Lot 49 Records

Hopefully a new generation of DJ's can enjoy these now sought after classics.

BEaT PORT

LOT49 label boss Meat Katie & Dopamine join forces once again on this deep but yet slightly twisted slice of dark (ish) Tech- Funk, a classic Vocal coupled with some Techno stabs and a ton of sub bass… This has already been making it’s mark and has been road tested to f**k by Mark (Meat Katie) & Matt (Dopamine), a hard track to pin point what exactly it is genre wise, all we know is it works.

How Technology has Influenced the Music Industry – Part I

Imagine a time before Spotify and Shazam; difficult, isn’t it? Well, technology has greatly influenced us all, in ways that we can’t quite imagine. We don’t look at classifieds for jobs anymore; we look at LinkedIn; we don’t call and hope we get a taxi on time, we just end up using Uber. The world has quite literally moved on, and it is all thanks to technological advancement. The music industry still celebrates and holds on to the pull of nostalgia, but there is no denying how big of a role technology has played in developing and changing it. Here in this article, we have looked to some of the technological advancements that have changed the music industry to its very core. But before we get going, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the constant support and love that you have showed us.

  1. Multi-track recording

When you hear a piece of music now, everything is quite clear. You can listen to all the parts with pristine clarity; the drum solo is as perfect as the vocals. Well, who do we thank for this? Technology, of course; the concept of a multi-track recording was introduced during the mid-50’s, and it allowed sound engineers and music producers to record different parts of the song separately and put it all together. Because before multi-track recording became a thin, sound engineers and music producers had to record a song from start to finish; they did not have the luxury to record parts separately and put them all together.

  1. Mp3 players/iPods

If you don’t remember CD players and walkmans, then my child you are far too young. For the longest time, people had to go and buy CDs and cassette tapes to listen to their favourite songs. That was until Mp3 players flooded the market. The sheer joy of being able to listen to any song on the go by simply downloading it onto your player was absolute bliss. We take for granted how easy it has become, but the world of smartphones wouldn’t have taken it up if it wasn’t for the iPod revolution that began in 2001. Apple has set the pace and redefined music on the go, and as a proud owner of two walkmans, I am not complaining about how things have turned.

There are obviously more technological revolutions that have shaped the music industry, and we will be exploring them in another article that we have planned as a sequel to this one.

How Technology has Influenced the Music Industry – Part II

After the overwhelming response to our article on how technology has influenced the music industry, we have decided to release a sequel article. The article will focus on other technological innovations that have changed the landscape of music on the whole.

  1. Auto-Tune

Auto-Tune gets a lot of stick from the audience that expects singers to be flawless and deliver top quality content all the time. But nobody is perfect, and a subtle addition of Auto-Tune can make a world of difference. There will be some off-key moments when people sing; it might be with the pitch for example. Auto-Tune should be looked at as an iron-box that takes away the wrinkles and gives a crisp impression to the track. The issue with Auto-Tune arises when some singers and music producers overuse the feature to give an entirely new layer to the song. The layer sounds artificial and too flawless for anybody’s liking. Singers like Kanye West who overuse the feature tend to face a lot of heat because fans feel that the artist doesn’t deserve credit for something that was entirely done by technology.

  1. Digital Software

Before to get a lucky break in the music industry, you would have to know someone who knows someone who happens to be the third-cousin of the assistant to a semi-famous music producer. But these days, all you need to produce music is to utilise the wonderful software that are available for free. Most older musicians feel that the younger generation have it much easier due to the development and inclusion of digital software in the music industry. Right now, you can basically compose and upload quality music content on to the web at the comfort of your bedroom. There are a number of artists who have made careers by managing to get noticed by their efforts using digital software to its advantage.

  1. Loop Pedals

If loop pedals didn’t become a thing, we may not have witnessed the sheer potential of someone like Ed Sheeran. Before loop pedals, it would require a band to have all its members to play a complete song. But now an artist can solo a song with the help of a loop pedal by their side. The loop pedal includes beats and other instrumentals at the press of a button. We believe that the loop pedals are among the biggest technological innovations to have influenced the music industry on the whole.
