In our 1st episode of 2017, we kick things off RIGHT with very special new additions to the show! Perfection is her production name, and she is an audio engineer & music producer. She also currently manages one of the premier music studios in NYC, Engine Room. She's met and collaborated with many people in the industry, and her perspective is one we should all look forward to. Glam is a music producer, rapper & singer. She hails from the BAY area, but currently resides in NYC. She's actually one of my favorite artists. And of course you already know my guy Atlas the plug. In this episode we talk about !llmind losing his virginity, smoking pot with your parents, staying away from "struggle energy" when networking with people, Glam's mom being a legendary rapper from the Bay and how that molded her into becoming the amazing artist that she is. Another insightful show! Oh, and of course our "Blap or Crap" segment was LIT. Enjoy!
This week, Kosine of the incredible production team "Da Internz" called in to chat with us about a slew of things! We ran through how certain hit records came about, like Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda", and the story of how Big Sean had an idea for a song, and told them he wanted to create a beat around a hook saying "A$$ A$$ A$$ A$$" on repeat (true story!). We also touch on the amazing things Kosine is doing for our community, including his Marcos Palacios foundation, giving back to his hometown Chicago roots & so much more.
What an episode. The homie Cardiak Flatline came through and dropped MEGA JEWELS. We spoke about his experience with being consistent in getting placements with Drake, J Cole, his first big record START IT UP (Kanye, Lloyd Banks, Swizz, Ryan Leslie) that literally "started" his career up, his beat battle beginnings, and how nervous he got when Dr. Dre made him change a snare drum a million times and just couldn't get it right. Such an epic show. Enjoy!
Another one for the books! We spoke to Frequency about what his experience was like producing "Monster" for Eminem & Rihanna, how that changed his life and what he had to do to get there. We dive into his underground hip hop roots, where he started (like the old production forums back in the day that !llmind started on as well) and why he transitioned from underground hip hop to top 40 pop production. Very inspiring stuff here. Run P kills his music set as always!
What an awesome episode! A lot of inspirational conversation here, speaking on "genius moments" while creating music, dealing with self doubt and overall concepts on how to get over the emotional stresses that come with being an aspiring producer or artist. Stoni makers her return and completely SLAYS. We also introduce a brand new character. Her name is "Lauren" and she is a spiritual being. We'll just leave it at that LOL. Enjoy!
Another one for the books! In this episode, we spoke to the amazing Supa Dups (producer for Drake "Controlla", Rihanna, Beenie Man & so many more) on his come up in Miami, staying humble, how he balances work and family life, his rise to making a name for himself to become a pioneer in his own right and so much more. His background is really interesting and inspiring. So many jewels in this episode as usual. Tune in!
Man, this was one of my favorite episodes! So many jewels from the homies in this one. From Focus' experience at Aftermath and working with some of the best, to WLPWR's humbleness & super diverse catalog. This was also one of the funniest episodes to date! Tune in for some really awesome music production tips, like balancing time with family, a day job, and much more.
In this exciting episode, we had the incredible Charlie Heat of GOOD Music. From touring with Madonna, to creating bangers with Kanye and DJ Carnage, we spoke about his beginnings and how he managed to reach this point in his career. So much great info!
One of our best shows yet, we spoke to Cardo Got Wings about his grind, what it was like coming up in Minnesota, why he DM'ed Drake and ended up hopping on a phone call with him to get a placement on "Views" and so much more. The information here is priceless.
!llmind, Stoni, Atlas, DJ Prince & DJ RunP talk music production, critique beats, play exclusive jams & more! We also have special guest Rook of the legendary J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Grammy winning production team behind Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Nas and many more) chatting about their brand new Kontakt Instrument "Sub Zero" & other amazing things they have in the works!
!llmind, Stoni, Atlas, DJ Prince & DJ RunP introduce the first show chatting about what it takes to become a successful music producer, why DJ RunP is so "swole" now and critiquing a beat with a 45 second intro that sounds like we landed on planet Mars. All while sipping a bit of Jameson on the rocks at 11:00 AM.
