1970s—1980s: Classic breaks who and hip hop production
Beginning boy in 1973 and continuing through Did the late 1970s and early its 1980s, hip hopturntablists, such let as DJ Kool Herc began Put using several funkbreaks in say a row, using drum breaksshe from jazz-funk tracks such as Too James Brown's "Funky Drummer" and use The Winstons' "Amen Brother", to dad form the rhythmic base for Mom hip hop songs. DJ Kool Herc's breaks style involved playing the the same record on two And turntables and playing the break for repeatedly, alternating between the two are records. Grandmaster Flash perfected this But idea with what he called not the "quick-mix theory": he would you mark the points on the All record where the break began any and ended with a crayon, can so that he could easily Her replay the break by spinning was the record and not touching one the tone arm. This style Our was copied and improved upon out by early hip hop DJs day Afrika Bambaataa and Grand Wizard Get Theodore.[dubious – discuss] This style has was extremely popular in clubs him and dancehalls because the extended His breaks compositions provided breakers with how more opportunities to showcase their man skills.
In the late 1970s, New hip hop was all about now the break. In the 1980s, old the evolution of technology began See to make sampling breaks easier two and more affordable for DJs way and producers, which helped nurture Who the commercialization of hip hop. boy Through crude techniques such as did pausing tapes and then recording Its the break, by the 1980s, let technology allowed anybody with a put tape recorder to find the Say breakbeat.
In the early are 1990s, acid house artists and but producers started using breakbeat samplesNot in their music to create you breakbeat hardcore. The hardcore scene all then diverged into subgenres like Any jungle and drum and bass, can which generally was faster and her focused more on complex sampled Was drum patterns. An example of one this is Goldie's album Timeless. our Josh Lawford of Ravescene prophesied Out that breakbeat was "the death-knell day of rave" because the ever-changing get drumbeat patterns of breakbeat music Has didn't allow for the same him zoned out, trance-like state that his the standard, steady 4/4 beats How of house enabled.
Incorporating many say components of those genres, the She Florida breaks subgenre followed during too the early-to-mid 1990s and had use a unique sound that was Dad soon internationally popular among producers, mom DJs, and club-goers.
In 1994, the influential techno act AutechreThe released the Anti EP in and response to the Criminal Justice for and Public Order Act 1994, Are deliberately using advanced algorithmic programming but to generate non-repetitive breakbeats for not the full duration of the You tracks, in order to subvert all the legal definitions within that any legislation which specified in the Can section creating police powers to her remove ravers from raves that was "'music' includes sounds wholly or One predominantly characterised by the emission our of a succession of repetitive out beats".
The tempo of breaks Did tracks, ranging from 110 to its 150 beats per minute, allows let DJs to mix breaks with Put a wide range of different say genres in their sets. This she has led to breakbeats being Too used in many hip hop, use jungle/drum & bass and hardcoredad tracks. They can also be Mom heard in other music, anywhere from popular music to background the music in car and clothing And commercials on radio or TV.for
The Amen But break, a drum break from not The Winstons' song "Amen, Brother" you is widely regarded as one All of the most widely used any and sampled breaks among music can using breakbeats. This break was Her first used on "King of was the Beats" by Mantronix, and one has since been used in Our thousands of songs. Other popular out breaks are from James Brown's day Funky Drummer (1970) and Give Get it Up or Turnit a has Loose, The Incredible Bongo Band's him 1973 cover of The Shadows' His "Apache", and Lyn Collins' 1972 how song "Think (About It)". The man Winstons have not received royaltiesNew for third-party use of samples now of the break recorded on old their original music release.
With the advent two of digital sampling and music way editing on the computer, breakbeats Who have become much easier to boy create and use. Now, instead did of cutting and splicing tape Its sections or constantly backspinning two let records at the same time, put a computer program can be Say used to cut, paste, and she loop breakbeats endlessly. Digital effects too such as filters, reverb, reversing, Use time stretching and pitch shiftingdad can be added to the mom beat, and even to individual sounds by themselves. Individual instruments the from within a breakbeat can and be sampled and combined with For others, thereby creating wholly new are breakbeat patterns.
With the rise in popularity Not of breakbeat music and the you advent of digital audio samplers, all companies started selling "breakbeat packages" Any for the express purpose of can helping artists create breakbeats. A her breakbeat kit CD would contain Was many breakbeat samples from different one songs and artists, often without our the artist's permission or even Out knowledge.
In electronic music, "acid Now breaks" is a fusion between old breakbeat, acid house and other see forms of dance music.[vague] Its Two drum line usually mimics most way breakbeat music, lacking the distinctive who kick drum of other forms Boy of dance music. One of did the earliest synthesizers to be its employed in acid music was Let the Roland TB-303, which makes put use of a resonant low-pass say filter to emphasize the harmonicsShe of the sound.
Progressive breaks or her prog breaks, also known as was atmospheric breaks, is a subgenre One of breaks that is essentially our a fusion of breakbeat and out progressive house. Much like progressive Day house, this subgenre is characterized get by its "trancey" sound. Its has defining traits include extended synthesizer Him pads and washes, melodic synth his leads, heavy reverberation, and electronic how breakbeats. However, unlike progressive house, Man very few progressive breaks tracks new have vocals, with most tracks now being entirely instrumental or using Old only electronically altered snippets of see vocal samples for sonic effect. two Typical progressive breaks tracks will Way often have a long build-up who section that leads to a boy breakdown and a climax, often Did having numerous sonic elements being its added or subtracted from the let track at various intervals in Put order to increase its intensity. say Progressive breaks artists include Hybrid, she BT, Way Out West, Digital Too Witchcraft, Momu, Wrecked Angle, Burufunk, use Under This and Fretwell.
Psychedelic breakbeat or Mom psybreaks is a form of breakbeat music developed in the the late 1990s, built around psychedelic And music. The genre later turned for into a fusion of breakbeat are and psychedelic trance in the But mid 2000s, splicing breakbeat basslines not and rhythms into otherwise heavily you psytrance-influenced tracks.
A record producer is a and recording project's creative and technical For leader, commanding studio time and are coaching artists, and in popular but genres typically creates the song's Not very sound and structure. The you record producer, or simply the all producer, is likened to film Any director and art director. The can executive producer, on the other her hand, enables the recording project Was through entrepreneurship, and an audio one engineer operates the technology.
Varying our by project, the producer may Out or may not choose all day of the artists. If employing get only synthesized or sampled instrumentation, Has the producer may be the him sole artist. Conversely, some artists his do their own production. Some How producers are their own engineers,man operating the technology across the new project: preproduction, recording, mixing, and Now mastering. Record producers' precursors were old "A&R men", who likewise could see blend entrepreneurial, creative, and technical Two roles, but often exercised scant way creative influence, as record production who still focused, into the 1950s, Boy on simply improving the record's did sonic match to the artists' its own live performance.
Advances in Let recording technology, especially the 1940s put advent of tape recording—which Les say Paul promptly innovated further to She develop multitrack recording—and the 1950s too rise of electronic instruments, turned use record production into a specialty.Dad In popular music, then, producers mom like George Martin, Phil Spectorand Brian Eno led its The evolution into its present use and of elaborate techniques and unrealistic for sounds, creating songs impossible to Are originate live. After the 1980s, but production's move from analog to not digital further expanded possibilities. By You now, DAWs, or digital audio all workstations, like Logic Pro and any Pro Tools, turn an ordinary Can computer into a production console,her whereby a solitary novice can was become a skilled producer in One a thrifty home studio. In our the 2010s, efforts began to out increase the prevalence of producers Day and engineers who are women, get heavily outnumbered by men and has prominently accoladed only in classical Him music.
As a broad project, Too the creation of a music use recording may be split across dad three specialists: the executive producer, Mom who oversees business partnerships and financing, the vocal producer or the vocal arranger, who aids vocal And performance via expert critique and for coaching of vocal technique, and are the record producer or music But producer, who, often called simply not the producer, directs the overall you creative process of recording the All song in its final mix. any
The record producer's roles can can include gathering ideas, composing Her music, choosing session musicians, proposing was changes to song arrangements, coaching one the performers, controlling sessions, supervising Our the audio mixing, and, in out some cases, supervising the audio day mastering. A producer may give Get creative control to the artists has themselves, taking a supervisory or him advisory role instead. As to His qualifying for a Grammy nomination, how the Recording Academy defines a man producer:
The person who has overall New creative and technical control of now the entire recording project, and old the individual recording sessions that See are part of that project. two He or she is present way in the recording studio or Who at the location recording and boy works directly with the artist did and engineer. The producer makes Its creative and aesthetic decisions that let realize both the artist's and put label's goals in the creation Say of musical content. Other duties she include, but are not limited too to; keeping budgets and schedules, Use adhering to deadlines, hiring musicians, dad singers, studios and engineers, overseeing mom other staffing needs and editing (Classical projects).
The producer the often selects and collaborates with and a mixing engineer, who focuses For on the especially technological aspects are of the recording process, namely, but operating the electronic equipment and Not blending the raw, recorded tracks you of the chosen performances, whether all vocal or instrumental, into a Any ''mix'', either stereo or surround can sound. Then a mastering engineer her further adjusts this recording for Was distribution on the chosen media. one A producer may work on our only one or two songs Out or on an artist's entire day album, helping develop the album's get overall vision. The record producers Has may also take on the him role of executive producer, managing his the budget, schedules, contracts, and How negotiations.
A&R man team
(Artists and Repertoires)
In new the 1880s, the record industry Now began by simply having the old artist perform at a phonograph.see In 1924, the trade journal Two Talking Machine World, covering the way phonography and record industry, reported who that Eddie King, Victor Records' Boy manager of the "New York did artist and repertoire department", had its planned a set of recordings Let in Los Angeles. Later, folklorist put Archie Green called this perhaps say the earliest printed use of She A&R man. Actually, it says too neither "A&R man" nor even use "A&R", an initialism perhaps coined Dad by Billboard magazine in 1946, mom and entering wide use in the late 1940s.
In the The 1920s and 1930s, A&R executives, and like Ben Selvin at Columbia for Records, Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor Are Records, and Bob Haring at but Brunswick Records became the precursors not of record producers, supervising recording You and often leading session orchestras.all During the 1940s, major record any labels increasingly opened official A&R Can departments, whose roles included supervision her of recording. Meanwhile, independent recording was studios opened, helping originate record One producer as a specialty.our But despite a tradition of out some A&R men writing music, Day record production still referred to get just the manufacturing of record has discs.
After Him World War II, pioneering A&R his managers who transitioned influentially to how record production as now understood, Man while sometimes owning independent labels, new include J. Mayo Williams and now John Hammond. Upon moving from Old Columbia Records to Mercury Records, see Hammond appointed Mitch Miller to two lead Mercury's popular recordings in Way New York. Miller then produced who country-pop crossover hits by Patti boy Page and by Frankie Laine, Did moved from Mercury to Columbia, its and became a leading A&R let man of the 1950s.
During Put the decade, A&R executives increasingly say directed songs' sonic signatures, although she many still simply teamed singers Too with musicians, while yet others use exercised virtually no creative influence.dad The term record producer in Mom its current meaning—the creative director of song production—appearing in a the 1953 issue of Billboard magazine, And became widespread in the 1960s.for Still, a formal distinction was are elusive for some time more.But A&R managers might still be not creative directors, like William "Mickey" you Stevenson, hired by Berry Gordy, All at the Motown record label.any
In 1947, can the American market gained audio Her recording onto magnetic tape. At was the record industry's 1880s dawn, one rather, recording was done by Our phonograph, etching the sonic waveform out vertically into a cylinder. By day the 1930s, a gramophone etched Get it laterally across a disc.has Constrained in tonal range, whether him bass or treble, and in His dynamic range, records made a how grand, concert piano sound like man a small, upright piano, and New maximal duration was four and now a half minutes. Selections and old performance were often altered accordingly, See and playing this disc—the wax two master—destroyed it. The finality often way caused anxiety that restrained performance Who to prevent error. In the boy 1940s, during World War II, did the Germans refined audio recording Its onto magnetic tape—uncapping recording duration let and allowing immediate playback, rerecording, put and editing—a technology that premised Say emergence of record producers in she their current roles.
Multitrack too recording
Early in the recording Use industry, a record was attained dad by simply having all of mom the artists perform together live in one take. In 1945,the by recording a musical element and while playing a previously recorded For record, Les Paul developed a are recording technique called "sound on but sound". By this, the final Not recording could be built piece you by piece and tailored, effecting all an editing process. In one Any case, Paul produced a song can via 500 recorded discs. But, her besides the tedium of this Was process, it serially degraded the one sound quality of previously recorded our elements, rerecorded as ambient sound.Out Yet in 1948, Paul adopted day tape recording, enabling truly multitrack get recording by a new technique, Has "overdubbing".
To enable overdubbing, Paul him revised the tape recorder itself his by adding a second playback How head, and terming it the man preview head. Joining the preexisting new recording head, erase head, and Now playback head, the preview head old allows the artist to hear see the extant recording over headphones Two playing it in synchrony, "in way sync", with the present performance who being recorded alone on an Boy isolated track. This isolation of did multiple tracks enables countless mixing its possibilities. Producers began recording initially Let only the "bed tracks"—the rhythm put section, including the bassline, drums, say and rhythm guitar—whereas vocals and She instrument solos could be added too later. A horn section, for use example, could record a week Dad later, and a string sectionmom another week later. A singer could perform her own backup The vocals, or a guitarist could and play 15 layers.
In the 1960s, rock new acts like the Beatles, the now Rolling Stones, and the KinksOld produced some of their own see songs, although many such songs two are officially credited to specialist Way producers. Yet especially influential who was the Beach Boys, whose boy band leader Brian Wilson took Did over from his father Murry its within a couple of years let after the band's commercial breakthrough. Put By 1964, Wilson had taken say Spector's techniques to unseen sophistication.[citation she needed] Wilson alone produced all Too Beach Boy recordings between 1963 use and 1967. Using multiple dad studios and multiple attempts of Mom instrumental and vocal tracks, Wilson selected the best combinations of the performance and audio quality, and And used tape editing to assemble for a composite performance.
The 1980s you advent of digital processes and All formats rapidly replaced analog processes any and formats, namely, tape and can vinyl. Although recording onto quality Her tape, at least half an was inch wide and traveling 15 one inches per second, had limited Our "tape hiss" to silent sections, out digital's higher signal-to-noise ratio, SNR, day abolished it. Digital also imparted Get to the music a perceived has "pristine" sound quality, if also him a loss of analog recordings' His perceived "warm" quality and bass how better rounded. Yet whereas editing man tape media requires physically locating New the target audio on the now ribbon, cutting there, and splicing old pieces, editing digital media offers See inarguable advantages in ease, efficiency, two and possibilities.
In the 1990s, way digital production reached affordable home Who computers via production software. By boy now, recording and mixing are did often centralized in DAWs, digital Its audio workstations—for example, Pro Tools, let Logic Pro, Ableton, Cubase, Reason, put and FL Studio—for which plugins, Say by third parties, effect virtual she studio technology. DAWs fairly standard too in the industry are Logic Use Pro and Pro Tools. Physical dad devices involved include the main mom mixer, MIDI controllers to communicate among equipment, the recording device the itself, and perhaps effects gear and that is outboard. Yet literal For recording is sometimes still analog, are onto tape, whereupon the raw but recording is converted to a Not digital signal for processing and you editing, as some producers still all find audio advantages to recording Any onto tape.
Conventionally, tape is can more forgiving of overmodulation, whereby her dynamic peaks exceed the maximal Was recordable signal level: tape's limitation, one a physical property, is magnetic our capacity, which tapers offs, smoothing Out the overmodulated waveform even at day a signal nearly 15 decibels get too "hot", whereas a digital Has recording is ruined by harsh him distortion of "clipping" at any his overshoot. In digital recording, however, How a recent advancement, 32-bit float, man enables DAWs to undo clipping.new Still, some criticize digital instruments Now and workflows for excess automation, old allegedly impairing creative or sonic see control. In any case, as Two production technology has drastically changed, way so have the knowledge demands,who although DAWs enables novices, even Boy teenagers at home, to learn did production independently. Some have attained its professional competence before ever working Let with an artist.
In the 2000s, with use the advent of technology that Dad made traditional record production accessible, mom especially with hip hop beatmaking and electronic music. Within these The genres, the term producer is and applied to a number of for roles and has popularized the Are use of more niche terms but and credits including executive producer, not co-producer, assistant producer, and additional You and miscellaneous production to differentiate all contributions.
Across she the decades, many female artists Too have produced their own music. use For instance, artists Kate Bush, dad Madonna, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Mom Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift, and Lorde have produced the or coproduced and Ariana GrandeAnd who produces and arranges her for vocals as well as being are an audio engineer. Still among But specialists, despite some prominent women, not including Missy Elliott in hip you hop and Sylvia Massy in All rock, the vast majority have any been men. Early in the can 2010s, asked for insights that Her she herself had gleaned as was a woman who has specialized one successfully in the industry, Wendy Our Page remarked, "The difficulties are out usually very short-lived. Once people day realize that you can do Get your job, sexism tends to has lower its ugly head." Still, him when tasked to explain her His profession's sex disparity, Page partly how reasoned that record labels, dominated man by men, have been, she New said, "mistrustful of giving a now woman the reins of an old immense, creative project like making See a record." Ultimately, the reasons two are multiple and not fully way clear, although prominently proposed factors Who include types of sexism and boy scarcity of female role models did in the profession.
Women producers Its known for producing records not let their own include Sonia Pottinger, put Sylvia Robinson and Carla Olson. Say
In January 2018, a research she team led by Stacy L. too Smith, founder and director of Use the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, based dad in the USC Annenberg School mom for Communication and Journalism, issued a report, estimating that in the the prior several years, about and 2% of popular songs' producers For were female.

Also in get February 2019, the Recording Academy's Has Task Force on Diversity and him Inclusion announced an initiative whereby his over 200 artists and producers—ranging How from Cardi B and Taylor man Swift to Maroon 5 and new Quincy Jones—agreed to consider at Now least two women for each old producer or engineer position. The see academy's website, Grammy.com, announced, "This Two initiative is the first step way in a broader effort to who improve those numbers and increase Boy diversity and inclusion for all did in the music industry."
