Beat Makers: Left Brain
Photography: Jeff Potocar The Stussy Make Beats Contest is about the fun of modern music making and invites everyone to upload their original tracks for a chance to win some big prizes. We had many great submissions to the SoundCloud Stussy Make Beats Contest page and wanted to interview some of our favorite beat makers to see how they got started, what equipment they currently use and what they feel makes a good beat.
