A kitchen, red and stainless steel like a '50s diner, adjoins the control room Dre is renowned for constantly evolving his production style through the years, while always keeping in touch with his roots and re-shaping elements from previous work. A days. A song "Dopeman". Being the first hip-hop producer to sample the song,  Dre both paved the way for the future popularization of the G-funk style within hip-hop, and established heavy synthesizer solos as an integral part of his production style.
Dre was also one of the first producers to interpolate the then little-known drum break from The Winstons ' " Amen, Brother " in the N. A song " Straight Outta Compton ". From Straight Outta Compton on, Dre uses live musicians to replay old melodies rather than sampling them.
Dre is receptive of new ideas from other producers, one example being his fruitful collaboration with Above the Law 's producer Cold um while at Ruthless.
Dre has since been accused of "stealing" the concept of G-funk from Cold um. His album The Chronic is thought to be one of the most well-produced hip-hop albums of all time.
The influence of The Chronic and Doggystyle on the popular music of the s went not only far beyond the West Coast, but beyond hip-hop as a genre. At that time, we were listening to Snoop's album. We knew what was going on in the West through Dr. Big just knew the culture, he knew what was going on with hip-hop. It was more than just New York, it was all over. Instarting with the Murder was the Case soundtrack, Dre attempted to push the boundaries of G-funk further into a darker sound.
In songs such as "Murder was the Case" and " Natural Born Killaz ", the synthesizer pitch is higher and the drum tempo is slowed down to 91 BPM  87 BPM in the remix to create a dark and gritty atmosphere.
Percussion instruments, particularly sleigh bellsare also present. This style of production has been influential far beyond the West Coast. This style of production is usually accompanied by horror and occult -themed lyrics and imagery, being crucial to the creation of horrorcore. ByDre was again looking to innovate his sound. Beginning with his compilation Dr.
Dre Presents the AftermathDre's production has taken a less sample-based approach, with loud, layered snare drums dominating the mix, while synthesizers are still omnipresent. In his critically acclaimed second album,live instrumentation takes the place of sampling, a famous example being " The Next Episode ", in which keyboardist Camara Kambon re-played live the main melody from David McCallum 's jazz-funk work "The Edge".
For every song onDre had a keyboardistguitarist and bassist create the basic parts of the beat, while he himself programmed the drumsdid the sequencing and overdubbing and added sound effects, and later mixed the songs. During this period, Dre's signature "west coast whistle" riffs are still present albeit in a lower pitch, as in "Light Speed", "Housewife", "Some L. Niggaz" and Eminem's " Guilty Conscience " hook. The sound of "" had tremendous influence on hip-hop production, redefining the West Coast's sound and expanding the G-funk of the early s.
From the mids, Dr. Dre has said that his primary instrument in the studio is the Akai MPCa drum machine and sampler, and that he often uses as many as four or five to produce a single recording. He cites s funk musicians such as George ClintonIsaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield as his primary musical influences.
Unlike most rap producers, he tries to avoid samples as much as possible, preferring to have studio musicians re-play pieces of music he wants to use, because it allows him more flexibility to change the pieces in rhythm and tempo.
I can control it better. Other equipment he uses includes the E-mu SP drum machine and other keyboards from such manufacturers as Korg, Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Moog, and Roland. Dre also stresses the importance of equalizing drums properly, telling Scratch magazine in that he "used the same drum sounds on a couple of different songs on one album before but you'd never be able to tell the difference because of the EQ.
Dre also uses the digital audio workstation Pro Tools and uses the software to combine hardware drum machines and vintage analog keyboards and synthesizers. After founding Aftermath Entertainment inDr. Dre took on producer Mel-Man as a co-producer, and his music took on a more synthesizer-based sound, using fewer vocal samples as he had used on "Lil' Ghetto Boy" and "Let Me Ride" on The Chronicfor example.
Mel-Man has not shared co-production credits with Dr. Dre since approximatelybut fellow Aftermath producer Focus has credited Mel-Man as a key architect of the signature Aftermath sound. Dre started working with Mike Elizondoa bassist, guitarist, and keyboardist who has also produced, written and played on records for female singers such as PoeFiona Apple and Alanis Morissette In the past few years Elizondo has since worked for many of Dr.
Dre's productions. Dre also told Scratch magazine in a interview that he has been studying piano and music theory formally, and that a major goal is to accumulate enough musical theory to score movies. In the same interview he stated that he has collaborated with famed s songwriter Burt Bacharach by sending him hip hop beats to play over, and hopes to have an in-person collaboration with him in the future.
Dre has stated that he is a perfectionist and is known to pressure the artists with whom he records to give flawless performances. Dre had made new artist Bishop Lamont re-record a single bar of vocals times. Dre has also stated that Eminem is a fellow perfectionist, and attributes his success on Aftermath to his similar work ethic.
A consequence of his perfectionism is that some artists who initially sign deals with Dr. Dre's Aftermath label never release albums. To date, none have released full-length albums on Aftermath and have apparently ended their relationships with the label and Dr. Over the years, word of other collaborators who have contributed to Dr. Dre's work has surfaced.

Edmund chased Henry on horseback out of the castle and into a meadow outside. We see the Ghost snapping his fingers, and the meadow suddenly is foggy. Edmund rode out of the fog, at a clearing in the woods, and to find three old witches, who bent over the cauldron Witches : Oooh… Oooh… Oooh… Oooh… Edmund dismounted his horse, stood next to them, and cleared his throat Witches : startled Oooh!

Prince Edmund : No, no, no, no. I'm, I'm really looking forward to it already. Thank you so very much. Prince Harry : smiled Splendid! The bastard. The bastard! Baldrick : appeared next to Edmund If only he were, my lord. Baldrick : If only he were a bastard, my lord. Then you would be regent now.
Prince Edmund : Ah, yes. And one day Percy : appeared next to Edmund and Baldrick You would be king, my lord.
Prince Edmund : Ah, yes, yes. I would be king! And then what? Prince : Precisely! It's just not fair, you know. Every other damn woman in the court has bastards, but not my mother, oh no. She's so damn pure, she hate to look down in case she notices her own breasts.
Queen Gertrude : No. Countess Celia : "No", milady? But think, he will come to your chamber and make mad, passionate love to you! Queen Gertrude : Yes, I wish he wouldn't do that.
Very difficult to sleep with that kind of thing going on. Being used all night long like the outside of a sausage roll. The jesters, the jugglers Queen Gertrude : The great brown ox, steaming and smoldering all night long. Countess Celia : Oh yes, the feast! Queen Gertrude : Sorry? No, I was thinking of something else. Countess Celia : I do hope they've got the Morris dancers.
I love them! Queen Gertrude : Yes. I like the eunuchs. Countess Celia : Oh yes, the eunuchs! I wish I owned one. Queen Gertrude : I wish I'd married one. We cut to Edmund's bedroom Prince Edmund : speaking to a woman who looks very apologetic No, no; fine, fine; it could've happened to anyone. Never mind, never mind. We've only got one act, and she shaved her beard off. Percy : There's always the eunuchs, My Lord.
Prince Edmund : Oh yes, so? The eunuchs and the Amazing Beardless Woman. What a line-up. Percy, there must be someone else, there must be! Prince Edmund : What do they do? Percy : as though that was a silly question They jump, My Lord. Percy : They come in, My Lord, and they jump It's a humorous act.
Prince Edmund : Nah dah dah! There must be something else, surely! Ah, what's this? Percy : No, no, no. I find that very moving, My Lord. Prince Edmund : Well, it better be funny, or Prick will get his comeuppance, I can tell you. Now, book him. Prince Edmund : sarcastic What do they do? Lay eggs? Baldrick : Yes, My Lord. Prince Edmund : desperate Oh, all right, all right, we'll have them, we'll have them.
There was a knock at the door, and Percy opened it to find the messenger holding out a note Messenger : My Lord Percy took the note and slammed the door in the messenger's face. Prince Edmund : slowly, and seriously The eunuchs have cancelled. Baldrick : Oh dear. Prince Edmund : Ha! I should have known, never trust a eunuch! Percy : What are we going to do? Prince Edmund : Well, I know what I'm going to do. Baldrick, give me an execution order. I'm gonna teach them a lesson they'll never forget.
I'll remove whatever extraneous parts of their bodies still remain. Edmund made out the order, and went to the door. Upon opening it, he find the messenger, who was still waiting for his tip, while holding out his hand Messenger : My Lord Prince Edmund : Take that to Lord Chancellor, thank you. Put the order in the messenger's hand and slammed the door Oh God, this is desperate! Percy : We could have the Morris dancers, My Lord. Prince Edmund : Now look, we are not that desperate!
Morris dancing is the most fatuous entertainment ever devised by man. Forty effeminate blacksmiths waving bits of cloth they've just wiped their noses on… How it's still going on in this day and age, I'll never know. Percy : confused Sorry, so do you want them or not? Edmund began jumping, hitting Percy and himself with the paper, looking like a Morris dance. Percy and Baldrick joined in, and all of them hit each other on the head with bits of paper.
Prince Edmund Prince Harry : applauds Ah, splendid! Prince Edmund : Erm, very very well indeed. Umm, I think it's going to have a slightly Spartan look. Prince Harry : What, Greek? Yes, um Prince Harry : Oh good.
Everyone turning up? Prince Edmund : Oh absolutely everyone. So many people in fact, I'm afraid I've had to let the eunuchs go. Prince Harry : Oh no no no no no no! Prince Edmund : No? Prince Harry : No! That won't do at all, not on St. Leonard himself was an eunuch. Edmund, behind Harry, shook his had "No" at Percy Percy : obeyed This Is Not Your Job (Da Lata House Instrumental Mix) head movement, but knows the correct answer Yyyyyes, that's right. Harry, confused at why Percy was shaking his head, turned back to Edmund, who was still shaking his head, and suddenly hit himself on the head with the paper, as though he was just dancing again Prince Edmund : Well, that's why I thought it might be more tactful if— Prince Harry : Oh no no no no no no no.
To leave out the eunuchs on St. Leonard's Day would be like, well, it would be like leaving out the Morris dancers, or the bearded women! Edmund, Percy and Baldrick all pretend to laugh at the absurd thought Prince Harry : Besides, Lord Dougal McAngus, the King's Supreme Commander, is expected at the feast, and, as you know, eunuchs are his particular favorite.
Prince Edmund : confused Hmm? Prince Harry : He's Scottish, you see. Prince Edmund : understands Ahhhh! Prince Harry : Good, good. Well, I'm relying on you, Edmund. Carry on. Some carrot-faced, thistle-arsed Scottish orangutan wants a eunuch, does he? They're just barbarians! Half of them can't even speak English. Baldrick : What do they speak?
Prince Edmund : I don't know, it's all Greek to me. Percy : They speak Greek? Prince Edmund : No, I mean it sounds like Greek. Percy : Well, if sounds like Greek, it probably is Greek. Percy But it sounds like Greek. Prince Edmund : Look, it's not meant to be a brainteaser, Percy! I'm simple telling you that I cannot understand a blind word they're saying!
Percy : Well, no wonder, My Lord, you never learned Greek, of course. Prince Edmund : calmly Percy, have you ever wondered what your insides look like? Percy : Sometimes, My Lord, yes. Prince Edmund : held up a knife, shouted Then I'd be perfectly willing to satisfy your curiosity!
Is that clear?! Is it?! Percy nodded, and Edmund lowered his knife Oh my God, this Scotsman's beginning to annoy me already. I can make things very difficult for him. As for these entertainments, oh, I don't know Baldrick, you've got a beard, This Is Not Your Job (Da Lata House Instrumental Mix) and get yourself a nice dress. Baldrick : excited Oh, great, My Lord! Percy : Yes, My Lord.
Oh, and, Percy Percy : Yes, My Lord? Prince Edmund : Tell him to bring a bear this time. Percy leaves, and Edmund spoke to himself The improvising last year was pathetic! A fanfare was played; enter a man, on horseback, wearing a horned helmet Prince Harry : What the devil?!
Queen Gertrude : excited Oh, but of course! McAngus dismounted his horse, removed his helmet, gave it to the guard, then took a couple bags from his horse, and approached the table Dougal McAngus : Noble Harry, Prince o' Wales, Dougal McAngus greets ye, and lays at yer feet the spoils o' an enemy at war.
Treasures torn from the torsos o' the Turks! Prince Harry : Oh, McAngus! It fills me with joy and hope to see you! Leonard, or die in the attempt. Prince Harry : God forfend! We shall pray for his safe return. Join us! You must be starving. Dougal McAngus : motioned behind him And young Lochinvar?
Prince Harry : looking toward the doorway Oh yes, and him too. Dougal McAngus : Come on, Lochinvar! He stepped over the table and sat down beside her, where Harry had motioned for him to sit, and said to the Queen Ye must be the King's wee bit o' rumpy-pumpy, eh?
Queen Gertrude : confused I am the Queen. Dougal McAngus : Aye, aye. Listen, I got a message for ye. My father asked me tae send his regards tae ye. Queen Gertrude : Do I know him? There was an extremely poorly played fanfare; Edmund entered, and sneered at the trumpeter Prince Harry : Ah, Edmund, there you are. McAngus, this is the man who's providing the entertainments for us tomorrow. Dougal McAngus : Ah, the eunuch! Prince Edmund : holding back his anger, which raises the pitch of his voice Agghh, I am not a eunuch!
Dougal McAngus : Ye sound like one tae me. Dougal McAngus : chuckled Och, ye are, are ye? Prince Edmund : Yes! Nae offense, Yer Majesty. Dougal McAngus : while eating Dinnae apologize. Edmund was quite inflamed; he bent down on his knees, because there were no chairs left Prince Harry : standing up, holding a large document Well, now we've all got to know each other, I have rather a special announcement to make.
Dougal McAngus : Dinnae tell me ye're a eunuch as well! Prince Harry : McAngus, as reward for your heroic deeds in battle, my father here empowers me to grant you anything that you may desire of me. Prince Edmund : sotto voce If he's got any sense, he'll ask for a haircut.
All I ask for is a scrap o' land. Grant me fair Selkirk, and the noble sire of Roxburgh. Prince Edmund : standing up in shock What?! Prince Harry : Very well. By the power invested in me— Prince Edmund : Er, excuse me Erm, I'm sorry to dip my little fly in your ointment, but, er, those lands do, in fact, belong to me.
Prince Harry : as if to say "So? Prince Edmund : Well, so, perhaps, perhaps he'd like to choose somewhere else. Prince Harry : McAngus? Prince Edmund : But that leaves me with Peebles! Dougal McAngus : Oh, aye! And Peebles. Prince Edmund : flabbergasted B-B—But Prince Harry : Are you trying to say something, Edmund? What an absurd idea, giving away half of Scotland to a kilted maniac for slaughtering a couple of syphilitic Turks!
I say, "Let's reward him. So be it! We cut to Edmund's bedroom where Baldrick is in a dress and wig, twirling around in front of Percy, who nodded. Percy : Who, My Lord? Prince Edmund : That stinking Scottish weasel! Baldrick : Why, My Lord? Prince Edmund : Because he's a thieving stinking Scottish weasel, that's why!
Prince Edmund : I'm gonna stab him! Baldrick : Where?
