STBB 706 - Ronald Bell tribute

Image

Ronald Bell, one of the founding members of Kool & The Gang left us the other day. Rest in Funk, Ronald.

Let's celebrate the music he helped spawn (including music from all our favourite sample-happy producers and MC's). This week is Ronald Bell tribute week.

Rules:

• Flip something from the provided sample pack. Anything goes.
• Track must be under 2:00

DO's/DON'Ts:
• Do use anything you want (outside drums and bass, played instruments, VST, vocal chops, acapellas, ...)
• Don't use outside musical samples


Samples:

... Sorry guys. I didn't include Summer Madness. That would simply be too easy to flip ;-)

(I only have the songs as MP3's - if anyone have them in HQ are welcome to share).

Not optional: Have fun ! :D :D :D :D
Love, KC.

Very fitting tribute. I'm From Jersey City , so the group is a source of local pride. Even more because Ricky West, one of the original members is my godfather. Growing up before they hit it big, my Mom used to cook for them because they had so little, with 7 members splitting 150 a gig. This is for the home team. We all Come Home eventually.

RIP Ronald Bell.

Kool and the gang is always dope material.

I got up early this morning, and rustled up my beat....
Chopped the samples, messed around with some drums. Made some loops and played around with the chops.
I also added some of the gang doing a bit of acapcal and some kung fu movie dialogue, hope that's cool.



Hope the levels are alright. Not much EQ's and Filters this week.

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