araabMUZIK-How to Make… “Flex” w/ FACT Mag *Video

Note : Look at those fresh scars on araab’s arm from his recent shooting

FACT sais:

Let’s face it – no one does it like AraabMuzik.

The Rhode Island producer got his start making beats for Cam’ron’s Dipset label in 2006, and his breakthrough 2011 mixtape Electronic Dream is one of the 10 best albums of the decade so far.

Since then he’s worked with A$AP Rocky, Busta Rhymes and 50 Cent and released his debut album Dream World despite being shot on two occasions. He’s also regarded to be one of the best producers in hip-hop today for his unique way with the MPC sampler.

We linked up with AraabMuzik in his studio in the Bronx for the latest episode of our How To Make A Track series. During the session he gave us a detailed, step-by-step masterclass on the techniques and methods he used to produce ‘Flex’, a collaboration track with Fabolous and Tory Lanez.

Da Beatminerz-Rhythm Roulette w/ Mass Appeal *Video

Mass Appeal sais:

There’s a reason Rhythm Roulette can skew towards the old and dusty hip hop producers of the late ’90s: that’s when sample cutting and crate-digging were the foremost currency of cool. Da Beatminerz were legends in that game, the architects behind OG NYC sounds, from Black Moon’s Enta Da Stage and Smif-N-Wessun’s Da Shinin’, among many others. We took a visit to Da Beatminerz’s apartment/headquarters in eastern Brooklyn to watch Mr. Walt and DJ Evil Dee cook up a few beats, working in close collaboration for the most part. It’s a family affair at the crib, and the beat has all the influence of their rugged NY sound, with an upbeat angle that shows how far they’ve come.
