[Producer Spotlight] Cam of J.U.S.T.I.C.E League

cam justice league

Happy to put the spotlight on Cam of J.U.S.T.I.C.E League: who seems like a very humble guy and I am very impressed with his beats. He has worked with Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, and many more. But more importantly, his talent is evident – not a trap/limited talent producer. The real deal.

Here’s a track the Vegas producer manufactured that I love called “Cocoa Butter Kisses” with Chance ft Vic Mensa & Twista. It’s co-produced by Peter Cottontale. It’s very intricate. Chance absolutely spazzes on this track with unbelievable drums and synths. Couldn’t have fit Chance with a better beat.

 

This track right here makes me so thirsty for some orange soda! Again, hotass drums and very ethereal smooth songs you can REALLY zone out to. Really fitting for Vic Mensa. You can tell Cam is really selective with making sure he works with the right artists and the beat is proper for them!

And here’s another smooth banger I’m enjoying from him!

Keep up with him, he won’t be slowing down any time soon I am sure.
Want to get some behind the scenes? Check out this dope interview with him.

[New Video] Wendall Scott – Smoke 2 This Ft Q Major (Prod. Galaxy)

New track by Wendall Scott and Q-Major, produced by Galaxy. A 4/20 release! Galaxy is an absolute beast on the beats. I’m very impressed with the quality of this video. The verses are on point  - so this gives the song a complete package. Q Major starts it off and does a solid job, bringing energy.

Every time I see a big video release from Boston I’m very cognizant of all the elements because I want my city represented in the best light. The three of these fine gentlemen do a great job! Catchy chorus too.

This is the first time I’ve gotten into Wendall’s music and I’m very impressed.

[Inspiration Monday] Give It 100 & Miss Nosanchuk

To start your week off right, Producers United will now be having this “Inspirational Monday” series. We are proud to have the feature start off with inspiration taken from a site by our good friend Karen X Cheng (and Finbarr Taylor) of GiveIt100. Give it 100 is a platform where you can document your goals – to challenge yourself to reach something you’ve always wanted to do, in 100 days. There is a whole community there to support you – and you take short clips to put on the site. Karen originally did a viral video: the Time Lapse (How I Learned to Dance in a Year) that is absolutely stunning – you can watch below.

Story & Miss Nosanchuk’s Class

miss Nosanchuk

I want to link to this very cute and super entertaining series started by Miss Nosanchuk – every day she documents what a specific 2nd grader learned that day. Some of the answers are beyond cute – and it is especially awesome what we can learn from 2nd graders. They usually digest the most important lessons of life, that sometimes we adults overlook! If you’re like me, it will be very hard to not find yourself watching pretty much all of them in no time.

Hope this inspired you!

Mr. Fritz Will Be Co-Headlining at The Glasshouse Party Tonight

Glasshouse party

Tonight Mr. Fritz, the ProU captain, will be performing alongside Paranom, Red Pages, and Aisling Peartree (all amazing performers) with my favorite DJ Notorious B.K.S” (aka Boston’s Best Kept Secret). BKS killed it at the first Glasshouse party and had everyone dancing and having an amazing time – so that is why I am calling him my favorite DJ. Hopefully he will live up to this superlative I have given him, again, for tonight! I think he will. He plays dope classics / and gets everyone grooving!

Mr. Fritz will be debuting some newly released material. He has recently been killing it in preparation for his “The Glory” album to come this Summer. His “Girl Next Door” track charted on SoundCloud, and his “Graduation Day” (Draft Day Remix) has been buzzing as well.

Be there at 87 Washington St, in Salem, MA tonight. It will be a FREE event, and packed and an amazing time with amazing performers hosted by Mr. Jon Glass. An incredible dude and very talented producer (the head of Glasshouse Productions)

Rain Check Mondays Week 2 ft BoyCott Blues – “iKnow”

Fresh off opening up for a sold out RJD2 concert, Rain of Producers United x The Brain Trust drops his latest throwback single for “Rain Check Mondays”. week 2 of the series brings us a fresh feeling song with BoyCott Blues (featured on 2DBz & well known around the underground)

This is a followup to Week 1 which was a REKS throwback track that hit over 2400 plays on SoundCloud (and still climbing). REKS’ mother even commented that it was one of her favorite songs!).

Enjoyed this weeks track? Get the free download here!

Story By Rain

BoyCott Blues may be one of my favorite MC’s that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He’s a genuinely witty dude so naturally, his style is easily digested and most of the time will make you laugh at least twice in any given verse. We linked up a few years back when we were label mates (Brick Records). Blues and I became friends and continue to work on new music. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the pleasure of recording this particular track. This was originally supposed to be a REKS joint but he was working on a million other records at the time. So I gave the beat to Blues. REKS hit me up and was like “I can’t believe you gave that beat away!! But after hearing what Blues did to it, I can’t even be mad…hahaha”

Don’t forget to peep the video too!
