Kassa Overall Flips Norwegian-produced Katy Perry, Rihanna, Tinie Tempah, Wiz Khalifa & J.Lo "Donuts" for Stargate Mixtape (Greedhead)

Let's face it... It's almost 2012 and by now, most of us have heard of Stargate, weather we're aware of it or not. Since their 1997 inception, the Norwegian production team, consisting of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, has managed to fine-tune a number of Grammy-winning hit for artists like: Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, and Marina & The Diamonds. I have to admit, I'm a [casual] fan of many of their radio singles - Not even knowing who was behind the creation of these lush, layered tracks. One could even go as far as to say that Stargate was [partially] responsible for honing the genre-bending sounds of Popular albums: Rated R-Loud, Rolling Papers, and Teenage Dream.

Kassa Overall, it seems, is a fan of Hermansen & Eriksen's varied array of works, as well. For all intensive purposes, the Harlem-based drummer/rapper-producer's latest aptly-titled mixtape is based around nothing but Stargate productions. Over the course of the 13-track journey, Kassa Overall & Friends #KILL the backing music of tracks including: "Till I'm Gone," "Lose Control," "Black & Yellow," and "I'm Into You, "Take a Bow" (2008). Stay tuned, as Kassa's next projects in line will be titled "Coffee and Cigarettes" (solo CD) and "KASS & KOOL," a collaborative mixtape with Kool A.D. of Das Racist... Expect more info on those to come shortly. For now though, head over to KASSAOVERALL.COM to download a FREE copy of Stargate Mixtape.
