Hello my name is Nerdy Frames and I'll be one of the blog contributors for Tiltmag.com
Let me give you a little history. I ran the infamous Nerdy Frames blog from 2007 which was based in NZ where I'm from. I did interviews with over 170 artists around the world including Larry Tee, Princess Superstar, DJ Hell and Dani Deahl just to name a few.
Recently we had to close our doors but I was open to working part time with other blogs which has lead me to Tiltmag and I'm honored to be apart of it due likely that I started my blog using this platform.
Now with that introduction out of the way, lets talk music!
With Halloween upon us, producers around the world are always doing remixes, special edits of ghoulish themes from the past (and I hope I don't inspire anyone to do a remix of Monster Mash).
For this Halloween I thought we can start off with this.

It's rare that we come across a rapper that steps to the plate and brings the next level. One that encompasses the flavor of the old school and an elevated rap style that shifts and molds to the beat. Rapper Sammattick The Rebel
does just that. He is fresh from the Westcoast. California to be exact and he just represents all these styles that we have been looking for. All while bringing a fun, party atmosphere with his latest music video for "Summertime." We are always looking for a party anthem and this one is a gem! Something that you would hear on a Soulection Show. Smooth old school
boom bap jams!
It just brings back memories of the Summers past and all the wild times. Nothing like a good tune that rolls the feelings of nostalgia over you. Man, are we missing the Summer pool parties already. Check out more from Sammatick below. "Ciggs and Vapors" is def one of our personal favs. Straight next level.
