Kaytranada Praises The Neptunes On Sway In The Morning

kaytranada facebook adam taubertHailing from Montreal, Kaytranada and his “99.9%” album are currently taking the music industry by storm. With features from Craig David, Anderson.Paak, Vic Mensa, Goldlink and many more the sound is genre bending and will have you on the edge of your seat with the turn of every track. Joining Sway In The Morning he speaks on his childhood in Canada and how he came across Fruity Loops and began to make music. Taking inspiration from everything from The Neptunes to Michael Jackson to 90’s pop, he began crafting a sound all his own.

Getting noticed on Soundcloud through his various beats and remix’s he caught the attention of Janet Jackson and Madonna. Given the VIP treatment by Madonna while opening up for her he speaks on how touring opened up the door for depression after going through the same routine day in and day out. Revealing his sexual orientation to The Fader he opens up about how coming out of the closet helped ease his depression.

At the end they played a little game called ‘Battle Of The Best’ where he had to pick two 2 random producers blindfolded from a bag and had to say which one is better. The last producers he picked were Pharrell VS. Quincy Jones, whereas Kaytranada said “I can’t say Pharrell, you know it’s The Neptunes from me they both killed it and I ma go with The Neptunes on this one over Quincy Jones. That’s a real Neptunes Fan right there, you gotta give Kaytranada credits for saying it’s The Neptunes and not Pharrell and he goes ahead and chooses Chad & Pharrell over Quincy Jones, heck out the interview below at 26:05.

OTHERtone Episode 18 With The Neptunes, Scott Vener, Justin Timberlake & Tyler, The Creator (Update) (2016)

The Neptunes Tyler The Creator Scott Vener
Here is another video of OTHERtone’s episode with The Neptunes, Justin Timberlake and Tyler, The Creator

Posted April 5th.
“MY NAME IS GALAXY GEAR AND I NEED ASSISTANCE”. This was the most epic episode ever. Galaxy Gear aka Chad Hugo sat down with Pharrell, Scott Vener, Tyler, The Creator and Justin Timberlake to talk about how they created ‘Justified14 years ago, the production history of Classics Neptunes tracks, and naturally the impact and legacy of A Tribe Called Quest’s own Phife Dawg who recently passed from complications with diabetes.

7 Sl Zzxs
It started with Chad plugging his Galaxy Gear layering an Intro while the guys talked about some funny News Bloopers 1, 2 & 3. Tyler is the spokesperson for us Neptunes Fans and last week Tyler was kindy enough to ask us on the forum what questions we would like to hear on the show and the only reason he’s on the show besides being where he is in life, he’s asking all the questions Neptunes Fans have all wanted to ask, and he asked particulary about their favourite tracks on Justified and in which Pharrell started singing the lyrics to ‘Nothin Else’.

The NEptunes, Tyler, The Creator, Justin Timberl
Pharrell also revealed what has happened to the other Justin Timberlake x Neptunes collaborations that didn’t make the final cut like ‘Second Chance’ and ‘What’s A Guy Gotta Do’(See Below) that has been created while they were working on the NSYNC record ‘Girlfriend’. JT said that ‘Second Chance’ didn’t make the final cut because it didn’t fit the concept of the album.

The Neptunes & Tyler, The Creator sf
Pharrell talked later on about ‘Frontin’ where he revealed that it was made specifically for Prince but he declined the tune. Pharrell joked that the verses on the track track were only like 2 chords and the bridge was like 16 chords in itself and he basically admitted that Chad added all of the instrumentation outside of drums and some basslines, notably the entire bridge of ‘Frontin‘.

12479424 248889475446391 1516245323 n

Justin also talked about the moment he knew that stepping away from ’NSync was the right move. “The funny thing is like, literally the first day of recording, I remember walking in and we were like, ‘What are we gonna do?’” Timberlake said. He then mimicked Chad, playing a riff on the guitar of ‘Like I Love You“And I was like, just that whole rhythm]… I was like, ‘This just sounds like nothing I’ve heard!’ It reminds me of the feeling I get from certain things that I love. That moment was so much of a confirmation for me.” Since striking out on his own, the musician has won numerous Grammy awards, four Emmys and much more.

Pharrell said that he “accidentally” got into making hooks, songs like “Shake Ya Ass” were to be rough ideas, and they actually wanted The Temptations on that hook and that Pharrell only did drums and basslines while learning other instruments later on. In between these knowledge darts is a perfect mix of Neptunes hits and deep cuts by Scott Vener aka Broke Mogul below, straight nostalgia. Tyler somehow revealed at the end that there is a big project coming up, nonetheless, which is probably Pharrell’s third studio album, nonetheless it’s great to hear that JT and The Neptunes are back in the studio, Don’t miss this episode on iTunes now and check out the Tracklist of the Episode below.

Tammy Lucas Talks Working With The Neptunes (2016)

20141031 180116
Tammy Lucas sat down with YouKnowIGotSoul where she talks about her start in the music business, working with The Neptunes and thinking about putting her old Neptunes songs from her ‘Truly Soulful’ album out.

YouKnowIGotSoul: Pharrell always credits you as the person who taught him how to write songs. What was your writing process like and what did he pick up from that?
Tammy Lucas: It was a lot of listening to the music. Right off the top, we would listen to a lot of Stevie Wonder. It was a lot of Hip Hop and from listening and talking about the music and how dope this part was and from the instrumentation to the vocals, we were really caught up in the music. We appreciated the great music from Donny Hathaway. Then when you’re ready to do something, you have something to give. Not in the sense of copying it all, but in the sense of enriching yourself with great music.
That’s what we did. Pharrell and Chad had songs when I met them. I would say that I made them better songwriters and definitely enhanced or brought out a lot of stuff, but they had a lot of stuff that was dope from day one. That made me so excited about them and I expressed that excitement to Teddy Riley. I told him he had to sign The Neptunes. I told Pharrell my project was about to be done and I told him that I wanted them to write some songs for my album. That’s how we started working on my album. We were waiting on Teddy because he had so many projects coming and going. I had already moved down there and at first, I was just staying there and then I got an apartment. Once I met The Neptunes, we would just be waiting.
Once you have a lot of people signed and you’re this hit producer, everyone has to wait for their turn. While we were waiting, that’s how me and The Neptunes got really tight because we just started hanging out everyday. Pharrell is a beast. His work ethic is off the chain. That’s probably how he is today because he was ready. He was calling me and Chad everyday and he was like “Let’s go!”. He would come in my house. A lot of times, he would have songs. He would let me listen to everything he did. I would give him the fine points of songwriting. Melodies and lyrics is my forte. I don’t do tracks, but I pick tracks. Between what I knew and highlighting the great music we were listening to, that was pretty much the formula.

If you haven’t checked out Kanye West’s seventh studio album ’The Life Of Pablo’, Pharrell Williams is credited on the tune ’30 Hours’ which is produced by Kanye West, Karriem Riggins and Mike Dean and the reason Pharrell is credited on the tune is because it contains an interpolation of Nelly’s ’Hot In Herre’, make sure to cop the album on Tidal and check out the tune below.

Pusha T. Confirms Pharrell (The Neptunes) On ‘Darkest Before Dawn’, Due December 18th

1378138813 1fa033a79d7270c45bdce9d61265cce1By Natalie Weiner. Pusha T.’s been building hype for his sophomore solo album for most of 2015, which was, up until yesterday, going to be called King Push. During an interview with Noisey, though, the rapper explained that he had so much material he wanted to put out that he would be releasing two albums instead of one — King Push will be pushed (no pun intended) to the spring of 2016 to make room for the just-announced Darkest Before Dawn, which will drop Dec. 18.

“I’ve been recording so much — I didn’t want to break up that body of work,” the rapper told Noisey. “I feel like I had the producers doing things that they weren’t usually known for, a little out of their wheelhouse. I wanted to give the fans that body of work. That’s the music I love, and that’s the music that my fans love from me.

Instead of having those moments throughout King Push, let’s just separate the game.” Pusha confirmed that Darkest features collaborations with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, The-Dream, Jill Scott, Kehlani, and Beanie Sigel. It also features production from Kanye, Hudson Mohawke, Pharrell, Q-Tip, Timbaland, and Diddy.

Snoop Dogg – Bush (Six Neptunes Tracks) (2015), California Roll feat. Pharrell & Stevie Wonder (15’)

Js V4 NG8
So the Snoop Dogg Project ‘Bush’ is finally out, and features almost on every tune Pharrell and Charlie Wilson. And the much hyped tune of the album, the Stevie Wonder collaboration is finally out for us listeners to see what the whole buzz is all about and since the album leaked on the net, the i am OTHER team revealed that ‘California Roll’ will be the next single.

California Roll’ pretty much stands out of the whole album and is also a recycled beat from a previous Neptunes session. One of the most talked tune on the forum is ‘R U A Freak’ which should be also a single if you’re asking me, because it sounds pretty much like ‘Let’s Get Blown Part 2’, but my favourite tune on the album is ‘Run Away’ featuring Gwen Stefani,

And a big thanks to matty for giving us the Official Credits to the album, which has surprisingly Chad Hugo credited on 6 Tracks and is safe to say it’s produced by The Neptunes. If you’re wondering why they didn’t called it as produced by The Neptunes, it’s probably because of the promotion use of Pharrell’s name for this project. Check out all credits below Including Snoop Dogg’s next single ‘California Roll’ and make sure to cop the album on iTunes.

Snoop Dogg – So Many Pros (Behind The Scenes) (2015)

Snoop Dogg – So Many Pros feat. Pharrell & Charlie Wilson (Official Video) (2015) (Produced By The Neptunes)

Snoop Dogg just dropped his second single from his upcoming collaborative album wth Pharrell titled ‘Bush’, and the first thing you notice on the tune is, CHAD HUGO worked on the tune also and is credited as co-produced, and it’s safe to tag it as ‘Produced By The Neptunes’. The Timbaland Fans should recognize this tune as ‘Been It’.

Which was planned to drop as Timbaland’s first single to his scrapped ‘Shock Value 3’ album that was supposed to drop back in 2013, and they even shot the video for it, but it didn’t make the final cut. The first version features also Justin Timberlake on the tune, but the final version has Charlie Wilson and Pharrell on the vocals, check out the Official Video above directed by Francois Rousselet.
