Bass, Trap | LUUDE Drops VIP Edit of Booming Trap Banger, “Sooo”

Posted by on December 9, 2016

Off rip LUUDE’s new song “Sooo (VIP)” caught me off guard, but in the best way possible with it’s incredibly menacing soundscape. As it continues to evolve, it grew on me more thanks to the well placed vocal samples that are used as percussive instrumentation and once that sub kicks it this song goes to the next level in my book. While the production is very unorthodox, to me, their is still a feel-good pop flair to it at times and that’s what really resonated with me. LUUDE is a creative, forward-thinking producer who deserves more recognition and I’m calling it now in 2017 he’ll pop off because of quality music like “Sooo (VIP).” So check it out now above!

Techno | Point Blank Shares About History Of Techno Music

Posted by on November 17, 2016

Techno fans have a special treat today. The electronic music school has released a video discussing not only the history of techno music, but also production tips discussing, in detail, elements of education for the Ableton user. James Wiltshire, who has been featured talking about historical and production points with Point Blank before, uses his charming UK voice and impressive intellect to deliver a balance of history and knowledge.

Dope facts you probably didn’t know if you got into dance music this decade: Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson began to create what is now known as early Detroit Techno. Early tech-heads were influenced by the book Third Wave – I won’t give away any more interesting facts – but the video is worth the watch.

Hip-Hop | RYDEN Shares About The Deeper Message Behind “Dear God”, Her Background, Dream Collaborations & More

Posted by on October 24, 2016

RYDEN was featured on FNT a few weeks back, delivering a feeling that was different, above-average for the genre it was tapping into, and was much deeper than the messages most songs convey. We reached out to RYDEN for an exclusive interview, highlighting her background, the story being her latest single “Dear God ft. Chase Allen”, and more.

What part of your background led to focusing on production?

RYDEN: Music has always been my first love. I’ve been in music in some form or other my entire life. I started out playing classical piano when I was a kid, and then in high school I played first violin in an orchestra for 4 years. All my years after that were spent in hip hop. In college, all I did was ditch class all the time to hang out in studios and record as a singer/songwriter. Even then, I’d always looked up to producers more than any other role in the industry.
