Temporarily back in the “Z” or Zaragosa and definitely in the right element…the “studio.”
We met a really good guy named Menik while on tour who was a friend of the promoter. He was a rapper, producer and DJ along with a couple of other hats like airport baggage handler, handyman, engineer, and entrepreneur. It was a gorgeous day out on our way to Barcelona, but before we headed out, he decided to take us to see his studio that he pretty much built by himself. He had some of the most creative studio solutions I’d ever scene. It was completely decked out with leather sofas, gorgeous wood floors, cutting edge technology, and there was a story behind every little thing in the studio. The doors of the studio both the control console and the recording booth were custom, with the old school style “industrial” freezer closure handles. These doors were as thick as submarine capsule doors.
Apparently Menik was a young yet very accomplished individual. He gave me a Cd of beats to check out which I still haven’t had the chance to check out yet and he gave Tone a “Beat Break” vinyl that he created himself. I was very impressed with this dudes work ethic and knowledge of music, especially American music. OOhh!!! He also runs his own record label as well, and his artist is pretty dope too!
Hip Hop is MASSIVE!!! Cheers to Graff Writers Worldwide.
