In this new Native Instruments video you can get a deeper insight into Marc "MK" Kinchen's approach to his productions, remixes and DJ sets.
Marc uses NI's Maschine to chop up a vocal sample and build a remix, then drags the parts straight into Traktor's Remix Decks.
My order for a NI Maschine is going in shortly, I can tell you that much.
I started Deeper Shades Of House show #409 with the Pablo Bolivar & Maurice Aymard remix of "More for the Less" produced by Mario Basanov featuring Jeremy Glenn on vocals. Check out the official music video for the original version below. The vinyl is out now on Apersonal Music, mp3 and wav will be available on March 4th 2013.
FaltyDL's new single "She Sleeps" featuring Ed Macfarlane is out on February 11th 2013 through Ninja Tune. Enjoy the official music video of this feelgood tune and watch people getting down on their rollerskates in Central Park, NYC
Wow, wow, wow. I just came across this highly inspiring live video by Bulgarian producer KiNK, creating a track pretty much on the fly with a simple but super effective set up.
Deeper Shades of House fans know how I feel about KiNK's music and watching this makes my hands sweaty and my heart beat faster. It is another example that as a producer you "just" need to know what tools you're working with, study them inside and out, and you can create amazing tunes.
Check out the video right below.
From the YouTube description:
When I was a kid, I used to create loops on records by sticking tape on the grooves. Recently I found this one and one of the loops inspired me for a live jam. I plugged the turntable into MFB Synth II (the blue box) so I can filter the vinyl. I made a beat with MFB 522 (the red box) and I beatmatched the record to the beats by hand, as the pitch control of this turntable is very limited. In order to get richer sound, I plugged the instruments through a portable Mackie mixer with FMR - RNLA compressor on the inserts and Electro-Harmonix Memory Man with Hazari on the Aux.
As a long time fan I was super excited to see that German DVD magazine "Slices" did a feature on classic producer and house legend Romanthony. Find out about his production ethics, the silence after his collaboration with Daft Punk on "One More Time" and hear a short acoustic version of "The Wanderer".
