STBB #728 "What would your favorite beat maker do"

STBB #728 "What would your favorite beat maker do"


I won Wooooooooo!


First of all, I wanted to say I never cared much about winning as much as I did this week as I am just here to sharpen my sword amongst my peers and improve my production. What matters much to me is that I get to the point is that I bring some type of enjoyment to people who listen to my music.

BUT, if I had to win one week this would be THE one. J Dilla has been such a positive force lifting my spirit on a daily basis and I have learned so much from his style of production which I implement into all of music. I'm always thinking "What would Dilla do?" so the theme was very appropriate


That being said, who inspires your production style the most? Let's pay tribute to that this week by making a "tribute" type beat in the style or somewhat resembling your favorite producer by using at least one of the provided samples (mention who they are when you post your beat). Also, I looked up Chick Corea who recently passed(R.I.P) after JoaGymshoe mentioned him so the sample selection will all come from him.





Here they are:

The homie Sweatshirt got that FIRE, so I did a lil something with a "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside" vibe.

Samples - Crystal Silence & Captain Marvel







I wanted a Kanye beat but the sound alluded me.

Yeah me neither. I apologize I know the sample selection isn't the greatest I couldn't find that many sampleable Chick Corea songs. I wish I could add some more options but people are probably already working on stuff.

Thanks for the samples! My take on this week was "What would TUXEDO (Mayer Hawthorne and JakeOne) do?
Quite recently I watched their "rhythym roulette" and how they "just" took some basic elements like drums and created a song on top of it.
I enjoy their music quite a lot and so, fully inspired, I hopped onto my Juno (VST) and recorded way too many layers.

After that i had a hard fiddling in the piano samples. I ended up with two layers of the late great Chick, however as the sample was rather minor/sad I had to cut away all the funk I was first aiming for. Well and this is what I ended up with. Just cannot hear this piano loop anymore so I decided to call it a day ;-)
Clap loop from one of my fav records and my latest gadget XO on the drums.

Yo.

Dope samples from an amazing Jazz musician. R.I.P
Can't really say I have a favourite producer. :hmm: :lol:
To many styles to mention and others I've never heard off.



Used the sample "Spain" some drums and some Bruce Lee Dialog from "Enter The Dragon" Hope that's allowed in the rules...?

Peace Mox.

I would have to say besides Dilla, 9th Wonder is my biggest musical inspiration/favorite beat maker. Sometimes the two are interchangeable for me. I somewhat flipped it using some of the techniques I've observed in his music.

Not sure if I'm allowed to enter this week (If so consider it a non-entry)

Hey All, i dunno. I put Donald Fagen in the art work cause the keys samples reminded me of him but not really. I like that him and Becker got to pick the top session players to work on Steely Dan tracks. Kinda like beat makers get to choose from everything ever recorded to sample. I often put on the Classic Albums making of doc for "Aja" when I can't find anything decent to watch. It never fails to cheer me up. Hope all are well. Peace, Hugh



Here's the doc if anyone wanted to check it out. I like how they break the tracks down on the mixing desk.
