Miami Vice


I made this beat for a mix tape that I was making to be played over this crusty boom box that i found on the side of the road. I was making the tape for a 4th of July BBQ that some friends and I were having at Alberta park. As I was making the mix tape i got inspired by how crunchy and dirty the boombox speakers sounded.. so I hooked up my sampler and spat this beat out onto the tape. The beat sort of wrote itself, it was a really hot day and all I wanted to hear was some dirty heavy tropical air coming through the speakers...



At the time I was totally hooked on the original Miami Vice TV series, I would watch like four or five episodes a day! (Luckily a homie lent me the entire first two seasons on DVD.)



The name came natural with the beat, the boombox and the heat of the day...
