PACKFM: LEGENDARY - Prod x UG (P9D) of Cella Dwellas [Music Video]

It’s been a few years since PACKFM has dropped any new music. The last thing I can recall is the single “Want What’s Mine” in 2011 and then the DOMINION meets HYDRA track “TWELVE“, which dropped 12/12/12. After that, there was the promise of “The Human Highlight Reel” coming in 2012 … … never happened. Well, this is not that, but it is a brand new song, with a video. It’s not from a specific project. It’s a Birthday present to his fans and to himself. See Pack is doing a 40th Birthday Party performance at DROM NYC tonight and so it was a perfect time for the QN5 MC to remind the world that he does this.

Produced by UG P9D (from CellaDwellas), recorded and mixed at Stonebrown Studios, the joint will definitely nod your head. It makes you want to rhyme, which is exactly why Pack returned after his long hiatus.

This track is a result of me just wanting to rhyme. Period. I don’t care about “views” or “likes” or blog posts, because none of those things have anything to do with how we as MC’s put words together. To me that is what makes what we do art. – PACKFM

Pack actually had this entire video shot by his wife using his phone, directed and edited it himself. If you want to catch him in a rare live performance, come to his 40th Birthday Celebration, tonight at Drom. These shows only come once a year. There will be a few surprise guests from MCMI, The Plague, Team Homi and UGHH in the building.

PackFM’s 40th Birthday Celebration June 16th – 8pm – 10:30pm DROM NYC

Substantial: Black Of All Trades (V2) – NPR Tiny Desk Submission [Video]

Substantial: Black Of All Trades (V2) – [NPR Tiny Desk Submission Video]

Substantial: Black Of All Trades points to the fact that there many Black Americans go unrecognized for their numerous talents and achievements. Take Substantial for example, he raps, yes, but he also is a visual artist, both with pencils and brushes and as a graphic artist with the computer. He is also an educator and an A&R at his label. And he does all of those things WELL! Black of All Trades.

In the single’s liner notes on BandCamp, Substantial includes a quote from Hill Harper, an American film, television and stage actor, and author, who says

“I believe we all have the capacity to be masters of many things, and there’s nothing that we can’t do. You can be a great actor and also be a great writer. There’s so many things that all of us have the capacity to do. But somehow, life tries to convince us that we’d be lucky to do even one thing well, and I disagree.” ― Hill Harper

The video, featuring DJ JAV is a submission for NPR’s Tiny Desk contest. It was filmed and edited by CAMCAMTV, at Substantial’s desk at Oxon Hill Middle School where he works with 12 to 14 year olds as a Student Advocate and teaches music production afterschool.

The song, produced by THE OTHER GUYS, is off the recently released LP, THE PAST IS ALWAYS PRESENT IN THE FUTUREavailable on COMPACT DISC, & CASSETTE as well as digital download from

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn – Remixed & Restyled

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn – Remixed & RestyledMCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & RestyledAt MCMI Records, we do most of our recording, mixing and mastering out of one studio. We have for years. The reason? We trust the ear, experience and skill of our chief engineer, Dennis Mitchell.

Dennis is an old school studio engineer who can build compression strips, microphones and mixing boards, make his own cables, build computers and set up speakers and soundproofing for optimum mixing. He’s been recording since AMPEX reels back in the day, but knows the latest hardware and software and is always up to date. Simply put, he is one of the best. Rockafella had Young Guru on the boards; MCMI has Dennis Mitchell.

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & Restyled

Paying his dues at the big studios like Firehouse, INS, Chung King, Electric Ladyland and others, Dennis tracked or mixed sessions for Das EFX, SWV, Wu-tang Clan and many other notable artists.

When Dennis set up his own studio, in an apartment in Park Slope, HYDRA went there. The location didn’t matter. Our mixes came out awesome, with balanced vocals, thumping kicks and punchy snares. His analogue compression modules, and knowledge of frequencies, and his ear (actually, both of them), created amazing results.

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & Restyled

When the studio relocated to 626 Carlton Avenue, in a bigger, dedicated, space (no longer his apartment), we set up shop and started working on out music from Hydra, PH (aka Pumpkinhead), Chordz Cordero, MrMecc, Archrival and other artists down with The Plague and MCMI. The sound was great, Dennis works fast and we got a lot done.

The only thing lacking in that studio was the vocal booth was tiny (could only hold one person) and even the mixing station was very small. Four or five people and you were packed in like sardines. Sill, a lot of artists recorded great music there, including … Young M.A, Lil Fame of M.O.P., Troy Ave and others.

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & Restyled

In 2016, Dennis decided to expand the studio and take it to the next level. He tore down the walls, redid the ceilings and floors and even moved the heating system to create more space. Now the mixing room can accommodate a lot more people, the sound booth can hold a group of people, plus instruments and he has a nice lounge which doubles as a live room or Podcast/Radio show, when needed. Whether you sing, rap or are a DJ making a mixtape, you can record live, mix, have your tracks mastered, even apply autotune or melodine. Stonebrown does it all.

This Tuesday, March 28th, will be an OPEN HOUSE from 7pm – 10pm, for all artists, producers and DJ’s who want to come through, see the new look, play your music through their system and talk to Dennis about your projects’ needs. Special deals will be made, for those who attend. It costs nothing, but you MUST RSVP, to StoneBrownStudios (at) gmail, in order to attend. Once a certain number of people is reached, the list will close, but StoneBrown will be having producer listening sessions in the future, so there will be more opportunities.
