EshBeats…We Need More Crates…
About EshBeats and We Need More Crates Radio
We Need More Crates Radio is something I started as an outlet/reason for me to excuse my addiction, buying records. The name pays homage to the kings of the crates and the beats, D.I.T.C. Shows may vary in themes but will mainly be a mix of hiphop, soul, reggae, jazz a little funk and some punk.
My love for records started sometime around 96 when I did my co-op at Downtown Records(RIP) in Ottawa. Around 99 I moved to Toronto with my MPC and records. As a producer, under the name ESHBEATS I’ve worked with some of Toronto’s best Mc’s and Dj’s. In 2001 joined a ten man collective called CAMP X. Today the love for digging/finding a record is still what bring me to records stores weekly. So my 20 years and counting of record collecting is what this radio shows is going to be about, sharing my favorites.
Thanks for listening
