Eric Sermon Making A Beat w/ Yamaha Motif ES8

The Funk Lord Eric Sermon heads to DJ Desue’s studio in Berlin and makes a beat from scratch using a Yamaha Motif ES8.

What I do is I take a sample from somewhere or some type of sample sound and make it sound gritty. So **** think it could be a loop or could be something.

  1. That was dope as hell. I always wondered how E Serm made his beats. They don’t call him the Funklord for nuthin!

  2. Those are the stock sounds,I own the motif xs and all.the workstation stock.sounds are great the motif xf which is the .latest version has great acoustic sounds and epiano,Rhodes,organ,guitars,ect ,dope video to wake.up to

  3. I been waitin’ for a E. Sermon beatmaking video ever since I saw him on his motif in Scratch magazine about 5 or 6 years ago. Dope video. Thanks for the post.

    • Is there anything that is even close to Scratch magazine out there now days. I used to read that magazine from cover to cover. Then toward the end it became XXL Jr. and sucked. Up until they started putting rappers on the covers that was one of the best magazines and I still have not been able to find anything really close to it since.

      • They’re weak i paid for a subscription and only got one before they cancelled wrote a letter and all that with no reply! But i hope sometin like it comes out it was dope! Is XXL Jr a production mag? and is it still out?

  4. Yeah, E. Sermon still gettin’ it in! That’s good! Not too many major producers (if any) fu*kin’ with the Motif like that! Dope video!

  5. This is not the only Instrument he gets down on he’s nice on the sp1200 too ! Still respect to an architect tho !Dope video Sup Semantik?

  6. Don’ t laugh at me , yall but I didn’t think you could make a whole beat on a Motif like that. I’ve never played with one of those before. i’ve been sayin’ for years that E Double is one of the most underappreciated and overlooked cats that ever did it. Dude’s catalog is on some straight “short yellow bus” shit.

  7. wow the video’s have really slowed down on this site , usto see a new video in 2 days or less now its down to 2 months or less what up with that semantic ? is the recession keeping cats from making beats ? no disrespect i just need to be inspired right now !
