Blockdown Productions' owner and operator, Block, is a force to be reckoned both regionally and nationally. As the chief engineer for a 3D recording studio, he racked up mega hours of in-studio experience with industry heavyweights, such as The Ying Yang Twins, Mike Jones, Young Jeezy, Shady, Aftermath recording artist Stat Quo, and Paul Wall. He has parlayed that into production credits with G-unit, recording artist Tony Yayo, and former Cash Money recording artist B.G.
Aside from engineering and production work, Block is also a seasoned veteran of the live music scene, touring as a guitar player for such national acts as Aretha Franklin, and Black Arc and Rykodisk recording artist Slavemaster (hardcore metal) and underground Cleveland punk group Pleasure Void, in addition to guitar and bass performances on several local and national commercials.
With versatility encompassing jazz, gospel, R&B, metal, hip hop and rock; a forward-thinking sense of musical nature; and the awesome machine that is Lava Room Recording; Block merits serious consideration as the engineer, producer, and guitarist for your next project if world-class results are your ultimate goal.
Current clients include G unit, Murder Inc., Dreamlife Productions (Sean Mcgee and Al Fatz), NBC, Trina, Kool Keith, Gilla House Records, and Spike TV.
