Swizz Beatz and DJ Toomp to be Honored at One Stop Shop Conference
The event, which is scheduled to take place March 8 and 9 in Phoenix, AZ, will feature top industry professionals, platinum track-making producers, and new technology trends from companies like Microsoft, M Audio, and Traxxpad.
In addition, conference goers will be able to attend video game tournaments, after parties hosted by various New York City DJs, the One Stop Shop Beat Battle and industry workshops/panels.
Arif Gursel, a software test engineer in the Microsoft XBOX team, will host the Microsoft Technology Panel, while the Power Management Panel will feature Gee Roberson, Derick Jackson, Bernard Parks and Ryan Press.
The conference will also include a tastemaker panel and a new producer panel.
With a number of revered producers and music industry professionals attending the event, event organizer Sha Money XL believes new beatmakers will find the experience informative as well as beneficial.
"It's time to give back and spread the knowledge and have a place for everyone to network," said Sha Money XL, whose production and artist management company Money Management Group, promotes the importance of branding to producers and artists. "Your network determines your net worth. So if you sitting home while all the top producers and record execs and managers are all in one building exchanging contacts and info, you ain't serious about this."
Organized by Money Management Group, the One Stop Shop producer's conference drew more than 700 producers from around the world last year.
Swizz Beatz and DJ Toomp will be honored at the 2008 event, which will include appearances from DJ Premier, Hi-Tek, DJ Quik, 9th Wonder, No ID, Trackboyz and Nottz.
Other panelists include Shalik Berry (Def Jam), Conrad Dimanche (Bad Boy), Jean Nelson (Atlantic), Lenny S., (Def Jam), Wendy Day (Rap Coalition), Chuck Creekmur (AllHipHop.com), Bonsu Thompson, Julia Beverly (Ozone), Juan Madrid (Sony ATV) and Maani Edwards (Universal Publishing).
