BEAT MAKERS

Beatmaker Producers are pretty common in the Hip Hop and Urban Pop world. They are known for exactly that - making beats. This started in the world of Hip Hop but since Pop music has become more beat oriented, some pop songs are written as ‘toplines’ (vocal melodies) over existing beats by Beatmakers with a particular sound. When working with Beatmakers you’d typically either choose from an existing beat they already have (and lease it for use or buy it for exclusive use), and then write a vocal melody and lyrics over it (this is the more common use case), or you would pay the Beatmaker to create a custom beat based on your specifications or around a melody you already wrote.

As an example, Sia worked with a traditional Producer on her early records, which included live instrumentation and more organic production and songwriting processes, whereas she discussed in interviews how for her latest pop-oriented singles she wrote melodies over existing beats that Beatmakers sent her. If you listen to these records you’ll hear the stylistic difference that is due in part to the difference in process.

Both Traditional Producers and Beatmakers might or might not also be Mixing Engineers. In some cases if they mix this might be part of the package you get working with them, and sometimes their mixing chops are part of what make up the ‘sound’ they are known for. Mixing is a really important part of the production process. Some producers are hands on mixers, while others aren’t mixers at all but might sit next to mixers and direct them. They don’t have to be mixers, but it’s good to know what strengths they bring to the table.

Every producer is different. Find out what your producer brings to the table by asking them.
