You can download this piece for free on soundcloud.
I’ve been asked a lot in the past 3 years about the music that we use for QuakerSpeak episodes. Mostly when I need music for the project, I just search back through my archive and use a piece that I’ve never released. Sometimes I’ve composed an instrumental or two for the project. But I’ve never made the music publicly available on it’s own, until now.
Listen to all of the music from QuakerSpeak Season 1 & 2 below, and feel free to download the mp3’s. I’m composing music for Season 4 now, so keep an eye out for the next compilation!
Got to spend all day yesterday working on this piece. It was glorious. So happy with how it turned out. Inspired by dance & movement.

It’s been a rough week, everybody. I’m posting this track as an offering… hopefully by listening you find a fraction of the solace that I found in remixing it. It was an honor to have the opportunity. Also noteworthy in that it is my first ever remix.
In the year 2000, when I was first getting into underground hip hop, I came across this rapper from Minneapolis who blew my mind.
Edit 12.12: Eyedea was from St. Paul
Eyedea was a musical prodigy, beginning to tour at just 16 years old, and already starting to develop his signature style of fast paced delivery with mind-bending lyrics. He released his first work of genius at age 20.
My second attempt at covering one of my favorite indie hip hop artist. Slug retweeted this one himself!
Since finishing Clothe Yourself in Righteousness, I have been working on a few cover songs by my favorite indie hip hop artists. Here is the first one! Turn it up!
