Carlos Stephens: Multi-Platinum Music Producer over 100 Million Records Sold

After the No Limit army had risen to enormous heights with over 247 million in record sales in 1989. Master P proceeded to dismiss the ranks of his prolific production team, Beats by the Pound, with the sole exception of Carlos Stephens. Since first collaborating with Master P on his 1996 Ice Cream Man album, and also producing beats for future No Limit soldiers Kane & Abel and Skull Dugrey circa 1996, Stephens quickly found himself a member of the Beats by the Pound production squad, also including Mo B. Dick and KLC. For the next few years, Stephens played a major role in defining the omnipresent No Limit sound on countless albums to the point where his once trademark sound had become a bit trite and generic. The public began to take on his opinion around 1999, and by the beginning of 2000 Master P began seeking out a new production aesthetic, dismissing Mo B. Dick and KLC from their ranks and making Stephens his producer of choice. On high-profile tracks such as “Bout Dat” and “Back up off Me,” Stephens retained his emphasis on hard-hitting drum machine beats — particularly 909-style bass kicks and shuddering, machine gun-like 808 high-hats — but began to integrate inventive synth lines somewhat in the spirit of Swizz Beats or Mannie Fresh in an attempt to re-define the No Limit sound.

Melody Federer: Solo Recording Artist

Recorded albums with Pink and Kelly Roland. Melody Federer was born in Texas- the daughter of a pastor. The family uprooted to St. Louis, where Melody spent most of her childhood, when she was just a girl. At the age of 18, she ran to New York to begin her life as an artist. While pursuing music, she moonlighted as a journalist in Washington D.C., an English teacher in Thailand, and even attempted flight attendant school. But when she heard the sounds of French pianist on a freezing New York winter night, she knew her life would change forever. Melody Federer spent the next three years singing 1930s French jazz in the streets and cafes of Paris. Soon after, she and her troupe of French musicians were asked to play clubs and festivals throughout Europe. It was during these nomadic years that Melody began writing songs in a style all her own, which she rightly named ‘Stride-Pop’. More
