If you’ve got some time, please allow the Professor of the MPC, IV the Polymath, learn you some beat making. This 8-minute YouTube clip shows IV compiling some record samples and live instruments into an instrumental all with the work of his MPC, turntable, left AND right hands, and some live instruments. My personal favorite, of course, the congas.
This video was actually made last year and IV took to his Twitter account and asked if we’d like to see more. I don’t mind speaking for the collective group of music adorers, but, yes, yes we would. TECB has shown folks freakin’ the MPC before, such as Rhode Island’s own 8th Wundah, which you can watch here, and also when he did it a live battle against AraabMuzik, here. Two totally different styles but both are held in high regard by us in the Echo Lake crew.
Let us know in the comment section what you think and if you would like to show off your producin’-on-the-fly skills, by all means, show us.
