Snoop Dogg’s producer, Terrace Martin, signs with Warner Bros. Records

snoop5.jpgLongtime Snoop Dogg producer, Terrace Martin, has signed a label and production deal with Warner Bros. Records for his Jakai Music Group imprint. Martin produced three songs on Snoop’s Welcome To Tha Church: Da Album, as well as “Gangbangin’ 101” off Tha Blue Carpet Treatment. With his new deal, Warner Bros. will market, promote and distribute artists Martin signs to his company. In addition, Martin will also produce for Warner Bros. artists such as Talib Kweli. “Terrace is a throwback to a pure form of musician — he believes in crafting real music and conceptual songs,” Warner Bros. A&R, Tick says. “When Craig Aaronson, Naim Ali and I banded together to sign Terrace Martin, we all knew we had the total package of artist/producer/entrepreneur.” In addition to his work with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, 50 Cent and Talib Kweli, Martin is also a jazz saxophonist who has played with Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock. Martin describes his style as, “sounds that would happen if [DJ] Hi-Tek was to have lunch with the Beatles, then go play with Michael Jackson’s monkeys, then go kick it with Miles Davis,” he says. “It’s fun, feel-good music.”
