In the below video, Hot Sugar demonstrates his "associative music" technique by recording the room's "silence" and processing it into a synthesizer on his keyboard. He then creates a snare from a fireball and proceeds to jam on the keys over his track "The Seagull." This was recorded live at the Cosmic Zoo studio after a long conversation with Intuition on the Kinda Neat podcast.
This week we sat down with the ever creative beatsmith Hot Sugar. The NY based producer coined the term "associative music," a process he uses to create soundscapes from every day noises that most of us would never think to record or listen closer to. He's released multiple solo projects as well as worked with rappers like The Roots, Open Mike Eagle, Kool AD, Heems, Antwon, and has been featured on our Youtube channel before on Kitty's "Florida." We had a great conversation on topics ranging from pony camps in France to our mutual first internet search for a naked woman.
