PRODUCED AND MIXED AT NASA LABS: I had the urge to hear this track again tonight that I Produced and Mixed at Nasa Labs. It’s a remix of “Slums” from The Reavers. Dates back to about 2007 ish. This particular track features Akir, Privledge, Golden Child, Billy Woods and Vordul Mega. It was on the “New York Times Mixtape” that came out right around when “Terror Firma” came out. Always really liked how it ended up and the fact that Vordul was on one of my beats. Only problem was I couldn’t find the CD and it essentially doesn’t exist online besides at my man Elmattic’s Tumblr and that was shown to me by my man Dali the Goat aka When Giants Meet. Thanks to both of those cats.
PRODUCED AT NASA LABS, Pump Up the Volume by billy woods feat. L’Wren. Happy to say I’m a part of one of the best albums of the year in the role of Producer. History Will Absolve Me is the album and you can get it here at their site, http://backwoodzstudioz.com/history-will-absolve-me-is-out-now or Itunes or anywhere else on the planet. The album has been covered by My Old Kentucky Blog, The Needle Drop and lots of other places you can find hip people. This was actually mixed and mastered by my man Willie Green. Features a chorus sung by L’Wren. Billy breaks down African life under tyrannical leaders. Doesn’t get much better then that.

MASTERED AT NASA LABS: Human Story by Hired Gun from the Hits & Pieces EP. I recently got the opportunity to mix and master a full EP from Hired Gun called the Hits & Pieces EP. It features 6 tracks. I’m always really happy when I can guide a projects sound from the mix to the mastering stage and am eager to share what I can do in such situations. On this particular mix I was able to do some cool stuff with automated panning and some distorted vocal effects to add contrast to the chorus vocal among other things. The album is full of treats, The Pressure is another of my favorites on here. Go and support Hired Gun at http://freshroots.bandcamp.com/
