BIO Hailing from Portugal, Blastah Beatz grew up in the 80's listening to golden age hip hop, hence his musical boom-bap style was inspired by the genre. From mixing daring samples with heavy bass and hard drums, Blastah Beatz has become notable to work with notable American artists. His reputation has yielding him as one of the best foreign up-and-coming producers.
He has produced for Canibus, Busta Rhymes, Joe Budden, Papoose, Del the Funky Homosapien, Cappadonna, Murs, Tragedy Khadafi, J-Hood, Supastition, Pumpkinhead, and Aloe Black.
In March 2008, Blastah Beatz was handpicked amongst hundereds to be part of a select group of 10 producers taht took part in Money Management's One Stop Shop Beat Battle in Phoenix, Arizona.
G-Unit production mastermind Sha Money XL and Chamillionaire were part of the panel of judges at the beat battle and they were all very impressed by Blastah’s skills. “I'm feeling the samples, how he chops them up and does his thing with them. Plus, coming from where he coming from man, that long-ass flight, his hunger, I feel it all,” said Sha Money. DJ Kay Slay also co-signed Blastah on a Streetsweepers mixtape.
Blastah’s most recent accomplishment was having four of his beats making the cut on Joe Budden's highly-anticipated sophomore album Padded Room. “I met Blastah,(...) and it turns out that Blastah was an incredible musician. He just continued to give me beat, after beat, after beat, and they were all pretty crazy so he ended up on my album”, said Joe Budden.
But perhaps the greatest praise Blastah received came from Jay Williams of BeatDynasty.com. “This dude’s internet grind is SERIOUS!!! He might make you feel bad for living in the United States and not having as many credits. Blastah Beatz is on his way to the moon.(...) With firm roots in Hip Hop purity and a sound reminiscent of classic producers of the Golden Era, the Portugal resident is garnering a ton of attention”.
