We kicked off a new season of Cookies & Lemonade Online Music Review show in Studio 9000(A Room) to welcome our new host Jamear J! We reviewed a variety of music from artists who submitted their singles. From Country to R&B(yes it was that diverse!) and from singers to engineers, many viewers tuned in to see hopefuls get served the freshest Cookies & Lemonade.

The Plaque of the Month for July goes to the Brooklyn emcee Nas. Listed in many conversations as one of hip hop's greatest, Patchwerk Recording Studio's has the honor of saying we have werked on numerous projects including the July 15, 2008 release "Untitled." Amongst all the excitement of Jay Z releasing what some view as his most socially awoke album, you only need to look in your hip hop history books to realize Nasir Jones has tackled these issues for years.
The follow up to our Tight 32 Finale which took place back in January finally aired this past week on The Complex Network. The monthly contest united all the winners from 2016 and battled it out in Patchwerk Recording Studio's A Room called Studio 9000. Our Tight 32 engineer Latrez McClam loaded up each artist matched with producer to recite their 32 bars. Every artist was able to receive the tracks days in advance before the session so nothing but bars were being served.
On the daily I speak with several artist and musicians who say they are ready to elevate their career and be heard. There is no blueprint to the music business today but consistency is key. Creating a powerful network of individuals who are actually WERKING in the music industry can change everything. Every 1st Thursday of the month Patchwerk Recording Studios host an network and showcase event to assist the talent who understand this philosophy. We focus on four direct elements at all our events.

For the longest I always wanted to put the most valuable players detrimental to a record's succcess on the spot so all the music enthusiast could sit and watch them speak. Who are these individuals taking the title of mvp you say? Only the person who can bend and maneuver your vocals into a werk of art. Yes you already know how we spell this around The Patch! The engineers!
Our monthly workshops are geared for the artist and musicians to learn from an industry professional and this month is no different! After the music is created how do you generate a buzz about your project? Who is telling your story and who actually cares enough to give attention. The next weekend werkshop will cover the Role Of A Publicist with Tia Culver.
