Pensado’s Place is the brainchild of platinum mixing engineer Dave Pensado and his manager, Herb Trawick. Dave has mixed chart-toppers for some of the biggest names in the music business, from The Black Eyed Peas to Justin Timberlake. The show features the Grammy award winning mix engineer discussing various facets of sound art production with noted industry figures. The show has been on for almost two years and has over 90 episodes. In the 94th episode, Mr. Pensado interviews singer/songwriter/producer Raphael Saadiq. Even if you are not a recording engineer you will still find tons of valuable info in this documentary. So without further ado, sit back, enjoy and learn!

In many ways, this interview is where the idea of Music Biz Wiz Kids began. Several years ago,I had the fortunate opportunity of meeting Drumma Boy’s publicist and with the help of my close ally, Alex White, and videographer/editor Alex Wiltz- created this interview. The interview was released on my old blog rockwellbeats.worpdress.com. Drumma Boy drums some knowledge on his early days.Anticipate more interviews like this to come in the future.
