We’ve been fans of Coby Ashpis’ live beatmaking videos for a while now. With the 20th anniversary of Illmatic just passing by, Coby decided to put together a remix of “Life’s A Bitch” using the Maschine.
This project was put together in 2005 as a school project for Illastrate’s thesis. The goal was to document the process of producing and recording a project from pre-production to the finished product. He chose to do an EP with Nasir Jones, with Jerry Butler as the backdrop.
