Jhagroo Way “Lytes Effect”

I had the opportunity to sit down with one of the most multi-talented and prolific engineers and mind in music. Ahh and yes she’s a female! I’ve known her for several years and let me run through a list of her accomplishments. She holds a masters degree in Physics, she has engineered for Amy Winehouse, Jay Z on The Bam Project along with Guru (Jay Z’s personal engineer), she was apart of the duo that managed Tanto Blacks, she’s a workaholic who constantly stays familiar with the latest software’s and gadgets, and every tech invention happening out of Silicon Valley.

Her name is Tandra Jhagroo, she’s a black woman who is competing, surviving and growing in a male dominated industry. She also sits on the board of GURLES which is a charity based around empowering and teaching women skills to help better themselves in the working world, she focuses on entertainment and is driven by curiosity.

This interview was sparked by a convo we had, I told her I was going to put her under pressure and here is her dropping some bombs!!! ” Vivian I’m a woman I live and work under pressure”. Then she explained what it feels like to be a female in a male dominated industry and being constantly told to turn left, turn right, turn down the compression or make me sound like him”.
“No, I’ve never had any of those experiences. So it made me start to ask, how did you survive? What did you use as motivation and drive?”

First, she explained it was about passion, She’s in love with music and engineering. She gets excited to mix a new project. She gets excited when frequencies need adjusting. She was also a club Dj in Canada, so having a first-hand feel of seeing how the crowd reacts to music and the hits.

Now fifteen years later she’s sitting on a couple of boards, also a full member of The Recording Academy (engineer & productions). She sits on the board of GURLES also on the board of Push A Yute Inc. So her point is ” You can work hard, you can just focus and be open to growth.” From voicing Charlie Black, Munga, Gyptian, Daville, VoiceMail, Putting together the Lisa Hyper “Boss Up” project with my label mates Vivian & Jamal. “It shows that once you want to be the best you just have to work and what you call luck is more about opportunities created, the outcome from each project and voicing leads to the next project you grow,” states Tandra
“Managing Tanto Blacks aka Real Rich also taught more about myself and what I can or can’t tolerate. So it showed me when to put my foot down and when to ease up.” Tandra also states.
