    Cool mix Rain103, and JefDam, I dig the 6/8 over 4/4 of "Heavy," and what I think are Led Zeppelin drums on "Stout Paw."

    Cheers, boss.

    The drums on Stout Paw are Sandy Nelson. Turns out you can kind of polish turds.


    Couple of new jawns.






    (Thinking of revisiting the drums on Nostalgia...)

    I've been very unproductive lately, and worry I'm going to be left with hundreds of unfinished tracks on my laptop. This is the only thing I've done recently that's worth sharing - familiar boom bap sample but I don't think it's been flipped like this before:



    EDIT: longer now.

  • That was cool, Duder!

    I have new stuff but can't figure out how to successfully post soundcloud links.

    Just post the url

    although this doesn’t work in Safari - you will have to manually type the link.

    Horns on the first half are sick, love the hazy ass vibe to this. 


  • A couple from the past year:

    Nice dreamy sounds from that Streetcorner thing and a decent beat Ketan.

    Feedback? My usual habit of flipping a sample in as many ways as possible within one track - have I over-egged it? I could probably make two or three separate beats, but I think it hangs together...

    I like it. My only nit is with the vocal samples and the delay time used. When the samples aren't placed on downbeats, the delay makes them sound "out-of-time"/off-rhythm. I'd line them up on time/beat, or I'd vary the delay type and length so that each distinct vocal sample sounds like it fits the rhythm of the track.

    Nit-picky, I know...

  • Here's one from a beat battle event I entered in December. I was a runner up.
    Listening back I would fix the mix up a bit but I was working against the clock.

    This sounds like dope movie score music, I think the different flips work. I like how the bassline gets to breathe around the 1:20 mark.

    This is great! For me there's never enough overcooked hammond samples in beats. I'd have voted for you.


  • I am glad you liked it Klezmer. I did this Artifacts remix today...

    Accidental double post.

    Mashed this fucker out on Sunday afternoon. Very pleased with it, but realised when it was finished that the bassline sounds like a (very unintentional) bite of Busta Rhymes "Woo-ha":

    Very nice!

  • Just put together a little visual for this one: 



  • Btw what equipment/DAWs are people using? I'm on Ableton 9 suite w/ a macbook air. Plus an onyx blackjack USB interface for recording vocals + instruments. Started off using MPK mini / Arturia minilab pretty heavy, but now doing most of the chops within Ableton

    Ableton 9 on my Lenovo laptop with rips from my record collection. D-D-Das all folks!

    Mostly hardware. Some iPhone apps for sound sources!

    Dope... mobile digging sounds intriguing. What kinds of apps if you don't mind me asking?

    Sure-- For starters, Launchpad, Sample Toy, iKaossilator, DJ Rig, Traktor DJ, Dub Siren, Groovemaker, BeBot... A bunch of synths and drum machines, and both an MPC and Roland-type bass module that I forget the name of.
