When my innovator started, I had never attempted to create a Hip Hop track before. I was mostly into house music and other types of EDM, and was somewhat worried about if I would be able to do what I had signed myself up for, a Hip Hop album. Soon after starting the project, i realized my trepidation was unwarranted. I began to learn so much about the production, culture, and history of Hip Hop, I couldn't take myself away from the screen. After seemingly countless hours of fun in the studio, I managed to finish 7 tracks. 3 Hip Hop, 1 House, and 3 Hybrid tracks (Hip Hop/ Electronic). I orginally planned on making 5 tracks, but as the album continued, I felt like it could use more, so I added a House bonus track, along with a rework of one of my Hip Hop tracks.
After finishing this, i created my album art, something I felt matched what I wanted my album to be 'viewed' as, almost a visual sneak peak into my thoughts throughout the album. I concluded the project by mixing and mastering the tracks, assembling and naming them, and finally, exporing to MP3.
I learned more from my Innovator project then any project I've done before, and I enjoyed it immensely throughout. Being able to do what I want and turn it in for a grade was an amazingly freeing expierence that I am so glad the Freestyle teachers trusted us with. I hope you enjoy the album! Thank you Freestyle for this amazing opportunity.
