About

Beats & Breakfast is a series from producer and musician LONEgevity (of Hinx Jones) and emcee and master-chef Skittz (of The Proforms and Breakdown Kings), presented by BDTB (bringingdowntheband.com). The two get together on multiple Sundays between the months of May and September each year for their series and invite colleagues and cameras. What does that mean? Well…

Every Sunday musicians are invited over (everyone brings items to contribute to the breakfast being made), the producers work on making the beat, the instrumentalists contribute and work with the producers, the emcees write raps, the singers sing, bridges and choruses are conceived together, and everyone eats well with a breakfast meal orchestrated by Skittz. It’s a true collaborative and live music-making experience. The song is conceived, written to, recorded, and wrapped up all in a few hours time. Oh, and it’s filmed and turned into episodes so that everybody can check out what’s going on at their convenience!

Season 1 was completed in 2011 and released in 2012. The first season featured Blake Allee, Tony Styxx, Scoot Dubbs, and Gritts as regulars. Additional artists were Grey Granite, Richard Cook, Id Obelus, Mr. Kinetik, Eratic, Joe Harvey, DJ Spoolz, and ACE ONE. We also had special guests Tiarress, Andrea, and Jordan.

Season 2 was completed in October 2013 and the first episode will debuted on March 18, 2014. The second season features ACE ONE and Gritts as regulars with special features from Pope Adrian Bless, Tyler Knapp, Grey Granite, WhoisLouis, ILL Brown (Chicago, IL), Black Eddie (Columbus, IN), R-Juna (Bloomington, IN), Theon Lee, Oreo Jones, Breakdown Kings, Jaecyn Bayne, Rusty Redenbacher, and Dominique Larue (Columbus, OH). Video camera and director work by TR (Thomas Roberts) and Kato.
