As part of the 3-day event, longtime Jay Z engineer/mixer Young Guru will issue the keynote address and Roc Nation producer Symbolyc One (S1) will conduct the "How To Make Your Drums Bigger" lecture. There will also be a panel discussion on sampling featuring Diamond D, Spearhead X, M16 Beats, Kato and 808 Blake of SMKA.
