Aside from making super iconic sneakers, Converse is known throughout the music world for their generous philanthropic endeavours. From their free Rubber Tracks concerts to their numerous workshops, the brand is known for giving back to the industry that helped make them great. Today, Converse has announced that their famed Sample Library workshop will be arriving in Toronto for a solid day long session with aspiring producers.
The workshop will be led by Indaba Music (who partnered with Converse to create and run the Sample Library), and will be mentored by Toronto-based producer Frank Dukes (who has produced or co-produced for everyone you love, Eminem, Drake, Future, Drake and Future, Rihanna, Kanye, 50 Cent, Jeremih, Pusha T, Travis Scott, Mac Miller, Ghostface Killah, Wale, Freddie Gibbs, Selena Gomez and so many more) who will provide workshop participants with feedback on their tracks and insight into his production process.
The goal of the workshop will be to teach participants the fundamentals of creating new music using samples from the Converse Rubber Tracks Sample Library. The workshop will be structured with a combination of live tutorial presentations, one-on-one instruction, and break-out sessions – enabling music producers of varying abilities to work at the own speed.
