You can see why turntablists like scratching “ahhhh” and “fressssshhhh” so much — they’re structureless slabs of tuned white noise, so they’re more forgiving. Scratching a rap a cappella is another story. The words have meanings, and the pitches have a musical context. When a word falls in the wrong spot or with the wrong emphasis, it sounds much worse than a wrong note in a jazz solo, and an untrained listener is more likely to notice it.

If you can start getting back to the markets that are a reasonable drive away on a regular basis, you’ll start to see your network of bands and promoters, as well as your fan base grow in those cities. Once that happens and you can rely on those markets to make you some decent money on the road, it becomes feasible to start tacking on additional dates in new markets. From there, that national tour you’ve always dreamed of is just a few short steps away!

The core of Boards of Canada’s synth sound is motion. By chaining LFOs to settings like oscillator pitch, frequency cutoff and pulse-width, your flat-sounding waves will have life breathed into them. Judicious use of the filter is also essential. Experiment with the frequency position of a low-pass or a band-pass filter — using this you’ll be able to accentuate the midrange and further emphasize that nostalgic feeling.

In this edition of “Talking Points,” producer and beat maker Kaytranada talks about his grooves, his influences, and his upbringing, and we boil it down!

I started to experiment with some of the horn samples in the pack and, though I didn’t end up using any, they gave me the idea to feature a trumpet player. I immediately thought of my friend and frequent collaborator, Jake Baldwin. I met Jake in Boston in 2010 while I was at Berklee and he was down the street studying at NEC. We started making music together right away in our New York-based hip-hop collective, Tiger Speak, but in recent years, we’ve both relocated to other cities.

Signal phase plays a huge role in the quality of any audio that you handle. Despite that fact, it can manifest only very subtly and be hard to detect. An undetected phase problem will zap the power out of a mix; whereas a mix with well-considered phase relationships is easier to handle and the resulting sound will be stronger, crisper, and will print well on any physical media.

Once you’ve got everything booked and confirmed, it’s time to start promoting the show. Personally inviting people and making sure everyone posts and reposts on their social media is the bare minimum. This will let everyone’s fanbase know about the show. But if you’ve put together a truly special event, you’re going to need to branch out from your immediate networks.
