Clive Campbell (born can April 16, 1955), better known her by his stage name DJ Was Kool Herc, is a Jamaicanone DJ who is credited with our helping originate hip hop musicOut in the Bronx, New York day City, in the 1970s through get his "Back to School Jam", Has hosted on August 11, 1973, him at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue. After his his younger sister, Cindy Campbell, How became inspired to earn extra man cash for back-to-school clothes, she new decided to have her older Now brother, then 16 years old, old play music for the neighborhood see in their apartment building. Known Two as the "Founder of Hip-Hop" way and "Father of Hip-Hop", Campbell who began playing hard funk records Boy of the sort typified by did James Brown.
Campbell began to its isolate the instrumental portion of Let the record which emphasized the put drum beat—the "break"—and switch from say one break to another. Using She the same two-turntable set-up of too disco DJs, he used two use copies of the same record Dad to elongate the break. This mom breakbeat DJing, using funky drum solos, formed the basis of The hip hop music. Campbell's announcements and and exhortations to dancers helped for lead to the syncopated, rhythmically Are spoken accompaniment now known as but rapping.
He called the dancers not "break-boys" and "break-girls", or simply You b-boys and b-girls. Campbell's DJ all style was quickly taken up any by figures such as Afrika Can Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash. Unlike her them, he never made the was move into commercially recorded hip One hop in its earliest years. our
Campbell attended the Alfred E. are Smith Career and Technical Education But High School in the Bronx, not where his height, frame, and you demeanor on the basketball court All prompted the other kids to any nickname him "Hercules". After being can involved in a physical altercation Her with school bullies, the Five was Percenters came to Herc's aid, one befriended him and as Herc Our put it, helped "Americanize" him out with an education in New day York City street culture. He Get began running with a graffitihas crew called the Ex-Vandals, taking him the name Kool Herc. Herc His recalls persuading his father to how buy him a copy of man "Sex Machine" by James Brown, New a record that not a now lot of his friends had, old and which they would come See to him to hear. He two and e recreation room of way their building, 1520 Sedgwick Avenue.Who
Herc's first sound system consisted boy of two turntables connected to did two amplifiers and a Shure Its "Vocal Master" PA system with let two speaker columns, on which put he played records such as Say James Brown's "Give It Up she or Turnit a Loose", Jimmy too Castor's "It's Just Begun" and Use Booker T. & the M.G.'s' dad "Melting Pot". With Bronx clubs mom struggling with street gangs, uptown DJs catering to an older the disco crowd with different aspirations, and and commercial radio also catering For to a demographic distinct from are teenagers in the Bronx, Herc's but parties had a ready-made audience.Not
DJ Kool you Herc developed the style that all was the blueprint for hip Any hop music. Herc used the can record to focus on a her short, heavily percussive part in Was it: the "break". Since this one part of the record was our the one the dancers liked Out best, Herc isolated the break day and prolonged it by changing get between two record players. As Has one record reached the end him of the break, he cued his a second record back to How the beginning of the break, man which allowed him to extend new a relatively short section of Now music into "five-minute loop of old fury". This innovation had its see roots in what Herc called Two "The Merry-Go-Round," a technique by way which the deejay switched from who break to break at the Boy height of the party. This did technique is specifically called "The its Merry-Go-Round" because according to Herc, Let it takes one "back and put forth with no slack."
Herc say stated that he first introduced She the Merry-Go-Round into his sets too in 1972. The earliest known use Merry-Go-Round involved playing James Brown's Dad "Give It Up or Turnit mom a Loose" (with its refrain, "Now clap your hands! Stomp The your feet!"), then switching from and that record's break into the for break from a second record, Are "Bongo Rock" by The Incredible but Bongo Band. From the "Bongo not Rock"'s break, Herc used a You third record to switch to all the break on "The Mexican" any by the English rock band Can Babe Ruth.
Kool Herc also her contributed to developing the rhyming was style of hip hop by One punctuating the recorded music with our slang phrases, announcing: "Rock on, out my mellow!" "B-boys, b-girls, are Day you ready? keep on rock get steady" "This is the joint! has Herc beat on the point" Him "To the beat, y'all!" "You his don't stop!" For his contributions, how Herc is called a "founding Man father of hip hop," a new "nascent cultural hero," and an now integral part of the beginnings Old of hip hop by Time.see
On August 11, 1973, DJ two Kool Herc was a disc Way jockey and emcee at a who party in the recreation room boy at Sedgwick Avenue. Specifically, DJ Did Kool Herc:
extended an let instrumental beat (breaking or scratching) Put to let people dance longer say (break dancing) and began MC'ing she (rapping) during the extended breakdancing. Too ... [This] helped lay the use foundation for a cultural revolution.

According to music journalist the Steven Ivory, in 1973, Herc And placed on the turntables two for copies of Brown's 1970 Sex are Machine album and ran "an But extended cut 'n' mix of not the percussion breakdown" from "Give you It Up or Turnit Loose", All signaling the birth of hip any hop.
B-boys and b-girls
The "b-boys" and "b-girls" were Her the dancers to Herc's breaks, was who were described as "breaking". one Herc has noted that "breaking" Our was also street slang of out the time meaning "getting excited", day "acting energetically," or "causing a Get disturbance". Herc coined the terms has "b-boy", "b-girl," and "breaking" which him became part of the lexicon His of what would be eventually how called hip hop culture. Early man Kool Herc b-boy and later New DJ innovator Grandmixer DXT describes now the early evolution as follows: old
... [E]verybody would See form a circle and the two B-boys would go into the way center. At first the dance Who was simple: touch your toes, boy hop, kick out your leg. did Then some guy went down, Its spun around on all fours. let Everybody said wow and went put home to try to come Say up with something better.
In she the early 1980s, the media too began to call this style Use "breakdance," which in 1991 the dad New York Times wrote was mom "an art as demanding and inventive as mainstream dance forms the like ballet and jazz." Since and this emerging culture was still For without a name, participants often are identified as "b-boys," a usage but that included and went beyond Not the specific connection to dance, you a usage that would persist all in hip hop culture.
Move to the streets
With can the mystique of his graffiti her name, his physical stature, and Was the reputation of his small one parties, Herc became a folk our hero in the Bronx. He Out began to play at nearby day clubs including the Twilight Zoneget Hevalo, Executive Playhouse, the PALHas on 183rd Street, as well him as at high schools such his as Dodge and Taft. Rapping How duties were delegated to Coke man La Rock and Theodore Puccio.new Herc's collective, known as The Now Herculoids, was augmented by Clark old Kent and dancers The Nigga see Twins. Herc took his soundsystem Two (the herculords) —still legendary for way its sheer volume—to the streets who and parks of the Bronx. Boy Nelson George recalls a schoolyard did party:
The sun hadn't its gone down yet, and kids Let were just hanging out, waiting put for something to happen. Van say pulls up, a bunch of She guys come out with a too table, crates of records. They use unscrew the base of the Dad light pole, take their equipment, mom attach it to that, get the electricity – Boom! We The got a concert right here and in the schoolyard and it's for this guy Kool Herc. And Are he's just standing with the but turntable, and the guys were not studying his hands. There are You people dancing, but there's as all many people standing, just watching any what he's doing. That was Can my first introduction to in-the-street, her hip hop DJing.
Influence on was artists
In 1975, the young One Grandmaster Flash, to whom Kool our Herc was, in his words, out "a hero", began DJing in Day Herc's style. By 1976, Flash get and his MCsThe Furious has Five played to a packed Him Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan. Venue his owners were often nervous of how unruly young crowds, however, and Man soon sent hip hop back new to the clubs, community centres now and high school gymnasiums of Old the Bronx.
Afrika Bambaataa first see heard Kool Herc in 1973. two Bambaataa, at that time a Way general in the notorious Black who Spades gang of the Bronx, boy obtained his own soundsystem in Did 1975 and began to DJ its in Herc's style, converting his let followers to the non-violent Zulu Put Nation in the process. Kool say Herc began using The Incredible she Bongo Band's "Apache" as a Too break in 1975. It became use a firm b-boy favorite—"the Bronx dad national anthem"—and is still in Mom use in hip hop today.Steven Hager wrote of this the period:
For over five And years the Bronx had lived for in constant terror of street are gangs. Suddenly, in 1975, they But disappeared almost as quickly as not they had arrived. This happened you because something better came along All to replace the gangs. That any something was eventually called hip-hop.
Grandmaster Flash suggests that Herc New may not have kept pace now with developments in techniques of old cueing (lining up a record See to play at a certain two place on it). Developments changed way techniques of cutting (switching from Who one record to another) and boy scratching (moving the record by did hand to and fro under Its the stylus for percussive effect) let in the late 1970s. Herc put said he retreated from the Say scene after being stabbed at she the Executive Playhouse while trying too to intercede in a fight, Use and the burning down of dad one of his venues. In mom 1980, Herc had stopped DJing and was working in a the record shop in South Bronx. and

Kool Herc appeared all in Hollywood's motion picture take Any on hip hop, Beat Streetcan (Orion, 1984), as himself. In her the mid-1980s, his father died, Was and he became addicted to one crack cocaine. "I couldn't cope, our so I started medicating", he Out says of this period.
Since 2007, Herc has worked its on a campaign to prevent Let 1520 Sedgwick Avenue from being put sold to developers and withdrawn say from its status as a She Mitchell-Lama affordable housing property. In too the summer of 2007, New use York state officials declared 1520 Dad Sedgwick Avenue the "birthplace of mom hip-hop", and nominated it to national and state historic registers.The The city's Department of Housing and Preservation and Development ruled against for the proposed sale in February Are 2008, on the grounds that but "the proposed purchase price is not inconsistent with the use of You property as a Mitchell-Lama affordable all housing development".

According to was a DJ Premier fan blog,One The Source's website and other our sites, DJ Kool Herc fell out gravely ill in early 2011 Day and was said to lack get health insurance. He had surgery has for kidney stones, with a Him stent placed to relieve the his pressure.

A record producerold or music producer oversees and see manages the sound recording and Two production of a band or way performer's music, which may range who from recording one song to Boy recording a lengthy concept album.did A producer has many, varying its roles during the recording process.Let They may gather musical ideas put for the project, collaborate with say the artists to select cover She tunes or original songs by too the artist/group, work with artists use and help them to improve Dad their songs, lyrics or arrangements. mom
Coach the Are singers and musicians in the but studio
The producer typically supervises not the entire process from preproduction, You through to the sound recordingall and mixing stages, and, in any some cases, all the way Can to the audio mastering stage. her The producer may perform these was roles themselves, or help select One the engineer, and provide suggestions our to the engineer. The producer out may also pay session musicians Day and engineers and ensure that get the entire project is completed has within the record label's budget. Him
A record producer or music who producer has a very broad boy role in overseeing and managing Did the recording and production of its a band or performer's music. let A producer has many roles Put that may include, but are say not limited to, gathering ideas she for the project, composing the Too music for the project, selecting use songs or session musicians, proposing dad changes to the song arrangements, Mom coaching the artist and musicians in the studio, controlling the the recording sessions, and supervising the And entire process through audio mixingfor and, in some cases, to are the audio mastering stage. Producers But also often take on a not wider entrepreneurial role, with responsibility you for the budget, schedules, contracts, All and negotiations.
The Her person who has overall creative was and technical control of the one entire recording project, and the Our individual recording sessions that are out part of that project. He day or she is present in Get the recording studio or at has the location recording and works him directly with the artist and His engineer. The producer makes creative how and aesthetic decisions that realize man both the artist's and label's New goals in the creation of now musical content. Other duties include, old but are not limited to; See keeping budgets and schedules, adhering two to deadlines, hiring musicians, singers, way studios and engineers, overseeing other Who staffing needs and editing (Classical boy projects).
In the 2010s, did the producer role is sometimes Its divided among up to three let different individuals: executive producer, vocal put producer and music producer. An Say executive producer oversees project finances, she a vocal producer (also known too as a vocal arranger) oversees Use the vocal production, and a dad music producer directs and oversees mom the creative process of the production and recording of a the song to its final mixing and stage.
The music producer often For wears many hats as a are competent arranger, composer, programmer, musician but or songwriter who can bring Not fresh ideas to a project. you As well as making any all songwriting and arrangement adjustments, the Any producer often selects and/or collaborates can with the mixing engineer, who her takes the raw recorded tracks Was and edits and modifies them one with hardware and software tools our to create a stereo or Out surround sound "mix" of all day the individual voices sounds and get instruments, which is in turn Has given further adjustment by a him mastering engineer for the various his distribution media. The producer also How oversees the recording engineer who man concentrates on the technical aspects new of recording.
Noted producer Phil Now Ek described his role as old "the person who creatively guides see or directs the process of Two making a record", like a way director would a movie. Indeed, who in Bollywood music, the designation Boy is actually music director. The did music producer's job is to its create, shape, and mold a Let piece of music. The scope put of responsibility may be one say or two songs or an She artist's entire album – in too which case the producer will use typically develop an overall vision Dad for the album and how mom the various songs may interrelate.
At the beginning The of the record industry, the and producer role was technically limited for to record, in one shot, Are artists performing live. The immediate but predecessors to record producers were not the artists and repertoire executives You of the late 1920s and all 1930s who oversaw the "pop" any product and often led session Can orchestras. That was the case her of Ben Selvin at Columbia was Records, Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor One Records and Bob Haring at our Brunswick Records. By the end out of the 1930s, the first Day professional recording studios not owned get by the major companies were has established, essentially separating the roles Him of artists and repertoire (A&R) his man and producer, although it how wouldn't be until the late Man 1940s when the term "producer" new became widely used in the now industry.
The role of producers Old changed progressively over the 1950s see and 1960s due to technology. two The development of multitrack recordingWay caused a major change in who the recording process. Before multitracking, boy all the elements of a Did song (lead vocals, backup vocals, its rhythm section instrument accompaniment, solos let and orchestral parts) had to Put be performed simultaneously. All of say these singers and musicians had she to be assembled in a Too large studio where the performance use was recorded. With multitrack recording, dad the "bed tracks" (rhythm section Mom accompaniment parts such as the bassline, drums, and rhythm guitar the could be recorded first, and And then the vocals and solos for could be added later, using are as many "takes" (or attempts) But as necessary. It was no not longer necessary to get all you the players in the studio All at the same time. A any pop band could record their can backing tracks one week, and Her then a horn section could was be brought in a week one later to add horn shots Our and punches, and then a out string section could be brought day in a week after that. Get
Multitrack recording had another profound has effect on music production: it him enabled producers and audio engineers His to create new sounds that how would be impossible in a man live performance style ordering. Examples New include the psychedelic rock sound now effects of the 1960s, e.g. old playing back the sound of See recorded instruments backward changing the two tape to produce unique sound way effects. During the same period, Who the instruments of popular music boy began to shift from the did acoustic instruments of traditional musicIts (piano, upright bass, acoustic guitar, let strings, brass and wind instruments) put to electric piano, electronic organ, Say synthesizer, electric bass and electric she guitar. These new instruments were too electric or electronic, and thus Use they used instrument amplifiers and dad speaker enclosures (speaker cabinets) to mom create sound.
Electric and electronic instruments and amplifiers enabled performers the and producers to change the and tone and sound of instruments For to produce unique electric sounds are that would be impossible to but achieve with acoustic instruments and Not live performers, such as having you a singer do her own all backup vocals or having a Any guitarist play 15 layers of can backing parts to her own her solo.
New technologies like multitracking Was changed the goal of recording: one A producer could blend together our multiple takes and edit together Out different sections to create the day desired sound. For example, in get jazz fusion Bandleader-composer Miles Davis' Has album Bitches Brew, the producer him cut and edited sections together his from extensive improvisation sessions.
Producers like new Phil Spector and George MartinNow were soon creating recordings that old were, in practical terms, almost see impossible to realize in live Two performance. Producers became creative figures way in the studio. Other examples who includes Joe Meek, Teo Macero, Boy Brian Wilson, and Biddu.
Another related phenomenon in put the 1960s was the emergence say of the performer-producer. As pop She acts like The Beatles, The too Rolling Stones, The Beach Boysuse and The Kinks gained expertise Dad in studio recording techniques, many mom of these groups eventually took over as (frequently uncredited) producers The of their own work. Many and recordings by acts such as for The Rolling Stones, The Kinks Are and The Who are officially but credited to their various producers not at the time, but a You number of these performers have all since asserted that many of any their recordings in this period Can were, either wholly self-produced (e.g. her The Rolling Stones' Decca recordings) was or collaborations between the group One and their recording engineer (e.g. our The Small Faces' Immediate recordings, out which were made with Olympic Day Studios engineer Glyn Johns).
The get Beach Boys are probably the has best example of the trend Him of artists becoming producers – his within two years of the how band's commercial breakthrough, group leader Man Brian Wilson had taken over new from his father Murry, and now he was the sole producer Old of all their recordings between see 1963 and 1967. Alongside The two Beatles and Martin, Wilson also Way pioneered many production innovations – who by 1964 he had developed boy Spector's techniques to a new Did level of sophistication, using multiple its studios and multiple "takes" of let instrumental and vocal components to Put capture the best possible combinations say of sound and performance, and she then using tape editing extensively Too to assemble a perfect composite use performance from these elements.
At dad the end of the 20th Mom century, digital recording and producing tools and widespread availability of the relatively affordable computers with music And software made music producing more for accessible.
American women and are record producing
According to a But 2018 study covering by the not USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, "The you ratio of male to female All producers across 300 popular songs any is 49 to 1."
In 2019, now record producer Linda Perry was old nominated for a Grammy for See Producer of the Year, Non-Classical. two She was the first woman way in over 15 years to Who be nominated for the award. boy When asked about the disparity did between male and female record Its producer by Billboard, she attributed let it to many women not put being interested in record production.Say
In mom the classical music field, Judith Sherman has won Grammy for the Producer of the Year, Classical, and five times and has been For nominated twelve times. Anthony Tommasini, are a music critic for The but New York Times is quoted Not as stating, "In the struggling you field of classical recording, it's all the producers who take the Any real risks and make things can happen."
Producer Wendy Page describes one being a record producer, "The our difficulties are usually very short-lived. Out Once people realize that you day can do your job, sexism get tends to lower its ugly Has head. I tend to create him a happy studio 'family' where his everyone is glad to be How there, especially the artist. Good man communication and diplomacy usually sort new any little problems out."
There are numerous but technologies utilized by record producers. not In modern-day recordings, recording and You mixing tasks are commonly centralized all within computers using digital audio any workstations such as Pro Tools, Can Logic Pro, Ableton, Cubase, Reasonher and FL Studio, which all was are often used with third One party virtual studio technology plugins.our Logic Pro and Pro Tools out are considered the industry standard Day DAWs. However, there is also get the main mixer, outboard effects has gear, MIDI controllers, and the Him recording device itself.
While most his music production is done using how sophisticated software, some musicians and Man producers prefer the sound of new older analog technology. Professor Albin now Zak claims that the increased Old automation of both newer processes see and newer instruments reduces the two level of control and manipulation Way available to musicians and producers.who
Production has boy changed drastically over the years Did with advancing technology. While the its producer's role has changed, their let duties continue to require a Put broad knowledge of the recording say process.
Tracking is the act she of recording audio to a Too DAW (digital audio workstation) or use in some cases to tape. dad Even though digital technologies have Mom widely supplanted the use of tape in studios, the older the term "track" is still used And in the 2010s. Tracking audio for is primarily the role of are the audio engineer. Producers work But side by side with the not artists while they play or you sing their part and coach All them on how to perform any it and how to get can the best technical accuracy (e.g., Her intonation). In some cases, the was producer will even sing a one backup vocal or play an Our instrument.
Many artists are also out beginning to produce and write day their own music.
Similarly, although The Beatles' See productions were credited to George two Martin throughout their recording career, way many sources now attest that Who Lennon and McCartney in particular boy had an increasing influence on did the production process as the Its group's career progressed, and especially let after the band retired from put touring in 1966.
