So THIS is how keys work.
My second single was released today “Go With it” featuring the ever talented @MNDR. I’m really happy with it and hope you guys like it too.
Support if you like it and take the song with you :)
shortydoowop asked: Hi Toki! I'm a huge admirer/supporter of your sound and am learning the ins and outs of the entertainment business. My question is, do you always practice legalities when it comes to sampling? As far as my knowledge goes, you must receive permission from the original composer, letting them know which part of the song, how many seconds and how it's being used. Do you follow these rules to avoid legal issues?
i hardly sample anymore. however, a good way to avoid legalities and work around actually using samples is to replay the melodies yourself and make changes. otherwise, yes, i’d need to get permission from whoever owns the catalogue of the artist i am sampling.
conformedtolove asked: Hello! I'm a huge fan of yours but, rather than gushing, I was hoping you could give me some advice. I'm trying to teach myself how to make beats and recently tried the fruity loops demo but it seems too meticulous and rigid. I have a synth, a good ear and I'm really hands on so, i guess, what would you say is the best recording software available for someone like me?
hmm, i never found fruity loops meticulous. in fact, it’s extremely easy to program drums on that DAW. if you are more of the “i want to play a melody and record it” type.. then go with ableton. it’s great for recording and looping.
fortunate to say i know these guys. i’m proud of them. this is quite the masterpiece.
A great new video by Bonobo for his new single on his upcoming album. The track is called “Cirrus.”
