At approximately 10:30 pm Eastern Standard Time on 2.16.17, DJ Jazzy Jeff made history. He proceeded to blow the minds of the masses with a project that was written recorded mixed and mastered in a weeks time. The project is entitled ChasinGoosebumps and after you listen to it you will notice the goosebumps begin to rise.
This project is a result of The Playlist Retreat which has become known as a musical Mecca for some of the best producers musicians singers and songwriters in the game. With only one agenda…to create and be great. All Egos were checked at the door and creativity was allowed to shine. None other than the one and only Glenn Lewis blessed each and every track like only he could. In attendance for the session was Eric Roberson, Avery Sunshine, Gene Brown Musinah, Mamouna Yusef, Stro Elliot, Daniel Crawford, Rich Medina, Kaida Tatham, Masego, Teek, James Poyser, Eric Lau, Tall Black Guy, Aaron Draper, Dre Harris, Ant Bell and many more.
DJ Jazzy Jeff live streamed parts of the process on Facebook. He has showed the industry that it doesn’t take months and years to produce art. It can be done independently without the machine.
