SESSION NOTES: OCTOBER 2013
The opening of our brand new Studio B got off on the right foot with 2 powerhouse sessions back to back. Lex Luger kicked things off with a hard hitting production session, followed by Epic Records booking a Future session with Atlanta legends Organized Noize. Rico Wade, Ray Murray, and Sleep Brown all attended to reproduce a sampled track for a song that features none other than Andre 3000 himself on both the hook and a verse! This one’s sure to make the album; session engineered by Steve Fisher.
Rocko spent a day in Studio A working on a few new songs with Steve Fisher engineering.
Producer Drumma Boy stopped through Studio A 3 times this month: once with Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul, Lil’ Whyte, and Jelly Roll; once with a new Slip’N’Slide Records artist; and again for a filming session for a new TV show called Sisterhood of Hip Hop on Oxygen Network. The show’s stars Diamond, Siya, Bia, Brianna Perry, Nyemiah Supreme and guest Da Brat were in the building, along with the production crew from 51 Minds.
