Unplugged Film Enters The Mind Of A Beatmaker

October 12, 2010

Director Joseph Kessler presents Unplugged, a short film that offers insight into the mind and creative process of a vinyl based producer/beatmaker. From auditioning stacks of vinyl to sampling, chopping, editing, and ruminating over beat construction, Unplugged cover the all too familiar process of a sample based producer

I thought the video was pretty cool. It was a little corny though LOL. It obviously wasn’t a real beatmaker creating anything. I think it captured the artform though. I know I sit around listening to records until a sound I hear jumps out at me and lights a fire under me to jump on the mpc. Sometimes I do leave in the middle of a beat and go do somethingelse untill I get the inspiration to go back to the beat and complete it. Thanks for posting this one Semantic

hilarious video, hilarious comments. I really dig the part where he gets all frustrated, cause I’ve been there so many times – just pushing buttons on the mpc, all pissed off and ready for some magic to happen. Great work.

Earth Wind Fire, I used that sample as an underlay for a beat of mine a while back. Good shit

this video really captures the artform, vinyl is kinda the easiest and hardest way to make beats i think. if u can find that right sample, right everything the beat comes out nice and quick. but thang, when u hit that little block, ughhhh…great vid, love the fatboy part…haha

I’ve said that least 422100 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

This video is hilarious, although yes it does capture the life of a beat maker and why it is so easy to get obsessed with this hobby. I don’t know about you guys but I can literally lose hours and days just working on beats and getting completely absorbed into the process!! Really neat, will pass this video along to some of my buddies, haha…

a pretty creative video. never occurred to me to make a film based on what I’m doing. But it requires a great ability that the movie becomes interesting and looks natural
