Timbaland and Kanye West are among the artists included in PotentialOfUs.com’s list of “Musicians Who Rely On Technology To Create Their Sounds.”
“Super-producer Timothy ‘Timbaland’ Mosley is inarguably one of the greatest producers of our time,” the PotentialOfUs.com article says of the Virginia Beach, Virginia producer. “His monolithic discography includes everyone from Madonna and Gwen Stefani to Jay Z and Beyonce. Having a strong repertoire of beat-box and self-made sounds, Timbaland changed the game when he broke down a baby’s cry from the band Perrey and Kingsley’s song ‘Countdown at 6’ and reconstructed it as the main beat for Aaliyah’s 1996 hit ‘Are You That Somebody.'”
As for Kanye West, the story says that “he’s made an indelible mark on the industry with his genius-level use of sampling in some of his most successful songs.”
