Dj Pnutz - The Good Wife's Guide to Beatmaking

"The Good Wife's Guide to Beatmaking" is Dj Pnutz third full length instrumental hip-hop album and follow-up to last years "B-Girl Breaks" E.P. on Spring Strut Recordings. Along with 16 brand new tracks this release comes with 14 bonus "spitstrumentals" for emcees and DJs, including exclusive instrumental versions of songs from 2015 San Diego Music Award winning album "Treel Tales of Number Running". From Ninja Tune/Mowax inspired tracks like "Hatbox Ghost", big beat basslines with "Boogie Down Daygo", and classic boom-bap beats like "May Me May We", this album features diverse production styles that will entertain any audience. At times taking a satirical look at gender roles and stereotypes in hip-hop, Pnutz offers a fresh perspective on an often male dominated scene.

 "The Good Wife's Guide to Beatmaking" blends comedic social commentary with hard hitting hip-hop beats that defy today's definition of what music can be.
On her mother's birthday of 2012 a long time dream was released when DJ Pnutz released her first album and limited edition vinyl entitled "Rackmount". Since that time she has released numerous solo and joint projects including the top charting digital release "B-Girl Breaks" on Springstrut Recordings and "Treel Tales of Number Running" with J. Treel and 1019 of Parker and the Numberman which won a San Diego Music Award for Best Hip Hop album of 2015
