Cooking Beats - FrancisGotHeat | 4:00PM
MUST arrive early to guarantee your reserved seat! This interactive producer master class will be modelled after a live reality TV cooking show! But instead of cooking food, we will be Cooking Beats! Our panelist, one of Canada’s most talented up-and-coming beatmakers will be using special ingredients and tools to show the IMSTA audience how to make a killer beat. Whether you are an aspiring beatmaker or an industry professional who has always wondered how beats are made, this Master Class will pull back the curtain and show you why Toronto beatmakers are among the best in the World. Ever wonder where ideas for beats come from? How do you create a beat and what software can you use? What are the stages and growth of the beat? How do you use and recreate samples? Once you have a finished beat, how do you shop it? How do top-liners write over the beat? All of these questions will be answered!

Cooking Beats feat. FrancisGotHeat at IMSTA FESTA TO 2017

Rising from the rapidly growing Toronto contemporary R&B scene, Francis Nguyen-Tran, now known as “FrancisGotHeat,” has built a strong reputation for himself as one of the hottest producers going.
As well as working with Drake on his More Life ballad ,4422, Francis has joined forces with another OVO star, Roy Woods, working closely on many tracks together. The producer has also branched out to the TDE camp, producing hip-hop tracks for both Ab-Soul and Isaiah Rashad, as well as even dropping beats for Detroit’s biggest stars, Big Sean and Eminem on “No Favors,” along with fellow producer,
WondaGurl — the pair also linked up for Bryson Tiller’s “Blowing Smoke.”
After admitting to producing beats since the age of 13, the now 20-year-old star told Noisey about his first break: I’ve been producing, technically, since I was 13, so like seven years now. I was always just making beats and putting them online and people started really liking them, I guess I didn’t officially get into the industry until 2013 when I got my first album placement with Tre Mission.
As his production pallet expands from R&B to hip-hop, while his reputation expands from underground Toronto to worldwide recognition, FrancisGotHeat continues to prove why he is one of the best producers in the game.
