I just had to ask a few questions about getting my material to the right people. I do songwriting and production for Hip Hop and R&B and have a lot of energy and ideas and need guidance from someone with more experience. I also went to school for recording and just recently build my own recording studio. For my studio I went with the new Sony DMX-R100 digital mixer hooked up with the Tascam MX2424 with numerous different outboard gear alongside my sequencers, keyboards, sound modules,etc. I have been in songwriting and production for a while now and now have all the tools necessary to present professional tracks to labels. My overall goal is to land a production deal with a label. I'd appreciate any feedback and apologize if these questions show any experience in my part, I'm only 22 wha did u expect.


P. S. Remember that name because one day it'll all make sense.

Check with all the R&B / Hip Hop labels you can and find out what there submission policy is. Some may not accept unsolicited material at all. Other's might ask that you send a tape with maybe three of you best songs.
At any rate this might be a good starting point.
