Check Out the “Music Made at Depth Charge Studios” YouTube Playlist

Depth Charge Studios is older than YouTube.  We’ve been around long enough to have worked on scores of records that were later released with accompanying video.  In recognition, Mister Wise has put together a playlist of as many as he could remember and shared it here for your enjoyment.  The playlist is also running on a continuous loop on the video monitor in our client lounge. We are sure we are missing plenty of videos. If you are a Depth Charge client and have a professionally produced music video for a track that was produced, recorded, mixed and/or mastered with us; and you don’t see it in this playlist, email us at info@depthcharge.com with a link to the video and we will check it out.

New Single: “The Man of Orange” by Mister Wise

When Donald Trump won the presidential election this past November, one of the few things people found solace in was that it would lead to some seriously great art. Enter rapper-producer Mister Wise’s “The Man of Orange,” a wonderfully biting and potent wrap up of everything that makes its target so infuriating.
If you’ve been following the Alexandria, VA-based artist on Twitter (do it, @iammisterwise), you likely picked up on his disdain of Trump and were likely expecting a musical protest of some sort. It arrives today in the form of “The Man of Orange,” which throws relentless verbal darts at the president-elect over his spewing of hatred and misinformation.
And it does so from a unique angle, because Wise uses a (clearly tongue-in-cheek) first-person perspective on the track. The approach allows the listener to really hear just how callous Trump’s words have been over Wise’s own menacing instrumental. If his work sounds at all familiar, chances are you’ve heard his music as a member of Team Demo—they have worked with the likes of 50 Cent, Sean Price, Illa Ghee, and Kurious, among others.
“The Man of Orange” becomes available this Friday, inauguration day, through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms, but can be streamed right now in its entirety, courtesy of SoundCloud. Hit that play button, and pray for our country.

Depth Charge president, Team Demo founder and super-producer/ engineer, Mister Wise returns with witty commentary on the state of journalism and mass media over a swinging jazzy groove.

New Equipment Upgrades

20160916_155807

Depth Charge Studios is pleased to announce the completion of our 2016 equipment upgrades and re-configuration.  We have placed an Antelope Orion Studio at the heart of the control room for superior clocking and AD/ DA conversion.  We also added the Dangerous Music 2 Bus LT for 16 channels of analog summing on mix-down.  The world class components of the 2 Bus LT combined with Antelope’s stellar conversion provide the full, “three dimensional” sound of large format console rigs with a much smaller footprint.  In addition to the new gear, we also added new furnishings to the control room and lounge and re-arranged some fixtures to add to the comfort and ergonomics of the facility.  If we missed your call or e-mail while we were closed, feel free to contact us again.  We are back to work and ready to make your music shine!

itunes_logo-256When he isn’t producing head knodding hip hop with his crew Team Demo (50 Cent, Sean Price, Obie Trice etc.,) or recording, mixing and mastering for countless artists at Depth Charge Studios, Mister Wise is busy making uniquely creative records as a soloist. His latest single, “If They Don’t Hear Us Now,” fuses rock, reggae and hip hop into a call to arms against the greed and corruption of the rich and powerful.
