In this episode of Reclaiming the Remix w/ Maschine, Dubspot instructor Shareef Islam invites multi-platinum hip hop production collective Dangerous LLC to revisit their the 2007 club hit by 50 Cent, “Amusement Park“.

In the latest installment of Dubspot’s Reclaiming the Remix, music producer and Dubspot instructor Shareef Islam talks to Brooklyn-based hip hop producers Chris Styles, Silence, J Swirv, and Urkel about their early beginnings, the formation of Dangerous LLC production collective, and developing a workflow which allows individuals members of the team to cultivate their skills and grow. They also discuss about their extensive work with multi-platinum rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent, whose work ethic and diligence inspired them.

The original beat for “Amusement Park” was created using Akai MPC 2000, Korg Triton workstation/keyboard, and Avid Pro Tools. Shareef and Dangerous LLC explore the creative possibilities of using Native Instruments Maschine to recompose “Amusement Park”. Shareef recreates the beat, shows off the intuitive features of Maschine, offers tips and techniques for performing a live remix of the track.
