Hot instrumentals but with a twist - I actually play out all of the instruments in my tracks, rather than sampling off an old song. My beats are a more melodic and instrument heavy mix of hip-hop, r&b, jazz, and classical - some containing improvs on the piano and guitar.
I was classicaly trained in piano since I was 6, but have always been influenced by jazz, hip hop, r&b, soul, good instrumentalists, and any music that means something
GarageBand, Studiologic SL-880 Pro Keyboard, Kurzweil Mark 12, my brain
Just wanted to try to bring more musicality to the production side. While there is definitely a skill to sampling, and I respect the people that are truly talented in it - I just think there is an over-reliance on it, and not enough of actual musical performance.
