Posted by Ms.Tris On August - 28 - 2012

I am excited to introduce to you, my musical brother Brandon Lackey. I remember meeting “Bealack” at a local function, then visiting his studio. We worked on a few things and I was very impressed by his knowledge of the mix. I’ve worked closely with several engineers, and he is definitely one who loves the world of mixing. Brandon gave me some incredible mixing secrets back then, all of which helped me get better. I can also say that he got the ball rolling on my end to learn mixing. From frequencies, mic placements and such, to the best plug-ins; Brandon’s knowledge of sonic unity can be heard on various projects. Brandon is one half of the mega mixing duo who established the label “Mania Music Group”. He and partner Dwayne Lawson have been making a name for themselves as both incredible producers and top engineers.

Brandon has started a weekly blog dedicated to perfecting sound. His style of writing exhibits strong professionalism, yet it is easy to comprehend the techniques. What I like most is Brandon’s experience with multiple music genres, and his many years of expertise. The awesome “Audible Mention” is already bookmarked, and I’ve subscribed. Be sure to do the same and visit often. The knowledge Brandon will share, money cannot buy. He’s gifting his tips and literally award winning secrets! Voted Best Label 2009, and Best Beatmakers 2010 by “ City Paper” which states:

“…it’s the in-house producers Headphonemusik and BeaLack, with their endless bag of musical tricks that keep pushing the MCs in new directions and making Mania’s constant musical growth worth charting with every new release.”

I love the “endless bag of musical tricks” addition …Below is the Mania Music Group’s Bandcamp Player where you can hear their works:

I will be following up this intro with a featured and guest post by Audible Mention …you’re going to love it!..stay tuned

Happy Mixing To All!~

Posted by Ms.Tris On March - 26 - 2010

“Turn It Up” Stress Dollaz produced by Ms.Tris Beats

Hey Hey all .. this is how I like to network. Stress was one of the 1st artist I posted about: feature-artist-stress. His manager reached out to me when I was a new blogger. It took us a while due to my schedule. I finally got Stress some beats, now we are rolling with some heat!
This has a super catchy hook…
Right click to download:

Other than Baltimore artist, I haven’t posted alot of music I produced on the site yet. Some projects I work on are complete albums. Since it’s a joint effort, I respect when the artist wants me to blast material or not. To all artist that I’ve done songs with, just let me know what you want me to post.

I’ve made a few more connections with new artist here, know that we will be moving on our songs soon. ( Purp Reynolds out of cali is next)

I will be adding much more now that everyone seems to be doing mixtapes. It’s the perfect time for music so you can play it your vehicles during nice weather 🙂

Happy Beat Making To All

Bilal The Adventurer B-Bangin!!

Posted by Ms.Tris On November - 24 - 2008

I got up with my “mans -n- nem” (a few close friends 🙂 ) yesterday, and boy am I really feeling music and life right about now. I’ve been on this crate digging kick for a little while, almost a month to be exact. You ever get that feeling that you just wanna make some good ol’ classic boom bap hip hop?

There have been a few things fueling this return to the classics. Gee Wiz and the Speaker Boxin Beat Battle, Shaka Pitts Spitters Club, hooking up with artist who only do lyrical material…. all that and more. The one meeting that has just put the fire to the match comes with a story….


I met Bilal about 3 years ago at a battle. The host allowed him to get up on stage and make some announcements. He was wearing work attire and said he’d come to the show straight from the office. He told the Baltimore hip hop community that he had big plans for us, and for all to contact him for more details.

The details weren’t hard to find. In a blink of an eye, he was all over the city in his “Crush Force T.V” Truck. Bilal would be at every show, making power moves, and giving all local artist national shine. I was impressed by his grind. It seemed he was a “Force” that we needed to be involved in the B-more hip hop movement.

Full of surprises, I was watching a local television station and up pops Bilal doing interviews… lol
I thought wow this guy is really making some power moves. Every time he saw me he’d say ” I need some beats for the show”. I don’t know why I took so long, but we finally had a brief meeting at his office. I was very busy with music, and he was busy with his show. Time passed and we didn’t keep in touch :-(… matter of fact I stopped seeing Bilal as much at events. Later on folks were asking ” Where’s Bilal?”….. BILAL went missing…. was the word on the streets…….

Not …..
Two weeks ago, I was visiting StreetLegal Ent Studios and in walks Bilal! I was shocked….. Here is the kicker… since he’s been mysteriously missing, Bilal has recorded 4 albums, coached little league football, hosted an **underwater** show for children, been in the studio with Floetry, been to Africa, teaching classes,….. the list goes on….WOW again!

Talk about an inspiration. Bilal is doing positive hip hop, and helping children as much as he can. It’s like he’s found his calling, motivating our future leaders, cultivating a healthy mind state in our youth.
He has been traveling filling his mind and camera with wonderful things abroad. This allows Bilal to bring first hand cultural experiences to his classes. His next stop is China and you can help send Bilal for study. Please visit his site to sponsor or make donations. Every bit helps, and this is surely a worthy cause:

Help Bilal Study In China

I am excited to say, Bilal and I will be doing some music very soon. I ‘ll be sure to keep you posted. Until then, have a look at Bilal at work, and be inspired!~ I sure am..

Keybe Writes: Screen Test.. Those Who Have Ears Let Them Hear

Posted by Ms.Tris On November - 12 - 2008

Hey all, what’ been up with you? I hope all is well and you are preparing for 2009. I’ve signed on for my second project which is based upon poetry. I am excited because the first one ” Screen Test… Those Who Have Ears Let Them Hear” by Keybe Writes, is coming swiftly to a complete wrap. We have been getting rave reviews, although it’s really been hush hush since we started. This is a mini intro, and you will hear a lot more from Keybe very soon, including full bio, song samples, and words of inspiration. After hearing a test copy of “Screen Test”, spoken word artist “CoCoa” from L.A via Colorado has hired me for her cd. Yaay!

I missed a few days of posting and always like to keep you filled in. Over the past weekend we started drafting the artwork for the Cd, and they go to duplication on Friday. I learned that producers must share a complete vision with the artist. Keep in mind that you may have a hand in giving ideas for artwork on your projects as well as music. Here is a sneak preview of our rough first draft for cover design:

Keybe Writes “Screen Test” is poetry and prose works over Hip Hop beats. We started while I was working on the set of “The Wire”. I learned a lot from working with Keybe. Not only were her work ethics superb, her writings touched my soul and inspired me. She had a vision and came well prepared. This made it a little easier for me being “Screen Test” is the first project I’ve done with more neo-soul/ R&B type hip hop. This is my third project as sole producer, and Keybe’s introduction to the world.

I’d like to remind you as I start production for the next, there are many options for your beats. Think lyrics, poems, T.V., and soundtracks. Always keep an open mind when creating your masterpiece!~ There are many option for your beats.

Happy Beat Making To All
Pz Til LAter…

Baltimore Female Lyricist : Mzery Now On Cd Baby

Posted by Ms.Tris On October - 15 - 2008

Baltimore Hip Hop is alive and thriving, yet there are very few female artist on the scene. I met Mzery about three or four years ago at Brown Sugar Mondays. I remember her performing over a few classic boom bap beats that made your head nod.
Her delivery reminds me of the female pioneers like Queen Latifah and Mc Lyte. Keeping her subjects more on the conscious side, her cd may be a breath of fresh air for those longing for true well written hip hop in the days of money,swagger, and anything goes.
Her latest live shows include a still developing all female band. She’s looking for a keyboard player, if there are any females in the Md Va De area that play the keys hit Mzery up for a gig.

“Herstory 101″ is the name of her latest cd. Check out Mzery’s ” Buddha Stance”
produced by your host: MsTris Beats
