Dj DBT & Ment XXL - Footprints vol.11: Beatsoul

Beatsoul” is the dialogue of two musical instruments which understand each other very well: the gramophone and the MPC beat-machine. The majority of this dialogue is well-prepared and thought out but, as every conversation, at times improvised.

This unique soul selection of well-known, as well as less familiar songs is a tribute to their authors. It is also a return to the best times in music’s history – the 70’s, when the words “rhythm and blues” carried a sincere meaning and inimitable vibe.

Through several recent years played at tens of parties in Lublin and many other cities (Warsaw, Lodz, Szczecin, Sopot…). He is both – a funk-bomb and a master of chillout. His sets are always a unique selection. A keen collector of wax albums.

Ment XXL
He is one of few Polish beat-makers who play live using the MPC 2000XL beat-machine. He produced the Rasmentalism album “Dobra Muzyka, Ładne Życie (Good Music, Pretty Life)”, which has won him a lot of fans. He is often placed among top Polish hip-hop producers.

At present Dj DBT and Ment XXL are working on a new album called W.E.N.A and Rasmentalism Grają Duże Rzeczy.
