Producers Bless and K-Mack of Soul Diggaz Productions to Appear as Guest Judges on 106th and Park's Freestyle Fridays

Segment Airdate Scheduled for August 26 at 6:00 PM

Hit-making Production Team Duo Discography Includes Select Tracks for Beyonce, Missy Elliot and Mary J. Blige

New York, NY August 24, 2005 Producer/Brother team Bless and K-Mack of Soul Diggaz Productions will serve as this weeks guest judges on BETs daily video music show 106th and Park, during their Freestyle Friday segment. Known for its gritty competition in pursuit of the hottest unsigned artist, this show will tape on Thursday, August 25 and air the following day, Friday, August 26, at 6:00 PM in New York (check local stations for other airtimes and complete channel listings).

Starting their business in the basement of their parents home in 1995, Soul Diggaz became fully operational after Bless and his brother K-Mack decided to start their own production company. Their hard work and dedication lead to their first significant placement on Pras solo album debut, Ghetto Superstar, entitled For the Love of This. Acquiring other projects, Soul Diggaz Productions began working with Grammy-winning artist Mary J. Blige, Loon, Cheri Dennis and Jimmy Cozier. In 2003, Missy Elliot signed them to a production deal and ever since, they have been one of hip hops most sought after production teams, working on various projects, including the Gap commercial series featuring Madonna and Missy Elliott, Beyonces LOreal commercial as well as the Eve theme song for her self-titled sitcom on UPN.

Having an ear for music at an early age, Bless and K-Mack were influenced by many genres of music, including R&B, Hip-Hop and Rock, citing Run DMC, Erik B and Rakim and New Edition as major influences in the way they listened to music. We would sit and wonder what instrument was being used, and would simply begin to dissect the music, says Bless. Carefully tracing the steps of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, their essential goal was to be identified by sound , and their handcrafted infusion of sound, sometimes using samples and at other times using synthesizers, is described by K-Mack as very street, yet soulful, but all feel-good music with a positive vibe that can inspire many.

Along with their production deal with Missy Elliot, they additionally hold a publishing deal with Warner Chappell. They also have expanded their production company, signing a female group (currently unnamed) on Atlantic Records and Young Kuntry under Universal, amongst a host of other talented artists. Their offices are located in West Orange, NJ. For more information, please visit http://www.souldiggaz.com.
