Yesterday we completed That Tight Thirty Two On Thurzdayz Emcee and Producer competition to set off the third season! Some emcees delivered bars with ease while others took their time to get it right. We need your help deciding the victor. Think you can do that?

Starting a new series dedicated to the intricate lines delivered by iconic emcees. The first for this series is with Ras Kass. The owner of Patchwerk Recording Studios, Curtis Daniel III and friend to Ras created the concept. Throughout Ras’ career he has had a lot of people tell him how much they like his lyrics.

Which genres were most dominant in United States from 2017? Things aren't always as they appear to be. This fact of life is evident in the recent reveal by British music streaming service Mixcloud display of "most searched for" music genres in the US during 2017. The genres are broken down by individual state in a music map. More than ten different genres are mentioned. 

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?
