When 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.
2016 marks the 20 year anniversary of Depth Charge Recording’s official founding and incorporation. In that time, we produced, recorded, mixed and/or mastered thousands of projects, manufactured cds for thousands more, released ten 12-inch singles, seven commercially available albums and another dozen or so promotional releases. A few of you have suggested that such an occasion should be celebrated. I agree, but such an undertaking would require the assistance of some committed individuals who know how to put an event together. (I have to stay busy keeping the place running so for this to happen, I need some help!) There are plenty of ways we could mark the occasion but I would love to hear some ideas from our clients and colleagues past and present. Also, if you think you can help make such an event a reality, let’s rap. Hell, there might even be a way for you to make some coin on it. Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
All the Best,
Depth Charge CEO, Zechariah Wise, will be a featured panelist at this year’s “Made in the DMV” Conference. The free event will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 11am-3:30pm at R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center at St Elizabeth’s East, Gateway Pavilion. For more information on the conference and to register click here.
Check out the new EP, “Champagne Water,” from soulful songstress, Nikki Jean. Nikki recorded much of the vocals for the new project with Zechariah Wise at Depth Charge Studios this past September. Wise also mixed three of the tracks as well. We have posted the Soundcloud embed here but if you REALLY want to show your support, visit iTunes for purchase.
Team Demo spent some time at Depth Charge Studios over the past few months putting together “Journey with Nas.” Our in-house production team thought they’d have some fun taking Nas acapellas and remixing them with beats they made sampling the legendary rock band, Journey. Here are the results. Enjoy!
