So Apple Juice Kid and Pierce Freelon are traveling the world setting up studios for the communities of various countries. Teaching kids how to set up, maintain, produce, mix and engineer music.
They call it The Beat Making Lab. PBS digital is following them and doing webisodes about this development.
This week, while in Panama, the Beat Making Lab crew proposed a challenge to create a “Trap Beat” using a sample of an accordion, played by a 13 year old kid named Martin.
My friend, DJ Shahzad and I accepted this challenge, and here is what we created the same night we found out about this challenge… Enjoy!!

DURHAM NC – Starting with a Bike and a Dream, Leon and Areli Grodski de Barrera, Business Partners and more importantly Husband and Wife created BIKE COFFEE , a traveling one stop shop all things coffee, tea and spices.
BIKE COFFEE WAS A SUCCESS! The only next logical step was to turn this Bike into a building. Cocoa Cinnamon was born.
Leon and Areli hope to raise $20,000 by April 9th for initial upfit and equipment to open Cocoa Cinnamon — where “we will infuse storied spices and recipes into sipping chocolates, carefully pulled and prepared espresso drinks and teas, and hand made chocolates!”
