istandard beat camp freshmen producers
Now that the Freshman Class of 2014 has been revealed, it’s time to get familiar with some of the producers that will be sure to make much of the music the Freshman MCs will rhyme over. When it comes to beats, the good folks over at iStandard Producers are our go-to guys. iStandard has partnered with the SAE Institute in Atlanta this year for their Beat Camp, a songwriting and producing conference in ATL intended to help up and coming producers on decisions from branding to marketing to mixing and sampling, all taught by some of the best beatmakers in the game. This year's conference takes place from June 6-8 in Atlanta.

We hit up the company’s founders, J. Hatch and Don Di Napoli, and asked them to weigh in on which producers were making the most noise behind the boards, and which beatmakers were primed to break out into the big time over the next 12 months. Check out the 2014 XXL Freshman Producers class, and peep J. Hatch (JH) and Don (DD)’s commentary on each. Let the beat build.
