Azmyth Recording Studio and School?

If Azmyth Recording isn’t putting Nap on the map, then I don’t know who is. They have brought in talent and worked with names like Eminem, Mike Posner, Kirko Bangz and so many more. They are currently welcoming any student who is eager to learn about the behind-the-scenes magic and who wants to pursue a career in music. An engineer’s job is not an easy one and having Azmyth to consult and learn from is a great opportunity to build musical talent. They teach you every aspect of the job in order to prepare you for what really goes down in the studio.

“Azmyth was started by Ryan Adkins after he became frustrated with high recording prices and the unfriendly corporate atmosphere, he decided to start his own business venture. In June of 1999, Azmyth Recording was born Azmyth School of Music Technology was started to feed the need of teaching the youth about our craft. We started in May of 2011. You can find more info on our website on www.azmythrecording.com.”

Ryan Adkins and Eminem at Azmyth

Two of Azmyth’s engineers are Ryan Adkins and Travis “Kold Kut” Moore. You can check out them and the other engineers on the staff page of the Azmyth website (http://www.azmythrecording.com/staff). Both of them have a representable resume along with Zig, Shecky,and Mike Lyons at Azmyth. Ryan is the studio owner/chief engineer and Mike Lyons is the studio manager/engineer. The other guys are producers/engineers and damn good at what they do. Their website is a great tool to find out more about  what Azmyth has done and what they will do

National Acts

According to Kut, Azmyth has worked with “local, regional, and national acts of all genres such as notable national acts: Eminem, Mike Posner, Kirko Bangz, Project Pat, and Aimee Allen. Just continuing to be the premier recording studio in the state of Indiana as well as building our school is our focus.”

According to Azmyth’s website, Ryan Adkins’ “work speaks for itself, working with many national acts such as, Eminem & D-12, Haste The Day, Young Buck, Emery, 8-Ball & MJG, Eboni Foster, Cappadonna (of the Wu-Tang Clan), Mike Epps, Aimee Allen, Lil Flip, David Chastain, Lamar Campbell, Brazil, Still Remains, Demiricous, Scott Russo (of Unwritten Law) and many more.”

Local Talent that Works with Azmyth

I’ve written about some of the acts these guys have produced– PI-C, Peter Haze, and John Overton. These links will take you straight to the article written about them.

P-IC

@UGskywalkin and @ICskywalkin

I know I took a long break from writing. You know how life gets though. Work, work, spend too much time on the boyfriend, but I’ve got a damn good reason to be back at it. P-IC!! Some people reading this already know who they are, others are about to be aware. According to their website, “P-IC  is a rap group that has been putting in work in the underground hip hop scene, out of the Mid-West, and has generated a significant following.” They are currently on the Smoker’s Club Tour with Smoke Dza, Big Krit, Curren$y, and Method Man but in ATL P-IC made connections with Ludacris and 2Chainz also. They just left Atlanta and will be making their way to Las Vegas and Virginia, but have already been to Indianapolis and Chicago.

Prince UG said, “What makes us different is we’re part of the cult of very few artists who are real in the game and stay true to themselves, and as you grow in hip hop so does your music. We’re on a  7 year grind, it speaks for itself.”

Best Duo in the Midwest

The Artists

The group is made of 2 artists– Prince UG and Ivan C. What makes these guys such good artists and such a good match for one another is that they come from 2 different backgrounds. Prince UG is from Uganda, part of East Africa and Ivan C comes from Chicago, Illinois–their deliveries are significantly different, somehow significantly one.  According to Ivan C, their “subject matter appeals to everyone they talk about, everyday situations that people can relate to; men, women, the suburbs and the inner city. We make music to make people feel good, that’s what we’re about.”

The best way to take my word for it is to listen to their latest mixtape Skyology 101 on their website, http://http://skywalkwithp-ic.com/. Check out their bio, videos, photos, and of course, MUSIC. Can’t forget their YouTube. That’s where all the latest music and videos go!  http://www.youtube.com/skywalkin10. Check out the latest in Atlanta with the Smoker’s Club Tour on there, too!

P-IC released their debut album, “ON TYME”, in mid-March 2009. That album began their significant following. It only took one CD for people to get hooked. And then two more came out and those people became fans. “Bonged and Baked” was their first mixtape which came out in October 2009, and was hosted by DJ Scream and DJ Jay-O. Their second mixtape Skyology 101 was released in  February 2011. By far my favorite album so far has been Skyology 101. I groove to the entire album. During my workouts, you better believe it’s one of my playlists. After following them for quite some time, I can honestly say their music gets better everytime they record. Even their first few singles I remember hearing, “Shotgun Weddin” and “Spillin’ It” were more than average. They certainly know how to capture someone’s ear from beginning of the song until the end.

Make Music for the Fans 

The best part about P-IC though, is that they’re down to earth, good guys. They’re not the typical artists who just do it to get attention, they do it because they truly love the genre of hip hop. When they do make it ALL  the way, they’re going to go far with their fans because they put them first. They make music for the fans and music they can relate to. P-IC is planning to release their third mixtape featuring DJ Green Lantern, Big Krit and Smoke Dza. Be on the lookout for it! It sure to be even better than their last.
