Whilst moving house in late 2012 Stateovmind found a collection of unmarked discs buried deep inside a cardboard removalist box. On these discs were four ProTools sessions filled with rough unfinished songs and concepts, all of which were recorded over M-Phazes beats that State had originally acquired in 2007. Stateovmind had long thought that these discs, beat stems and recorded demos were lost forever until this rediscovery. The beats hidden on these discs carried the distinct drums and vintage sound of M-Phazes, and so State decided that they were too good to be left unused and that they should be heard.
In mid 2013, Stateovmind then re-wrote and in some instances re-recorded the four once forgotten songs to update them and bring them to life. 5 years after their original conception, the four tracks now carry new meaning and a fresh reinvigorated sound.
State has finally shown these beats justice as they are now showcased on his latest EP 'Lost and Found’.
Long thought to be lost forever they have now been found...
