The R.A.P. Soundstage - July 2015

After four months of RAP Awards and the Love for an Orphan contest, we’re back to our regular format on the Soundstage. We get started with this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a nicely done promo from Linda Manganye at Power FM in Johannesburg! Next up is a killer montage of work from interviewee Dave Savage and the crew at the Creative Services Group in Atlanta. The audio features the CSG’s three Mercury Award winners at the front. Tracks 3 & 4 are audio from Dave Foxx mentioned is this month’s Production 212 class. We get some great commercials on tracks 5-18. Tracks 7 and 8 are from broadcast students at SAIT and Fanshawe College. (On track 8, Abe Kelledjian is the professor submitting the spot for writer Dustin Hopfner, who is also the rapper, and producer Andrea Krasowski.) Track 19 is a promo, also from a student who is interning at CJAY with Gary McClenaghan, winner of this year’s Best Imaging trophy in the RAP Awards. Sounds like he’s got the right mentor! And we get a sweet promo from Mr. McClenaghan on the next track.

We wrap it up this month with a station launch from Evan Surminski on track 21 and some nicely done work from Ray Camphu on track 22 -- three music promos that are branded intros as well. Nice idea!
