"producer roll call: meet & greet."


  

          

this board needs unity (and an enema, among other things). the influx of new posters is crazy, so maybe this can be a little something to bring the board together. don't gotta be on no kumbaya stuff, but i think we know our own less than any other board on this site.

so holla!

who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here):

where you rep:

what type of music you make:

what you use:

how long you been doin it:

what you wanna do with it:

inspiration:

if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you all they know, who would it be?

In response to Reply # 25


  

          

I used to live in Big Rapids (Ferris State University) Actually I think the name makes sense. Dirt because it's in the middle of nowhere, and Trap because it took me about a year to save up enough money to get out of there.

who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here): Producer/writer/dj/engineer Rhythm Jones

where you rep: Atlanta, GA

what type of music you make: Hiphop, house, soul, r&b (also been mixing and mastering others stuff recently..gotten pretty good, too!)

what you use: Ableton Live, Reason, a SLEW of plugins, korg microkontrol, korg padkontrol, occasionally nuendo, protools, mpc

how long you been doin it: About 7 years now

what you wanna do with it: Make a living...looking to do some more scores and stuff in addition to selling tracks to artists. Actually, I got a couple MAJOR goals for the year

inspiration: All the old school classics - you know, Pete Rock, Dilla, ONP, Bomb Squad, Leon ware, 4Hero, Spacek, blah, blah, blah

if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you all they know, who would it be?

These days? Probably Smokey Robinson. Buddy could write a HELL of a song. In a week or two, it'll prolly be somebody different

no real dreams of making a career out of it, although i'm still pretty young. i'm just starting to sell my beats to local artists, we'll see where that goes. i also released a cd with me and my friends rapping over my beats in june, made about 400 cds and sold out within a few days (sold them for $5 at school and around town)

everything.. but as far as musical inspirations go: my dad, my grandpop, DJ Premier, Dr Dre, RZA, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Timbaland, Havoc from Mobb Deep, Large Professor, The Neptunes, many other hip hop producers, Biggie, Big Pun, Nas, Jay-Z, Beanie, AZ, ScarFace, Sublime, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Doors, James Brown, alot of old jazz, soul, and basically any sound that I've ever heard..

>if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a

Either Premo, Just Blaze, or Kanye if I was picking a producer to teach me some things.. but I'd probably pick Jay-Z outta everbody so that he can teach me how to take over the industry like he did haha..

King Tubby. He is the original and best, what he did sonically with '70s Reggae is still unmatched. He had the perfect balance between imagination and technology. His spirit is so strong, it's what makes his music unique, u can FEEL his presence even when he was working for other artists.

Props on the music fam, might as well say it here seeing as I can't msg u on ya slick-ass Myspace page. Like the matrix on there, or maybe minority report. lol

Great post btw man.

But anyway back to furry Kangols, Jamaican wallabies.

Pino Paladino??? I dunno, the more I perform, the more I wish I could do more than just cue, scratch and add the occasional vocal. I should learn the bass.....well.

2 years? That's nothing. You need to get a few more years at this. You're still a newborn sucking on music's nipple.

who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here):downpat , shout out to Ryan Officer and his crew in Chicago, and all F5 records affiliates from the Carbondale days.

where you rep: Philly, Chicago

what type of music you make:all over the board...i've been involved in punk, classical, jazz, hiphop, and r&b/soul projects.

what you use:a few guitars and basses, various pedals old and new, mac, protools 6.4(7 soon), keystation 49e, and a few soft synth apps

how long you been doin it:i learned my first instrument at age 8, but i've only been making beats for about two years

what you wanna do with it: make a living, work with artists who actually look at it as ART!

inspiration:any kind of music that has a spark of something you can't put your finger on.

if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you all they know, who would it be?: tough question. Probably George Martin, who produced several beatles records, and helped expand the sonic possibilities of studio production.

In the immortal words of Vince Young, Awwstin Texas, baby!

>what type of music you make:

Yeesh. Hip hop and R&B, mostly using samples, and all very soul-influenced. I'm a huge dirty south fan, and currently trying to take some different production approaches to that style of music.

>what you use:
>

Na'an fancy. FL Studio (soon to be exchanged for cubase), Soundforge, a turntable, various softsynths, and a midi controller. I hope to add some hardware synths soon.

>how long you been doin it:

4+ years.

>what you wanna do with it:
>

I aspire to a career in the music industry, and I'm hopeful that production will take me there, but I'd be happy working primarily in some other facet of the biz, if I still got to make beats on the side.

>inspiration:
>

Those Anita Baker and Sade records mom played while she cleaned the house when I was 3 years old. Disco, fusion, house, ambient, lounge. Kurtis Blow, Lil Jon and everything in between.

As far as specific producers who've had an effect on me, I think my most direct influences are Organized Noise and Fat Jon (of Five Deez). But the list of ppl I listen to and try to incorporate elements of is long as hell, and includes ppl who make all kinds of hip hop and R&B, as well as others doing completely different things....Daniel Lanois comes immediately to mind.

>if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a

>
>

I'm gonna pick Leon Huff, the producer behind a lot of the Philadelphia Soul records. I'd love to have an insight into what made the music I sample sound the way it did, so I could incorporate some of those ideas into my own.

wasup, i go by the name of redbaron producing for a group called Verbatum under the division of Joint Cap Productions representing Brooklyn and Long Island

I've been making beats for several years....I use a MPC 2000xl and an Ipod. I also use an old casio keyboard, a planet phatt sound module, an acoustic guitar and some conga drums and a turntable.

My inspiration of late has been from The Stylistics

Plan on getting the first album done by the end of summer 07.

If I could learn under one producer it would be the RZa

Everything's cool, I'm not quite at where I wanna be with the music yet but i hear it heading in the right direction. I like droppin by Makethemusic from time to time and when i have the time throwin my 2 cents in a beat contest.

Peace.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

>who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here):<
I record and produce music under the name Crut.

>where you rep:<
Pacific Northwest and Hawai'i

>what type of music you make:<
Mostly sample-based production, be it hip-hop, electronica, or "experimental". I like being able to manipulate pre-recorded sounds to make new sounds, whether it's familiar or something unrelated to the original. I would like to get into non-sample recordings. I've dabbled with it on my own private recordings, but nothing serious yet.

>what you use:<
Main program of choice is Cool Edit, will upgrade to the latest Adobe Audition when I can afford it. I also use Reason. The lack of goodies has made me work with what I have, although right now I'm in serious need of an upgrade.

>how long you been doin it:<
As Crut, I've been making music for 14 years. As far as dabbling in making my own tapes, pause-tape loops and whatnot, I've been doing that for 26 years. All of those things I did as a kid, I would apply that in the digital realm.

>what you wanna do with it:<
As an artist, I'd like to be able to work and keep working on a serious level. Same applies for whom I produce. I'd like to get more work, but not being in a large city doesn't help, and at times it's difficult when you have 5000 other people wanting some recognition too.

So, to have my work get recognized, and with that to continue doing that for as long as I can. To collaborate with people and not only be heard, but to be able to fulfill someone else's vision.

I would like to be like Rick Rubin and be able to work with rock and pop artists, as well as with hip-hop. He can turn around and record some incredible dope shit, then turn around and produce Justin Timberlake and Dixie Chicks.

I'd like to be able to produce rock and jazz groups. Even though everyone has access to making music at home, I still feel there is a benefit of having a professional recording studio. To either create a full studio on my own, or to work in an environment with someone who has a studio in place, has always been a dream of mine.

>inspiration:<
The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Parliament/Funkadelic, Trevor Horn, Kraftwerk, The Residents, Frank Zappa, The Bomb Squad, Prince Paul, The Dust Brothers, Pete Rock

>if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a
>producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you
>all they know, who would it be?
Hard to say. A lot of people have influenced me, a lot of people I admire for their work. As a journalist, I like being able to open the curtain of the wizard, to find out the secrets of a recording or song, to find out how the song was created, and maybe find out why that song ticks for me.

There are so many people whom I'd like to see at work, observe from afar. Todd Rundgren and Trevor Horn are two producers who are known as being perfectionists, but it's partly because they both record great music that have become hits. We view this as "perfection" when in truth it's nothing more than making it the best it can be, and taking it to the highest level possible.

I think it would be great to meet with Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of Atlantic Records. This is a man whose records I grew up with, seeing that red and green label with the white strip inbetween, spinning around. I remember thinking if I ever made music, I'd like to be on Atlantic. It wasn't that I wanted to meet Led Zeppelin, I just wanted to see my name next to the Atlantic logo.

It's hard to pick one person. It would be a toss-up between Eddie Kramer, Rick Rubin, and Prince Paul.

With Kramer, he engineered some of my favorite albums. There's a book I'd like to write, and it would involve some of Kramer's input so if that became reality, it would be great for him to not only talk about the topic, but also to hear the stories from his perspective.

With Rubin, I don't have everything he's produced, but there aren't too many people who has worked with Dixie Chicks, The Cult, Kwest Tha Madd Lad, Slayer, and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Rubin has been someone who has never jumped on trends, but artists seek him because they know he produces with care towards the final mix. When it's hip-hop, he produces with fucked up grit. When he produces those outside of hip-hop, it's well produced. He's also a huge fan of analog recording so, I'd like to observe.

De La Soul was cool, but what sold me was what he used in "Transmitting Live From Mars". He was able to slow down a common 45 and slap a language instruction record over it. To me, that was like going to a thrift store, finding random records and trying to make something cool out of it. Rap music back then still had a certain sound, if you wanted something funky you sampled something funky. Prince Paul was one of the first people who threw that unwritten rule out the window, and used records by people who weren't considered funky. The humor was something I also liked. He was also one of the first hip-hop producers I heard who put his own personality in someone else's record, and not just with the records he sampled. You can be serious in your craft while showing your funny side, maybe it's the inner comedian in some of us. I've spoken with him before, and have asked him for advice on a few projects I was doing at the time. It would be cool to observe his production style and work ethic, and listen to some of the work that remains unreleased. He did drop hints at what lurked in his tape library so... hip-hop wise, definitely Paul.

In response to Reply # 0


          

who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here):
Jimmy Whispers aka Puma Sandusky(reppin The Valliban)

where you rep:
San Fernando Valley, LA, CA

what type of music you make:
Hip Hop

what you use:
FL6, Acid, Korg N264, old turntable, vinyl, different percussion instruments, and anything I can get my hands on.

how long you been doin it:
2 years this month

what you wanna do with it:
As far as beatmaking, I want to have fun and have a creative outlet. Whatever comes from it is just a bonus. My real goal with music is to be a studio engineer.

inspiration:
Hearing all the repetitive, formulaic, wack shit that gets airplay. It just forces me to work harder.

if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you all they know, who would it be?
Dr. Dre(not so much for the beatmaking, but for the mixing skills and because he's a perfectionist) Otherwise it would have been DJ Premier.

Colin Rebey here, no trick spelling/no gimmicks

I rep Indiana, because I have to be here until I graduate college

I can make dance/electronic/and of course Rap/hip hop

I use m-audio keyboards and fruity loops along with my Numark Decks..

I've been doing this for just over a year now..

I wanna work with music for the rest of my life...

I am inspired by Sly Stone, Dilla, and Prince, along with whoever is singing/rapping in my headphones...

I would like to learn from Timbo or Pharrell.. I like the sounds they make, but if I had my choice, I would sit in with SLY....


thanks for the time, now listen!

I rep Naptown indianapolis been doing music for a long time cant give you the year but If I had to give a starting point of produceing it would be 1997 when I bought my ASR 10 brand new

I have had some luck producing songs for Keylo G and Gstack about 30,000 sold on a local level heavy radio play, I had a group signed to RCA a few years ago they screwed me and got droped from the label

Im now working on my own music you can hear at Myspace.com/edgetracks

Im working with Tasha Jones www.iamtashajones.com

currently Im using an MPC 1000,
I use reason and whatever keyboards I can get my hands on

I recently swiched back to mixing on my yamaha 02r mixer the pro-tools stuff sounds good but not as good as the baby SSL!!

My Crew is Trife Life we have a studio with the best of everything I mean hardware (Eventide, lexcon, mac g5's with 21 inch screens you know)

I dont want to work under anyone I like my sound

"There is no theory. You have only to listen. Pleasure is the law. I love music passionately. And because l love it, I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it.

97. "I am MidPoint, I be producing a project for ABNG (Lessondary)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here):MidPoint, aint got a crew, im slightly affiliated with lessondary, but not apart of the crew or whatever. Im working with A Brother Named George on a project called "HighResolutionGraphicLanguage" which will also be featuring some familiar faces (which i dont think George wants people to know about just yet)

where you rep: The Bay Area, but I aint contributing to the hyphy movement, but im not frontin on it either. it is what it is

what type of music you make: Hip Hop all day lol. Sample based. I also am a drummer of almost 10 years i want to say, and been freakin the funk with that since haha. Jazz with some real cats is alot of fun too,

what you use: Acid Music Studio actually. its not really meant for beats, but i figured out how to manipulate it well enough. I got my turntables and mixer wired into my computer (no compressors or anything)

how long you been doin it: I havent been grinding at it for very long, but i would say maybe 2 years seriously

what you wanna do with it: I just love doing it. I mean id lie if i didnt want it to go somewhere, cause whats better than living off of what you love to do right? im not gonna stop making beats tho, reguarless is people are checkin for me or not

inspiration: Life haha. nah i dont know, walking through the city with a random tape of instrumentals and just watching people, and takin in the environment always gets me makin shit more than anything.

if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you all they know, who would it be? well, I admire Madlib above all producers, so that would be my pick. youd learn alot about alot of other musics with that cat too, and he an instrumentalist as well as a beatmaker, so yeah.

Dawhud (Daa-Wu'd) David in Arabic

From Seattle, but I'm moving to Indianapolis in a couple weeks.

Been making beats for a long time. Everything from pause mix tapes to casio keyboards. Started off as an emcee, but was always into production. I got sick of going to the lab with my records and telling fools how to make the beat and then just have them take credit for it or "loose the disk."

Toolbox... Sp1200, Akai S950 (formerly Large Professors) Ensoniq EPS, Yamaha Su-10, Fender Rhodes, Bass Guitar, Akai MPC2000, Acid 4.0, Reason 2.0 and a lot of other ish.

Almost everything inspires me, but my infulences are...
Beatminerz, Primo, Pete Rock, Tribe, Dilla etc.

Unfair question, man! I'm a sponge. But if there was one, no doubt it'd be Quincy.

3rdsideproductions is the crew

Still in DC

Dance/Pop/R&B/HipHop

Using NUENDO and FLStudio and Logic 9 to sequence and for any pre production. Pro tools for post production and whatever plugins that arent compatible with the above. Still using Motif, Triton and Phantom Racks. Just got a Roland G5 its ok, the motif is still my primary keyboard. I use a Yamaha S80 for midi and the weighted key feel. I got an MPC now but its collecting dust because I can achieve so much more by just importing the sounds from the MPC into a better organized format.

5 years been doing the style I've created but I have been in music all my life, just classical based music tho.

Currently living my dream, free studio time, apprentice to 2 time grammy winning audio engineer and part owner.

Inspired by good song structure and intense performance and people who seek to change the game.

I think I would have liked to have had Piano lessons starting from a young age and some drum training, but I went out and got a drum set so its not too late. I plan on taking lessons for both.

We're a production duo from Lubbock, Tx (the home of buddy holly...anyone...?) and we just moved to Brooklyn to pursue hip hop.

We make hip hop and we're starting to focus on R&B.

We use an MPC2000xl, some synth keyboards, fruity loops, pro tools and a bunch of records.

We have been doing beats since we were in the 8th grade, which was 1997. We started making beats on MTV music generator on Playstation 1. Anyone else start on, or still, use that?

We just want to make good music. It would be nice if we could make a little money off it so we wouldn't have to go back to doing the line cook thing.

We would love, love, love to get experience working with Ayatollah. The man obviously knows what he is doing. Also, another great in our eyes is Bangladesh. He is a monter with it.

Thanks to Aeon for the initial post. What it do to everyone elss. We hope to learn from all of you and maybe we can show you guys a thing or two.

133. "Postmark - funky hip hop from the dub side"
In response to Reply # 0


          


First, if I'm replying to these threads wrong please let me know. I'm really good with a sampler, but not so good with a computer.


I am...

Postmark.

From Toronto (in that little country north of the USA called Canada)

My music is sample based hip hop with an emphasis on funky rhythms. I'm also an accomplished drummer, alto saxophonist and I play a mean melodica. My beats are percussion heavy and take production tips from the great dub masters like Lee Perry and King Tubby.

I've been making beats for just under 2 years, BUT I've been a musician ever since I can remember. In that 2 years I've released 3 albums of instrumentals and secured a distribution deal with Intellegenix Records, a label based out of Toronto.

Ideally, I want to produce beats for MC's and singers. My goal is to produce full length albums for these vocalists, rather than just sell beats individually. One day I would like to release an album like Pete Rock's Soul Survivor series or Marco Polo's Port Authority. In other words, an album produced by me with all my heroes on it.

I am never short on inspiration. The sound of the wind is enough to inspire me to make music.

If i could learn music under one master, it would undoubtedly be Pete Rock. The way in which he is able to combine multiple records that have no releation to each other into one original production never ceases to amaze me.

Hope to get to know some of you beatmakers out there. I don't meet people in Toronto that are on the same musical tip as me, so this would be refreshing.

One love,

Postmark

Ive been doing beats off and on for like 4 years, mostly cuz i couldnt get beats from other people. But now Im really starting to get more serious about it. Using samples and what not.

I use FL studio, but im looking into getting an MPC once i get some money, which could be a while haha.

Shinobi Black- Producer

The Valley, Cali-USA

R&B
Audio Explorations

MPC 2500
Logic Pro 8/ Reason 4/ Kontakt 2
MBox2 (From my Pro Tools Days)/ KRK Monitors/ M-AUDIO 88 Key Controller/ Turntable

I want to own a studio where I would do anything from Produce to Score to Write, etc.

I would love to pick the brain of Duke Ellington. Amazing compositions. I believe Classic Jazz and Hip Hop are of the same vain.

Name's Jonathan Lowell of kc.93

Hailing from Roxbury, MA.

I'm a hip hop beatmaker/audio engineer

I use FL Studio 9, and what I use with it varies depending on where I am. No specific preferences.

About a year, but I'm 17.

Only thing I really want to do is make music people like. If I get some money from it, that's great. But for now, that's the least of my worries.

Main inspiration would be the dude Madlib. Been a big follower of Stones Throw's music for a while and always though of Madlib as one of the most diverse & unique producers out.

I'd really be interested to learn under DJ Premier, since he's at an elite level at what he does, and it seems like he'd have a lot of things to teach.

In response to Reply # 0
Wed Jun-09-10 11:34 AM by SanfordBlack

  

          

Greetings OKP!

I am Sanford Black from Dallas, TX, reppin' Poor Vida Productions. I make funky hip hop instrumentals from outer space using Reason, Adobe Audition and Cool Edit Pro, records, a couple synthesizers (MicroKorg and Ensoniq ESQ-1 which I love so much) and I bang the shit out of my MPD18. Been at it for about five years, sucking hard for about 4.75 years.

Working on my first release right now, should be done in a month and out in two or three, then I've gotta figure out how to get a live set going (and more importantly, how to make a live set interesting).

I was initially inspired to make beats after hearing Prefuse 73 and Madlib (around the same time). Something about the quality of their work hit me hard in the chest and led me to believe crafting beats was something I could get involved with. Now, I get my inspiration from life. It is turbulent and ridiculous and unfair and way too hard but if I can pick out the best parts of it and turn them into sounds, then turn those sounds into music... well... I'ma do that.

Peace!
eSBee

who you are (if you've got a crew, shout 'em out here): Name's AbJo, I'm associated with The Soul Dojo and KC.93 Radio & Records, as well as Fly High of Sacramento

where you rep: the sunny streets of San Diego, "Daygo" as we affectionately call it...

what type of music you make: Hip Hop, from the vintage to the electronic, and soul music, from the Gene Page and Quincy Jones haydays to the Nicolay and Madlib sorts...

what you use: Reason 4, Logic Pro 8, Alesis Mk.II Actives, Yamaha Clavinova, Korg padKontrol, and my handy Tascam US-144 whenever the mood strikes for a live sound...

how long you been doin it: 'bout 4 years now, I believe...

what you wanna do with it: What else? Produce. Make beats. Mix down good music. Master good music. Take it to the road. Wherever the good music and good pay is, I wanna be at...

inspiration: To be specific, cats like Madlib and Dilla, obviously. But as far as more realistic inspirations, Just Blaze and Alchemist, Questlove and James Poyser, that whole crew, and older cats like Quincy and Herbie...Sergio Mendes too, that cat is unprecedented as far as soulful music goes...

if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person, be it a producer, vocalist, instrumentalist; and have them teach you all they know, who would it be?

?uestlove, for sure. I'm not even sayin' this because we on the Okayplayer boards; he's been in this business as long as I've been alive, and when it comes down to it, he's everything I've ever wanted to be musically: Drummer, producer, musician, engineer...look me up and that's pretty much the all of the job titles I cling to these days.

In any case, check me out at:

http://abjo.bandcamp.com

http://abjo.tumblr.com (I drop single beats and other miscellaneous music of mine there)

AND my one of my latest features, The Nature of Things EP, courtesty of The Soul Dojo:

http://music.thesouldojo.com/album/the-nature-of-things-ep

and last but not least, shoot the shit with me on twitter, @AbJonianSanders...

probably much too late to this party, but it won't hurt to post.

>who you are:
Options- no crew, just me

>where you rep:
from Chicago, USA. currently in Tokyo. possibly Toronto in the near future.

>what type of music you make:
predominately Hip Hop instrumentals, although I venture out from time to time. but everything is from a Hip Hop perspective

>what you use:
MPC 2kxl, Fantom X6, MacBook w/ Garage Band, my new kalimba

>how long you been doin it:
since... '01-ish

>what you wanna do with it:
make heads nod. put out some dope instrumental projects, link w/ some nice lyricists, enjoy myself.

>inspiration:
Dilla, Yoko Kanno, Dego and Kaidi, Madlib...

>if you could learn under the tutelage of ONE person...
can't choose one right now, but someone who could teach me about music from a perspective different that my own. at this point, I'd love to sit at the feet of an accomplished engineer- knowledge of that dimension of music is something I'm long overdue in learning.

peace to all the music-makers here in the OKP forums.
