This week Emendy had the pleasure hosting Backstage Lectures, a Hip Hop Production class, presented by former Emendy lecturer Towdee Mac. Towdee has established himself not only as a solo artist but also performing in the well-known group Morafe. He is also an established producer and recently started the Backstage Lectures where he teaches seminars on Hip Hop production. The 3 hour lecture was hosted at Emendy’s newly completed lecturer hall.

The class was specifically tailored to give novice students a background of Hip Hop and focus on teaching them how to approach the production of a Hip Hop song. Towdee created the first song himself to demonstrate a sampling technique he used recently in a production. Then he deleted everything and got the students involved in creating a unique original song.

First year student Nqaba Dlamini stunned his fellow class mates with a piano performance that would make up the melodic structure of the song. Towdee then sequenced the drums around the piano, and showed the students the process of creating drums for a Hip Hop track, after which Nqaba reprised his performance by adding bass to the track.

Towdee then showed the students how to create a compelling arrangement for the song and subsequently created three verses and a chorus for students to do vocals on. The microphone was setup in the studio next door, and three students had the opportunity to improvise a verse for the song.

As always it was a privilege having Towdee back at with what is becoming an annual event at Emendy.
