  1. I thought the video was pretty cool. It was a little corny though LOL. It obviously wasn’t a real beatmaker creating anything. I think it captured the artform though. I know I sit around listening to records until a sound I hear jumps out at me and lights a fire under me to jump on the mpc. Sometimes I do leave in the middle of a beat and go do somethingelse untill I get the inspiration to go back to the beat and complete it. Thanks for posting this one Semantic

  2. hilarious video, hilarious comments. I really dig the part where he gets all frustrated, cause I’ve been there so many times – just pushing buttons on the mpc, all pissed off and ready for some magic to happen. Great work.

  3. this video really captures the artform, vinyl is kinda the easiest and hardest way to make beats i think. if u can find that right sample, right everything the beat comes out nice and quick. but thang, when u hit that little block, ughhhh…great vid, love the fatboy part…haha

  4. I’ve said that least 422100 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

  5. This video is hilarious, although yes it does capture the life of a beat maker and why it is so easy to get obsessed with this hobby. I don’t know about you guys but I can literally lose hours and days just working on beats and getting completely absorbed into the process!! Really neat, will pass this video along to some of my buddies, haha…
