If you want to learn how to flip samples, you might as well learn it from the best. Toronto producer Frank Dukes has been behind the boards for Drake, Kanye West, Travi$ Scott, and BadBadNotGood, and this weekend in Toronto, he’ll be hosting a sample library workshop for aspiring producers, in partnership with Indaba Music and Converse Rubber Tracks Sample Library.
Participants will learn production techniques, get feedback in their music, and learn how to make the most of the Rubber Tracks Sample Library, a database of original, royalty-free samples, adding up to 38,623 files, and over 4 days of audio.
Dukes is a perfect mentor for this event, given that he’s a proprietor of a sample library of his own, the Kingsway Music Library. Drake's "0-100" actually came together because Boi-1da lifted a recording from Dukes' archives.
The workshop takes place on Saturday, May 14th in Toronto. If you’re interested in participating, you can register here. (Update: registration is now closed, but you can access the Rubber Tracks Sample Library any time, free of charge, right here).
