The Four Horsemen are:
Why this name?
Similar to the biblical 4 horsemen... we as they did, ride ready to bring an evolution, the evolution of music. We are choppin heads off the weak, and ridin strong as a team
Do you play live?
Yeah, we record live. In the studio, its a good experinence when you get 4 young aspiring producers together, all with a certain sense of freshness and hunger for sucess
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gives many underground new found artist a chance to get their music heard worldwide. Without it alot of people wouldnt have a medium to express their sound to the world. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to utilize the internet and mp3 format.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes but as a group. Our focus is that we are 4 horsemen riding strong as a team. We each have our own style and swagga but thats what makes a group so powerful. When sumone wants a track and they come to us, they are guranteed to hear a plethora of options as opposed to each one of us individually only having a single approach.
Jay Lip (Jenon Lipsey) has been studying producing since 2004. He began with a demo version of FL Studio. He brought his knowledge to MSU where he met Rob that same year. The two came across an official copy of FL Studio and began recording and producing tracks. From there interest began to increase as they also were joined by C. Smith in 2005. The trio decided to upgrade to a more sophiosticated studio engine, Reason 3.0. Finally Tracey joins the team before its official conception in the summer of 2006. Now the team is heavily using Reason 3.0 along with FL Studio for the sake of simplicity, although new programs are being explored, Cakewalk, Cubase and Pro Tools.
Eachother and alot of other famous producers such as Dr. Dre, Neptunes, Timberland, Pete Rock, Heatmakerz, Dj Premier, The Runners, Three Six Mafia, Scott Storch, Kanye West, Just Blaze, Lil Jon, Daz, 9th Wonder, Alchemist, Swiss Beats, basically any hip-hop track prodcuer because that is the genre in which most of us grew up listening to.

Basically we just wanna thank you for spending your time visitin our page, this started out as a hobby but has turned into a passion so we take this seriously. Soundclikc is a great place for young artists and hopefully we can connect with some ambitious individuals to join the journey to the top. Also let us know how the beats sound, we are unique and have individual flare but we would like to cater to the audience at times, so constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks Again ~ The 4 Horsemen
