Production Group Workshop
The Playground: Production Group is designed to bring Producers and artist together to work on selected projects. Inspired by LMMS open source software Sharing platform; which is used by Black Ceazar to make music in recent years.
“I have been using LMMS off and on since 2007; the program is an excellent design and has awell supporting community. I recently decided to get back into making tracks; due to some projects I wanted to have some music behind. To get back in the swing of things I decided to do some tutorials; while doing the tutorials and checking out the sharing platform. I decided to come up with “The Playground Production Group” . I started created production projects around some of my work such as the comic book, magazine and art collective. I also started selecting some people from the Lmms community to invite to be apart of “The Playground Production Group”. And see if they wanted to be apart of the community projects their work inspired. I recently put some of my tacks and other producers track who I like together for some Ideas for some compilations/mixtapes. I am currently working on three project I would like to share and see if people are willing to particpate.”

All Producers who are willing to particpate will be fully credit and if any financial gain comes out of it all parties would be fully compensated for their work.
