Kanye's Engineer & Producer Mike Dean Talks Making Music, "Watch The Throne" Etc.

Got into this thanks to, but where most of the kids probably just checked it out for the Kanye stuff, there's actually a lot more to the talk if you have the time to watch. If you're making music, mixing it, mastering, whether prog rock, hip-hop, pop stuff there is extremely well articulated points and interest throughout this thing. Did my little rewinding back and forth trying to really catch stuff and it proved to be a great source of information if you're in the business of making awesome music. The renting out the whole floor of the hotel to make a record with Kanye shit is bananas. They also rented out the floor above and below to be able to make some noise. So dope.

In the 14th episode of Pensado's Place, Kanye West's engineer Mike Dean joins Dave and Herb to talk about his career, pioneering the "Dirty South" sound, and working with Kanye west on all of his albums! Dave and Mike then take viewer questions from the chatroom and facebook in "The Corner Office", followed by this week's "Batter's Box", where Mike answers Dave's rapid-fire questions regarding the gear he uses. This week's "Into The Lair" is at the end of the show, and is a continuation from last week's where Dave gives four distinct examples of how to clear out the middle and get wider mixes!
