Ski: Making “Dead Presidents”

Here is a great, lo-fi video where Ski Beatz talks about how he made Jay-Z’s classic from his debut album, Reasonable Doubt, “Dead Presidents.” He speaks on the technology that he used (like many producers of that time: an Akai S-950 for the melody slaved to the SP-1200 for drums and triggering the 950), bassline filtering, etc. A must watch!

If you’re not familiar with the song itself…
