Prodezra Beats, an independent artist, broke out big on the scene when he produced the track for “Change” with Y-Love & DeScribe, released on Shemspeed. His “Shofar Callin'” track for Rosh Hashanah, first released in 2010, has garnered a respectable 200,000 hits on YouTube and is well worth revisiting.
