STBB Monthly Beat Battle #12 Happy Holidays

STBB Monthly Battle #012
December 2019


Happy Holidays Battle

Image

I've been asked to help host the December Monthly Battle, congrats again to Granny David and ruedenz for their win in November! This month there are many holidays being celebrated like Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and more. There are so many overplayed songs during this month on the radio and hearing the same music every year can be boring. I thought it would be a fun idea if for this month we made our own holiday soundtrack through this battle!

I do not have any samples to share as each holiday has its own distinct sounds, it is up to you to find good source material that expresses the season to you personally through the beat you make.

For inspiration, below is a fun one I think shows how creative you can get with the holidays in mind :)




RULES
Your song should be inspired by your winter holiday! Take it in any direction though
No rules on samples - Feel free to use as many or few as needed!
Outside instruments, VST's, drums, cuts/fx allowed!
Acapellas allowed

Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include STBB Monthly 012, and post in this thread by December 26th, 2019 Midnight, Pacific time.
Give feedback and you will receive it back
For easy browsing's sake tracks will be reposted and added to a monthly playlist here: soundcloud.com/stbbcollection
Label entries that are posted after the deadline as 'late entry' and entries that don't comply with the rules as: 'non-entry' in your track title.
Vote in the designated thread by February 1st, 2019 at Midnight, Pacific time
Winner: post new sample, rules, etc by December 29th,, 2019 Midnight, Pacific time and upload the sample here on Google Drive or Mega
(Need samples available for 1 month)

two of my closest friends and co writers that i work with in Nashville flew out here to spend my last Christmas in Japan with me. When I am stateside we always hang on christmas day. We never go home lol. Anyhoo they are happy i am leaving so we can write together a little more easily. Our catalog together is pretty crazy as far as things we have written together and gotten synced and placed. anyhoo. its not a beat so i can label as a non entry if need be. We started this early this morning Jerry played all the horns(he replayed a horn part i found on youtube that somebody sampled lol), LeAnne played drums, (recorded the kit with 4 mics aka glyn jons baby) and i played keys, guitar and bass guitar. Fun stuff. CANT WAIT FOR THE RULES FOR 666 TO DROP...these 2 are pretty twisted in the head like i am so we are gonna make something together for it lol.....anyhoooooooo Been here for almost 5 years. Looking fwd to getting back stateside and engineering as usual and songwriting with the homies. Engineering at a few spots here in japan has been fun and of course slangin wrenches/crewing on helicopters is always fun. HAPPY HOLIDAYS CUZZOS AND CUZZETTES spend time with some folks or some vinyl they both bring joy

Hey All, Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to every mofo on the planet. I did 3 different tacks. Hope all are well.



Here are the tracks used in order.

One of my all time Christmas favorites.






Peace, Hugh
