The three Atlanta producers had a lot of knowledge to share.
The Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York just concluded, but not before boasting a number of one-of-a-kind events in the realm of hip hop, dance music, jazz, and beyond. One of the festival's events was a roundtable discussion with three of modern music's most influential producers: Zaytoven, Sonny Digital, and Metro Boomin.
The three producers sat down with Red Bull Music Academy to discuss a variety of topics that include the label "trap" music, their musical origins, Atlanta, sampling, and more. The hour and a half discussion is dense, and we don't expect anyone to have time to watch the whole thing, so we've gone ahead and broke down the ten things we found especially interesting over the course of the discussion.
