The summer is upon us and the heat in Chicago is making me miss Haiti. Fortunately I’ll be returning this August with another great engineer in tow. Brian Sulpizio has generously offered to spend a few weeks at MBP studios in Leogane this summer and I couldn’t be more excited. We’ll be working on building out a live room for the studio which will allow MBP to start working with larger groups and live instruments. We will also work with MBP artist T’Ras on his upcoming ¬†album. In order to offset some of the trip’s costs, we’ll be releasing a short ep in the coming weeks. You’ll be able to show some support while purchasing what are shaping up to be some pretty special tracks. More to come!
