Things are now truly underway at our brand new school in Los Angeles. We were very excited to recently welcome established producer DiViNCi through the doors of PBLA in Mack Sennett Studios for an exclusive Ableton masterclass. DiViNCi is a founding member and producer of Orlando-based hip-hop group Solillaquists of Sound, and works with Grammy award-winning icon Lauryn Hill. Over the years, he’s gained notoriety for using Akai MPCs in a way the world has never seen before.
DiViNCi led a Ableton Live and Ableton Push masterclass at PBLA, discussing his production and performance setups, as well as sharing his valuable experience in navigating the music industry to become a successful full-time musician. He also wowed our PBLA students with a mini performance of a couple of his most recent routines, and finished out the session with a very informative Q&A session.
In addition to his work with Lauryn Hill and Solillaquists of Sound, DiVINCi’s versatility has allowed him to collaborate with artists of all shapes and forms including MF Doom, Kool Keith, Sage Frances, EL-P and Doug Wimbish (Living Colour) to name a few. Although he’s currently working on various musical projects, DiViNCi also finds the time to teach, tour and work on music. The latest Solillaquists of Sound album ‘The 4th Wall’ is out now.
