Utilizing a mixture of samples and original music, Numonics is known for his soul influenced approach to Hip Hop. The Florida-based producer was first spotted for his work with Monsters Ink on their Mick Boogie and Terry Urban assisted mixtape "Ink Made Me A Monster". To follow up this project, Numonics partnered with California based clothing brand IM KING and DJBOOTH.NET to release his first album "Being Cool Doesn't Pay The Bills". While working on this project, a new collaborative force was created. Los Angeles' Co$$ and Numonics created two tracks for said project and used that as the springboard to create "Revelations". This new project was done as a free download in partnership with, Crooks & Castles and PONY International. "Revelations" marked a transition for Numonics as his new focus will be creating collaborative projects with the most truly unique voices in hip hop.

Late Bloomers FREE DOWNLOAD beat tape

As you may or may not know, we are getting ready to release the debut EP from the LA based hip hop trio, Late Bloomers. The 6 track EP, titled Three Shades Brown, will be out on vinyl/digital late November, but in the mean time, the trio has put together, "Songs For Suns", a 26 track instrumental project which is now available for FREE download.

(Songs.For.Suns download link)

"Songs For Suns", is the work of Late Bloomers producers Ahh:Zel, and ReallyNathan, which contains old and new material, plus a few vocal tracks mixed in (an appearance from the Detroit artist, Real Reid). With so many beats that go unused, it seems selfish to just keep them stored in a hardrive/zip disk, so the two decided to share their creations with the masses.

Below is the promotional video of some audio/video snippets from "Songs For Suns".

We hope you enjoy the music!
