Make Hip Hop Beats: 'Reclaiming the Remix' w / Maschine: DR Period and Rsonist

Somehow this Dubspot series went by unnoticed until now.
Dubspot is proud to present Reclaiming the Remix w/ Maschine--a new video series in which Dubspot instructor Shareef Islam invites noted producers and remixers to revisit some of their classic productions using Native Instruments' Maschine and create custom setups for performance in a live setting.
Up top is the latest episode with DR Period.  One of hip hop's most slept-on producers, DR has made bangers for some of rap's A list.  With the possible exception of Smooth da Hustler / Trigga tha Gambler, it's fellow Brownsville, Brooklynites MOP that Period shares the most creative synergy with.  With that in mind, it's only right that Islam and Period reverse engineer the Mash Out Posse's 'Ante Up'.

The guest for the earlier episode is one of the men most responsible for that hugely popular Dipset sound, Rsonist of The Heatmakerz duo. Here, the pair break down 'Dipset Anthem'. One thing I particularly like about this episode is Rsonit's honesty when discussing his hardware preferences.

I see this series becoming a must-see.  I like the informal vibe, the warm rapport Shareef shares with his beatmaking peers and I think the remix element is an especially inspiring element to the show.
