So MTV has this dope new show called "Track Stars," which we like because it is about producers and we are nerds who get into "processes" of how "beats" are "made." And, as it happens, most producers are also nerds, huge gigantic nerds who like to spend their free time messing around with boards and mixers and whatever whatever. SIDEBAR: Hip-hop producers are the NERDIEST of all the producers, don't let Scott Storch's reflector sunglasses fool you. So for FADER 55 (hitting stands... NOW), contributor Brendan Frederick delved deep into the lives of NYC hitmakers Ryan Leslie and Sean C & LV, and unraveled the real deal of their hottest beat constructions in a decidedly awesome way. DOUBLE SIDEBAR: Ryan Leslie is totally in this episode of "Track Stars"! SYNCHRONICITY ISN'T JUST AN ALBUM BY THE POLICE!
