STBB #836 - David Axelrod

Fri Mar 10, 2023 4:10 pm

STBB #836

Image
One of my (and most of hip hop's) favorite composers, David Axelrod, is this week's sample. His stuff is packed with great sample ideas. I haven't been a part of the STBB community long enough to know whether or not he's already been used (more than likely), so I went on the hunt to get his last, self-titled, album.

Cool story behind the record. Even though it was released in 2001, the basics were recorded like 30 years prior. Dude was a badass and got shit done.

Congrats on the win!

Only used an outside kick, sub bass and the one shot vocals. It could be a no outside samples week!

Filtered and rechopped a drum break on part of the album. Used the filtered low end as the driving harmony of the beat. Sampled a vocal chorus from the album also and tucked it in the background.

Yo!

What's good peeps?

Nice sample this week,
chilled afternoon cook up. :blunted:
I took a real small chop selection, just 16 chops altogether.
Used the low end for the bass.
Pitched it up +3? added some drums. 16 level one of the horn chops for extra flavour.


:salute: :vulcan: :peace:
Peace Mox.
