The Scripture Mix-Tape is was born out of Ephesians Six Ten Productions, an audio production company that is most known for providing audio production solutions, like radio commercials, voice imaging and audio for video production. After years of being on the pioneering end of Holy Hip Hop and several years in radio production and broadcasting. A calling to combine devotion resources with urban music in a presentation that mirrors DJ style mix-tapes gave way to the mission of Scripture Mix-Tape. What started with distributing CD samples at Christian Hip Hop conventions, youth events and CD subscription based Christian Hip Hop mix clubs lead to a web site bearing the ScriptureMixTape brand.
The creator and visionary of Scripture Mix-Tape DJ E.S.T., was honored by the Houston Holy Hip-Hop Achievement Awards in 2002, for his pioneering contributions to gospel rap in the late 80's and early 90’s, then again in 2008 by the All Eyes on Me Achievement Awards. It was during this season that a desire to pioneer a new effort in Holy Hip Hop was born. This effort would involve reaching beyond the evangelistic efforts commonly associated with Holy Hip Hop to provide resources that aid in discipleship, edification, and spiritual growth. Strides to fulfill this desire were taken with the completion of "The Six Beats of Ephesians" the first volume in a series of projects that combine narrated scripture and urban/hip hop music with a flashy presentation that is reminiscent of an evening radio mix show.
“The Six Beats of Ephesians” and subsequent projects like it, is to take full advantage of the unique power of music to provide resources that can be used by Pastors and Youth Leaders to teach, instruct and spawn the spiritual growth of Christian believers. Additional efforts include ring-tones, social media and more digital downloads.
With "4 Tracks of Philippians" the long awaited follow up project to “The Six Beats of Ephesians”, once again narrated scripture meets a canvas of uniquely blended urban music (hip hop, soul, funk, electronica, chill out and more) for an animated presentation of Bible verses like never before. With the flair of a DJ mix-tape and theatrical production the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippian Church unfolds along with narrations for Matthew, Luke, and the Psalms. It the crossroad where narrated scripture meets mix-tape!
