The Scion Music(less) Music Conference gathers dozens of artists and behind the scenes experts to discuss crucial ideas and smart approaches for a successful career in music. They share their knowledge in panels, workshops and interviews. As a supplement the Scion Music(less) Music Conference, we film visits to the studios of producers from a range of genres to get a look at the equipment they use and the environments they’ve created.
Jazzy Jeff is a legend since the 1980s and in his suburban home he’s custom built a studio where he can both develop his DJ routines and produce music. Along with his top of the line contemporary gear, he’s even got a classic Neve mixing console
Party Supplies takes us to his spot in Brooklyn where he recreates his beat for Danny Brown’s “Grown Up” and plays some of the new tracks he’s working on, all using his trusty Akai MPC 1000 sampler.
Dubstep titan Bare lets us into his place in Downtown Los Angeles and illustrates how he spends hours tinkering with his effects-heavy sounds.
Filip Nikolic of Poolside opens up the Los Angeles poolhouse studio that gave his group its name. In his ramshackle space he quickly puts together the start of a new daytime disco jam.
Nick Hook is a producer, engineer and DJ in New York City who also has extensive experience playing in bands. He takes us through his vintage keyboard and drum machine collection before showing that he can work digitally as well.
