LA On Lock is pretty much the premier place to get your Los Angeles hip-hop news. Featuring songs, mixtapes, and even hosting their own events, this blog puts LA on lockdown, but it isn’t just for those living in California — it’s for everyone and anyone who loves hip-hop. In addition to tons of interviews and features, they also host a Spotify playlist and do regular video, single, and album reviews.

It feels as if everything I’ve worked on in the last 18 years has been leading up to this moment. The pieces of the puzzle have come together, and I’m using everything I’ve learned and putting it into Muru. I want to contribute to the future of music technology and how we use Artificial Intelligence.

Believe it or not, professionalism goes a long way when it comes to booking shows or tours. If you shoot off a poorly written email with the promise of bringing 500 fans out to your first show, your email will be promptly mocked and/or deleted.

It’s a fast-paced narrative with a continuous stream of engaging footage, following a very simple, linear storyline. But it also features a mixture of performance shots of Ke$ha singing to the camera and visuals conveying her “party animal” lifestyle, which accomplishes a great branding feat as these two shots combine to solidify her creative, boundless, and wild persona to fans watching.

I tend to use a medium-to-fast release setting. I’ve heard a lot of famous mixers say they set the release with the tempo of the song. So they would watch the gain reduction needle and have it release on beat with the song. I  try my best to use this method.

Her self-produced artist project under the same name has been described as “blissful bedroom synth pop” which she creates in her adopted home of Brooklyn, New York. With St. Vincent-worthy guitar riffs that glide over pulsing ’80s drum beats, the indie-pop powerhouse has earned rave reviews from the likes of Billboard, Village Voice, and BuzzFeed. Sulene is a composer for multiple music houses including Marmoset and Squeak E Clean, she’s endorsed by Fender and Jim Dunlop, and her solo music is published through Rough Trade Publishing.

So much of today’s new technologies tend to offer (at least in marketing speak) out-of-the-box solutions to musicians’ and students’ problems. Softwares and plugins, devices and networks, are all designed to minimize the rough edges around taking the time to learn things the hard way, practice them, and interact with things and people. And while these tools are optional, and do provide new avenues for creative expression and learning, they sometimes also skip over some crucial steps in the lifelong learning process of the artist, particularly those steps that historically have happened in the classroom.

This album also did two things beyond Brown himself. First, it would help cement soul and funk as commercially viable mainstream music genres. Soul could be fun, loud, raucous and youthful; not just sentimental and romantic. Secondly, it demonstrated the power of a live album to make money, and assured record producers and labels alike that consumers would be willing to buy the same songs on two different albums if one was live.
