The following is special guest post from producer Rob Bates of the Insomniac Music Group. For those that still don’t know, Rob was one of the few finalists of the 2008 Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle and a promising up and coming producer to keep an eye on.

Two weekends ago one of the biggest events of the year took place in Phoenix, AZ: Sha Money XL’s One Stop Shop Producer Conference. The conference, held in Phoenix annually, drew the attention of producers of many different genres from all over the world. Thanks to Sha Money, many of these talented up & coming producers were able to meet with label representatives, A&R’s and other producing legends who have notably left their mark on the history of Hip Hop. And though registration alone was $300, for many the event proved to be well worth their time.
