Chad Hugo and the Moog Slim Phatty

Chad Hugo, along with co-producer Pharrell Williams, are easily considered among the most successful producers of all time and especially within the last few decades. Blending their own musical influences with eastern sounds and a knack for pop sensibility, Hugo along with Williams have been instrumental in crafting such mega hits as “I’m a Slave 4 U” (Britney Spears), “Hot in Herre” (Nelly), and “U Don’t Have to Call” (Usher). While most of you may be familiar with Chad Hugo as one half of super producers The Neptunes and member of the group N.E.R.D., others of you may be familiar with his current DJ duo called Missile Command which includes Daniel Biltmore. What you may not know yet about Chad Hugo is that he was asked by Moog to make sounds for their new all white re-issued Slim Phatty analog synthesizers.
