I recently took part in the 2011 iStandardProducers beat battle here in Chicago. I’ll never forget the night, it was crazy. I went last year to check out the show when Bliz Beats won. I knew I was going to enter the next one. People came out through the rain to pack the house, and I met a lot of the producers I was competing against. We are all on a similar path so even though we are competing, there is still a sense of community between all the producers.
I wasn’t really nervous when I finally went on stage, even though it was my first beat battle. I’m confident in my sounds and just wanted to show everyone the variety of genres I can move the crowd with. The elimination was the insane part. To have the top three separated by one point just shows how much talent Chicago and iStandard has.
The prizes for winning varied from musical goodies to a few interviews and entrance into the national Battle of the Beats in New York. The first interview is on the iStandard website already – sendspace.
There is an official video on the way but below is some footage from the event from a camera phone lol. Read more

During my time at SIU I met a lot of talented people who leave no doubt in my mind that they are the best of the best at what they do. Adam Milton is one of those people. I worked with him in a few of our Audio Production classes on music projects and recording sessions. We came up with some great stuff including our final project (the beat “Go That Far” in the music player on the right). He played a nasty bass line and even did his best bass vocal (a la Nate Dogg) on the song.
Musical talent aside, and he has a lot of it, Adam is the sickest
photographer artist I know. His work is more than just photographs as you will soon see. Depending on the project, he blends his talent with the camera with his skills in post-production (or whatever photographers call it) and graphic design.
I wanted to post the link up to the collaboration between Math Hoffa and Iron Solomon that I produced. The two rappers are legendary battle rappers, and you can find plenty of youtube video of them battling each other. Links below. Also featuring Sciryl Cooper on the hook.
WordP, one of my artists I produce for, is set to have a giant show this week in Minnesota. It’s been months in the making and its incredible how much support and anticipation there is leading up to it. Here’s the info from Facebook:
