Making Beats: The Art of Sample-Based Hip-Hop (Music Culture) by Joseph G. Schloss
Despite having created one of the most important musical cultures of the last fifty years, hip-hop composers who use digital sampling are rarely taken seriously as artists. But hip-hop deejays and producers have collectively developed an artistic system that features a complex aesthetic, a detailed array of social protocols, a rigorous set of ethical expectations and a rich historical consciousness. Based on ten years of research among hip-hop producers, Making Beats is the first work of scholarship to explore the goals, methods and values of this surprisingly insular community. Focusing on a variety of subjects—from hip-hop artists’ pedagogical methods to the Afro-diasporic roots of the sampling process to the social significance of “digging” for rare records.
