Finally, this took me so long to research. It’s hard to believe the detail that goes into making a production look so simple.
Of course, the more you dabble into something, you always come up with something else. In our state-of-the-art facility we film out of Studio B. That’s the Green Screen room, where all kinds of neat things happen. With the use of brilliant technology developed within just a few recent years, the makers of Star Wars with the creation of the ‘quad optical printer,’ have honed this technology
down to a science. Green Screen or “Chroma keying” is a technique used for layering two images together. A color range in the top layer is made transparent, revealing images behind. This is a technique commonly used in video production. When you visit the studio, your performance will take place in front of such stated technology. Your song could be transferred to people, places or things that compliment your performance. As more and more technology becomes available, our technique and design also improves. Just remember, when you come to perform, only wear green if it’s intentional. See Jon-Jon’s really cool
performance http://www.youtube.com/user/TheRAMJAMTVShow check out the “G” on his shirt. Not too bad of a thing. The coolest part about the whole thing is it’s like walking away with your own video. See you in the Studio!

Every now and then we like to highlight one of our Canadian artists. Why is this a big deal? Because Canada got a rap flow that just won’t stop! Coming from the US, growing up on hip-hop and listening to the wiry sound tuning through the radio before
it became the entity it is today. We never thought in our youth that people from another country would be able to achieve a sound as bold and raw as our East Coast/West Coast Battlers. One such rap artist in whom I am referring is Sese (pronounced Se – zee).
When we first started our venue about a year ago, we ran into Sese on a Live Twitter stream getting there and then feedback from a popular radio station that had just featured his latest music. As he held on the phone, the audience called in with their
opinions on whether his music was a Hit or Miss. The response was overwhelming Sese scored another notch in making
his imprint on the industry as a come-up artist. He hasn’t stopped; his music just gets more and more intense and fearless as he challenges his craft from well beyond basic to creative culture leaving something new behind. His latest video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwatSt6cKW4 that we’ve featured on RAM Jam shows the comedic genius side of this Ontario bred rapper. Man, I thought Grape Juice was something. http://yfrwn.tumblr.com.
At the top of the feed you probably noticed a Facebook Poll. I put this out there because I did it! I survived one month without
the FB. In return I created this blog among a boatload of other stuff, including better focus. I encouraging anyone whom by habit is caught up in the Facebook world to either enjoy a brief hiatus or at least cutback daily time spent reading feeds, responding or not. Just ask yourself, how much time am I spending on Facebook? I only pick on Facebook because it takes more time. The hardest part was the first three days, then the last day. I absolutely could not wait to log back on, oh and how I missed everybody! But I now feel like I have a better perspective.
Be sure to catch the show next week as we tour further overseas to see how they doing rap. Fierce females take on the battleground as dancehall classics emerge. We see a softer side of Donaeo and dance Bollywood style. Can’t wait to see ya! Until then,
