Behind The Beat is a new series I had the idea to do, in which I go through, analyze and dissect instrumentals. Decided to kick off the first episode by taking a look at the new Still DOE single "Blockhead." I'm thinking in the future if I do more computer-based beats I should record a screencast rather than the bootleg style (still holding it down with the basic point and shoot, might upgrade in the future to something more versataile), but time will tell. And it also depends. Sometimes I'm using hardware and the DAW at the same time.
For this series I feel like I can never run out of episodes to do. I want to try keeping each episode at between 5 and 6 minutes, which I think is not too long and not too short, just a quick breakdown and a few in-depth things. Also dropping the science on what I use to produce, some of the stuff I sample, hidden gems and secrets, mixing tips, tricks and techniques.
There's no schedule for these episodes, basically whenever I feel like filming one. It should also be interesting to load really early project files as well as more recent classics.
