Our favorite production duo from Portland, Cates&dpL are gearing up for their next single ‘351’ due out on June 30th. Back in April we conducted a remix contest via SOUNDCLOUD in which the winner would get his remix officially released with the single. Unfortunately, we ran in to a little problem, there were simply too many quality remixes submitted and we couldn’t just pick one. The end result is a 8 track release with 7 remix winners including Hanssen (Jacob London), Forest Avery (fellow Oregonian), Ezekiel Bickford, Oliver Maier, Pete Dooman, Rob Slac of Chillin Music & Earth Delivery. Just to give you a taste, stream the original production below and look out for the digital release later this month. Don’t forget to download the Cates&dpL ‘Live June Podcast’ after the jump including new productions from Audio Soul Project, Mike Monday and some handy original and remix work from the dynamic duo.

Soul Power
Not an album, not a mixtape , not an E.P.

Some words from Raashan Ahmad:

Thirteen original songs mostly recorded in early 2009. After touring the United States to promote my first solo album The Push, I discovered that I wanted to add more bangin’ songs to my live set. Soul Power is the result. When I I say “soul power”, I’m talking about about what gives my soul, my spirit power—which is music! This project was especially born out of all that I learned being on the road so I have to give thanks to the folks who have made me feel at home while away from home; who have blessed me with food, shelter, ciphers, laughter, conversation, money, memories, general nonsense, and love. Also mad thanks to the artists who blessed this project with their talent. Please support! Lastly check out all the projects coming from my Crown City Rockers crew! Our new album coming in the Fall 2009. Hit me up and let me know what you think.
Peace – Raashan
