Blk Tea – For You and Sophie Bipp (Remix) Blk Tea is a recently formed group of producers from Southern California that I am proud to be associated with. Over the past few months we have been creating music non-stop – and today is the official release day for our first two songs. A lot of work has gone into this music and I’m excited to share our new projects with you. The first song is called “For You.” It is a hybrid remix of both “The Glow of Love” by Change ft. Luther Vandross – and “All for You” by Janet Jackson. The song is a midtempo filtered hip hop track that we hope would be a good addition to your summertime playlist.
Next is the remix we did of Sophie’s song “Bipp“. The original song is uptempo and pitched up. We took original, slowed and pitched the samples down, and used them to create a chilled out hip hop remix. Give them a listen! You can find the downloadable mp3′s here Blk Tea on Soundcloud.
The Creators Project recently caught up with Dillon Francis and Diplo to discuss the origins and growth of the relatively new electronic sub-genre Moombahton. A hybrid of various genres, Moombahton has no immediate predecessor. Is it down-tempo Dutch House or Electronic Reggaeton? You be the judge. There is no clear definition yet the mass appeal and “freshness” of the new sound are creating waves in the EDM community.
Articulation will be a music post/blog dedicated to the discovery of new and inspiring musical compositions. As a songwriter and producer, I am constantly searching for the latest musical arrangement and production techniques. With the intent to help expose new production methods and ideas, the purpose of Articulation will be to share truly original compositions that are at the creative forefront of their genres.
To start off, here are a series songs that I have recently found to be creatively relevant to modern production techniques.
This is the Craft’s interview with DJ/Producer Kaskade. In the short documentary Kaskade discusses his beginnings as a nightclub DJ in Salt Lake City and his transition into music production and songwriting.

We are currently working with a number of independent artists and musicians on music to be released at the Winter Music Conference 2010. For information please visit www.44beats.com
