Pass the beat (featuring The Kount, Kaelin Ellis, J3PO, and Dresage)

We recently teamed up with XLN Audio to bring four talented producers together to create a track.

The Kount constructed a beat using a combination of in-the-box programming and recorded foley, which he passed off to Kaelin Ellis who added a grooving bassline and some textures. Next, J3PO recorded some of his signature keys and pads, over which Dresage tracked her infectious vocals, layered with a modern upright emulation from Addictive Keys.

Check out the video above for an in-depth look into each producer’s creative process, and see how they created tasteful timbres and a sense of cohesion across their contributions using RC-20 Retro Color.

What combination of producers would you like to see collaborate on our YouTube channel next? Let us know in the comments below.
