My name is Brian "B-Money" Hughes. I am a music producer, specializing in Hip Hop, R&B and Pop. I began my musical journey as a mobile & battle DJ in the mid 90's. I eventually moved to New York in 2000 and began working for Fat Beats Distribution.
While packing, shipping and receiving Hip Hop vinyl by day, I would do my best to infiltrate the top studios around the 5 boroughs by night. After many trials, I was blessed with the opportunity to produce a record for 50 Cent in 2005. "Hustler's Ambition" was the first single for the soundtrack to the film "Get Rich or Die Trying". In 2006, I worked with Jay Z on his comeback album "Kingdom Come", producing the intro track "The Prelude".
Later that year I relocated to Tokyo, Japan where I spent five years immersed in the culture while producing and working with numerous artists from all over the country.
My travels and experiences are tools for anyone who's curious about how the right gear can enhance their sound and take them to the next level as a professional in the music industry.
I'm overjoyed by this new chapter with Sweetwater Sound. They've always been the most professional name in the business and I'm eager to serve the needs of the many musicians, engineers, producers and enthusiasts out there!
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

My experience working in record retail. I know how important music is to people, whether you make it or listen to it. It's what makes us sane at times and enhances the enjoyment of life.

Excellent customer service, excellent product, excellent staff! I love that I can always reach a live person with questions. I always get individual treatment.

Absolutely amazed by the personal service on our order! It is obvious customer satisfaction is a priority. Your company would be the first place we would look for music related items. Great prices, great service and BTW, even the little touch of adding some candy made my kids very pleased! Thank you!
David from Renton, WA
I have to say it's the most personal order I've ever made from the pre-ship phone call, to the email, and finally the candy in the box. Thanks! I don't think I could beat the customer service even in a local shop
