The holidays can be hectic, especially when you’re a family man with young children and local in-laws. But I was lucky enough to find some time for myself after my wife and kids were asleep the other night to dig through my production archives and listen to some old loops I had stashed away (yes, I’m a rap artist too, or at least I used to be haha). While going through them, I found a few I thought would be cool to share as a personal introduction to a new series we’re kicking off in 2014 called Loop Library, where we ask producers to come up off some gems from their stash. Check out five of my favorite unused loops I had tucked away below. Click to Read: Loop Library with NahRight’s Stan Ipcus Previously: Sample Stories with Bob James

Go forth, © Copyright 2007 Native Instruments Maschine v1.5 update review - by Chris Cartledge - June 2009 Reviewer: Chris Cartledge • Date: August 2010 • Price: £475/$599/€575 • Link:NI Introduction When I reviewed Maschine's initial incarnation over a year ago, there was no single thing on the market that did what it did. Fast forward to today… and there still isn't. Not content, however, with carving a niche and sitting smugly inside it, Native Instruments have listened to user criticisms and suggestions and delivered a substantial update – free of charge. The result is a more impressive, mature, useful, and admittedly power hungry animal, and I've enjoyed putting Maschine 1.5 through its paces immensely.

Building a custom HTML5 video player with CSS3 and jQuery - Opera Developer Community By Ionut Colceriu Introduction The HTML5 <video> element is already supported by most modern browsers, and even IE has support announced for version 9. There are many advantages of having video embedded natively in the browser (covered in the article Introduction to HTML5 video by Bruce Lawson), so many developers are trying to use it as soon as possible. There are a couple of barriers to this that remain, most notably the problem of which codecs are supported in each browser, with a disagreement between Opera/Firefox and IE/Safari.

A rare encounter with Madlib An extended edit of the interview that first appeared in the December issue of Dazed & Confused: Madlib, one of the most prolific producers of the last 20 years, has cooked up classics for Mos Def, DOOM, Erykah Badu, J Dilla, Lootpack and Ghostface Killah, as well as diverse solo records under aliases such as Quasimoto, the Beat Konducta and Yesterdays New Quintet. His oblique approach to sampling has influenced everyone from Flying Lotus to Thom Yorke, yet the 40-year-old reckons that the world has only heard 30 per cent of his life’s work, with the rest lying unreleased on tapes and CDs in his LA studio.

CB We Opened a Record Shop June 19th, 2015 My friend 12manrambo and I just opened a small record store here in Oakland, CA. Madlib In the shop: FREDDIE GIBBS & MADLIB – PINATA | iTunes: PIÑATA Freddie Gibbs is the product of violent, drug-laden streets, but unlike most rappers with similar resumes, he brings the block to the booth without inhibition or an exaggerated rap persona. Pinata, a 17-track collaboration with producer Madlib, is the best distillation yet of his transparent approach to making music, combining stark honesty with electrifying talent as a lyricist and performer. Pinata is “a gangster Blaxploitation film on wax,” Gibbs says, and the full-length result of a process that began in 2009.
