The impact hip hop made on my life can’t be measured…
When Dilla and Kanye both were pushing unique styles of production/beatmaking, I bought a cheap Zoom MIDI drum machine and had no idea how to use it. I was wrapped up in experimenting and exploring visual arts and architecture so I didn’t have the bandwidth to do the start with music.
Years later, I finish getting licensed as an architect, have a stack of paintings and drawings to finish and I randomly started experimenting with GarageBand on my phone to and from work on the subway. Combine that with an IPad at home, a MPC, an Akai MIDI keyboard, my parents vinyl collection and that’s what it took to make Ewing Theory, a collection of instrumental tracks.
