Producers are often the unsung heroes of the music industry. There’s only a select few of Just Blazes and Timbalands for every plethora of producers that reach parallel levels of notoriety as the artists spitting the verse, even on Hip-hop’s most monumental songs. Generally, the vast amount of people behind the scenes, remain that way. Over the past few decades, aside from fans knowing a producer’s signature sound, fans knowing the producer or DJ’s catchy drop was the most you could ask for.
Thanks to “On the Spot Sessions”, set up by MaschineMasters.com and ProducersGear.com, the viewing public get an intimate view of record engineering and production. In this episode, we see super producer Tha Jerm of SOI (whose catalog includes Lloyd Banks, Dave East, Jadakiss, Danny Brown, and French Montana) depicting every step of his creative process, from receiving tracks he samples from, creating the skeleton, adding his preferable amount of percussion to the actual emcee, Queens’ own, Gist, who pens the dope 16—motivated by the fire gospel sounds produced on the spot.
Check out the whole episode here, which gets you almost close enough to the process to earn a co-producer cred.
Tha Jerm is also geared up to release two projects this year, consisting of his own compilation, which will feature several hip-hop heavyweights such as, Dave East, Mobb Deep, Lloyd Banks, Gist The Essence, Mike Classic, and more. Gist and Jerm are also finishing their EP, which will feature the full version of the record created for On The Spot Sessions, entitled All Is Well. Be sure to look out for that and everything else on deck!
