Of course a pioneer like Hank Shocklee would gravitate to Earthworks microphones for scoring the upcoming film YE!: A Jagun Story.
Pioneers, innovators and game-changers always gravitate towards the best technology. That’s what pushes boundaries and enables creativity.
The best technology simply disappears into the background while capturing the emotion.
If you want proof, just look at Hank Shocklee. Hank is one of the most revered producers of the past 50 years, a founding member of Public Enemy and The Bomb Squad.
On landmark albums like It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, Fear of a Black Planet and Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black, The Bomb Squad’s beats utilized dissonance, vocal clips, and layered, chopped up-samples to create a funky and immersive tapestry of sound that has since influenced hip-hop, rock, and electronic music.
Hip-hop has always been known for pushing creative boundaries.
For using cutting-edge technology to create art.
For paying homage to the musicians they sample.
So of course, a pioneer like Hank Shocklee would gravitate to Earthworks microphones for scoring the upcoming film YE!: A Jagun Story.
How do you use your Earthworks mics to capture emotion and break boundaries?
