We've now officially wrapped Producers Corner, our exclusive video series in which we grilled our favorite producers about their mysterious craft while following them around their natural habitat: the studio, of course. Over the past few months we've traveled everywhere from New York City to California's Grass Valley to talk to everyone from indie-rock giants Phil Ek, Tim Green, John Vanderslice, hip-hop-and-beyond innovators AraabMUZIK, Zakee, pop stars and all-around Renaissance men Andrew W.K., Teddy Geiger, and more. Here, we've collected the highlights, the most salient pieces of wisdom, and our all-time favorite moments. It's all brought to you by ASUS and Intel. Enjoy.
Andrew W.K. is either a punk rock/heavy metal subversive who just wants to give the kids something to believe in again, or he's the creator of the most simplistic faux-metal ever put on wax and deserves to spend eternity in a small room with Sigue Sigue Sputnik. He's actually a little of both. His music is an unholy mixture of synths, power chords and empowering T-Shirt slogans, all brought to life by Andrew himself -- radiant in filthy denim and T-Shirt, pumping fists and shaking hands.
