We value community and enjoy bringing folks together. Together we learn and grow. The "We" perspective is infinitely more powerful than the "I" perspective.
HipHop culture is where modbap was born. Our aim is to add to the culture and bring like minds together via music-tech. In HipHop we have always used music tech tools that weren't designed by us or for our genre. Modbap is the first black owned and designed eurorack synth company. Our tools are made for hiphop.
Modbap was born out of experimentation and pushing the boundaries. We encourage experimentation in the spirit of creativity, art, technology, teaching, and learning.
We love sampling and synthesis equally. As a core component of hiphop and boombap music, sampling is a core production technique. We embrace it as such.
We love synthesis and sampling equally. As a transformative, sometimes technical, and highly creative form of expressiveness, synthesis is anything and everything imaginative.
We proudly enjoy syncopated and quantized beatmaking as much as we love off-grid sloppy drum programming.
