8 Beatmakers/Samplemakers à suivre en 2023 (PART.1)

1. PLANAWAY: UNIQUE SOUNDS AND COLLABORATIONS, A LOOK INTO THE WORLD OF A 19-YEAR-OLD BEATMAKER

Planaway, a producer for around 4-5 years, has become known through his evolution in the soundcloud community.

He started by producing more electro pieces before finding his own musical style. His goal from the beginning has always been to create unique sounds that stand out from the crowd. His current productions can be described as more experimental.

2. NESHH: THE ART OF MUSICAL COMPOSITION THROUGH SAMPLES AND LOOPS

Neshh, a young 18-year-old composer living in Paris, launched into musical production around 2-3 years ago. Since then, he has focused exclusively on composing samples and loops, preferring to integrate the rhythms of other beatmakers into his melodies to create new work in a direction he would not have imagined.

Exploring different musical styles is a habit for Neshh, but his favorite genre remains music with a jazz/soul color. Chords are a central element in his compositions, because they provide a unique emotion that he does not find in any other musical style. He thus wishes to transmit this emotion through his creations, by seeking to give a very sampled sound, reminiscent of the original soundtracks of films from the 60s and 70s.

Before getting into music production, Neshh started picking up melodies by ear on a piano app on his phone, which inspired him to want to compose. He downloaded software to start producing his own music. Again, he began learning to improvise on the piano to create even more authentic melodies.

Neshh draws his influences from various sources, such as American artists Kanye West and Brent Faiyaz or jazz pianist Bill Evans. However, he considers that his inspiration does not come directly from what he listens to, but rather from the atmosphere of a film or a particular place, or even from a simple image. He thus wishes to merge his musical styles with those of other artists, even if they are very far from what he does.

Neshh has big ambitions for his music, considering he is still at the beginning of his journey. His priority is to perfect his technique to become excellent in his art, but he also aspires to disseminate his music and to work with many artists, particularly in France, such as Green Montana, Luidji and Baby Neelou whom he recently discovered.

For Neshh, musical composition is a hunger in itself, and he enjoys creating for the sake of creating.

5. BRIDO: AN ATYPICAL JOURNEY, HOW MUSIC CHANGED HIS LIFE DURING THE PANDEMIC

When the Covid-19 pandemic began in 2020, Brido discovered his passion for music production.

Of Algerian and Filipino origin, he quickly became interested in music production and began posting his productions on YouTube.

This is how he met members of the Diez community such as Tsukii, Dofla, Greg Josse and Guyzzi. But it was also thanks to YouTube that he met Meto, who introduced him to the world of samplemaking. He then began to create his own melodies.

Little by little, he accelerated in this field and had the chance to work with certain emerging artists on the French scene without even setting foot in France.

It's a real shame for him who grew up listening to all kinds of music thanks to his parents: disco, Stromae, Frank Sinatra... But it was his brother who really immersed him in rap with artists such as SCH, Josman, Wiz Khalifa, ASAP Rocky, Ferg, Skrillex. With a little hindsight, he realizes that he has been surrounded by music since a young age and this has allowed him to be open to more horizons!

Music changed his life during the pandemic and allowed him to discover a new passion. He is proud of his atypical career and is convinced that this is only the beginning of a great musical adventure.
