Slip-N-Slide Records Unveils New 4 Star Recording Studio
Miami-based label Slip-N-Slide Records is launching the New Year with a new high-tech facility, 4 Star Recording Studio.
The South Beach-based studio, nicknamed Home of the Hits, will serve as the location for pre-production and post-production of music from established singers, songwriters and producers.
Although the Home of the Hits has been used over the years to create classic Slip-N-Slide hits, this marks the first time the studio will be used by those in the music industry to record with the labels producers and engineers.
The unveiling of the 4 Star Recording Studio comes after a successful year filled with hit singles and albums from veteran Slip-N-Slide rap stars, Plies, Trina and Rick Ross.
Plies current single, the Chris J-featured Put It On Ya, is the rappers fourth consecutive top 10 Billboard R&B and Hip-Hop chart song.
A video for Plies newest single, Want It, Need It featuring Ashanti, is scheduled to air Feb. 5 on BET Access Granted.
Trina is currently working on her fifth solo album, which is due in stores this spring.
Ross, who was named one of the Top 10 MCs in 2008 by MTV, is also in studio as he crafts his third musical opus, Deeper Than Rap.
The forthcoming release is the follow-up to the entertainers RIAA gold-certified sophomore album Trilla.
Upcoming offerings from Ross, Trina and Plies are not the only projects on deck from Slip-N-Slide.
The label, which celebrated its 15th anniversary in December, recently expanded its roster of artists by signing actress Drew Sidora, dancehall sensation Atiba and Georgia-based rapper/ producer Swazy Baby.
Best known for his hit single If I Had One Wish as well as his work on producer Rodney Jerkins Versatility album, Atiba is building a buzz for his debut album with his latest single Hey Lady.
Swazy Baby and Sidora are expected to release their debut albums in the Fall.
Other Slip-N-Slide debut releases include R&B vocalist Shonies Passionate Pieces of Me, which is slated to be released this spring and pop singer Qwotes Qwote Un Qwote which will arrive in stores this summer, along with Yard Soul, the forthcoming album from soul crooner Camar.
