The Reggae Producers That Changed The Way We Record Music

Perhaps no innovations have been as far-reaching as the set of boundary-smashing experiments that a small group of producers performed on multi-track recording machines and mixing desks in a handful of Jamaican studios throughout an astonishingly creative period almost 50 years ago.

Fr6nco – “Late Night Mentality” (EP REVIEW)

There are a lot of really good things to say about Fr6nco and his latest ep, “Late Night Mentality,” but unfortunately for the Columbus Ohio native, there’s just one element missing that’s holding back his music. Throughout the entire tracklist of the EP, the production quality is exemplary. The instrumentals are loaded with sweeping melodies and crisp percussion. Each one sounds great and carries a large amount of emotion. On top of that, the vocals really amplify the mood of each song. Fr6...

How Those Mosaic Music Videos Are Made

The clap serves the same purpose as the clapperboard used on TV and movie sets. You, too, will be editing the audio and video separately; the clap creates a visual and sonic marker that helps you realign the two later. It also lets you align all the players’ videos with each other.

Allyship: Schwarze Menschen brauchen echte weiße Verbündete – so wirst du eine*r

Hinweis: Aus Gründen der Lesbarkeit haben wir den englischen Begriff „allies“ teilweise mit “Verbündeten“ übersetzt. Es muss allerdings angemerkt werden, dass hinter dem Begriff eigentlich mehr steckt. Es geht nicht nur darum, mitfühlend und solidarisch zu sein, sondern andere Menschen aktiv zu unterstützen und sich für sie einzusetzen und zu engagieren. 2020 hat der schwarzen Community ein fast schon lähmendes Elend gebracht.
