This collaborative project started as a conversation between two like-minded individuals, QSTN and Freddie Joachim. They call it, "STUDY GUIDE: An instrumental look at scholastic development." The concept was simple; both artists possessed a distinct sound with an emphasis on jazz. The end result is a compilation that walks you through one of the most progressive musical art forms. Both artists have been spinning hip hop and jazz plus other genres since the 1990s.
