Learn how to take your boom bap drum sound to the next level with these dubstep drum layering techniques! It's time to bring the golden era of hip hop back!
Boom Bap is awesome. And true hip hop in my eyes. But somehow, I feel like the New York grimey style has had difficulties passing the test of time. Nowadays, NY lyricists rap over trap beats. Of course, sampling legal battles took a huge toll on the art form.
These days, I truly feel like some of the best producers and engineers come from the EDM world. People like Skrillex, Flume and Madeon do things with a computer today that are simply mind-boggling.
