The New Era of Hitmakers

In the process of being an artist, it all begins and ends with the song. The mystery within creating a song is strongly attached to the drum. Hence, the producer is a vital part of any song. The melody and the chorus, when synthesized with lyrics that speak to the listener, are accentuated when the production is impacting.

Hip Hop has birthed a plethora of producers ranging from Marley Marl to Dr. Dre to Rza to DJ Premier. Fans all over the world still jam to the sounds of KLC, Swizz Beats, Timbaland, Mannie Fresh, Kanye West, Daz, DJ Quick, Scott Storch, Shawty Redd, Cise, The Dungeon Family, David Banner, Donald ”XL” Robertson, Beat Doctor, Fullpack, DJ JMK, Sinista,  J Dilla, Pete Rock, Diddy, Beats By The Pound, N.O. Joe, the late Pimp C, and more.

Fast forward to now and there’s a new team of producers providing the soundtrack for urban music. With advances in technology, the new wave of hitmaking producers can add value to an artist’s career quickly on social media. With online beat sites and personal websites, great production continues to be created for urban artists. Relationships are built and this often leads to collaborations.
