Reclaiming the Remix w/ Maschine Ep 3: Notorious B.I.G. “Who Shot Ya?” w/ Nasheim Myrick

Dubspot is proud to present Reclaiming the Remix w/ Maschine, our new video series in which music producer and Dubspot instructor Shareef Islam invites noted hip hop producers and remixers to revisit some of their classic productions using Native Instruments’ Maschine and create custom setups for performance in a live setting.

In this episode of Reclaiming the Remix, hip hop producer Nashiem Myrick of The Hitmen, a production collective formed by Bad Boy Records label boss and producer Sean John Combs (a.k.a Puff Daddy, Diddy, P. Diddy, etc.) stops by Dubspot for a lesson on Native Instruments’ Maschine with instructor Shareef Islam. Nashiem has collaborated and produced tracks for artists including The Notorious B.I.G., Scarface, Puff Daddy, Ma$e, Capone-N-Noriega, Mary J. Blige, 112, and more, but the track he is most associated with is The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya?”, the controversial b-side to the 1995 hit single “Big Poppa”.

Nashiem talks to Shareef about the production and recording process for “Who Shot Ya?” which samples David Porter’s “I’m Afraid The Masquerade Is Over” and features additional drums from Poke from The Trackmasters. Shareef explains and shows the intuitive features of Maschine, offering tips and techniques for working with samples and composing with the software and hardware. He also recreates and performs a live remix of “Who Shot Ya?”.
