on the new FUNKTION ONE SOUNDSYSTEM
+ liveset by DIRK LEYERS
Every music producer knows the score: one can tinker away at a track for all eternity but it lacks something vital, and one still doesn't quite know what. Is the sound right? Does the arrangement work? How will the tune work on the dance floor? What will my buddies think of it? When is the track really complete? These are the questions to be answered at CDR.
The evening will kick off with insights into the production techniques of artist AYBEE.Emerging in 2001, AYBEE has spent more than a decade gathering respect from all corners of the Electronic music spectrum. Armed with a distinct sound that some say meshes the drum of urban intensity with the ethereal sentiments of a Zen Temple, AYBEE has carved a niche for all things soul, and electronic. Releasing music under a wide range of monikers (Orion 70, Afrobatik, o1o, Lamaj, Bla Kula, Prof Delacroix) AYBEE’s versatility is genre defiant. Seamlessly weaving through Soul, Techno, House, and Hip-Hop.
Next up we are looking forward to talk to Robot Koch. Although he has an international reputation as being “One of Europe`s finest producers of the beat generation“ (Low End Theory), he is much more than just a beatmaker. Hailing from Berlin, Robot Koch released three albums and 2 EPs since 2009 (on Project Mooncircle) and toured internationally, playing shows and festivals in the US and all over Europe. Koch is also the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed band Jahcoozi (BPitch Control) and works as a producer and composer for both indie and major artists worldwide.
The aim of the event is not simply to give a straight lecture but to swap experiences, workshop style, in open discussion with all participants. A subsequent clubnight with previously submitted tracks will continue after the workshops. Upload your own tracks at www.cdrberlin.net and you'll get to hear them later over the Prince Charles sound system when CDR residents DJs Dirk Rumpff, John B. Savary and Tony Nwachukwu pull them together in a plausible DJ set. The respective artists' names will be displayed, if so wished, so as to facilitate immediate feedback.
