Tuesday night Rémy Martin made the next stop in their “The Producers Series” competition at New York’s Taj nightclub. The qualifying event in the beatmakers contest was headlined by Super Producer Honorable C.N.O.T.E, was was interviewed by Power 105.1/ MTV host Charlamagne Tha God.
During a “Tech Talk” with the capacity crowd, C.N.O.T.E shared advice for upcoming producers and techniques for making beats like A$AP Ferg & 2 Chainz “New Level.”
While demonstrating how he comes up with tracks, he called his protégé, Baltimore rapper Tate Kobang to the stage to talk about how they work together, and treated the crowd to an impromptu performance before the competition.
As for the competition, three producers, Ellio, from the Boston-area, Evan Brown and Priority Mel, both from NYC, went head-to-head, elimination style. Against the audience’s judgement, the first round was a three-way tie; believing Ellio and Priority Mel should have advanced. After two rounds, the Ellio and Evan Brown squared off, with Evan Brown, well known in NYC’s beat battle circles, advancing as the fourth semi-finalist; another hotly audience-debated outcome.
