Brian Kidd

This guy is really talented .. i was just checking out his Nappy Roots 'No Good' beat and it's dark man. Anyone have any info on him or anything, coz there's not a great deal i can see about him.

I really like his drums. I love the way he gets his shakers / hi hats / percussion sounding in the No Good beat..

Peace

The best drum programmer / sound chooser ever.

And Tied with Timbaland for best beatmaker ever.

I can personally say I love Brian Kidd and he's a mentor of mine.

Dude's ear is on a whole other level. Kicks always big as hell..bass always hitting perfect.

His timing is top tier. He's my favorite programmer outside of myself and Polow.

MySpace.com - Brian Kidd - ATLANTA, GEORGIA - www.myspace.com/brian_kidd

I wish the world could hear his beats man them shits bring me so much excitement.

Chase its funny you say that because I've always wondered why he doesn't get more recognition and shine considering how good he is. I can't even find one interview with him online or even a picture. Is he just the kind of guy who prefers to lay low? Cause his work is seriously incredible, that song he did for Enrique Iglesias is just....wow.

On the topic of drum programming what did you guys do besides practice a ton to get so good? I've only heard one song you did (Double up, great drums) but polow's timing is rediculous, I try to remake a lot of his stuff on my 4k but its not easy. The drums on London bridge and let's get this paper are both crazy.

Danja did the live drum rolls.

As far why he isn't known man I've asked Brian mad times lol.

I think he really just like making beats and plus he's pretty set financially. He doesn't have to produce for his main income.

And for the programming I don't really practice..just comes natural to me from studying Timbaland and Brian from the jump.

I listen to a lot of world music and you hear different cadences and timing so I put that into music as well.

Learning the ins and outs of all the rhythms and shit.

B Kidd is the man.
Ive scored a few sounds through him a lot drums.
I know he turned so many people on th the miko and neeko.
After he did that no good beat.. the same sample showed up on nelly furtado album.
produced by timbo. its damn near the same beat. he worked on the first Nappy album as well. Ill tell you another dope producer that runs with brian
James groove Chambers.. sick
he produced aw naw for nappy and never got the credit. it all went to jazzy who didnt have shit to do with the record accept the vocal he did, which groove wrote..Chris
Featherstone is another one.

At least his tracks are MUSICAL..and have structure and substance....unlike most of the crap thats posted herein.
However,in my opinion,the songs suffer.

Exactly what I was saying about Brian the other day! I always find his tracks to be a musical cut above the rest.
