Beats From The Web. Part four.

A global round up of beat making, showing the current status of avid MASCHINE beat makers.

This month’s Beats From The Web is dedicated to the new MASCHINE MIKRO. The long awaited follow-up is now stronger than ever and contains valuable updates and new powerful features, all housed in a sleek and classy new designed body.

Celebrating the release of the new MASCHINE MIKRO, Native Instruments is profiling the latest beatmakers, and MASCHINE-maestros on the web.


Sample-based beat making

Accurate Beats lays down one of his smooth signature hip-hop beats while explaining every step in the beat making process of using MASCHINE MIKRO. Starting off with a jazzy-piano sample, he explains the possible slicing options and moves on to add a drum groove with a boom-bap pattern. Rounding up the beat, Accurate Beats then adds a bassline and some sleek scratches for good measure.

Off-grid finger drumming

Shakazula shares a moment of some Dilla’esque finger drumming with low slung grooves, and high-pitched vocal samples. Confidently keeping up the wonky groove he incorporates additional string sounds and a few filter effects.

80s synth-driven beat science performs a live, 80s synth-pad-based beat. After eight-bars, she switches up the beat by doubling the speed of the hi-hats, lifting the production from a boom-bap instrumental to a modern trap beat.

Electronic loft music

Taetro quickly showcases an electro-laden production on the new MIKRO. Starting off with white noise-based percussions and a dreamy bell sound, he goes on to add a punchy drum groove and a stabby bassline before rounding it off with gated synth chords.

Persian live trap

Beatmaker Daniel ASADI gives an impressive demonstration of his finger drumming abilities. Combining classic beat-making with oriental sounds and melodies, this beat instantly turns into a full grown earworm.
