“We have included the daily physical fitness to take them through different drills every day from 6AM to 6:30AM to work on their physical strength and concentration. We also have mind games that require a full participation of the participants to work together. This helps the participants to get used to the boot camp style and to be free with each other.” Sylvester
To nurture collaborations in song composition, the artists will be divided into groups of different cultures and backgrounds to sit together, create and share ideas. “We want them to be part development process of the music for them to have sense of ownership. In the second week, a mobile studio will be set up temporarily in one of the rooms to prepare for the recording, with each producer on a different schedule.”
A 10-track audio album dubbed “Hiphop Boot Camp Music Vol. 5” will be available to the public within 3 weeks after the camp. Each participant will get CD copies while the rest will be used for promotion and media purposes.
