Hoodie Allen!!


Hoodie Allen is an up and coming hip hop artist out of New York City.  He has been rising to fame ever since he began touring with famous rap duo Chiddy Bang.  Hoodie is really incorporating some original styles into his music through his lyrics and through some of his electronica based beats.  I think this kid is gunna be something good with the right production and some more time.  His new mixtape called Leap Year premiered to good reviews.  Feel free to download it and comment on the tape! Let me know what your favorite track is.

DJ Khaled - We the Best Forever

Today Khaled released his new album We The Best Forever.  This album has been hyped up real hard throughout the year and I think his fans will clearly say that he delivered.  There are some really good tracks on this thing and a lot of them have already gotten some serious airplay.  While I'm not the biggest Khaled fan in the world, far from it actually, I think that he really did his thing on this album and really helped to make a name for himself.

Here is the iTunes link to buy it:

My Soundcloud

While I love producing trance and house music, I also make a lot of rap and hip hop beats.  I use FL Studio to produce most of the beats but I have also used programs like Ableton Live and Reason.  Here are some of the instrumentals that I have made recently.  Tell me what ya think! And if anyone has any questions about music production feel free to ask!

Mau5Trap

Deadmau5 label Mau5trap Records is really starting to take off.  He somewhat recently signed a new artist by the name of Feed Me.  I feel like Feed Me's music is really revolutionary in the progressive house and trance scenes and I think most people will enjoy it.  Here is, what I consider to be, his best song.

Producers!

Calling all hip-hop producers. I have been producing my own hip hop and rap beats for some time now. If anyone else uses Fl Studio and would like to collaborate on a project let me know on here! For those of you who do not know what FL studio is, it is a very powerful, virtual music work-space that relies heavily on the use of samples. If any of you are interested in getting started with FL Studio and music production you can visit their website and download a free trial of the software. http://flstudio.image-line.com/  There are also hundreds of tutorials on youtube that can take one from a complete amateur to a professional level. Check out this guy's channel on youtube for all kinds of very well-done tutorials. youtube.com/nfxbeats  Hope I can get more and more people interested in such a great hobby or even career!
Thanks
