Grammy Award Winner S1

I'm sure anybody who has managed to stumble on to this blog is fully aware of S1. Amazing person, mult-platinum/Grammy Award winning producer that has placed incredible music with the likes of Jay-z, Kanye West, Beyonce, Little Brother, and too many others to name in this blog entry. In this vid we are blessed to be able to see him showcase several pieces of music he is working on. S1 is no stranger to incorporating live instrumentation in his production. Most of us are familiar with his frequent co-producer Caleb who is a beast on keys, but this vid showcases S1 working with some dope guitarists and a violinist. Must see.

Jersey native Cardiak has been absolutely DESTROYING the charts for the last few years, whether you've noticed or not.  He's been landing placement after placement and deservedly so, this man has a work ethic that is hard to match.  His versatility allows him to appeal to almost all sub-genres of hip hop.  This particular vid showcases him creating a lush, elegant, yet aggressive piece of music that would go on to become "Rise" for the MMG squad.  This guy is going to be a legend...watch.

Bink + mp3000 = !!!!


The Legendary Binkdog at it again.  This time the VA legend gives us a long awaited glimpse into his creative process as he chops and programs a sample, keys a bassline in, and sequences an amazingly soulful slap.  Dope vid!
