Future plans/projects

I have a production company named "Dubvibe Productions Inc." and I work with dance music specializing in Reggae and hip-hop. My aim is to bring artists from around the globe to my studio here in Vancouver Canada so that I may be able to produce CD's for them, especially those who are for one reason or another excluded from the mainstream.
