Music production has moved away from the tactile into the realm of clicking, dragging, and manipulating pixels on a screen to make sounds. Some die-hards doggedly stick to their drum machines and samplers. In hip-hop, some of these machines are legendary and responsible for some of the biggest hits in the hip-hop canon. Many of D.C.'s subterranean trackmakers are still banging away on them in search of the perfect beat. Sample a whole buffet of beats at Bohemian Caverns during Attack of the Beat Machines, where local producers will be rocking their creations soundclash-style to determine who knocks the hardest. -- Rhome Anderson (June 2010)
