During the current Covid-19 crisis we’ve been hosting a series of free virtual workshops in collaboration with SAE Institute Amsterdam
With these workshops we are bringing a bunch of different music producers and artists together and putting everyone a bit out of their comfort zone by throwing them a curve ball sample pack of archival sounds. We like teaching people new things and we love hearing what you make, even if you think it’s not good (it is good!).
This week’s guest lecturer is Kamikaze Space Program. Formerly, know as Raiden, a staple in drum and bass’s progressive years in the 2000s with releases on the seminal Renegade Hardware label, he wound up dropping the Raiden moniker for KSP in the early 2010s.
Since then, KSP has traversed the lines between techno and drum and bass. Raking in releases on stalwart labels like MORD, Tresor, Mote-Evolver and Osiris Music UK. His penchant for incorporating and manipulating field recordings into tense, distraught worlds is second-to-none. For this workshop we’ll get a look inside his listening and production approach and how he incorporates the plethora of outboard gear that occupies his Berlin apartment.
The workshop will focus on the basics of sound design, turning archive field recordings into kicks, snare, synths, pads, patterns etc.
Time and Date: April 25, 12:00 CET
