The Stew focuses on being the first music producer beat battle game show. By creating opportunities for both seasoned sound smiths and new-to-the-game beat makers, the showcase presents a chance to share a stage, network, gain exposure and battle for cash/prizes.
Our developmental music producer platform was established in 2013 by Boston based brands STAE TRU® & Authentic Lifestyle. The showcase places extra emphasis on the creative side of music production through its clever challenges and untraditional beat battle structure.
Our platform welcomes all skill sets and offers chances to those who are willing to step up and be heard. With live beat making, our #OpenKitchen (producer open mic) and special music performances, we aim to change the way beat battles are experienced whether you are in the crowd or behind a drum machine fixed on winning this year’s championship title!
