    Showcase - April 22-28, 2019

    That intro is so contrasting to the beat, but transitions so well. Interesting. The main vibe is extremely laid back, and has a good feel to it. this is sick...nice classic sample sound. I hear a lot of people talk about making beats to rap over, and needing them to be simple, but I always...

    Apollo Brown Makes All of His Beats with 20-Year-Old Software

    Cool Edit Pro...I mean, it has the best slicing capability I have yet to see replicated in a DAW. I believe they got bought out by Adobe, and is now Audition? I wonder if it can still slice those perfect samples.

    Hi! I've been making beats for around 16 years. I got started because I wanted to be a rapper, and didn't know how to obtain beats, so I decided to make my own. I went through a bout of depression and stopped making music for a while, but I'm back now trying to rebrand. Not really rapping as...
