Founded in 2006 by Orlando Sanchez, adotstate has come a long way from its beginnings in 3424 West Greenfield ave Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When Orlando Sanchez first started out, his passion for molding and building up local new and upcoming artists to a bigger platform drove them to start their own business.
I have been mixing and working in the recording studio since I can remember. My mother had a turntable that I used to play Tina Turner’s single “What’s Love Got to do with it”, when I was young.
To me, it was my first studio, I was about 4 yrs old. We later moved to our new home, and from there I remember attended evening Bible study sessions where my Uncle lead the Band.
Mom was sitting on the couch with a guitar as I walk into the house after a long day as a 3rd grader. She tells me in my ear to pay attention to the beat the man is playing so I can show her how to do it.
He started with the D major, then A major and later elevated to a G Major, beginner music theory. I put my bookbag down and sat down on the couch.
At first, I wasn’t interested as I wanted to play Nintendo and it was a honky-tonk guitar to me.
Then came my cousins, Ricky, and Franky with their 1980s hairstyles and rock guitars.
When I was 13 I met my Daughters, Mother.
A couple of weeks into my first place I began working on my first CD Project using Steinberg Cubase VST, a Compaq Presario PC running off a Pentium Celeron processor, a Behringer Interface and a Samson co 1 condenser microphone.
