Recording, Mixing, Mastering, and Monetization w/ Patchwerk Staff
The legendary Patchwerk staff gathered at Patchwerk Recording Studios to discuss Recording, Mixing, Mastering, and Monetizing services offered at the studio. These are all essential when it comes to making a hit record. The werkshop was separated into three different sections so that the audience was able to digest each service and understand the importance of the process for their record.
Knowing how to properly promote and market your music to media is essential in the music business. We sat down with journalist, radio personality, and senior editor at HipHopWired Maurice Garland on ways to effectively market your music to media outlets. Garland got his start as a journalist while attending school at Fort Valley State University where he ran the college radio station and contributed writing to the school newspaper. His hard work and networking led him to be introduced to the founder of Rolling Out Magazine, Munson Steed where his career began to flourish.
Rico Brooks, manager for super producers Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin stopped by Patchwerk Recording Studios to drop some knowledge on being a manager in the music industry.

It appears Apple is implementing it's will and locking down a technology that would allow the company to censor audio streams during playback. The patent application, available on patent database Justia and first reported by Business Insider, describes ways of removing "unwanted audio" within streams.
Although my month long free trial of Tidal just ended, I'm committed to maintaining a subscription to the premium music streaming service headed by industry favorites including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Madonna and Kanye West. I will be the first to admit, I was very hesitant to literally buying into a streaming service knowing that there is so much music that's legally available online for free. Ultimately, it took the respect and love I have for the consistent genius artistry of Kanye West to give the highly publicized platform a shot once he announced that his new album, The Life of Pablo, would only be released via Tidal. Not only did TLOP live up to my expectations, I fell in love with all of the other great music I had been missing.
Being that it's been reported that Pablo's exclusive release helped double Tidal subscriptions, it's no surprise that right when the free trial period came to an end, Yeezy made multiple tweaks to his latest project including altered vocal arrangements on 'Famous', new vocals from Sia and Vic Mensa on 'Wolves', and a new track called 'Frank's Track' featuring Frank Ocean. Although other streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Rhapsody, and Google Play are all doing well, and perform in many areas better, Tidal continues to show promise as a work in progress with many powerful artists with ownership stakes. That makes room for a lot of new exclusive music and video releases, where loyal subscribers can get first dibs on spontaneous releases.
