When it comes to executing the sound of urban America Sean C and LV are at the top their game. Just ask Jay-Z, Puff Daddy, The Clipse, Ghostface and Fat Joe. All have provided with Midas touch that has made Grind Music one of the most sought after production houses in music.
As a former DJ, Sean C made his mark unto hip-hop as an original member of the legendary X-Executioners and later as an A&R for Loud Records, where he oversaw projects from Wu-Tang, Big Pun and Dead Prez. As an accomplished producer Sean C has contributed to classic recordings such as Jay-Z “Can’t Knock the Hustle” and Big Pun’s “100%”.
A meeting through mutual friends soon led to Sean C connecting with LV, an up and coming DJ who would soon end up DJing for the late Big Pun. “I’d just left college and Sean called me and asked me if I wanted to DJ for Big Pun,” LV recalls. “Are you kidding me? What would you do?” LV, of course, accepted.
Not yet a full-time producer, but ever the music man, LV made the transition to beat making when he inherited a sampler from his soon-to-be partner right as Sean was attempting to sell it. One press of button and a changing of dial led to the Grind Music combo of Sean C & LV.
The duo soon caught the ear of Puff Daddy, who had just signed Grind Music artist, Aasim, to Bad Boy Records. Sean and LV would eventually become the focal point of Puff’s production team. In 2007 the duo was summoned by Jay-Z to provide music for his critically acclaimed, American Gangster Soundtrack. The result was five cuts including the hit single “Roc Boys”.
