Content is king.

Over years of producing with top names in the business, I learned what it takes to be successful and over the years of teaching, I learned how and why so many producers fail to meet their goals. At the end of the day there is one factor that separates the successful producers from broken dreamers: output.

There are three magic tweaks that, when used together, are able to more than DOUBLE the rate at which people achieve their personal goals, regardless of whether the goals are about fitness, creativity, or whatever else.

  1. Turning goals into an Action Plan and formally committing to a series of deadlines.

  2. Creating 3rd Party Accountability for the deadlines in the Action Plan.

  3. Sharing updates with the 3rd Party, ideally on a weekly basis.

These three factors used together are how I have been able to Remix My Life, finally getting regular with working out, finally quitting drinking, quitting nicotine, writing in my journal daily, and doing timer beats every single day.

Using these factors together makes discipline a no-brainer and the entire Dojo is built on this.


Producer Dojo is the best thing I have ever done. Releasing chart topping music, traveling all over the world, setting the record for the most sets at a single Burning Man, selling out solo headline shows, playing for crowds of 10000 and even 15,000 people at once, meeting Bill Gates, selling my farts to Microsoft, making ringtones for the Windows Phone, getting a visa to move to the USA, making and releasing 5 studio albums, making official music for Star Wars -

that stuff was all cool but these were just MY accomplishments. These just furthered my OWN ends. It was fun and it felt good to accomplish these things, I loved the validation of it, but there’s a level at which these are selfish accomplishments born of ego and vanity.

I have touched lives with my art, but I TRANSFORM lives with Producer Dojo. There is a big difference in how it feels. It's satisfying at a whole other level and I am HOOKED!

This is why the slogan of Producer Dojo is
“Remix Your Life”.
I really, truly mean that shit from the bottom of my soul.


This is a much deeper transformation than most people think - and it does take effort - but it’s not magic, it’s not impossible, and with the right friends it’s actually a whole lot of fun. In fact it is the single most fun and rewarding thing a music lover can do with their time. You have to step outside your comfort zone, you have to be ruthlessly honest with yourself, you have to make a lot of mistakes along the way, but it is more deeply satisfying than anything else in life ever.

YES, I'M READY TO REMIX MY LIFE!

One on One Coaching Sessions

Having a Guide makes all the difference


This is hands down the most important part of this membership. I cannot stress this enough. Working one-on-one with a coach will be the backbone of your growth in Producer Dojo. 
When you have a professional producer working alongside you, you'll take the fast path around the noise and be able to focus on embracing your strengths and strengthening your weaknesses in every phase of your production. I'm 100 percent positive that your music means something personal to you; and your training deserves to be personalized for you.

 

These Senseis have gone through my programs, they’ve released on my label, and they know EXACTLY what it takes to gain significant progress because they've already done it.

Every month you’ll meet with one of our Dojo Senseis and you’ll get an hour video session. During this session, your Sensei will help you breakthrough any of the blocks you may be currently facing. They’ll be your coach and they’ll hold you accountable to your goals and deadlines.

Not only will you get one-on-one coaching with your Sensei, but I’m throwing in a couple of badass bonuses!
You'll have EVERYTHING you need to be successful.

400+ hours of on demand training

The Weekly Download is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to close the gap between your music and the music you're inspired to make. When you work with a Sensei, the hundreds of hours of tutorials inside will become an encyclopedia for your growth and training.


Even if you signed up, raided the downloads and cancelled, you'd still have hundreds of dollars in new tools.

 

You'll enjoy access to the full archive of weekly downloads (over 220 weeks and counting) including LIVE Workshops, a growing archive of VIP tools, sound packs, templates, samples & presets for the modern producer.

Here's just a handful of Weekly Download Episodes

This pack of multisample Moog sub
patches has been in the shop for $15 for years, and is guaranteed to give your low end an analog sound!

A must watch for the producers that have not seen the infinite drum rack. Learn the techniques that ill.Gates used to change modern electronic production

Other producer's stems are often one of the hardest things to get for a song; good thing ill.Gates included his in The Weekly Download!

The Moog One is an $8,000 synth but the multisample patches are ready to be loaded into any DAW and can be downloaded directly from the video library.

The follow up to the Infinite Drum Rack takes a deeper dive into customization, programming and detail to show you exactly how to build off of the "128" technique.

The 3 Drum Rack method is not only a staple in the ill.Gates Workflow, but is also featured in multiple workshops where attendees spent $50 for a seat. Today, it's just another perk of your Weekly Download Membership!

The Bass racks have been available on the shop for years, and there's always been producers looking to get a little more oomph, movement, and texture out of their basses. Good thing you'll be able to download it in The Weekly Download!

Analog gear has never been "cheap" so being able to take advantage of it has always come at a cost. With Hardware wavetables you'll have the tone of analog synths with the flexibility and power of Serum!

Samples pulled directly from Bobo's Moog aren't going to cost you $15 in the shop anymore. There's never too many analog sounds to go around when you want rich, smooth, and full-bodied synths!

unlimited track feedback

 

Track feedback is such a valuable thing that any producer can have at any skill level. Even I send out tracks for feedback regularly! it's one of the best ways to learn where I can keep improving my production.

In addition to track feedback from the Senseis whenever you like, we also have a recurring stream on fridays with LIVE track feedback from ill.Gates, the Senseis, and special guests from outside the Dojo!

 

“Track Feedback is essential not just as a feature, but it is a reflection of how the industry and creation truly works in a community setting.

By having others listen into your tracks, it’s like having another pair of ears that can help you find things you may have missed and give you the ability to unlock new ideas based off addressing the track in how another person perceives it.

Iterating through feedback has given me numerous gains in finding new potential in my music by understanding what another person is hearing and digging into new methods to address sound design and composition when compared to the methods taught with Producer Dojo.”

-Knard

"Having skilled producers give your tracks a fresh pair of ears is so invaluable!”

-Kevin (KFiSH)

“Feedback from the mentors has been essential to me growing as an artist/producer. It’s a very long journey and it helps immensely to be able to reach out to someone and simply clarify things.

A great example of feedback for me is learning to let go of ideals and just focus on the best parts of the song. To have someone with no emotional attachment and fresh ears point out the best part of your tracks has been key.”

-Like Water

“The Dojo track feedback has been a real game changer for me. Tracks I would have considered ‘finished’ before the dojo are now usually just first drafts.

The sensei feedback is usually spot on and most importantly, actionable. Many of my releases these days have seen feedback from at least one to three senseis over their course.”

-Captain

 

Featuring Weekly track feedback streams!

Every Wednesday and Friday on DOJOTV you can join our live track feedback streams with one of our amazing guests which have included Protohype, Chomppa, ill.Gates, and more! In addition to this, 6TH STREET hosts his own track feedback on alternating Mondays. You'll be amazed when you see how interactive track feedback can be when the keyboard barrier is broken. 

ill.Gates will be joining Feedback Fridays monthly to provide track feedback directly to you and the other ninjas. There's never been a better time to tune in and get feedback from ill.Gates than right now - this will not be around forever if hundreds of producers are looking for feedback each month!

 

The Producer Dojo mixtapes, called cyphers, have been a staple on the label since its inception and it's become so much more over the past few months. I've played entire sets of cypher tracks and ninjas have even gotten gigs from promoters who listened to the cyphers!

For this entire time, it was only available for submission by the select ninjas in the Class of 808. But now you can have access to the cyphers right away when you remix your life!
