I caught up with Lou Diaz of the production duo the Diaz Bros. Ya know Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, etc. Theyâ€™re down with the whole Loud.com movement. Check what he had to say below.
Their involvement with Loud.com:
â€œWith Loud.com weâ€™re with one of the producers that the contestants can download our beats. Actually Cool of Cool & Dre turned us on to the site,â€ Lou said. â€œOur role is to provide them with beats for the contestants to download and they can access us as producers. To be able to do their own material over it and be able to submit it, I think is a really cool concept. For somebody who has talent and isnâ€™t able to access the type of producers that are on the site could be able to put together a crazy joint and who knows.â€
What if an MC catches their eye who doesnâ€™t win the Loud contest:
â€œIf we notice someone on there that jumps out at us itâ€™s almost like a MySpace situation. Thatâ€™s how we found our new artist Casely. Itâ€™ll be a real launching pad and not only that these â€˜realâ€™ producers are on there checking it. You donâ€™t get that opportunity anywhere else.â€
â€œWe signed DJ Lives from Hot 96 down here. Weâ€™re reinventing him. We have a record out with Pit and Flo-Rida. Then we signed an R&B artist named Casely out of Miami. We released a record out here in Miami and it reached number one. Weâ€™re literally, after I get off the phone with you, weâ€™re closing the Epic deal today. Thatâ€™s our next artist since Pit that weâ€™ve branded.â€
