The Lab hosted a holiday photo shoot during last Saturday's Open Lab to feature its enthusiasm, commitment, and ingenuity within the team; and to share a smile for the holiday season. It was a great opportunity for newcomers to meet and talk with other Lab students about their progress and experience, and learn how this place fosters confidence and creativity among its own. To express its sincerest thanks, The Lab is creating holiday cards with photos from the shoot. More photos can be seen here. (Photos by John Erickson and Anna Harriss)

Hip hop production is the creation of hip hop music. Though the term encompasses all aspects of hip hop music, it's most commonly used to refer to the instrumental, non-lyrical aspects of hip hop. This means that hip hop producers are the instrumentalists involved in a work. Modern hip hop production uses samplers, sequencers, drum machines, synthesizers, turntables, and live instrumentation. A hip hop instrumental is commonly referred to as a beat, and hip hop producers are commonly referred to as beat makers. However, in the studio, a hip hop producer also functions as a traditional record producer, being the person who is ultimately responsible for the final sound of a recording. Many producers use sampling and Marley Marl also popularized a minimal style of using one or two sampled loops in the late 80s. The Akai MPC60 came out in 1988, capable of 12 seconds of sampling time.

I've seen people play around with samples and instruments while they have other loops playing but to play them all at once with intricate drums is taking it to a new level. Edison does his shows with his lunchbox monome along with other various midi controllers and Ableton Live.

Let's face it, mix CDs never replaced the mixtape (cassette) as a meaningful gift. Something about the mixtape symbolized real effort. Personalizing the cassette sticker and the tracklisting was almost as important as the music itself.-Turntablelab

Clinton Sparks has been in the game for a minute. Im not a huge fan of New York radio DJ's that tag every single song-but Sparks always seems to deliver quality-working exclusively with Hip hop, rock, pop and electro artists. He always has his own remixes, production and even juggle routines to showcase.
