“It’s that time of year folks. My magnum opus. The reason we are here today. I’m honored to present to you BLAP-KIT VOLUME 9. So what sets this volume apart from the rest, you ask? Well, for starters, I’ve almost DOUBLED the amount of one-shot sounds you get (roughly 250). The focus for this kit is to act as an all around, true GO-TO for any and all genres and styles. Every single sound is sharper than Valyrian Steel (My Game Of Thrones heads know whats up). I really focused on making sure each texture was balanced, usable, stackable and ready to just plug in and program away. I went tasteful on the reverbs and sustain trails here, so you can easily take these sounds and add your own effects to make them even more custom. There are so many textures here. This will probably be your GO-TO kit that you’ll find yourself coming back to the most. What a time to be alive. Now go level up!” – !llmind

Adrian Younge – Psych, Dark Soul, & Electronic Impressions

Purchase it here: Adrian Younge – Psych, Dark Soul, & Electronic Impressions 

Adrian Younge defines the golden era of recording as music produced within 1968-73’. This canonical period contains some of the best and most experimental records of all time, yet many do not understand the reasoning behind this.  With exception to composition and musicianship, the nucleus of this phenomenon rests solely in the use of vintage instrumentation, analog hardware and discrete recording equipment.

Where modern DAWs have sought to emulate this era of production, Younge has spent the last 20 years creating a museum quality production house; a studio created for the purpose of revitalizing his golden era without cutting corners: Linear Labs studios.   It’s an analog fortress, with no computers, and is touted as one of the best production houses in the world.  In purchasing this library, you now gain rare access into the audio stems of Adrian Younge: a bespoke world of meticulously crafted productions, curated for the sole purpose of sampling.

  • All music engineered, produced and composed by Adrian Younge
  • Recorded at Linear Labs Studios
  • Overdriven recordings into the fattest analog tape: 2” reels
  • All vintage hardware based production, with no Plug-ins
  • Stereo WAV 24-bit formatting
  • Exported loops and individual audio stems

Instruments include:

  • Harpsichords
  • Fender Rhodes Electric piano
  • Hammond organ
  • Vibraphones, Glockenspiels, and Marimbas
  • Analog synthesizers
  • Fuzz guitars
  • Electric Bass
  • Sitars

Become a millionaire LEASING BEATS

18 Mar

Screen Shot 2017-03-17 at 7.30.46 PM

This post is a response to what @illmindPRODUCER was ranting about the last few days on Twitter. While !llmind has some good points, he’s missing some key points and looking at the issue of selling beats to “struggle rappers” from high on the pedestal of someone who has already “made it” in the music industry. For the rest of us, this is our hustle and one that could potentially turn us into millionaires if we play our cards right.

I want to preface this article by stating that the $50 beat you sold last week could definitely turn into $1,000,000 in publishing but it is HIGHLY unlikely and completely improbable. I take that stance that any money made doing something you love is a good thing, whether the end result is a “good thing”or not. I’m of the mindset that you should get every god damn dollar you can and do it TODAY. Chasing placements has never been a winning strategy for MOST people.

I’m also going to do a lot of generalization of math and scenarios to get the fucking wheels turning in your head.

To summarize, you’re probably not going to make a million dollars in publishing revenues off your music. Chasing placements is like playing the lottery for most producers. However, you can definitely become a millionaire by leasing beats to “struggle rappers”. Some of the top charting SoundClick producers are pulling 6 figures off leases and hustling their drum kits annually. Most of the beatmakers that are leasing and selling beats to Internet rappers, cats around the way, and so called “struggle rappers” are probably raking in a few thousand dollars annually. We are talking anywhere between $1,000 to $60,000 for arguments sake.

If you have a job and you’re pulling $1,000 to $60,000 on the side that’s pretty damn good and you’re probably doing better financially than MOST guys that actually have these placements. So what do you do with that extra cash? Invest it.

Conventional wisdom tells us to invest in ourselves and invest in our craft. This generally equates to purchasing some new gear, samples, investing in a website, branding, etc. While all of these investments are necessary, you can get carried away getting “geared up”. Gear is nice, but the gear rabbit hole is deep and gear envy is rampant. Investing in yourself doesn’t only mean buying new equipment or DAW’s or subscribing to the latest cloud based sample source. It means putting that money away for the future or putting it to work for yourself.

Lets face it, most of us don’t have someone funding our retirements or investing in our futures. As self sufficient producers and beatmakers we should be investing our lease and beat sale money into real estate (online and physical), tax deferred investment accounts, taxable investment accounts, etc. If you’ve got student loans or any form of debt, you can pay down the debt and break the chains of debt slavery making and selling beats.

The math is simple and I suggest you research compounding interest and investing for yourself, the Internet is full of great resources. Stashing $5,500 into an Roth IRA every year for 30 years will grow into more than a million dollars. You could open an account with a low cost and automated investment service like Wealthfront with $500 and watch it turn into millions by using your struggle rapper cashflow.

If investing in the stock market isn’t your cup of tea, you could always save a fat chunk of your struggle rapper cash and purchase an online business from a marketplace like Empire Flippers. An online business that cost roughly $30,000 can pay up to $900 to $1,100 dollars a month cashflow. Most of these businesses require very little work and have growth potential. That’s $1,100 a month for a minimal investment using side money.

The investment options for us bedroom producers and online hustlers are more numerous than the few I mentioned here (Wealthfront and Empire Flippers).

The goal then should be not to atain a million dollar publishing deal or chase the improbable dream of producing for the next Drake. The goal should be more manageable and realistic. There is nothing wrong with setting high goals, but lets start with $5,500 a year. It’s attainable with leasing beats and selling exclusives and if invested correctly over a lifetime it will grow into a million plus dollars.

Listen, you make dope fucking beats. There are thousands of us making dope fucking beats. We’re going to invariably sell some of these beats to some shitty rappers and hopefully we sell some to some talented rappers. There are thousands of rappers with the same dreams, ambitions, and musical passion as you and they’re invariably struggling. Connect with these people, make transactions, invest and have fucking fun. Just because your songs won’t be classics doesn’t mean they won’t be relevant. In fact, I see nothing more relevant than paying for your retirement by making music.

Struggle rappers pay bills and they can potentially turn us into millionaires
