Diana (10 years old) shows her MPC skills
“It’s funny how she has only been using the MPC for 5 days and is better than 95% of the people on youtube that say they’ve been making beats for years.”-okag3
I got this email last night from B. durazzo, now normally I don’t spend a lot of time checking out unsolicited emails but I’m glad I followed the Youtube links for this one because both of the videos are Fresh! oh yea and Shout out to Willard Jr High from an alumni! -NHB
“My name is Benjamin Durazzo “B.durazzo”. I am a 23 year old MPC hip hop producer hailing from Oakland, CA. I develop and teach music production classes for youth at schools and community centers all over the SF Bay Area (King Middle School and Willard Middle School in Berkeley, West Oakland Middle School in Oakland, and Lincoln High School in San Leandro). I have started a non profit organization called Today’s Future Sound that acts as an umbrella for the work that I do, helping kids from a diverse range of backgrounds learn the art of beatmaking on the MPC.
As for my own work, I perform live with two MPCs at once. Drums with the left hand and melodies with the right hand.”
