Watch Traxman Build a Beat Live
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Veteran footwork producer and Planet-Mu affiliate Traxman recently took on Tim and Barry's 10-minute beat challenge for Don't Watch That TV, making a quick track with just a MPC and a few records at his disposal. After taking time to find some appropriate sample material, the Chicago native digs into the MPC, guiding the viewer through his process of putting together a tune as he chops up samples, programs drums, and pieces together an arrangement—all in under 10 minutes. The full video—which is part of an ongoing series of videos from Don't Watch That TV featuring Chicago-based producers—can be watched below.
