The MPC by Akai is one of the most widely used pieces of equipment for music making this side of the millennium. Legendary producers such as Kanye West, Mark Ronson, and Frank Ocean’s producer Om’Mas Keith. It’s a drum machine and sampler all packaged into one. The MPC3000 can be seen in the opening shot of the video of today’s track of the day ‘I Still Care’ from Saint DX. The song takes a lot from the historical samples of yesteryear, with electronic drums supported by a full kit. The video pans out to expose the beautiful 80s inspired colour palette and music gear strewn all across a vintage decorated apartment. The song itself is a strong throwback to the 80s palette again, with chiming synthy and guitar tones that sound like they’re recorded 6 feet underwater. Go check it out.
