Established in 2009 as Warehouse 508, Albuquerque's Downtown Youth Art and Entertainment Center allows for youth immersion in the Creative Arts. Warehouse 508 is a venue for creativity, a lab, an incubator of possibilities, and a safe, structured environment where young people have the opportunity to explore the world through the arts. Warehouse 508 is operated by New Mexico Xtreme Sports Association (NMX); together we provide urban arts and extreme sports programs for young people ages 13-20. Our mission is to offer youth a safe space for creative expression. We work for that moment when a young person is inspired by his or her personal potential.

Beats Production Is an inside look at making beats and the art of production. We dive in to the beginning steps and essential things needed to make a complete beat from scratch. The art of production is about the utilization of sound, space and flow and how to use these things to create solid work. Each class is designed to show students how to make beats , use the programs , manipulate sound and work flow with other creatives and by yourself. I also teach ways to turn your beats into something you can make a living off of as well as avenues on how to get your beats heard by the world and others. The over all goal of this course is to teach you how to produce artists and make beats.
