Rob Bass NKA: onBEATS, produces a more evolved hip-hop music but has also introduced such future stars as Planet Asia, DJ Babu and Rhettmatic and the Subcontinents. In fact, the sparse relaxed beats of Fanatik provided the perfect backdrop where Planet Asia’s battle-tested flow would find its truest expression. The duo appeared together on Tripek Records' Rules of the Game compilation alongside veterans like the Living Legends and the Coup. Fanatik is also responsible for bringing the hip-hop talent of Persevere to light. This young artist’s three- song single had a somewhat raw flavor of Hiero’s Opio. The official website of Fanatik describes him as a beat maker, music producer and multimedia artist. And, in all these capacities, sometimes alone and sometimes in collaboration with another artist or group, he has created countless number of albums and tracks, many of which are groundbreaking in their appeal. For instance, in ‘Wild Stylus’ released in 1997 by newAndalus Records, Fanatik joined forces with two of the world famous Beat Junkies DJ Babu (Dilated Peoples) and DJ Rhettmatic (Visionaries) to present the known classic hip-hop song format with a new twist. His ‘Phanatikbeats’ was the first full length (2LP) record and the first instrumental record on Stonesthrow Record in 1996.
