‘Super-producer’ Timbaland coming to Metropolis in January

Metropolis will host a masterclass with ‘super-producer’ Timbaland next month.

Organised in association with The Guardian, ‘In The Studio With Timbaland’ offers a chance to find out how the producer scored hits for the likes of Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott and Aaliyah.

At the event, which takes place on January 25th and 26th at Metropolis Studios in London, Timbaland will deconstruct some of his best-known records using the original multi-tracks, reveal some of his studio secrets and share anecdotes from his illustrious career.

The small and exclusive audience will also get the opportunity to participate in an informal Q&A with the star, who commented: “I’m really hyped about being back in London in January to share some production secrets at Metropolis Studio. The master class is an exciting idea!”

Ian Brenchley, Metropolis CEO, said: “Timbaland’s pioneering work in the studio has meant he’s been the go-to guy for a number of artists over the years. He’s very open musically – don’t forget he’s worked with people like Chris Cornell and Björk in addition to the pop and hip-hop stuff – he’s a true genre-busting genius!”
