The month of October brought us a new champion to the producer arena by the name of MiniProducer. Only the second female to wear the crown in almost two years of the ongoing contest. Jasmine aka MiniProducer is originally from Kennesaw, GA and claims it! She visited Patchwerk Recording Studios to conduct her Spotlight Interview with our new personality on our IdOMUSIC TV channel Porchia Marie. 

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. 

Last night show had a wide range of artist and producers submit singles with a lot of opportunity to be quality records.  We have compiled all tracks reviewed and can be found below for your listening pleasure. The goal again with Cookies and Lemonade is to review your music and share with the Patchwerkstudio & IdOMUSIC audience who seek to hear something new. Who knows what may happen or what could come from simply pressing play on the track.

August is a month for planning and executing the blueprint for the Fall. We are entering the last quarter of the year and as we start to take tally of our wins and losses there is an important question to answer: "What is next for me?"

Jay-Z Releases BAM BAM Sister Nancy and Damian *Junior Gong* Marley take Jay-Z back to Jam down in the feature video from his critically acclaimed project 4:44. The single has gained momentum since the album launched on TIDAL and includes vocals from Bob Marley's youngest son Junior Gong alongside popular female emcee Sister Nancy. The track is a remake from Sista Nancy's classic anthem Bam Bam, that in recent years has been sampled in several projects including Kanye's song "Famous" featuring Rihanna & Swiss Beats.

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.

It's no secret that on a monthly basis the Patchwerkstudio Marketing team curates three monthly events to assist the music community in building quality networking relationships and opportunity to showcase their skills to a wider audience. The new digital A&R platform Ignite Urban has come along with Red Stripe to find the new big superstar artist! Will you take advantage of this opportunity?

Coming off the early release of singles “Bounce Back,” “Moves,” and “Halfway Off the Balcony,” rapper Big Sean delivers in his fourth studio album I Decided.

I Decided. is Big Sean’s love letter to himself featuring his past and present self on the cover. He decided that he is the best rapper and proves himself with his hard hitting verbiage. Big Sean has come a long way from Finally Famous. For this album he worked heavily with up and coming producer and keyboardist Amaire Johnson, which provides a consistency and fluidity with each track. You can hear the Kanye West influence in tracks “Bounce Back” and “Sunday Morning Jetpack.”

The final Tight 32 contest of 2016 ended with Preme Cordice besting several other emcees for the title. Do yourself a favor and check out his winning verse if you need to understand.  Production provided by PWR Beatz representative Kangaroo809, listen to Preme discuss the origins of his name and some of his influences growing up. We touch on his existing projects and The Employee Of The Month concept to describe his sound. Find out exactly what this means and why after entering previous contest he took a chance on entering That Tight Thirty Two On Thurdayz competition.

As the 2016 year comes to an end, a new legion of artist are pushing to the front with singles and EPs that seem promising going into the new year. With legend after legend being taken away, we must give attention to the new voices of the generation. The way music is consumed today it is easy to miss all the amazing talent actively werking. Lucky you have programs like Cookies and Lemonade which keep you updated on the new records coming out! I have compiled a list of 10 artist you should put an asterisk beside for 2017.
