Nevermind the G.O.O.D. Music co-signs. BFD that Redman, Phonte and Bilal have spots on the joint. And does it really matter that there's a loose narrative about some guy named Adam? 88-Keys' debut solo album Death of Adam is first and foremost about the MPC and sampling in the age of increasing rights restrictions. “I stay away from looping. I'll sample the part into my MPC3000, like 10 seconds of it, chop it up, spread it across the pads, truncate it, add drums, then tighten up the groove around the drums. Then, I'll work on a bass line if [the record] calls for one. My thing is, I wanna drive people to try and find the loop in my music that's pretty much nonexistent,” said 88-Keys in a recent RemixMag interview. Or, in summary: “The brains of this is the MPC3000; my entire album was produced with that machine.” Call this MPC Machine Music for the hip-hop set.
