Lyrics Lounge: Session VI | Season 2

October 8, 2010

Making a hit record certainly isn’t easy. Therefore, Lyrics Lounge took a trip to award winning music studio Stadium Red to see what goes on behind the scenes during production. Conveniently located in Harlem, New York, our youth were exposed to some of the great things going on right in their backyard. Stadium Red’s distinguished list of clients includes Mos Def, T.I., and the late Ray Charles. It is also home to Grammy award winning producers Just Blaze (Jay-Z, Eminem, Diddy) and Sid “Omen” Brown (Drake, Juelz Santana, Fabolous, Fat Joe). As far as the happenings, we set out for a 5:30pm appointment at the Stadium. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Juliet Lerman, the studio manager, and were escorted to Studio A. After making ourselves at home (all backpacks off), we got down to the nuts and bolts of our visit. Our theme for the day was “Studio Dynamics: Traditional Recording Jobs and Guerilla Production.” Our students were given a “Studio Scavenger Hunt” full of questions about recording studio equipment and standard practices. To help students with their exercise, Juilet introduced some of the studio’s other notable personnel. Among them was Grammy award nominated engineer Ariel Borujow. Students were ecstatic. After an intimate conversation with Ariel about mixing, mastering, and his experiences working with P. Diddy and T.I. (just to name a few), our youth got a chance to actually record a song in the studio. Pretty sweet, huh? What a day! Decked out in our new, shinny Lyrics Lounge t-shirts, we were all so inspired by the experience. We keep the bar raised to the ceiling at Lyrics Lounge, and there’s only more to come. Come be a part of the movement!

Where They Do That At?

Check us out in the studio working hard and creating smart.
