SAE Institute Miami Graduate Wins Second GRAMMYJosť ?Hyde? Cotto continues path to top honors since graduating in 2003 (March 23, 2006)
SAE Institute is pleased to announce that recent graduate Josť ?Hyde Cotto was the recipient of this year's Latin GRAMMY for Best Urban Record for his work on Daddy Yankees latest album, Barrio Fino. Having previously received a Latin GRAMMY, as well as working on other multi-Platinum and award-winning releases, Hyde attributes his success to the training and connections he made while attending SAE's state of the art Miami campus.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Hyde has been involved with music for many years, making his first appearance with his own music on compilations and in the underground mix tape scene. At the age of 21 he decided to take his career to the next level by enrolling in the Recording Technology Program at SAE's Miami campus, and soon began working at The Lab Studios, also in Miami, where he had the opportunity to collaborate on his first GRAMMY-nominated project before even graduating. Hyde has continued to forge a successful career working with artists and producers such as Vico C, Echo, Yaga & Mackie, Ivy Queen, Tego Calderon and the GRAMMY-winning Daddy Yankee.
"I can honestly say that going to SAE Miami was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I feel the training I received at SAE has fast-forwarded my career 10 years into the future," Hyde explains. "Without the skills I developed there, I don't think I would have been able to meet the challenges that I am facing today."
Hyde's challenges as a GRAMMY-winning engineer revolve around his current position of Chief Engineer at The Lab Studios, working with top musical artists, television and movie productions, and pursuing his own artistic career.
