As we celebrate ten years of artistry and inventiveness with MASCHINE, we’ve taken a look back at some of the stories involving our most prestigious users, some of today’s top talents, as well as peering forward towards tomorrow’s future online stars. This community of vloggers and beatmakers is awash with ingenious and captivating characters from across the world, who regularly post their music-making sessions, jams, and tutorials online. To honor the work they’ve achieved, and the videos they’ve created, we decided to invite the cream-of-the-crop to Berlin to engage in a week-long gala of production festivities.
Amongst those who’ll be roaming the streets of Berlin (in addition to our offices), are those who you may already be familiar with, in addition to a few new faces you won’t be. Amongst the creative ensemble is US-based YouTuber, and proficient sampler of the vinyl-variety Sarah, The !llstrumentalist, a.k.a. Sarah2ill, whom you may already know from her idiosyncratic production break-downs, and sample packs. Also amongst the mix is cult producer, Game-of-Thrones-theme emulator, and all-round charismatic guy Pat Ryan. Sweden’s sampler extraordinaire Accurate Beats will also be joining the pack, along with DATSUNN (formerly known as Soul Brother Stef), Sanjay C, Courtney Hawkins, Saint Joe, Bo Beats, Shakazula, Stefan Guy, Marques Kincaid, Loopop, I’m a music mogul, and DDS. If you’re unfamiliar with any of these names, then watch our introductory video with the cast and crew below:
Music is about community and collaboration, and Creator Base is an opportunity for our most beloved, and ambitious online experts to get together — most of them for the first time ever — to share and learn from one another. Throughout the week our team of creative moguls will be set loose upon the streets of Berlin, visiting some of the city’s most treasured landmarks, while collaborating with Native’s core team of engineers and developers. We’ll be on hand to document the week’s activities. To stay up to date with everything that’s happening follow our Instagram account here. You can also follow the hashtag: #CreatorBase19 on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook to stay up to date. There will also be select one-off performances throughout the week, which we will be filming and hosting on the blog in the forthcoming weeks, so check back to see them in all their glory.
For fans of the likes of Courtney Hawkins, Pat Ryan, Bo Beats and the rest, this is an opportunity for you to be able to catch up and see what happens when these leading authorities in vlogging and production get together.
