Here comes yet another single from the seemingly endless, yet consistently dope, All City Records producer series. This time the single is coming from Mike Gao, a relatively new LA beatsmith who can press buttons just as good as the rest of them. Even though “Hubris Produca” is only a minute and a half long, it packs a punch like Nate Robinson (when it comes to dunking, not necessarily overall ability). Along with the download, Mike Gao gets all you nerd producers out their excited, as he is providing a free download to his customized quantization plug-in, which I can’t really even begin to explain to you. But this is what Mike Gao has to say about it: “It locks you to quantized live (so you can play notes locked on to 4/4 16th notes), or it can be used as a novel way to approach swing (as polyrhythmic shuffle). This live quantize plugin allows you to play completely locked on 5s against 4s.” Sounds pretty cool, now make me a plug-in that makes blog posts for me so I can go sit in my bed and watch Jersey Shore re-runs all day.
Stream “Hubris Produca” here, and download the song and plug-in after the skip.
