Yo whats good?
Hope everyone is doing ok.Heart out to my brothers & sisters in Beirut -Lebanon..
Congrats to Billinski x P.SUS & Per.Du! Really enjoyed the samples. They were fucking majestic.. Used both but harvested more from Per.Du's as there was a lot of choice.
Made a pretty long beat (double checked there were no time restriction's re length of beat) it's more a narrative to take you on a bit of journey.. Made a sound scape skit taking you through a local pub then driving downtown for a night out at the discotheque.. Made a few beats for each destination using the samples provided. Only drum breaks used for outside musical audio. Got the SFX, foley and atmos from a friend.
Yo good luck to everyone. Big up yourselves.. This is an inspiring community and am grateful to be here taking part.
I read Buttaslick's post.. I'm not an extrovert but it's a nice occasion.. So I'll gladly share a lil bit. My first ever STBB was #271 I remember I battled along before a couple times but didn't have the confidence to post stuff online. My first submission was met with such positive and encouraging vibes from everyone. It really helped me grow a bit from a musical standpoint. The cats on the message boards were mad inspiring and there was for sure an awesome camaraderie. You would learn so much from each other even if you didn't say much. Just hearing everyones styles & techniques was great exposure. Sadly life happened and I had a shift in priorities. For the longest time I didn't''t post any beats online - hell I wasn't even really making beats all that much anymore. I reckon 8 year had passed... My confidence was fucked and I was scared of failure so that it stopped me from even creating at all.. (not like a fear of failure but more just not thinking anything is good enough) For me making things is really important and I finally broke down the barrier this year and ended the drought. I'm super stoked to have been able to contribute to this forum. Don't be scared of fucking it up.. it's all part of the process. Right.. this is heading towards corny ass territory but I reckon yous all get the gist. Big respect to the people that kept this alive.. even when SoundCloud is dead.. It's like when you see a flower growing outta concrete and Big love to everyone making shit for fun.. as it should be!!
Bless up you lot!
