90s hip hop groups

This mentored online course is the brainchild of composer, educator, and cultural diplomat Charles Burchell, and provides a deep, well-rounded understanding of the subtleties of hip-hop beat production. We cover areas of producing hip-hop such as: writing beats and bass lines from scratch, creative sampling techniques, arranging and songwriting, mixing, and more, with a specific eye to hip-hop’s many subgenres.

We are all involved with music in different ways — some of us play the piano, the flute, the bass guitar, drums, one is DJ in his spare time, one is a label manager. And some of the staff here do not play instruments themselves but have strong, deep connections with music. Above all else, we are all real diggers. Every member of our staff owns at least one turntable and spends a lot of their time digging through crates!

Grants for musicians

My company, Full English Post, works on all sorts of audio projects including TV shows, films, commercials, documentaries, and podcasts. I produce, record, edit, and mix the Mixmag On Rotation weekly podcast, which keeps me on my toes to yield quick turnarounds and a well-produced product.

Notice how over the Dm7 chord we play the 5, 6, ♭7, and ♭3. It’s not uncommon to omit the root note when soloing over chord changes, or at least delay the arrival back to the root until the end of the solo for maximum resolution!
