Instructors Background - ERIC SEATS:
Eric’s music experience both singularly and collectively have paid off in chart topping successes like, "Where My Girls At" for 702 in collaboration with Missy Elliot. This song paved the way for a management deal with Blackground Entertainment. He and his team went on to produce songs for the Jet Li and Aaliyah hit movie and soundtrack "Romeo Must Die".
While producing a song for Destiny’s Child member Beyonce Knowles, the opportunity came to also produce "Independent Women (Pt. 2)" for the "Survivor" CD. This was the original version that was recorded for the Drew Barrymore film "Charlie’s Angels".
After the success of the Survivor soundtrack, Aaliyah requested that Eric and his team work on her upcoming project as well. The result was production for half of her record "Aaliyah" which included the number one hit "Rock Da Boat", written by Static.
