STBB #617

Dark side/light side - 2 for 1

Image

Thanks so much for the likes, listens and comments last week - I truly appreciate it all.

Make two flips. Make one dark af - moody, nasty, dirty, you know the score. Let's call this the dark side - a beat which encapsulates all the fears and anxieties you, or anyone else, might have about the world we live in right now. Fill that dark energy into your beat and burn it...

Make another flip. Call this the light side. Make this as smooth, light and comforting as you can. Let this one reflect any hopes and positivity you might have for 2019.

Use one or more of the samples below

Other rules

  • 4 minute time limit
  • No outside full acapellas
  • No outside melodic samples
  • Everything else ok
Happy beatmaking, and have a great 2019!

Congrats on the win Elan, look forward to checking out the samples. I got a busy week ahead but hopefully I might get time to knocked something together... Roll on the New Year when I can get back on these more regularly as I miss not entering these

I've been wanting to make a track with multiple complimenting different tracks in it for while, so this was a great first attempt.

I have my light part with it's 90's bumpin hip hop groove and happy little bell runs etc, then I change to a totally different beat, then build on that to make it really crazy, along with some aggressive distorted string chops and pitched down vocal one shots.



I admit I could have gone much more extreme with each, but I like that i've made it so it still sounds like one cohesive track.

I used several different samples from 'Tu Tu Hai Wahi' and 'Ugo Calise - Occhi Di Mare'
- I threw in some vocal samples from The Sopranos to help with the narrative

As for the rules, the track begins with some dark thoughts and then builds towards a more positive vibe




Happy New Year!

uhhh dude i might have effed up. were we supposed to make the dark beat the first part and the happy part at the end?? i made both moods but wanted to make sure we didnt have to order them a certain way. if so lemme know lol i gotta change my track to non entry if its dark to light. i didnt even think about that part until Granny David posted his beat. haha lemme know bro!!! cheers to the new year!!!!

Nah bruv it's all good :)

As you long as you have two contrasting dark side and and light side beats, you've followed the rules. Either order is totally fine

Looking forward to hearing your beatssss!
