The evolution of music technology has had a significant impact on how popular music is produced. This video project focuses on topics that range from the origins of sampling to the manipulation of sound files, as in the case of recent artists such as Justin Beiber turning vocal riffs into sampled audio that can then be played like a synthesizer. Many producers mentioned in this study, i.e., SG Lewis, Diplo, and Skrillex, influenced the production trends used in the pop genre as well as cross-blending genres. However, this study also reveals that female music producers are less recognized and highlights the fact that the majority of the music industry remains a male-dominated field.
