THE “TECH TALK”:
To a capacity crowd, and a line down the block clamoring to get in, Honorable C.N.O.T.E.
, interviewed by Charlamange, conducted a 30-minute music “Tech Talk,” sharing his journey as a producer and giving advice to producers in the room that ranged from “…don’t compete with producers on your level…” to “…work everybody…”. While demonstrating how he comes up with tracks, he called his protégé, Baltimore rapper Tate Kobang to the stage to talk about how they work together, and treated the crowd to an impromptu performance before the competition.

THE COMPETITION: If last night’s “The Producers Series” fourth qualifying round is any indication of how fierce the completion will be come September’s finale, fans of the series have a lot to look forward to. The three producers, Ellio, from the Boston-area, Evan Brown and Priority Mel, both from NYC, went head-to-head, elimination style. Against the audience’s judgement, the first round was a three-way tie; believing Ellio and Priority Mel should have advanced. After two rounds, the Ellio and Evan Brown squared off, with Evan Brown, well known in NYC’s beat battle circles, advancing as the fourth semi-finalist; another hotly audience-debated outcome.
NEXT EVENT: The next qualifying event will be held in Philadelphia, Tuesday, August 15 WITH…Wyclef Jean headlining.
About RémyMartin Presents “The Producers Series”
During its inaugural season in New York City, RémyMartin Presents “The Producers Series” featured some of the hottest producers in the game: legends and trend setters Mike Will Made-It, Pete Rock, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, and AraabMuzik–all with the goal to provide insights into music production and music critique for the competing up-and-coming producers.
And, “Season 2” is more of the same: the first two NYC-qualifiers featured DJ Premiere (@ La Marina) and Wyclef Jean (@Tao Downtown). While the competition series has not limited producers from other cities from submitting tracks for consideration and competition at the New York City qualifiers, Rémy Martin felt it important to open up the program into new markets in order to give local talent to shine on a national platform.
