Producer/rapper Beatking interview on the Producergrind Podcast. Beatking aka Club Godzilla stopped by to talk about his come up, his observations of the music industry & trends, why he brings cucumbers every time he goes to the club & more. We got him to talk a lot about his music producer career and how he was able to go viral and be succesful as a rapper to the point where he has never needed a placement with a big artist rapping over his beats. He talked about how he used social media (vine & facebook) to promote his music and gain fans little by little to the point of getting millions of views on his singles. One major piece of advice he gave to artists and producers is to go to college parties and listen and absorb the sound & energy. If you can take the elements of the music that people connect with and apply that to your music it can guide you into where your sound should be for commercial value. This also goes a long with the constantly changing "popular sound" which Beatking gave his insights and smart observations he has made about the shifts. Lots more gems in this one as always enjoy.

A video about Waves Audio plugins that TM88 would love to use. I cover three different types of plugins like Meta Filter (which works like Sugarbytes Effective), Renaissance Bass, and Infected Mushroom Pusher. All these plugins are perfect for trap based production (or any production). Great for controlling dynamics and creativity without being to difficult to use! All these work on Windows and MacOSX (VST, AAU, formats). All samples and drums come from our website.

In late May, Quality Control rapper Lil Baby entered the Billboard 200 at No. 3 with his debut studio album 'Harder Than Ever,' thanks in large part to the Drake-assisted single “Yes Indeed.” The Wheezy-produced track, which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, is Lil Baby’s most popular song to date with well over 100 million Spotify streams, and was recently certified platinum.
