The team behind Beats Love Alcohol Party (BLAP)
Contact blap.events@gmail.com to register or for more info!!

Most beat battles and producer showcases are tailored to industry professionals. Those who attend usually critique a producer on technical aspects of producing, but how would a general party crowd respond?

B.L.A.P. (Beats Love Alcohol Party) was created to answer that question. Take a group of producers - a couple of known veterans and a few undiscovered talents, put them in front of a party and tell them to play their beats - it's that simple. What separates B.L.A.P. from similar events is the interaction between the average music fan and the taste makers, as well as it's casual nature. Instead of the producers being judged by a panel of their peers, they are attempting to keep the crowd rocking.

There is no stage and patrons are encouraged to dance. For the party goer unaware of the scene it becomes a new experience. For the industry pro, the laid back atmosphere provides a more comfortable arena to network & find their next hit producer. Created in September of 2009 by !llmind, multi-platinum producer for artists like 50 Cent, Ludacris, Dr Dre & more, who knows who will show up for this event series. Soon enough, everyone will know at B.L.A.P.

Glad to be back again with another BLAPISODE! Tonight we have Benny Reiner stopping in! Check his bio below and tune in for the interview along with BLAP or Crap
Benny Reiner, producer/songwriter/drummer, is a 23 year­old native of Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Full scholarship in hand, Reiner decided to further his education at the University of Memphis, majoring in Jazz and Studio Performance. He began to establish his name in the historic Memphis music scene as a drummer, composer, producer and educator. While in Memphis he produced and played for the Memphis Grizzlies drumline, Grizzline, The University of Memphis athletic program, and multiple local artists. Reiner spent about three years in Memphis and then decided to relocate to Nashville, Tennessee. In the short time he spent living in Nashville, he had the opportunity to play with many of Nashville’s greats such as Jeff Coffin, Pat Bergeson, Don Aliquo, Pat Coil, Rich Eckhardt, Evan Brewer, and many more. He packed his bags in Nashville and moved to New York City to further his career as a producer and performer.
Since moving to New York he had his first Billboard top ten record with Japanese R&B star, AI. Benny has spent time on the road and/or in the studio with artists like Megan & Liz, Drake Bell, The Band Perry, One Arm Train, Memphis High, and more.



Ways to Tune In 

The world of music production is one of the fastest growing in the industry. Still, there are very few outlets providing information on how to achieve a lucrative career as a producer. With 13 + years experience, !llmind (Produced records for Kanye West, 50 Cent, Eminem, Common, 2 Chainz, Scarface, Redman and Many More) has assembled a team to help fill that void. How do I get record placements? What is my favorite producer using in the studio? What is publishing and why is it important? What schools cater best to becoming a producer?

The life blood of the music industry is based on knowing the right people. BLAP On The Radio serves to not only answer those questions, but also to provide valuable insight from some of today’s most important power players (Artist Manager, Lawyers, Major Label A&R’s, Beat Brokers, and more)

Music producers rarely get the recognition they deserve. We’re here to analyze the various beat making techniques of some of our favorite producers. From J Dilla’s drum swing, to J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League’s lush musical arrangements, we plan to cover it all. Gear talk, cool production techniques, engineering tips, and bangin’ beats are some of the things you can look forward to with BLAP On The Radio.
