Red Bull Music Academy wrote a descriptive article on the power of Patchwerk and their influence on the South. 

During the late 90's and early 2000's Patchwerk was the nucleus of Southern Hip-Hop, providing the DNA for Atlanta's music culture. The studio continues to create a reputation for producing the highest quality mixes and mastered singles throughout the South and to the world.
Their structure was built upon having that sound that made people come back for more. The ambiance, technology, and space made it a hotbed for Hip-Hop's hit records. The biggest collaborations happened because Patchwerk was a musical home for many. Producers, artists, A&R's and engineers agreed that Patchwerk helped establish the site for some of greatest compositions in their 22 year history.
The studio went above and beyond to cater to the needs of artists and set themselves apart by providing the optimal space for emerging and mainstream artists alike. The vision set by Bob Whitfield and Curtis Daniel back in California came into fruition once they set their mind to producing music for their friend Ras Kass, who ended up being the first artist signed to their record label. Later the label developed into a studio, opening its doors to a roster of talent such as Ludacris, Lil Jon, and Outkast.

The temperature is cooling down in Atlanta bringing a lot more people to the city, including artists from around the country out to perform. Musical events including One Music Fest, A3C, Music Midtown and more are all happening in Atlanta this year as fall rolls around.

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?"

Make an impression with the Spotlight Interview. Be the main act at our monthly showcase, step in front of the camera for a photo shoot, express your personality in a one-on-one interview, and include your latest release on our playlists with hundreds of subscribers.

Woke up to a text message from one of the alumni members of the Patchwerk Marketing team notifying me the VH1 show, SIGNED, finally set an air date. Patchwerk Recording Studios was home to the cast of Lenny Santiago, Rick Ross, and The Dream who are judges seeking the best unsigned talent in the country. These three veterans in the music game are bringing their creative genius and business skills together for the music competition reality series set to air Wednesday July 26th, 2017.

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. 

Grown man business is what we are experiencing entering the month of July. The month of independence must be recognized and acknowledged as purveyor of the hip hop culture Jay-Z has spoken. His first release in the last four years and came right on time.

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?

Happy Record Store Day! Itunes, CD's, Spotify, Tidal, Cassette tapes, and Vinyl are all apart of the ways we consume music in today's generation. With all these platforms out, one thing connecting them has remained constant throughout the time of its creation, Record Stores. Record stores have been around since the late 19th century, and since then they have continued to be a hub for all things music. From Country to Gospel, Record Stores got it all. No matter what year it is, Vinyl still hold a level of value that can't be defeated. A lot of people assume that artist don't put their music on Vinyl anymore; however, I'm pretty sure your favorite artist has released their project on a Vinyl as well. In my opinion, real music lovers should always hold physical copies of the albums they truly adore. Record Store day was created to pay homage to all the independently own records stores around the world. Since 2007, this day has served as a center of unity for artist, musicians, shops, and music enthusiast. With the headquaters being in the United States, since its creation, Record Store Day has spread as far as the UK. Stores create contest, special releases, and music events that promotes the holiday as a whole.
