Producertech releases Secrets of the Mashup by Elite Force

Producertech has launched Secrets of the Mashup by Elite Force, a video tutorial course on creating mashups.

Secrets of the Mashup by Elite Force

Since 1996, Simon Shackleton has been producing and DJing across the globe as Elite Force. Famed for both his technical prowess and exceptional creative capacity, he has received support from legendary DJs like Sasha and Fatboy Slim. In this lengthy set of tutorials, he provides an insight into how this remixing master created his mix of M.A.D. (with Hatiras, Jelo, Stanton Warriors & Vandal), featured on his 2010 ‘Revamped’ album.

Throughout the course, the methods Elite Force utilises are dissected so you can understand not just how he works, but also the ‘why?’, which is fundamental to his ability to put together such vibrant and memorable mixes. By the end of the course you will have learnt how one of the most respected producers around uses these methods, as he imparts information to you in his clear and concise manner alongside real time demonstrations of these sophisticated techniques.

Alongside the two hours of video tutorials, the course also includes a 100MB bonus pack of samples courtesy of Loopmasters and the track M.A.D. For additional guidance on the techniques demonstrated, or to share your own tips and tricks, you can visit the Producertech forum where you can receive feedback and advice from other students and Producertech tutors.

The video course is available from Loopmasters for £29.95 GBP.

Ninja Tune releases Ninja Jamm mixing & jamming app for iOS

Ninja tune has launched Ninja Jamm, a free mixing and jamming app for iOS that lets anyone instantly remix music from the Ninja Tune label using touch control, state of the art effects and killer music from Ninja artists.

Ninja Jamm

The app is a revolutionary fusion of music and software for the iPhone brought to you by the musical innovators at Ninja Tune and the design wizards at seeper.

Combining aspects of DJing, remixing and producing, the app lets anyone experience the excitement of playing with electronic music. Ninja artists such as Bonobo, Amon Tobin, Mr Scruff and Coldcut, provide the tunes for you to jamm with.

As each tune plays, you can switch seamlessly between the original licks and bonus clips, created by highly trained remix Ninjas, whilst glitching and effecting each channel and firing oneshot samples over the top.

Unlike many other music apps, the Jamm experience is very hands-on and immediate- your human feel is their key to enjoying freestyle mix possibilities. You can touch, tilt, shake and use multiple fingers and thumbs to Jamm and record, create a killer version of a favourite Ninja Tune and instantly share it with the world through Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

The Ninja Jamm app comes bundled with a free Tunepack, Beats and Pieces3 from Coldcut, the cut’n’paste classic from the DJ duo who helped define both the modern remix with Paid in Full and mashup with Journeys By DJ. More Tunepacks from Ninja artists are available for in-app purchase.
