New Light Productions – Hip Hop Cats

Hip Hop w/ a Message

Hip hip holds a special place in my heart.

One of the first albums I bought with my own money was The Fugees, Nappy Heads. I’m a huge fan of Mos Def, and others so it was nice to hook up with some MCs that are about more than the drinks and the bling.

Sergio and Josh are from Goleta and are beginning a pretty intense project.

They’re recording about 9 songs that they plan to include in a movie.

The theme is consumer culture, media, and conspiracy theory all rolled into one. Pretty interesting stuff.

Both Sergio and Josh were well prepared and excited to begin the recording side of their project.

Josh hit the booth first and I was impressed by his lyrics and flow. He went from name checking Sean Hannity to questioning modern American priorities. Like I said – interesting stuff!

Sergio hit the booth next and brought the Latin flavor, switching to Spanish for the second half of his verse.

We did some interesting effects and echoes to add to the sinister vibe of the song’s message. The mix was easy the guys went home one step closer to completing their project.

Look out for more from Goleta’s New Light Productions soon…
