Make Hip Hop Beats: 'Reclaiming the Remix w / Maschine': Yogi Talks G. Dep's 'Let's Get It'



The latest must-see episode of the hugely popular Dubspot series hosted by Shareef Islam.

In this episode, another of hip hop's most underated producers, Yogi (Cru, P Diddy's Hitmen) discusses one of his biggest productions, 'Let's Get It', for G. Dep, Diddy and Black Rob.

Without giving too much away, Shareef and Yogi discuss the Harlem shake, the Korg Triton and the ASR-10 and more, before Shareef breaks down his take on the classic.  If you're looking for help on LFO and automation, this episode will especially be of value to you.

One of my favourite Bad Boy anthems, 'Let's Get It' is both minimal and epic at the same time.  I especially love how the tension of 'Let's Get It' is released here and there, courtesy of the dramatic Teddy Riley-style string/synth stabs.

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is. The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo. Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop. Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies. It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs. Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which i

Forthcoming 'Influenced' Podcast

NEWS:  I'm contributing to a new podcast exploring creative connections between legendary and emerging artists Good news alert! I’ve got the great honour and pleasure to be working on a forthcoming music podcast. The podcast, called ‘Influenced’, will trace the path of new artists back to those which came before and reflect on how previous generations of music influenced those which followed their lead, be it directly or indirectly.  Playlists on Spotify and Apple Music will take the listener through our musical time travel in a mixtape fashion. ‘Influenced’ is the brainchild of a great friend of mine, Mark Williams. Mark is even more of a music enthusiast than me and his personality, charisma, enthusiasm and love for music is apparent to anyone who knows him, I’m sure.
