Los Angeles-based production crew, Team Supreme, has built a reputation for many things since its inception five years ago this April. The group’s ongoing beat cyphers act as the lifeblood of Team Supreme, constantly bringing together its mainstay members as well as special guests and up&comers while encouraging the sense of friendly competition that drives the collective forward. Their hometown shows have become locked within the lore of the Los Angeles beat scene as well, as anywhere from 10-15 individual artists take to the stages at the sold-out Echoplex and El Rey for short, showcase-style sets that give equal shine to all members.
But in addition to Team Supreme’s recognized production skills and capacity to contribute to the culture of Los Angeles, the group has also become a beacon for giving back to the community. Some folks teach music at production schools around the city. Proceeds from Team Supreme shows often end up going to charities like the ACLU or Bridges for Music. And most recently, the guys & gals of Team Supreme have found a new way to pay tribute and connect directly with their creative fan base through an idea they call Pass the Aux.
Earlier this month, we stopped by the Team Supreme show at The Echo in Silverlake to find out what Pass the Aux is all about. Check out the video on it above.
PS — If you happen to be in Hawaii next Friday, March 31st, Mr. Carmack and the rest of the Team Supreme squad will be holding the next Pass the Aux session in Honolulu ahead of their show at The Republik.
