The IC Beatmaking/Producing Thread

StillFaggyAFStillFaggyAF QueerLGBT CommunityPosts: 40,359 ✭✭✭✭✭
We all know the IC Talent subforums are dead so I felt it would be a good idea to have a thread on producing in the Reason. I know there's a few out there that produce or rappers looking for production so in this thread we can network, discuss, share tips etc.

Here's a good facebook group for finding samples:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/vinyldom/

anyone can join it^


And to kick things off, what are your top 10 producers and why?

    good thread man...i love the I.C. but hate that there is producer forum doesnt really get no shine.

    7 producers i love

    Dilla (number 1) - as the saying goes, "he is your favourites producer, favourite producer".....dude has made many classics, some of which you might have loved, that you probably didnt even know were made by him. Dude reinvented hiphop production, had his own sound, so unique but so familiar...the fusion of so many different genres, his ear for dope samples wether they came from rock, soul, jazz, synth sounds, etc...his ability to compose, and the amount of producers he inspired...i swear i could talk about J-dilla all day. fucking dope.

    Premier - goes without saying....a pioneer...created some dope cuts. The simple "boom bap" sound, always had your head nodding and sometimes you didnt even know why cus it was just a 2wo bar loop you were hearing. He could flip a sample like no other, was emulated by many but matched by none. linked with some of the greatest artists in hiphophistory, made some careers also....He may not get the appreciation he deserves due to the different direction of "hiphop" amongst the younger generation, but anyone that truely knows hiphop will atleast appreciate his talent.

    Timbaland - before he linked up with timberlake dude was a beast....i mean the shit he made for J.T. and even nelly furtardo (however you spell her name)....shit was dope from a musical point of view but the overall songs wernet what i wanted to hear. anyway...all timbaland and magoo albums were dope (production wise), everything he did for jigga, missy, aaliyah, ginuwine...you know the list.....an originator.....always been one of my favs...nowadays if i see his name attached to something i will give it a miss, but i have all his old shit on constant rotation.

    Dr. Dre - what is a producers list without Dre...this guy created 3 epic eras in hiphop....the NWA phase, the Deathrow Phase, and then the Aftermath phase.....all three have been important milestones in hiphop and all three he was spearheading. thats all that needs to be said about him.

    Alchemist - Gritty, grimey, hood, simple...one of my main influences....not necessarily soundwise but moreso because of his simplicity was effective....from his work with Mobb Deep, dilated peoples, infamous mobb, his own shit....i swear his shit is the definition of grimey.

    Madlib - this dude is a fucking enigma wrapped in a riddle. from his multi-personalities, to his weird off kilter rapping, to his dope fucking sample selections, his style will never be understood...sometimes he pushes the envelope a lil too far for my liking, but thats also why i like him....cus he aint scared to try something different. plus he has got some classic joints out there and some unknown joints that should be classic bt people just dont know.

    Exile - "Below The Heavens" and "Boy Meets World"...all i need to say...if you dont know get to know

    oh organized noise and DOOM.....cant be bothered to write an explanation fo them though cus my high is dying off thinking of all these words


    i havent named them all but im getting bored of writing

    Just got Ableton Live 9 Suite & an MPK25. I use to fuck with a MPC2500 but sold it to cop a Rane TTM-57sl and run Serato. I also DJ so Ableton and their free add on "The Bridge" was a perfect combo for me. Make beats and mix CDs of my favorite songs.
