Art of Sampling I


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!
