Akai Mpc:Dipset Producer A.Raab Muzik

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 28 - 2010

What’s poppin’ readers? A slow start but I’m up at at em… got the equipment on, and a nice sample ready to chop…

Hundreds of athletes get motivated and pumped up before they make an entrance to the field, arena, or court. You’ve seen them in their huddles, or coming into the ring doing all kinds of little rituals. Have you ever noticed how many of the routines are done to music?

I often do the same thing when I’m starting a beat. Yesterday I sat down to make a track with a dirty south feel, and winded up doing a smooth R&B composition. I had every intention on making some rolling snares and boomy 808 drums. When I started the beat at the end of a long day, I just wasn’t in a “mind state” for a hard core hip hop session.

Although I’m prepared now, this morning I felt like cleaning instead of working. I’m sure many of you go through times when you just don’t feel like it. This is when you have get yourself motivated like the athletes. When I need to get in a certain mood, I listen to songs or watch videos that give certain emotional spark. Since I haven’t been doing many hard hitting sample beats this month, I went straight to a few Mpc videos on youtube.

This was posted by about a year ago. It’s the initial video that got Araab his internet buzz. Today was my first time watching, and he’s definitely an mpc power user…

After watching this I am totally in the mood to do some chopping, and I’m now a fan of Araab :)…

I know, I know 🙂 …Dude is sick with the mpc right?…..

Ni Maschine Meets Progressive Hip Hop: Mr.Invisible

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 16 - 2010

Hey Hey what’s good with you?… It’s Friiidaaay! Woo hoo.. but my weekend won’t start until later, I’m still over here working on a few things 🙂

You all know I am officially a “Maschine-Head”, it’s still fairly fresh on the scene, so there aren’t tons of videos out yet. Native Instruments released two yesterday. Both are from “Mr. Invisible” a progressive hip hop trio: Two emcees; Ill-use and Justin Aswell (both are producers), and a DJ; Marley. It’s my first time hearing about them so I’m gonna check them out on myspace in a few.

Mr.Invisible Jamming Live With Maschine

This is real cool… the tag team beat making is my favorite part… They are actually using two Maschine consoles for this shoot.

Black Milk Interview by G Journalism

Posted by Ms.Tris On March - 11 - 2009

Hey all…guess what I did?? REPLACED my own power supply and saved a lot of I will post all the details in a the first DYI pc tutorial sometime very soon. Just in case any one else runs into some of the same problems I’ve had.

Today’s post brings up a few salty feelings for me (nothing against Black Milk or G Journalism). I got a new toy for xmas 08:

It was given to me all for YOU!~ A gift for me to do live tutorials and producer interviews. I had high hopes of starting with some Black Milk footage. He performed at the JDilla Tribute here in Baltimore. It was a great performance!~ Everyone got pictures and talked to him after the show… everyone except yours trully.. 🙁 . Getting used to my new directors role, I left the camera on after recording some of the opening acts.. yay for opening act footage but Booooo to dead battery lol.. by the time Black Milk hit the stage the new toy was out of juice.

I’m on top of things with it a little more. We’ll get to some live beat banging next month…

Check out how things work. I got a twitter about a couple recent Black Milk interviews from Pyramidwest on Twitter. It’s like they read my mind …
So here you go. Now we can all enjoy Black Milk speaking openly about the beats,new happenings, and how he got started. Thanks to Guerrilla Journalism for the scoop! I feel much better about missing an op 🙂
