As 2017 drew to a close, hip hop producer Frost Gamble, originally from NY State but currently based in Winnipeg Canada, chopped it up with New York online publication ‘Artistically Trustworthy’.

It was the culmination of what had been an extremely busy year for the beatsmith which included the album releases “Black Beach” with Detroit rapper ZotheJerk, “Respect Is Earned Not Given” with eastcoast rapper Tone Chop and a further EP “Rare Fabric”, his collabortion with Tragedy Khadafi.

2018 looks set to be just as productive if not even more so with multiple projects in the pipeline including work with Horseshoe Gang, a new solo album “I Missed My Bus” featuring a host of luminaries such as Conway the Machine, Rah Digga, Skyzoo, Ruste Juxx, KXNG Crooked, Planet Asia, Ras Kass and many more, the ongoing development of his “Nostalgia Clic” group project with Zo, Chop & Canadian upcomer White Rhino and further follow up albums to last year’s releases.

He discussed all of this, his original introduction to hip hop via breakdancing and his transition to working behind the boards in the new interview feature just published which can be read in full HERE

The releases are available to stream on Spotify at the following links

Having already released a co:production with European affiliates SWC last year called “Swiss Banks”, his new movie “Six2Six” co:starring Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee was selected by Ralph McDaniels for a special screening at next month’s Hip Hop Film Festival in New York.

Finally, as co:owner of Six2Six Records and the new sub division Six2Six Films, he discusses his vision for the label’s future and further expansion. Read the full feature HERE

The album is available to buy as a digital download direct from Six2Six Records HERE. As mentioned earlier, Fatbeats are currently distributing the physical formats of vinyl and CD to specialist stores around the world.

Last week they released their third single from the album. “Reign Storms” was written in the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray at the hands of Baltimore Police and the riots which ensued, and of course its release is all the more poignant due to well documented recent events in Minnesota, Dallas and Louisiana

Look out for the third and final episode of the group’s live freestyle video series “Tre Volte” launching shortly, and meantime connect with them on social media via Facebook (Group & Label) & Twitter (Group & Label)
