  • 1. Music Producers
    Nathalie Lumang
  • 2. Introduction
    • Where has music evolved to now?
    Digital Media and Sampling Era
    Synthesizers and Samplers
    Hip-hop and Rap communities take advantage of these technologies and incorporate it in their music.
    Music Producers are the ones getting the recognition now.
  • 3. Music Producers
    There were three notable groups of musical producers that emerged in the late 1990s and early 2000s:
    • The Neptunes: Pharrell Williamsand Chad Hugo
    • 4. Timbaland
    • 5. Dr. Dre
    They resemble what the “Beats Generation” was trying to do in the 50s.
    • Their “style” is influential to many.
    • 6. Artists use these music producers to gain recognition or sometimes re-launch their career.
  • The Neptunes
    Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo
    • Incorporate the skills they learned in marching band from high school and from what they learned in while traveling with their band N.E.R.D
    • 7. “Superthug” by N.O.R.E is the first song that you could hear “The Neptunessound”
    • 8. They are now associated with various artists including Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Jay-Z, and Snoop Dogg.
    A Neptunes Production
    • Apply funk and drum and bass. Pharrell usually drums for the songs they produce.
    • 9. Drums are the foundation of their sound: Usually strong and upbeat.
    • 10. Known for their creative arrangements of synth riffs.
  • Timbaland
    Started off as a DJ
    • From his knowledge with the equipment used for DJs, he tried making his own hip-hop tracks.
    Discovered by Missy Elliott
    • Started off working with artists such as Ludacris, Aaliyah, and Jay-Z.
    • 11. Created Mosley Music Group and branched out working with mainstream artists such as Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake, and Madonna.
    Timbaland Production
    • Beatboxingand add-in samples.
    • 12. Ex. “Are You That Somebody” by Aaliyah, there’s a “baby” voice in the background.
    • 13. Purpose is to try and clean up the early 90s raw hip-hop sound with the new technology now.
  • Dr. Dre
    Career started in the mid-1980s
    • World Class Wreckin’ Cru and N.W.A.
    • 14. Started producing in the early 90s with Snoop Dogg
    West Coast G-funk
    • Cross between old school funk and hip-hop beats that was best featured in Snoop Dogg’s song “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang”
    • 15. Sound dominated most of the 90s scene.
    • 16. Created record label Aftermath: Eminem and 50 Cent
    Dr. Dre Production
    • Cleaner than the early 1990s hip-hop sound, but still intact with his roots and contains a “gangster” vibe
    • 17. Slow heavier beats
    • 18. Uses a synthesizer, but tries not to every chance he gets.
    • 19. He would rather have a real musician play out the parts.
  • Conclusion
    Digital Media and Sampling Era
    • Arguments that with the use of synthesizers and sampling, there is no “authenticity” in music anymore
    New Age of “Authenticity”
    • We perceive things differently now, and have the producers in mind.
    • 20. Sampling pieces together takes creativity.
    • 21. It’s the new style.
    • 22. Many try to imitate or make their own sound with synthesizers and samplers.
    • 23. Would have to have some sort of knowledge about the various genres and what fits well with one another.
