I met Micah Carli of Popside Recording earlier this year when my band, Far From Eden, spent some time at the studio and had a fantastic experience.  Our time there was such a valuable experience that I wanted to go more in-depth with him and find out all about Popside Recording so I could share it with anyone who will listen!  Recently, I had the chance to sit down with Micah for the first in a four part, in-depth series on this cool, local studio that should be your next recording stop!

13043598_601371983345002_2646597579567833346_nWith the recent Limp Bizkit prank and the fun that ensued, are Dayton’s grime scene and rap scene ready to join forces for an epic Sunday show?  If his music and videos are any indication, we think it could happen next Sunday when NKY/Cinci rapper and Soundlink Studios artist, Mix Fox, hits the stage at Blind Bob’s downtown!
