IKEA video marketing to DJs and Producers

I stumbled across this video on the IKEA YouTube channel. The video is called "IKEA Presents, Harry's Records. Make Room for Your Life"


Published on 4 Feb 2013
Look at how we helped Harry organise his passion for more than 4500 records and make room for his family life. If you could do with some help storing your things, maybe some of the solutions we used for Harry might help you too.

A wall of EXPEDIT shelving units to store his thousands of records

STOLMEN shoe racks to store his keyboards

KVISSLE cable management box to tame his web of cables

FÖRHÖJA cutlery tray to organise the floppy discs he wants to keep

Love this beat - "Morning Sun" by Vanilla

Stumbled upon this dope beat. Love the sample chops, the crackling vinyl, smooth drums. Makes me feel good, inspired and bounce.

Check out "Morning Sun" by Vanilla

Tips on how to record Maschine live using Audacity

I just started getting back into attempting to make beats on Maschine after not really touching the thing (on a regular) for almost a year. Because it has been awhile since I created something, I forgot how to record my live Maschine sessions using Audacity.

Part of my search brought me to this discussion string - http://www.native-instruments.com/fo...d.php?t=127593

Well I have good news for those of you are looking for different ways to record live sessions using free software such as Audacity.

I was able to find this detailed step-by-step guide on how to do it. Like I said I did it before but forgot a couple important steps. This page tells all!

All you need is Soundflower and Audacity - both are free.

I'm not very good but I was able to crank out these few beats over the past couple days:

2013 Baby! Time to wipe the dust off this...

More posts and random things to check out on the way.

Back to messing around with making beats too. Feels good! I suck but its still therapy. I love music.

All the best in 2013.

Come again.

I found out about Elaquent by surfing around on Soundcloud and Band Camp. This producer from Ottawa, Ontario makes soulful, electronic, smooth, night-cruising beats for days. I encourage you to give his music a try if you're down with beatstrumentals like I am.

You can now find him amongst a solid roster of beat producers on the Huh What & Where ("HW&H") Recordings.

Looking for a chance to see this dude live.

Check some of his tracks below.

You can find more of his tunes here:

Oh the first track that got me hooked was "Teddy Bear." Smooth - I love that bassline!
