Introducing: Don't Make Beats Like Me

Introducing: Don't Make Beats Like Me


The New Bible of Music Production & Creativity

Don't Make Beats Like Me
is a book born from three beliefs:

1.

The most important piece of equipment in your studio is you. If you aren't working right, nothing will.

2.

Producers should NEVER waste precious time repeating the mistakes of the producers who have come before them. 

3. 

Following our dreams can be ridiculously hard. Along the way, we need mentors, knowledge, insight, and...books.

Filling The Production Gap


A More Challenging Industry Demands A Better Producer

Filling The Production Gap


A More Challenging Industry Demands A Better Producer

From beatmaker to educator of producers

Becoming a producer used to be hard enough. Now, everybody has access to the same tools. There's competition coming from every corner of the globe. And making a living from production has become extremely difficult. There's no room for error.

As I changed roles to the business side of the industry, with my perspective as a former beatmaker, I began to see dozens of producers making the same mistakes that I had once made. And sadly, many of these mistakes were internal, things that could be fixed if the right mentor was there to provide wisdom.

What’s gonna separate you from the next person nowadays? Everybody has the same amount of tools; there’s no excuse now.

Pairing my failures with the secrets of success

In the production game, we're short on mentors. I analyzed my failures to show you what not to do and interviewed several platinum-plus, grammy-winning producers to show you what to do.

With the help of Needlz, REO, Focus..., DJ Khalil, Tha Bizness, Troy Taylor, and Chuck Green, co-manager of The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, I crafted a book like no other, a book on music production that is both "how-to" and "how-not-to", a book that everyone who aspires to produce for a living needs to read.
