Local Hip-Hop Producer Events

With a number of globally recognized artists, a steady supply of used records, and a few emerging institutions, the D.C. area is becoming a hot spot for hip-hop producers. Here are a few events worth checking out in the coming weeks:

King Tubby's Dub Foundation will be hosting a workshop taught by local legend Zach McGant, aka Slimkat. Zach's been banging out beats on the MPC for over a decade and can surely help you pick up some new tricks. Saturday, September 20 at the Darlington House, 1610 20th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009. Workshops start at 1PM. More info here.

The Beat Grinder – D.C.'s producer battle is back for another installment at LIV on September 24th. This edition pays tribute to the late Betty Davis. Damu the Fudgemunk's blog has the info on signing up for the battle.

And on September 25th, Inner Loop Records will be holding a producer showcase and mixtape release party at Felix. More info at Start.Of.The.Line.

    UPDATE: I guess I should have mentioned the Red Bull Big Tune producer battle featuring Nottz and Wale at the 930 Club on 9/24. Yes the same night as the beat grinder. And yo, who does this 2004 Redbull Music Academy Alumni have to put on blast to get a press release or some sort of email? Munch?
