Pure genius!!!!!!!!!!
The intricacy and subtlety displayed in this performance is astounding. Aside from the outrageous talent shown by the three DJ/Producers, how well does this illustrate the diversity of the MPC ramge as a studio and performance tool? - Woah...

Just goes to show that you can use samples and still be creative and original. They've more talent than most indie bands I've heard.

holy crap that was the best thing ive ever seen ..
that shows why every hip hop producer raves over the mpc range they blow every sampler away ..youd never see anything like that done on software samplers.

to be honest ive got software samplers but i still think my akai 3000xl is much better the editing and playback seems too me much more realistic sounding and also a sample done in the akai sounds much warmer than say kontakt ..i know software samplers have better memory and can play back longer samples but i can sample and edit 10 times faster in my akai than i ever could in kontakt.

If you liked the technical intricacy of that, then you may also be interested in this short myspace video of daltron/d-tronics using an mpc-4000 from 2005.

Default Crap

This is complete crap. They kid themselves that they are musicians but they are not. Your grandmother could do this even better. They just bash buttons and make an awful racket. These people need to learn to read music, perhaps even play a real musical instrument. Start with a recorder do some grades. Then you have some talent. I cant believe anybody would be daft enough to pay to watch this garbage.

I assure you that "bashing buttons" like you said on an mpc takes practice like a real instrument does. Please do not disrespect Hiphop as it is a genre like anyother

well i hope your talking about me and not shadow, cut chemist and numark.. cos if not - thats blashemy!!!! I can read 'real' music, and have played guitar for over 14 years and piano for nearly 10!! and i think if you actually took the time to listen to the artists listed above's music you'll find it much more musical than most of the garbage thats around on the radio today..

lol @ 'start with the recorder' haha..


for those that were digging my vid check come new stuff on youtube if you get a sec:

If that's the dude 'messin' around', woah! If he'd record that piece, I'd purchase..
