In 2017 Noiseman completed the design for the B Flatt B2B Tee Shirt. It’s an OBEY inspired design, reflecting the propaganda put forth by the B Flatt project. In 2018 we contracted BG Concepts to print the tee shirt. Printed on quality Alstyle Apparel (AAA) black cotton blanks. They do screen printing for brands like CuKui and Analog Tattoo. We recently completed a photo shoot using models, from Marketing Kings out of Oakland. Everybody loves the shirt, everybody wants one. We really appreciate all the fantastic support!

About The B2B Project: B Flatt “Back To Basics” is a vintage hip hop EP, originally released on Cassette and CD in 1996. May 2016 brought about the 20 year anniversary for the project. The B2B prize giveaway was a worldwide success, continuing to garner international CD sales. Delivering 42 minutes of hip hop music, it was digitally re-mastered, and is currently available in limited edition, on CD and USB Flash Drive. Fans around the world, have requested the album be released on vinyl. The album will again be re-mastered in 2018, with a new analog process Noiseman has perfected in the lab.

The B Flatt “Back To Basics” EP was an independent release from the Big Noise camp, defining their aspiration to deliver organic hip hop music, embodying soul and authenticity. It was a call to the community to stay balanced, as commercial radio began to misrepresent hip hop culture. Earning interviews and radio play from local collage stations, rocking venues with names like Rasco, from Cali Agents, B-Flatt and Tyranny brought you that authentic hip hop flavor.

Using the newly acquired Digital Distribution services, via Big Noise Radio, B Flatt Back to Basics is now available on over 150 digital platforms including; iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Spotify, Tidal, and Deezer… just to name a few. Using some of our new Big Noise Radio distribution features, you can now; listen, save, and follow B Flatt Back to Basics on Spotify or Apple Music. We really appreciate the support!

In 1995 the project was produced by Noiseman on an Akai S1100 and sequenced in Cu-Base. Vocals were recorded on a Tascam MS16 1″ tape, then mixed on a Soundcraft 24 track board. This was the first authentic hip hop album produced by Noiseman, after releasing a Break-Beat album via Upstairs Records, in 1994. Peanut Butter Wolfe, founder of Stones Throw Records, was a label-mate at the time. B2B has unexpectedly become a hip hop collectible. We sincerely appreciate everyone who has supported the project!
