Attendees at the Skillz of the Trade Hip Hop Producer Seminar and Conference include hip hop and rap notables The Heatmakerz, Dame Grease, and Easy Mo Bee.

Skillz of the Trade is a hip hop production seminar that educates aspiring producers on the nuances of being a well polished producer within the genre of hip hop. Attendees are educated within a "hands-on" environment by actual industry producers who have worked with hip hop notables such as Wu-Tang, Roc-a-fella Records, Def Jam, Jive, Motown and Grammy award winning mastering engineer Don Grossinger.

This is your opportunity to learn and network with some of the best in the hip hop business. Some of the topics that will be addressed are music production, creative sampling techniques, the best equipment to use, where to get your sounds, creating a signature sound, sampling laws, music theory, how to get in the door, mixing, mastering and so much more.

Well Connected Management in conjunction with Black Collar Entertainment is excited to announce the marquee producers that will be contributing to the Skillz of the Trade Hip Hop Producer Seminar and Conference are Rsonist of the Heatmakerz, Dame Grease, and Easy Mo Bee.

As Brian Jay explains, "This is the only conference of its kind. It is a situation where aspiring producers and others can come in and learn from some of the industry’s best, how to produce polished hip hop music. It is very hands on and very elaborate. When people leave our conference they not only leave with the knowledge provided by RIAA gold and platinum plaque recipients and Grammy award winners, but they also leave with all the tools and sounds they need to produce mix and master, as well as, having the opportunity to be exposed to the actual decision makers within several major label A&R departments that they will be dealing with now and in the future. This means if there is something specific they need to hone in on to take their work to the next level, they are right there amongst the people that can help them accomplish that goal! If that isn’t enough you can check out some of the newest products on the market in the Exhibitor’s Hall and have your questions answered by product representatives and producers.”

Skillz of the Trade will also have Cadinze, author of the Hip Hop Producers Bible, Wonder Arillo, producer for T.I. Ludacris and Boyz N Da Hood, and Don Grossinger, the Grammy award winning engineer who as worked with Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, Tears For Fears, Sade, Tony Bennett, Metallica, Elvis Costello, The Kronos String Quartet, The Grateful Dead, Public Enemy, Mariah Carey, Lou Reed and Journey among others. Brian Jay says that there are several other surprises planned for attendees. “We have some really big name surprises and very nice giveaways, but I am not about to let the cat out of the bag on any of those exclusives.”
