Here’s my list from last year.

 

Nine Inch Nails: The Day The World Went Away (instrumental)

The Fragile: Deviations 1 by @nineinchnails is the ultimate instrumental soundtrack for working! Too bad it’s only available for those who bought the vinyl version. There’s an older version of the instrumental album available at Apple Music, if that’s your thing.

The Fragile by Nine Inch Nails is one my all time favorite records.

I realize the video will probably be deleted soon, but this is too good not to share.

 

 

808

808 showcases conversations with some of the giants of hip-hop and pop music production to find out why the device has been so important. This isn’t a film about an obscure music tool. The Roland TR-808 was one of the most powerful pieces of music technology to ever hit the business. And its sound continues to reverberate today.
