Teddy Riley talking about K-Pop and Dangerous Music
Super producer Teddy Riley talks about the new style he's working in, K-Pop, and how he set-up shop in South Korea to work within the genre. In this Mix article he also mentions his love of Dangerous Music hardware equipment like the 2-Bus LT, Monitor ST and D-Box.
About working in Korea he says...
“I came out to Korea because there was a song that was released that I produced,” says Riley. “The company didn’t tell my team what was going on with the song, so I wound up taking a trip there, and it turned into a two-month visit. The first three weeks we were in the apartment making beats. Then we met a friend who became a partner in our company, TRX, Teddy Riley Xperience. He showed us the ropes in Korea and connected us to all the major companies, including SM Entertainment, the largest record company in Korea, maybe in all of Asia.”
When talking about the Dangerous product line he mentions...
"I can only say that the Dangerous 2-Bus is the closest thing to the analog SSL I used back in the day. That’s a real strong and prominent sound for me. Using the Dangerous gear has gotten me into that sonic landscape. The Dangerous gear is ‘Warm’ – I can make anything have ‘punch’ in the box, but I can’t make it sound warm, and that’s the thing that I get with Dangerous gear. I can also get a ‘grimy’ sound with Dangerous, and I get ‘presence’ as well. It takes me back to Dolby SR with tape where you feel the warmness of it.”

There are some gems (read awful) lyrics in this bunch, but I think Lil Wayne's are by far the best (read worst, but the best worst). Really Lil Wayne? Really??

Some very clever Christmas Trees.
I saw these very creative trees on Quora.com
so I thought I would share them with all of you. When I lived with three male roommates we made a Christmas tree out of beer cans, similar to the one in this post
. Needless to say, we were the only ones who thought it was cool.
As a musician maybe you can make a small tree out of CD jewel cases or, if you still have some around, cassette cases??
Enjoy the post!
I mastered Facts on Files upcoming album back in October with Joseph White (vocals, bass). This was a really fun project to work on. Not only because Joseph is one of the nicest artists out there, but also because the material is exactly as described by the author of the article...
"The trio crafts songs that modernize 60s garage rock and 1970s New York punk, putting a spin on pop structure that draws comparisons to Talking Heads, Gang of Four and The Cars, with hints of Suicide and a synth-free Devo."
