I want to start off this recap post by first saying a big "Thank You" to owners of Complex 2010 Studios Cayex Illah and Merk Murphy for having me out to cover their monthly networking event, "The Session". For those who do not know, "The Session" is a monthly event that is held at Complex Studios where artists are able to have a track of their choosing played for the many different artists, producers, and media outlets in attendance as well as get personal feedback from industry professional and host, Merk Murphy.
The thing about this event that makes it so unique is the atmosphere. Everyone I met be it artists or media outlets were all beyond humble and there to learn. The experience and feeling of sitting there in this studio where Grammy nominated hits have been recorded with everyone there looking to learn, grow, and progress is truly something special. Artists from all over came out to Complex for "The Session". Through out the event I met and spoke with artists who had come from areas of Michigan, Wisconsin, Atlanta, and Memphis as well as several talented Chicago emcees. I also met several talented media outlets and producers.
Some of the artists we got to hear from were from specifically were rising stars Eyezik, KT Rasta, and Shaun Flow. All of who came prepared with some dope material. Not to mention we got to hear from the CMG affiliated artist Richlord who recently released a tape. All together this was an experience that cannot be replicated and the hard work Merk and his team at Complex put into this event is something that I would recommend any artist take advantage of by making sure to attend these monthly sessions. Remember you never know who you may meet or what opportunities may be extended to you if you don't prioritize networking and seizing opportunities such as events like this.
Once again I would like to thank Merk and Complex Studios for having me out. As well as thank everyone I met at The Session for the great experience. If you have not done so yet make sure to check out the studio online here, www.Complex2010.com. I look forward to meeting new artists and hearing new music at the next event!
