Hey party people. Steve Nalepa here, one of the instructors for the online school and also our soon to open DSLA. Looking forward to working with you! I wanted to give you all a heads up about TeamSupreme, a project a crew of friends and I started where we host weekly beat cyphers, run a record label and put on monthly live shows in LA. The weekly beat tapes are now open submission style so anyone can play, the rules and samples are generally posted on the TeamSupreme Facebook page on Wednesdays. Submissions are due 6pm PST Sunday night. Every week a different producer picks the rules, usually a couple samples and a given bpm, and you make a one minute beat. The best stuff gets stitched together and given away as a free mixtape. There's no guarantee you'll make the cut, but it is a great weekly exercise and potentially a nice way to get some exposure for yourself. Thought I'd share if you are looking for inspiration.
