Producers, Henny & Dow Jones, better known as, Tha Bizness, have been making a lot of noise recently – namely, for their production of Young Jeezy‘s smash hit, “My President (Is Black)“, and Young Money‘s debut single, “Every Girl“.
As producers whose work is quickly taking over your iPod’s storage space, I asked them to share some insight for Producers Week.
Welcome to Producers Week!
Producers Week is a one week themed “event” on MakingTheMogul.com that focuses on the producers.
Throughout the week, I will feature several hit producers and producer managers, offering insight into the business of music production.
Whether you’re just starting out and want to learn about how others started their careers, or you’ve been producing for a few years and feel like you still need further insight into the industry or a bigger opportunity – Producers Week is for you.
This is my first event of the kind on makingthemogul.com, so I welcome any and all comments/suggestions on how to make it better for the next time.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!
Now that Producers Week is completed, below is an index of all the features:
I’d like to announce that next week will be Producers Week, right here, on makingthemogul.com.
Producers Week will feature interviews and features with some high-profile producers and producer managers, as well as a report on this Saturday’s “So You Want To Be A Producer” webinar, presented by In The Know Seminars. (If you haven’t already registered for In The Know’s webinar, please do so by clicking here.)
As part of Producer’s Week, I would like to invite all upcoming music producers to post your questions for hit producers, Midi Mafia.
Whether you want to ask about getting into the game, selling beats, or plug-in selections, this is your opportunity to get insight and advice from Billboard charting producers.
Please leave your questions in the comments section below.
The deadline for questions is Saturday, March 14th, at 6:00pm EST.
Music production can be incredibly challenging to get into; especially when technology has made it possible for nearly anybody to have a fair shot at it. But whether you’re learning to produce in a music school or learning on your own, nothing can replace real, live examples of music you listen to every single day.
Earlier last week, I met with producers Dow Jones & Henny of Tha Bizness. During our conversation, we began discussing blogging, social media and different ways of using them effectively to not only connect with an audience, but also to educate others making their way up.
Seeing that Tha Bizness have their own blog, I suggested making a video walkthrough of some of the hits they’ve been creating.
Being the forward thinking guys they are, they were open to the idea.
Young Money has been around for a few years now (as a group & label), and there have been a few changes in its roster, however 2009 is the year we will finally see the first full-length Young Money album.
