Peter Jericho Single – “BODI” (Produced By Covelli)

Here’s a link to the single, “BODI”, I produced for Peter Jericho’s upcoming album “First Generation” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv29_X0XVNo

Peter Jericho is currently working on his new album “First Generation” where “Bodi” the new single debuts. The inspiration behind “Bodi” came out of an unexpected trip back to Cameroon in December 2012 after he had not been home for over 10 years. Not only was he reunited with his family and old friends but he found himself inspired by the music and immersed in the culture. Read more

Producer Cat – Frozen Yogurt

[soundcloud id=’18299319′]
This is the song that shows the truth about who produces the songs at Covelli Productions. He was tired of being a ghost producer. Keyboard cat wanted to get on the track but Producer cat cut him because he kept playing that lame loop over and over.

This is what happens when you have a day of free time…smh. Anyway, download on iTunes NOW! – http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/frozen-yogurt-feat-producer/id448343278 Song and Video produced by Brian Covelli.

More videos to be posted soon! (Probably not)

2011 Chicago Beat Battle Winner

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

A Day In The Life of Ken Lewis – Mixing Engineer

I decided to re-post a video posted on iStandardProducers.com about a day in the life of a mixing engineer a successful mixing engineer. One that put in “8 days a week” for almost 20 years.
