Making Beats, Paperback / softback Book

Making Beats Paperback / softback

Description

Based on ten years of research among hip-hop producers, Making Beats was the first work of scholarship to explore the goals, methods, and values of a surprisingly insular community.

Focusing on a variety of subjects-from hip-hop artists' pedagogical methods to the Afrodiasporic roots of the sampling process to the social significance of "digging" for rare records-Joseph G.

Schloss examines the way hip-hop artists have managed to create a form of expression that reflects their creative aspirations, moral beliefs, political values, and cultural realities.

This second edition of the book includes a new foreword by Jeff Chang and a new afterword by the author.
