Hey everyone! DJ Form is back this week with a Hip-Hop mix! There’s a lot of great stuff in here including some Incorporated Elements beats sprinkled throughout! Pass it to all your friends and bump, bump all weekend!
Here is Ric with his Next Great Dynamic Blog Post! Enjoy!
Hey, all! Just wanted to give a quick update on the Next Great Dynamic Producer Showcase that I was involved in this past weekend. Dynamic Producer is a great company that is really trying to give up-and-coming producers some cool opportunities. They asked me to come up and do a panel called “Beats, Grind, and Life” with Hi-Tek and Kill Will. If you don’t know who those producers are, you NEED to Google them. Not only are they super talented producers, but they are some of the coolest dudes ever. I can’t wait to work with them on some music!
1 Shot Management was there as well to share some of their knowledge and experience with everyone, and to judge the producer showcase competition. Congrats to DJ Corbett for winning the competition. There was so much great music from all the producers who entered.
It was an amazing experience for me to get to go back to my hometown of Cincinnati, and be a part of this. Coming from Cincinnati, I know that there is a great crop of talent from there, but it was great to actually experience it.
Producers also came from as far as Indianapolis, Chicago, Philly, and other spots. I love the vibe of events like this, where there is a mutual respect for each other, and it’s genuinely fun.
Felisha Booker and her team with Dynamic Producer put on a very professional showcase, but it didn’t feel too stuffy or “industry.” I loved that. It really was about the music, the respect of each other’s talents, sharing knowledge and experience, and building good relationships. I can see myself doing a lot of work with Dynamic Producer in the future.
For those of you who don’t know, Hip-Hop and R&B music is where I came from, so it has a special place in my heart. To be able to do things that may help new producers in those genres is very fulfilling to me…and to do it in the town where I first came to love music was even better!

Hola muchachos y muchachas! We’re going to take a little poll to see what we should name our New Music Wednesday posts. Go ahead and click on which ever name you like best! We’d love to see what you think about what we have so far. Vote for your favorite! Leave us a comment if you think you can top these submissions!
Okay, we’re back with our second free music Wednesday. We had a few good suggestions for the official title of what our free music day should be called, but we have yet to find that magic! Leave us some more comments on what you think it should be called. There might even be some magic in it for you as well!
This week is one that we are particularly excited about because it’s a DJ Form mixtape exclusive! Download over an hour of seamlessly mixed dance, club, and party hits to keep your butt moving all weekend! This mix is guaranteed to move the crowd at whatever you have planned this weekend. Or, you can just slam dance to it on your iPod, in your car or bedroom if you’re dippin on the lonely. Be careful with the slam dancing in the car though!
It’s over an hour long, so make sure you have a high-speed internet connection to download this file.
This is the first in a series of many mixes and mixtapes from DJ Form that we’re going to be releasing, so we hope you enjoy and get ready for more!
Click the down arrow on the right to download!
We’re giving away our Adele remix for (insert free music Wednesday title here). We’re very excited to finally be getting this to you to bump and bump as you see fit. We’ve really appreciated all the love you’ve given us! So, pass along the link to this post to whom ever you may come across on this road of life. Be it, Grandma or your local radio station DJ!
Also, we’d like an awesome name for our free music Wednesday. We’ve got some ideas, but we’d like you to be involved! Leave us a comment on this post and make it good because we’re only allowing one guess per person, just to make it interesting. Aside from the potential naming of our music day for all time and eternity, there may also be some extra rewards that go along with it!
So download the remix and bump it hard while you think of your submission!!!!
To download, click “download” on the player. That will take you to our Bandcamp site where you can download away!!!
“…get ready, because tomorrow will be the first release, so spread the word!”
Tomorrow, we’re doing it all over again with our second cross country road trip. The first one was a blast, full of good music (thanks to you), good coffee, good food, and great times, and we’re excited to do it all over again, this time for good. You can follow our adventures on Twitter at @iemediagroup. Also, we’ll be doing updates each morning on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/IncorporatedElements. We’re doing the same route this time as last time (Tacoma-Portland-Boise-Salt Lake-Denver-Kansas City-St Louis-Nashville), so if we’re coming to your area, let us know so we can shout you out. Also, be sure to subscribe, as we’ll continue these updates from the studio (and other musical locales) in Nashville once we get settled. So the fun will keep on coming long after this trip is in the books.
Thank you each and every one of you for your comments on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube during our first trip-we see each one, and had a great time reading them. Keep them coming-we love hearing from you all.
Until next time…
Nashville or bust.
So with Nate and Eric moving cross-country over the next couple of weeks, we’ve been doing a lot of planning, trying to ensure that the process is smooth as possible. We thought we covered all of our bases-until we took stock in our travel time. We will be driving to Nashville from Washington state-not once-but twice, which makes for A LOT of driving. And we all three agree-every road trip needs theme music.
This is where you come in.
We need suggestions. Sure, we have our favorite music already queued up, but you can only listen to Pat Benatar’s greatest hits so many times before you need a switch. If you have music that you feel we need to have for the trips, let us know, and we’ll go to iTunes and check it out. We’ll try to keep you all updated via our twitter (@iemediagroup) which of your suggestions we’re listening to on the trip, and where in the country we’re listening to them. And if we really love the music, you may even get a shout-out. 🙂
Thank you for your help!
As many of you know, I.E. currently operates out of two primary locations: Nashville (Ric) and Tacoma, Washington (Eric & Nate). While we’re able to make this work pretty efficiently via the Internet and phone calls, it’s become evident that the only way we are going to be 100% effective is if we were all in one central location. So after 18 months of planning, the time has come…next week, Nate and I will be driving down to Nashville to begin the moving process.
With that, this week will mark the last week Nate and I will work out of our faithful home studio, Winona Drive Studios. After nearly 7 years, it has served us well. Take a good look-for us Washingtonians, this is where it all began…
