King Stays King: Keynote Interview with Timbaland @ ASCAP Experience 2023 (6/21/21, LA)
You can divide the history of R&B, hip-hop and pop production into two eras: pre-Timbaland and post-Timbaland. This sonic scientist has been expanding our minds for over 25 years with his futuristic beats and unerring ear for a hook. In the late ‘90s, Timbaland’s collaborations with Ginuwine, Aaliyah and Missy Elliott changed the sound of radio, building unearthly grooves out of strange sounds that propelled these incredible talents into superstardom. He charted new sonic territory in the 2000s with Justin Timberlake (“SexyBack”), OneRepublic (“Apologize”), Nelly Furtado (“Promiscuous”) and Madonna (“4 Minutes”), amassing a bulletproof canon of massive hits. In the years since, Timbaland has left his stamp on film/TV scoring, production music, book publishing and beyond. More recently, Timbaland united the world during the pandemic with VERZUZ, which brought us epic battles between many of music’s greatest names. And he’s paying it forward with his new platform BeatClub, an all-in-one solution for music creators. Don’t miss this in-depth conversation with one of the most innovative musical minds of our era. You’ll hear about the sounds that inspired Timbaland on his way to the top, and what inspires him to stay ahead of the curve today.
