“I met Chad Hugo at East West Studios in Hollywood, our first encounter was eating a kale salad. Toss and Turn came up at our main studio in Hollywood Hills, Chad came through in this GhostBusters Jumpsuit, stood outside the door of the studio mumbling a melody went in on the keyboard, did his thing and laced some classic Neptune drums and the rest was history. He is just a genius like that.”
“Chad is a very mathematical guy when it comes to music. He hears things in a way where we just can’t. He hears sounds and melodies in his head that no none does, aside from probably Pharrell. That’s why they are The Neptunes. They are out of this world.”
Indie band ‘Stein Sang’ have been working with Chad Hugo for their new single titled ‘Crush (Let’s Go To The Moon)’ which will be featured on Hunnypot’s newest upcoming single compilation, check out the tune below.

Houston bred a growing scene of homegrown rap artists throughout the mid- to late ‘90s, and Big Moe became one of the first to break out of Texas and go national. Unlike most of the Houston rappers, who tended to offer a hardcore style, Moe offered a much more accessible one.
He both rapped and sang, and his producers crafted smooth, melodic tracks that bounced along at a leisurely pace. His second studio album ‘Purple World’ from Priority Records has been released in 2002 that features also a Chad Hugo production on the tune ‘It’s About To Go Down’, check it out below.

New York City-based band Makuta released their new single titled ‘Straight Outta Love’ produced by Chad Hugo. “‘Straight Outta Love’ is a song that we had the chorus kicking around for a while. We are a live band, and always make it a point to bring in live energy and performance into the recordings. So we record primarily live and track the core of the songs that way, to keep things honest. We finished a version of ‘Straight Outta Love’ before we went on tour this summer, and really road-tested it. We like to do that to see what resonates with folks, what they respond to, etc.
We came off tour with that song refined and fine tuned, with a greater sense of clarity on how to finish the studio version of ‘Straight Outta Love.’ We took a look at the existing recording, and even though we were still excited about it, we felt that it needed a bit more of something. Aleata brought in our good friend, Chad Hugo, to come in and add some new elements that took the song to where it needed to be.” said the group’s frontman Doug Makuta, make sure to cop the tune on iTunes, and check it out below.
