Experimedia Mag WAVES AT NIGHT Easterndaze Friends With Both Arms Decoder Magazine FM SHADES DJ Screw: from cough syrup to full-blown fever Sometime around 1990, a young hip-hop DJ named Robert Earl Davis, Jr decided music was just too fast for his liking. Using the pitch controls on his turntables, he began slowing records to preternaturally slow speeds, augmenting his mixes with smooth cuts and slurred commentary that sounded as if delivered from beyond the grave. Davis, better known as DJ Screw, wasn't the first DJ or producer to purposely pitch down music for effect, but he preserved the glacial pace throughout his 100-minute mixtapes, developing a uniquely psychedelic, ethereal sound that would come to be known as chopped and screwed, or, simply, Screw music. Screw's emergence in his native Houston, Texas coincided with a surge there in the popularity of drank (otherwise known as "lean," "syrup" or "barre"), a mixture of prescription-strength cough syrup and soda that can create a feeling of sedated euphoria when taken in large quantities. Record labels soon came calling. Drake is an unlikely champion for that sound.

Music Blog, Music Videos, Mp3s Artist Tips - Objekt Offers Five Ways to Preserve Your Sanity and Make Your Tracks Sound Better in the Process Filed under: Gear 11/14/2013 Though he's only released a handful of 12"s, Objekt (a.k.a. TJ Hertz) is an artist who's garnered an impressive level of respect over the past few years, particularly amongst his peers. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that the Berlin-based techno producer makes great tunes; his self-titled, white-label releases caused quite a stir when they dropped in 2011, and 2012's "Cactus" b/w "Porcupine" record for the venerable Hessle Audio admirably flipped dubstep on its head while offering something truly unique. Still, the strength of Objekt's music goes beyond his ability to innovate; his tracks also sound impeccable. Some of this engineering prowess can undoubtedly be linked to his time working at Native Instuments as a developer/programmer, but it's also clear that Hertz employs an intense level of attention to detail. Monitoring level makes a difference. Everything sounds better loud. Be strict when it comes to gain staging. Treat your room.
