Hello, I would to take a moment to introduce you all to the Hot Labs. These are monthly challenges in which we will attempt to push you to be creative via music, art, or any other creative medium that allows for easy digital collaboration.
So how does that work? Example: we post up source material for making a 1:30 audio composition with only the source materials, must not contain any other sounds (you are free to morph and tweak them however you like) and must be within a certain musical key.
New labs will open up at the beginning of the month and close on the final Friday of that month. Winners of the lab will be awarded with a Limited Edition grindin' Hot Labs t-shirt.
The first Hot Lab will open the first Friday of December with source material and challenge details. Interested to see what you all come up with.
Hello everyone, we are excited to announce that we've secured and excellent partnership with a company called Printful, they'll be doing some limited t-shirts, hoodies, and hat embroidery for us. So we put up a shop for you all to grab these while they're making them. We don't tolerate ads or any other silly datamining attempts to monetize grindin'. So we figure its much more respectable to try to secure some goods to sell instead. That way you get some cool stuff, and we can keep the server running(its pretty expensive).
Right now we've got some shirts released in fall themed colors, and a few of the grindin team members asked to have a classic(black/white) t-shirt/hoodie and the original OG orange, so those are there too for a limited time. As always thanks for the continued support and stay grindin'.
Also, yes we ship to all corners of the globe. We planetary baby, LLAP.
What up guys, Mika aka DJ Freakiii @djfreakiii and me welcome you to the first Installment of the Grindin’ Movement. This is the first mixtape that we gathered together from our Grindin’ site and the submissions from [email protected]. I would like to thank everyone who contributed on the Mixtape, and to the guys who didn’t make it, we will release frequently a Grindin Mixtape, so you guys will still have a chance to be on it, and don’t stop what you’re doing, keep making muzika and send your best tunes to [email protected].
Since Mika has been running theneptunes.org with Jean-Luc back in 2002, they also started a The Neptunes Forum with me simply called Grindin’, which is online since 2006. Grindin’ has one of the most talented Forums that has an above average amount of talented people who will blow up and already suceed in their goals with a lot of talented contributors & readers who have risen to become world famous. Without further ado, this is our first Grindin’ Mixtape Vol. 1. Check out the tracklist below and make sure to check out and follow the contributors.

Ten years ago, Grindin' developed as a community of passionate fans that have flourished into a collective of creative minds. Grindin' has an above average amount of talented people who already succeed in their goals with a lot of talented contributors and readers who have risen to become world famous. We are proud to announce that we are celebrating our tenth anniversary this month, and in honor of this anniversary we’ve decided to release some exclusive merchandise from Grindin’.
From this time on, we’re gonna frequently release a Grindin' Talk with a Mixtape gathered together from Grindin’ and the submissions. Grindin' is more than a community, it's a collective of creative minds who intend to inspire the world through their music and creative works. we’re trying to create a platform that curates, connects and nurtures those that are doing cool stuff, as in alt-culture working professionals, aka Grindin’.
From everyone on the grindin' team (Jean-Luc, you too buddy), we'd like to give our sincere appreciation. Thank you.
