Bink Shares A Few Jewels

VA Beatmaker (Producer) Drops Science On Everything From Gear To Drums

By Amir Said (Sa'id)

I find that most beatmakers are worth listening to; you can't be narrow-minded as to where a quality jewel will come from. But then there are some beatmakers who deserved to be listened closely to. Such is the case with Bink.

Bink, perhaps the most underrated beatmaker (producer) of our time, has in fact been quietly building up a catalog than spans not only several important eras but also many pivotal recording artists. So any interview that he does is bound to shed a few jewels. And fortunately, in his sit-down with PMPWorldwide he delivered. In this video, Bink speaks on his beginning with the ASR-10; how he was influenced by New York beatmakers as well as the unique "rhythms" of the DMV; sampling soul; sample clearance and why he's willing to give up 100% of his publishing; and more. (Editor's note: The BeatTips Manual includes a detailed breakdown of sample clearance and its complex process.)

    "You can legally sample and use any recording up to 1, 2, 3, or 4 seconds."
    WRONG! Under existing copyright law, there is no clear, predetermined length (amount in seconds) that is “legally” permissible to sample.

    "If you use samples on a free mixtape, it’s perfectly O.K."
    WRONG! A free mixtape does NOT permit you to use samples from copyrighted recordings without the permission of the copyright holders.

    "Sampling is easy; there’s nothing to it. Anyone can do it well."
    WRONG! Sampling is an art form that requires technical skill, imagination, and artistic understanding.

    "Sampling involves the use of pre-recorded songs only."
    WRONG! While the art of sampling is most commonly understood to include the use of pre-recorded songs (traditionally from vinyl records), source material for sampling includes any recorded sound or sound that can be recorded.
