The Thesis Brings a Beat Showcase to First Thursday

Vortex Music Magazine

The hardest working man in PDX hip-hop—alongside a whole host of local emcees and producers—is set make May 4 one banging beat showcase at Kelly's Olympian.

This Thursday, May 4 at Kelly's Olympian, we're bringing you a special producers-themed Thesis lineup headlined by Portland master Stewart Villain. Villain, or just Stew as he's affectionately called around town, is known by many as the hardest working man in Rose City hip-hop and was recently named as an in-house producer for EYRST.

In preparation for this month's show, I asked Stew for a list of his favorite beats that he's done and it acts as a great introduction to his catalog. Tune in, turn up!

Kung Foo Grip: "Growing Up In The Future" (feat. Kirk Huffman)


Eso.Xo.Supreme: "Dream"


Eli Sostre: "Passenger"


Donte Thomas: "Tell Ya" (feat. Farnell Newton)


Cassow: "Ble$$ed Up"


Also on deck will be Thesis favorites ePP and the pairing of Donte Thomas and Bocha, no doubt repping their latest EP release Garden Boys—listen below.

Don't miss this blazing beat showcase featuring producers and emcees Stewart Villain, Bravo Domo, Donte Thomas, Bocha, ePP and Verbz at Kelly's on Thursday, May 4.
