    A group of us are starting a new project into the uk hiphop scene, and they are relying on me for the beats (lol)

    More or less know what I'm doing except when it comes to structure of a hip hop tune... being a 100% dnb producer this is alien to me...

    does anyone know or can let me in on tip or links or general structure etc on a hip hop instrumental?

    Thanks

    Definitely check out your mobile app store. I saw some good apps relating to this and they're interactive tutorials that don't expire! Good stuff.

    What I know (which is quite little), it's more like intro-verse-hook-verse-hook-outro. Or verse and hook switched around, what do I know. But not like the dnb with a drop until the breakdown, and a next drop.

    I know my first answer seemed like I was trolling, but in fact I wasn't. Future Producers is a forum where 90% of it's content is aimed at hip-hop production. You should defo check it out.
