Want to watch someone make beat in real time? Want to watch someone make a beat in real time using only side A of Michael Jackson‘s Thriller? Want to watch someone make a beat in real time using only side A of Michael Jackson’s Thriller in only 10 minutes? Well then Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet has got just the video for you.
The UK producer and musician is just the latest participant in the “Beat This” web series/competition from dontwatchthat.tv that challenges producers to make a beat in under ten minutes. They are rated on a 1-10 scale. If you have no idea how to use Ableton Live and how to even begin to make what Hebden does in just 10 minutes , then maybe go ahead and give it a 9 or a 10. Watch the beat come to life below (via Pitchfork).
