Latasha Alcindor

MSCLVR Interview Series #035 w/ Latasha Alcindor, Artist. Rapper. Singer. Performer. Creative.

Latasha AlcindorThis episode of the podcast is featuring Artist, Rapper, Singer, Performer, Creative – Latasha Alcindor! Our time together was brief but I am choosing to believe that Latasha is leading a very charmed life – not many people go from “I’m not a rapper” to opening for Kanye West in a matter of a few years…so yea, if you haven’t heard of her – stay tuned!

Another short but sweet take from The Digilogue – Latasha Alcindor is quintuple threat and her diverse talents have helped her to get to a place where her music supports her lifestyle in very short order. As you’ll hear during the interview LA didn’t really even know she was a Rapper until other people told her as much.  Next think you know she is opening for some of Rap’s greatest off the strength of her album “The Presentation” which we will link to in the description. It’s dope.

Latasha AlcindorBeyond her musical talent, though, I think Latasha is also seeing success because of her readiness to adopt and adapt to technology.  She began to see the value of streaming when she discovered one of her songs had a strong following in Sao Paolo, Brazil – something an independent could hardly ever achieve before the digital age.  LA communicates w/ her fans through Soundcloud and uses the data to inform her creative and business decisions.

I think LA is a shining example of success for today’s Independent Artist – it’s futile to swim against the grain – the “value” of music may never be perfectly aligned w/ the dollars and cents of streaming payouts for all Artists but if you can extract information from data you can build a meaningful career.

So without further ado…Latasha Alcindor!

033 – Justin Munoz, Creative Director, Anyworld (Music in AR/VR Worlds)

MSCLVR Interview Series #033 w/ Justin Munoz, Creative Director, Anyworld [Music in AR/VR Worlds]

Justin MunozThis episode of the podcast is featuring the multitalented, multimedia creator Justin Muñoz – Creative Director at AnyWorld – a Virtual Reality agency based in NY. Justin is a maker. His work is his play and he’s got a lot to say about the roles of audio in augmented and virtual realities and, subsequently, the roles of VR and AR in music!   

We recorded today’s interview in early October in NYC at “The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue powered by our friends at Sennheiser – Sennheiser is shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique approach to audio innovation, a passion for excellence, and, of course, a rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones. Heading somewhere for the holidays? For all those frequent travelers among you, check out Sennheiser’s PXC550 premium travel headphones, with 32 hours of battery life, noise cancellation and stunning Sennheiser sound – it’s a perfect travel companion! I have been wearing them for the editing of this show and I’ve got to say I sound AHHmazing – thanks Sennheiser 🙂 –  Stay tuned to the end for info on The Digilogue and their partnership w/ Sennheiser.

In this series of interviews recorded at the Digilogue this was actually the very first so we got to know Justin over the course of a few days and I don’t doubt that we will be inviting him back one day.

Justin demoed an augmented reality experience for us that not only allowed you to escape to a beautiful beach in Puerto Rico – but within that AR experience you got to manipulate and control a 3D audio experience for yourself because the accompanying music and the individual instrumentation would respond to your spatial coordinates making it feel like a live performance in an augmented world.

Okay – I know – what are you even talking about Davin?  Even as I type the words it sounds like I am speaking in code and I imagine this is how Justin must feel because he creates in spaces that, at the moment, can only be understood when experienced and can hardly be described in English.

But alas we do our very best in this interview and I promise Justin articulates his work way better than me so without further ado…Justin Muñoz!

031 – Mike Kuz – 2x Grammy Nominated Producer/Engineer

MSCLVR Interview Series #031 with Mike Kuz, 2x Grammy Nominated Producer/Engineer

This episode of the podcast is featuring the inestimable Mike Kuz – 2x Grammy Nominated Producer/Engineer and Head Mixing Engineer at SweetSounds Studio.  We met at the Digilogue event in early October and you can check out his Masterclass which appears right before this episode in the show queue!  

We recorded today’s interview a few weeks ago in NYC at “The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue powered by our friends at Sennheiser – Sennheiser is shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique approach to audio innovation, a passion for excellence, and, of course, a rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones – be sure to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset that allows you to record and play audio back in 3D sound – if you have no experienced 3d sound it will undoubtedly change the way you experience your content consumption – mind blowing stuff really! Stay tuned to the end for info on The Digilogue and their partnership w/ Sennheiser.

Yet another short but sweet take from The Digilogue – Mike Kuz! After hearing Mike’s masterclass and then sitting down with him for the interview I got the feeling that Mike is one of the good guys in this business of music.  Don’t get me wrong – this is not at all a reflection of anyone else we’ve interviewed to date – all of our guests are exceptional people – Mike just exudes a unique mix of hustle, humility, determination, and an openness – all of that while working w/ some of today’s hottest Artists like Drake, Wale, Common, et al.

In this interview we learn about Mike’s journey from childhood musings of creating sounds and beats w/ stock software on nascent PC technology, to exploring FruityLoops, to making music w/ friends ultimately leading him to a music program in college which subsequently lead to an internship that set up his first 1:1 w/ start Artist, Wyclef.

I am reticent to say that the rest is history as I am sure the story is still just beginning – and without further ado…Mike Kuz!

Today’s release is from the “Digital Marketing” masterclass recorded on Oct 5th, on Day 2 of the series hosted by super talented producer and engineer Mike Kuz! Mike has been in the game for 13 years and he is a shining example of how hard work, dedication, and really mastering your craft can pay off.

He studied music while in college but it was his internship and the work he did outside of the classroom that put him on the path to work with talented beatmakers like JustBlaze  as well as superstar Artists like J Cole, Wale, Drake and Common (with whom Mike earned two Grammy nominations!)

The implications of this conversation are relevant to all who have an interest in the the path of a music producer and/or engineer – though his message will alert you to why being a bit of both would serve your career much better  – so without further ado….The Future of Audio Series:

029 – Matt Bond, Founder, CEO of Treble.fm

MSCLVR Interview Series #029 with Matt Bond, Founder, CEO of Treble.fm

This episode of the podcast is featuring the inestimable Matt Bond – founder CEO of Treble.fm – a mobile marketplace of sorts where musicians looking for collaborators can talent in their area for all things music including production, mixing, mastering, to album art, press and video.

We recorded today’s interview a few weeks ago in NYC at “The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue powered by our friends at Sennheiser – Sennheiser is shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique approach to audio innovation, a passion for excellence, and, of course, a rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones – be sure to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset that allows you to record and play audio back in 3D sound – if you have no experienced 3d sound it will undoubtedly change the way you experience your content consumption – mind blowing stuff really! Stay tuned to the end for info on The Digilogue and their partnership w/ Sennheiser.

This is another short but sweet one from The Digilogue and the story of Treble.fm is definitely one to watch. The young company has already been featured by media outlets like Complex and they’ve had a few break out success stories of Artists finding collaborators whereby those new connections resulting in new music generating millions of streams — and Matt and the team at Treble get to revel in the satisfaction that their efforts are having the desired impact.

What if Andre and Big Boi of Outkast never met? You might be able to ask that same question of every group or band you admire.  Whether by chance or by Craigslist – technology always seems to find a way to increment industries towards greater odds of success and I believe Matt is definitely onto something w/ Treble and no doubt the world will be impacted by the collaborations that are facilitated thanks to their work.

Today’s release is from the “Digital Marketing” masterclass recorded on Oct 6th, on Day 3 of the series hosted by the super talented and quite frankly, supremely engaging Jordan Chalmers! Jordan is one of those guys that is so good at pattern recognition and pushing the envelope that they had to create a new role for him at Atlantic Records where he is now the Lifestyle and Influencer Marketing Manager.

We’ve spoken about Influencer Marketing in music here on the podcast before so if Jordan gets you excited about this topic definitely check out the interview we did w/ Nick Yeeles in episode number 8 back in July!

In this masterclass Jordan gives the audience a literal plethora of examples of clever and, just as importantly, achievable digital marketing and influencer partnership strategies that he employs at Atlantic Records for Artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Cardi B, Bruno Mars and more.  

The implications of this conversation are relevant to all who have an interest in the expanding world of Influencer marketing which presumably includes you if you’re still with us and in you’re absolutely in for a treat – so without further ado….The Future of Audio Series: Digital Marketing Masterclass by Jordan Chalmers!

027 – Abhita Austin, Future Music Moguls Program, NYU

MSCLVR Interview Series #027 w/ Abhita Austin, Future Music Moguls Program, NYU

This episode of the podcast is featuring the super talented Abhita Austin, recording engineer, music producer, and wearer of many hats including leadership roles at Gender Amplified (celebrating and supporting women in music production), Pushing Buttons Collective, as well providing instruction at Future Music Moguls Program at NYU. And I know there is more but you get the point – Abhita stays busy!

We recorded today’s interview a few weeks ago in NYC at “The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue powered by our friends at Sennheiser – Sennheiser is shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique approach to audio innovation, a passion for excellence, and, of course, a rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones – be sure to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset that allows you to record and play audio back in 3D sound – if you have no experienced 3d sound it will undoubtedly change the way you experience your content consumption – mind blowing stuff really! Stay tuned to the end for info on The Digilogue and their partnership w/ Sennheiser

This one like the episode we dropped last week w/ Chen Lo is short but very sweet – Abhita was kind enough to sit with us shortly before she gave her Intro to Logic Masterclass which you can find on this very podcast – it should be the episode just ahead of this one so if you missed it definitely give it a listen if are interested in music production, the Logic software suite, and/or are just curious about how beats are made.

In this discussion we get a bit more background on how Abhita has thrived in stereotypically male dominated fields. She played the drums growing up so perhaps that early experience of being somewhat of an “outlier” prepared her mentally for her eventual decision to pursue music production and engineering – another vertical within the music industry that has generally attracted more men and thus, made it challenging for women to get their due recognition in many respects.

Abhita was such a fun person to interview and I hope we can get her back for a MSCLVR After Dark – I am sure she’s got some great stories we all can learn from!

026 – Intro to Logic Masterclass with Abhita Austin at The Digilogue Future of Audio Series (powered by Sennheiser)

#026 – Intro to Logic Masterclass w/ Abhita Austin @ The Digilogue Future of Audio Series (powered by Sennheiser)

Today’s episode is another special installment of the podcast featuring live recorded content from the “Shape The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue based in NYC and powered by none other than Sennheiser – if you are not familiar Sennheiser shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique culture of innovation, a passion for excellence, and rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones and you audiophiles out there will def want to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset with 3D sound – it will blow your mind!

The Future of Audio Series was an intimate 4 day summit in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood at the Interface creative lounge earlier this October.  There were live music performances, power packed panels, and masterclasses where Artist and Industry folks shared in extensive dialogue on topics like VR, 3D audio, the economics of streaming music, and all manner of related topics in between. And thanks to our friends at Sennheiser – it was free to attend!

If you didn’t get to participate this time around be sure to check out future events at www.thedigilogue.com and fear not, the MSCLVR podcast was there to record interviews many of the speakers and panelists and, of course, we are also bringing you the recorded audio so that you, too, can benefit from the awesome knowledge transfer that occurred each day.

Today’s release is from the “Intro to Logic” masterclass recorded on Oct 5th, on Day 2 of the series hosted by super talented engineer/producer, and educator at the Future Music Moguls Program at NYU  – Abhita Austin!

In this masterclass Abhita takes the audience through beat production in the Logic software suite from scratch!  Now I know what you may be thinking – “what can I take away from just the audio when I can’t see her navigating the tools on screen?”

What I think any listener can take away from this audio segment is hearing how a master of production thinks through her process, the best practices she employs, and, of course, she does a great Q&A at the end so if you’ve ever wanted to dabble in music creation there is something in here for you!

We had a chance to catch up with Abhita for a 1:1 interview so make sure you’re subscribed and stayed tuned for that interview – you won’t want to miss that!

The implications of this conversation are relevant to all who interested in music production, the Logic software suite, and/or are just curious about how beats are made.
