The Art of Sampling: Sylvia Robinson Produced a New Wave

The Art of Sampling: Sylvia Robinson Produced a New Wave Online

From WondaGurl to Ebonie Smith, Black women have produced award-winning pop hits. Yet they are not always household names like some of their counterparts. In Respect Her Crank!: Producing Sounds of Blackness, this changes. Award-winning producer J’Nae White facilitates multiple workshops designed to teach the art of music production, as inspired by Black women producers.

This workshop is all about music sampling, a technique used primarily in producing hip-hop music. You will learn how to identify music samples in contemporary songs and reconstruct a sample for a beat of your own while using FL StudioSampulator, and Sample Stitch. The best part is that your MIDI is the keyboard.

This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.
