Are you an amateur producer looking for an unbiased opinion on that unreleased banger you’ve been sitting on? Perhaps you’re a more veteran music-maker looking to make new connections and find fresh avenues of collaboration? Whatever your skill level, the Producers Social will welcome you with open arms.
If you’re wondering what a ‘Producers Social’ might entail, let us get you up to speed. It aims to bring local music producers and composers together for the purpose of collectively honing their skills and networking with like-minded individuals. Each artist in attendance presents an original piece of work to the group; they are then given advice and constructive criticisms from an audience of their musical peers. Each event is hosted by renowned artists from the area, and occasionally workshops are held on specific aspects of music production. It’s an excellent way to step up your game, and is quite accessible as well; originating in Los Angeles, the recurring event can now be found in San Francisco and, most recently, Santa Cruz.
In fact, the latest Producers Social is going down tonight in that gorgeous, coastal hub of sonic gems. Taking place at the Indigital Studios & Institute of Recording Arts, one of the most breathtaking and state-of-the-art recording studios on the West Coast, the event is sure to draw plenty of Santa Cruz’s uniquely talented beat-hustlers. The hosts for tonight are local legends Smasheltooth and Lowgritt, so everyone will certainly be in good hands. If you can’t make it out tonight, don’t fret; the Santa Cruz Producers Social takes place once a month, every second Tuesday.
