West Coast Gangster Rap tracks. A horn-heavy affair with a big drum break and bassline. The perfect soundtrack for winding down your Summer!

This song will support the Chicago West Community Music Center whose mission is "to harness the creative potential of individuals through education and to inspire artistic and cultural expression in such a way that helps foster positive relationships across neighborhood lines." We encourage you to visit their site to learn more about how the Center uses Music to inspire Chicago Youth in under-served neighborhoods.

How it will work: The 1st week of this song's release, when purchasing via Bandcamp, if you *pay more* that money will be considered your donation. If you only pay the base rate, we will contribute 50% of your purchase to CWCMC. If you'd like to give more than what this system allows or want to support the Center directly, go to !!

Thanks for listening and for supporting,
