In the early 2000’s, Scott Storch was one of the best music producers in the music industry, particularly in the Hip-Hop and RnB genres. He had an incredible resume and boasted a host of commercial hits, thanks to his creatively melodic beats.
I recent years, Storch’s career has all but faded into obscurity due to his drug habit and fast flashly lifestyle. Nevertheless, his talent in making beats remains timeless and the video below shows you how he was able to quickly make an excellent beat, while making it seem effortless.
As you can see, Storch makes full use of his tool of choice – a Yamaha digital keyboard workstation and an MPC machine by Akai. They both provide all the instruments, drum kits and tracks he needed to make a high tempo Hip-Hop party banger.
