STBB #613 - Collaboration Week

Sat Dec 01, 2018 7:35 am

STBB #613
Thanks to all for the votes and support. Special shouts to my guardian angels B-Jam and Joa for their guidance!

Image

As is tradition at STBB, the first week of December is dedicated to the great Nelson Mandela. This is celebrated by having a collaboration battle week.
Please team up in pairs. Solo entries welcome but please note that they are not eligible for the win.
The comp is open for an extra day for the sake of giving people time to collaborate, so entries to be submitted by Thursday Midnight.


So, Nelson Mandela is preparing a feast in the heavens for himself and 2 buddies.
You must choose 2 legends for him to dine with...

RULES:

Pick only 1 out of these 5 musicians to sample as the main part of your track
(I have provided a full track by each of the artists below for you to use)

Thelonious Monk
Curtis Mayfield
Ludwig van Beethoven
David Axelrod
Miles Davis


Musical Samples:
https://we.tl/t-0cBNGKcnz5

Then pick only 1 of these 5 legends for vocals:
(Samples taken from interviews, movie scenes and small parts of acapellas)

Michael Jackson
Bruce Lee
Oliver Reed
Tupac Shakur
'Macho Man' Randy Savage


Vocal Samples:
https://we.tl/t-jkrYccyMt2

The idea is to collaborate 1 of the 5 musician's music from list #1 - with the vocals of a legendary figure from list #2 (So for example - Miles Davis & Bruce Lee, or Beethoven & Macho Man Randy Savage, or whatever you choose)

SPECIAL RULE Everyone must use at least one chop from the Nelson Mandela sample provided, even if you just use a few chopped up words and put in reverse! I guess you could call this rule Nelson Mandelatory..

Outside Bass and Drums ALLOWED
Use of external synths/live instruments ALLOWED, but they need to be minimal as the music samples provided should be the main focus of your track
Raps ALLOWED but no other outside samples or accapellas
No time limit
Have fun!

FINEPRINT:
Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB ###“ in the title, and post in this forum by THURSDAY Midnight, Pacific time.
Give feedback and you will receive it back.
For easy browsing's sake tracks will be reposted and added to a weekly playlist here: https://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 Friday at Midnight, Pacific time
Winner: Post new sample, rules, etc by Saturday Noon, Pacific time and upload the samples using https://wetransfer.com

not sure how this usually goes down but Ive got a sample loop if anyones interested and wants to add drums or other elements?....if not Im a free agent and can be quite handy with the drums (patterns, breaks and sounds that is, I couldnt actually play a drum set to safe my life) I can also rap to some degree and perform some scratches. So to summarise I am a jack all trades and a master of none :roll: :lol:
