Live from the Hatchery, Ep3 - MC Radioactive

Live from the Hatchery

Live from the Hatchery is proud to present MC Radioactive, giving an improvised beatmaking and freestyle performance live in the Corn Room at Prairie Sun. MC Radioactive (or Radio for short) is a hip hop Renaissance man – active as a performing and recording MC & beatboxer, writer, painter, and entrepreneur with his Uploud Creative promotions business. His musical collaborations are many and varied, encompassing work with an eclectic mix of artists and genres, including years spent as a member of Michael Franti & Spearhead. Radio has been particularly influential as a beatboxer, and much of his solo and collaborative work is built around improvised beatboxing, sampling, and looping – a method that, by design, makes each performance unique. It was a lot of fun to capture this process on camera and we hope you enjoy the result!

“Live from the Hatchery” is a new, live-in-the-studio video series produced by producer/engineer Matt Wright, Prairie Sun studio manager Andrew Mastroni, and videographer Dave Rollans. Working in collaboration with Prairie Sun Recording Studios, where we shoot the series, and with the artists who appear in the series, we aim to create high quality videos of compelling performances of music we find exciting.
