There’s not a wealth of info available for The Beat Tape Project’s Wake Up: The Teddy Pendergrass Beat Tape. Or maybe there is and I’m just too preoccupied to go diggin’ for it. Those trivial matters aside, Wake Up’s a smooth listen as a couple of different producers and DJs take interpolations of the late great “Teddy Bear’s” tunes and rework them. Certain songs are polished while others are rough around the edges but all play well as a collective. After listening to it on endless loop, I’ve probably gotten more work done this week with Wake Up playing the background versus any of the other assorted shit mp3s I’ve picked up.
