12-14-2000: NEW SOULMAN "NEVA STOP DIGGIN'" CD FINALLY RELEASED!
Well, it's finally done and ready for mass consumption. The new Soulman "Neva Stop Diggin" CD is now available for whoever's interested. Nice stereo sound, recorded digitally (no tape hiss, so if you're into jackin' beats from CDs you'll be in sample heaven). Also nice professionally printed covers, no homemade cut out jobs on this one. Features a guest spot from my boy Soulson of The Nextmen- UK heads will know what I'm talking about.
$15 plus $3.20 postage in the US (for the rest of 2000- next year the priority rate goes up to $3.95). Contact The Soulman for orders outside the US and for all info on how to cop this joint. That's what's up!
Also free with purchase is the "2001 SPACED ODDITIES" bonus tape featuring some of The Soulman's rarer and stranger records. SUPPLIES ARE LIMITED on the freebie tapes, so act with swiftness or you lose like you got the ill street blues.

8-4-2000: NEW WEB HOST! A REAL SERVER!
Wow, this has been an exciting month for us! Larry at iScience.com Hooked Our Ass Up with a real server, so there's a lot of good that's gonna' come of that! For one thing, www.WorldOfBeats.com will ALWAYS be working, not like before when it was about 75% up... For another thing, Soulman's email will also be 100% reliable! What else? The site should now be LOTS FASTER, and we now have tons of space to really work on improving the site. Look for lots of Real Audio clips from Soulman's legendary Mixtapes coming soon, and a lot of general cleaning up of the site! I'll be converting the entire site to database-driven ASP and implementing some useful goodies, like a search engine. So, SUPREME THANKS go out to iScience.com for their generosity and support of the Soulman's World of Beats site!
BTW, iScience.com is a serious behind-the-scenes supporter of our beat-digging community. They provide the much needed affordable server space and full-featured NT hosting for PhatDrumLoops.com and SampleHead.com. And everyone's favorite rare vinyl site, JumpJump.com, is powered by iScience.com as well! Please drop Larry at iScience a line to say thanks!
