BEATS 101

BEAT MAKING TIPS FROM THE PROS

“THERE’S AN ART TO MAKING CONSECUTIVE HOT BEATS…” Producers & Beat-makers, there's a lot of money to be made from selling and leasing beats. With a worldwide customer base at your fingertips the possibilities are endless. If you have the talent to make a beat so hot that everyone wants to get on it, you may have a shot. The hard part is doing it over and over. Sometimes playing around with drum pads, mpc's and programs everything comes together and we produce the hottest beat ever. But then find ourselves unable to do it again and make another hit beat. You’re not alone, many can make a beat but there's an art to making consecutive hot beats. If you’re a producer trying hard to lock down that art, I put this article together in efforts to steer you in the right direction. I selected beat makers and producers from all around the world that make hot beats consecutively, and make a living off beats and production. These professionals were kind enough to pass down a valuable tip to help you become successful in a beat making career. “My tip is Make each beat unique. You don't have to copy someone else's style to be successful. Create a new sound, master that sound, and become the leader of your original new school work.”

“If I had to give a quick tip I'd tell up and coming producers to always strive to be better to stay ahead of the competition by studying their favorite producers to create a style that is unique and original. Also always keep their sound banks up to date because music is always evolving. A producer is only as good as his sound bank.”

“One tip I can give is that any up and coming producers just stay down with the grind and invest in yourself.”

“As a sample based producer I would say, when looking at samples always listen to the whole track! Don't just skip after the intro because you could miss a dope sample. Also do not limit yourself to one type of genre experiment with different sounds.”

“The biggest tip I can give is to KEEP GRINDING. It may seem that you’re the only one that believes in yourself, but you have to or else no one will. Perseverance is key.”

“For all producers, when it’s time to use a sample, even if you think that you could use a long and easy loop for your beat, don't be scared to cut the groove into small pieces. You really need to create your own melodies and add your own flavor to your creation to be different. Still, you are best placed to know what to do with the sample in your hands, the best guide is always your ears and your instincts!”
