RENDRD, has teamed up with SKIO to give young producers an amazing resource. RENDRD is a vancouver based creative collective and media outlet geared towards, “Proactive artists to express their ideas, promote all local art scenes transparently, and highlight subtle societal issues that make a huge impact in our day-to-day.”
If you are a music producer and haven’t heard of SKIO, then you have to change that. The SKIO team consists of a Grammy-winning music producer/engineer, experienced entrepreneurs, tech developers and entertainment attorneys. They banded together to , “Provide tools for artists and record labels to increase commercial opportunities and enable strategic collaboration by removing the legal and administrative bottleneck in the music industry’s new digital landscape.”
We are proud to partner with them to help premiere the next segment of their ongoing ‘Mentor Mondays.’ This ongoing series helps young producers with tips and collections of insights & philosophies from some awesome artists. DJ Vespers, Stylust Beats and ill.Gates have all been a part of Mentor Mondays.
The newest artist to share his insight is TroyBoi. The innovative artist behind hits such as “O.G” and “Do You?” is constantly pushing boundaries. Members of the SKIO and RENDRD community were lucky to meet with TroyBoi while in Vancouver for Seasons Festival to speak about the creative process. He is primed for a massive year – and we are lucky enough to have him share some tips.
