"Beat Makers", An Indie Film On Hip Hop Producers In The Music Business

Reel One Entertainment presents "Beat Makers", an independent documentary on how hip hop producers are striving to come up in the music business. Executive produced by Eddie Singleton and Martin Kelley, this film is an in depth look at how the next generation of hip hop producers are using whatever they have and can get their hands on to develop the sounds of the future.

Directed by Laron Austin, this film completely captures the essence of hungry producers trying to come up in the competitive world of hip hop music production. Broken down into chapters, the documentary touches ground on what it takes for these producers to ultimately find their own level of success in the music business.

Chronicling their starts, struggles and successes, "Beat Makers" includes interviews with producers who have spent years creating their own unique twists on producing rap beats. Posing an array of questions, these interviews take place in familiar settings, such as home studios, vinyl record stores, and even street corners.

The producers involved with the film answer such questions as how they manifest inspiration, where they draw from creative influences, and how they dig to find samples. Producers also share their choice of equipment and software programs used to create their hot beats.

If you are considering a career in hip hop music production, this documentary may be all the inspiration that you need to go forward. I personally took the time to watch this film and was pleasantly surprised with how well it was produced. Being an emcee, having avid enthusiasm for good beats and great music, this documentary definitely struck a chord with me. I suggest you check it out if this is a facet of the rap music business that also fascinates you.

The whole documentary can be viewed on Youtube here...

Inspired by the documentary, the production team behind "Beat Makers" is currently working on their next project entitled "Battle". This new movie is about a hip hop producer looking to start his career in hip hop production by winning a national beat battle competition. With a movie trailer and mixtape on the way, this new movie sounds quite promising.


  1. Manuel “Manny” Alcantara is a rising star in the world of R&B and hip-hop. And while the music industry remains an uphill battle, the multi-talented nineteen year-old Lynn, MA native has watched as his fan base has expanded around the globe. Manny’s songs have been on the radio and he has performed to crowds that are growing in both size and enthusiasm. But now he is being asked to climb an even higher mountain to engage a fierce enemy…Drunk Driving.

    Manny was recently named the 2009 New England Hip Hop and R&B Spokesperson for the Ground Control Drunk Driving Prevention Campaign. This first of its kind program uses up-and-coming talented musicians to educate American teenagers about the dangers associated with drinking and driving.

    Manny’s association with Ground Control has afforded this Lynn, MA. resident a unique insight into the ways drunk driving effects American society. Says Manny, “I feel privileged to be able to make a difference. Being a young adult I am on the front lines. Kids my age are dying everyday and for what? I think it is amazing that I have been asked to use my music to draw attention to the fact that these terrible tragedies are preventable. If my music can save even one life, then I will feel I have accomplished a lot.”

    I hope we can count on you to help us shine some light on both this amazing and talented young artist and this important cause, in the form of a quote or media attention. Your involvement with our cause is vital this season in helping Manny and GROUND CONTROL save lives.

    Both Manny and the President of the Ground Control Campaign are available for phone interviews at your convenience.
