Young Guru

Date TBA


The Wall Street Journal calls Young Guru “the most influential man in hip-hop you’ve never heard of.” Often referred to as “The Sound of New York,” legendary audio engineer, Gimel “Young Guru” Keaton is the man behind the boards for world-renowned artist Jay Z, who would often shout out Guru’s name on the records themselves unprecedented at the time for an engineer. Initially known for his Grammy Award-winning mixes on some of the most successful commercial releases in the history of modern music, Guru’s ability to communicate complex technical terms, not only to artists but students, creatives and business professionals alike, have led to his reputation as the foremost leader bridging the gap between hip-hop and the tech community.
