Workshop: Music Production I

Depot Academy Workshops

Workshop Sign Up

Art of Sampling I

Introduction

Hip-hop had been founded on the instrumental breaks of funk and rock tracks since the ’70s, and pre-sampling records like The Sugar hill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight and West Street Mob’s Break Dance utilized session musicians replaying famous grooves, or turntables cutting up breaks. Now producers could simply sample their favorite parts of songs and cut them up in exciting new ways.

This workshop is designed to introduce the fundamentals of music production with an emphasis on sampling.   If you are a newbie, you will have starting place for what gear (software, drum machines, monitors ect) you should buy and more!

Agenda

  • Record digging & Record Stores (Value)
  • Fundamentals of Music Production
  • Sample Based Production Techniques (MPC vs Maschine)

Having Fun Again

Last year was crazy busy for me and I feel like I sat on alot of music– Shoot PositiveVibesMatter was done around March last year but I kept sitting on because of the blacklivesmatter movement.  I didnt want to seem like I was just riding that # tag although it inspired the name of the project.  I really feel like I am back at a place were I am having fun with the music– The last time I was this happy making music was around the cartoon beat emporium and Dom Larue EPs (2009)

All glory to God my G– Im over on IG creating mini loop videos similar to how did the Cartoon Beat Emporium so swing thoo @conductorwilliams
