Young Guru is one of the dopest and most well-respected engineers and sonic architects in the game. As the go-to-guy for the bulk of Jay-Z's (hyphen or no hyphen) discography, he has truly elevated the artistry within the science of engineering. An accomplished producer and DJ as well (these elements all intersect paths at some junction), Young Guru (@Young_Guru) sits down with world-renowned and Grammy Award-winning engineer Dave Pensado (along with co-host Herb Trawick) for a lengthy and EXTREMELY informative two-part discussion on the art and science of engineering. Touching on the huge collaboration of Hova and Alicia Keys for "Empire State Of Mind", we see how Young Guru contributed greatly to the sonic inner-workings of that great effort.
I admit that I am becoming that sonic nerd that I feared years ago. I'm glad that cats that I can relate to such as Young Guru exists in today's musical climate. You can sense the passion and love he genuinely has for engineering and Hip Hop. This is one of those highly-respected individuals I am looking forward to meeting in 2015.
