Veteran music producer, Da’ Hammer, has launched a new project to help young music producers.
Taking to Facebook, the executive producer born Edward Nana Poku Osei remarked that he has realised that young music producers are not able to get their beats to be heard by superstars.
For this reason, he has set up a dedicated email where young beats producers can send their beats. And then he (Da Hammer) would send the beats to top musicians such as Mr Eazi, Sarkodie, Edem, etc.
And once these stars love the beat and compose songs with it, it will give the opportunity for these young producers to be heard by many.
Da Hammer remarked that although he’s into other fields of business now, he believes this can be a way by which he can help the growing Ghanaian music industry.
Read his full message below:
Been doing some thinking and realized there are so many ways I could continue to serve my colleagues in this industry like I have for 20yrs.
Just because I moved on to other business interests doesn’t necessarily have to be the end of my service to this fragile and still growing music industry. One of the problems I’ve sighted amongst my young upcoming producers, is the lack of opportunity to be heard by great, more-established artists and superstars. Most of these young producers are stuck with super beats just because they lack the audience to pitch or showcase their stuff.
Moving forward, I’ve decided to begin my return to service with fixing that, and so effective immediately, I’m asking all producers who want the opportunity to be heard by superstars like Stonebwoy, Sark, MDK, Kuami Eugene, Mr. Eazi, Edem, king promise, Pappi, Jøëy, EL, Phlow or any other artist to send their beat submissions clearly labeled and with all relevant information including your name, your contact information, your target artist etc. to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
With all assurances, protecting your rights and ownership as permitted by law, will be my topmost priority. I can’t promise the artist will take or use your beats though but I can guarantee they will definitely hear it.
It’s also important that you know I won’t have any interest in a potential deal between you and the target artist; unless of course, you solicit a publishing deal from us to cover and protect your publishing interests contained in the composition/ song.
Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.
