Knowing that everyone has their own formula and technique, I’ve always been a fan of seeing the creation process of music. With that said, the second producer highlighted in the On Deck series is Lando Beats. Hailing from Springfield, MO, this producer shows how he made the track “Neo Renaissance” for Philly rising star Ryshon Jones from his “Brightest Nights, Darkest Days” album. His preference of production are FL Studio & various MIDI controllers.
“When Ryshon started his Brightest Nights, Darkest Days mixtape, I wanted
him to describe the exact sound he was looking for out of me since I do
sample free beats as well as sample beats. He said he wanted the tape to
sound like “Sigur Ros meets Marvin Gaye”. I’d never heard of Sigur Ros, so
I downloaded their discography and did some digging. Then I found a way to
give the Ryshon what he wanted. I made Sigur Ros meet Marvin Gaye on the
same beat… literally.”- Lando Beats
