Beat Making Lab

What's In the Backpack?


A Beat Making Lab is an electronic music studio small enough to fit in a backpack. We build Labs in collaboration with communities all around the world; donating laptops, microphones, software and other equipment. From our first Beat Making Lab in DR-Congo, producer Apple Juice Kid reaches into the backpack and reveals some of the tools that we use.
