STBB #740 "Spanky Wilson Week"

Sat May 08, 2021 1:48 pm

Spanky Wilson Week!
Image

I want to use the choice of samples to shine the spotlight on one of my favorite soul/funk singers and her strong band: Spanky Wilson.
I became aware of Spanky by chance while digging and the pressure of her songs sounds as if they had already produced hip hop at the studio in the 60s.

Samples: https://we.tl/t-fkuwU1OuFX

Rules: Use what you want and as much as you want of the samples, but use Spanky Wilson's vocals at least once (in whatever way). Except for bass, EVERYTHING must be built from the samples. Don't worry, there are hard drums included.


Allowed: Outside Bass
Not allowed: No outside melodic samples, drums, acapellas, synth sounds or anything else.

The Fine Print
Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "740“ in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.
Try to leave as much feedback as you can and you will receive it back.
For easy browsing's sake, you can also go to the STBB page: 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.
EVERYONE VOTES - by Friday at Midnight, Pacific time
Winner: post new sample, rules, etc by Saturday at Noon, Pacific time and upload the sample here: wetransfer.com/


Have fun guys!

In addition, I would like to say that your encouragement has given me a lot right now. I am currently fighting my way back from a severe depression into everyday life and besides all the Corona madness, I also have a lot of stress at work. The victory was the first thing in a long time that put a huge smile on my face.

Thank you for this and also a big thank you to all the people who have kept the Beat Battles alive beyond the old forum.

I participated for the first time about 7 years ago, at that time under a different name, and I never thought I would win. I take my hat off to all the strong producers here and hereby open the battle!

Hey Y'all,
I wanted to submit early because I have a full week.. All sounds are from the samples.

Hopefully I'll have time to update the Mix



Luckily I had Kissing My Love on vinyl so I took it for a spin to add some live flavor- fun times :)

Lead Melody was constructed from the light my fire sample, chopped, then layered/re-played with a one note patch.
Most of the bass (2tracks) is just layering the sample with some low end.

Kick is from sunshine of your love, snare too. Perc and hihats from kissing my love, one snare layer from light my fire, stacked with the others. Open hihat from sunshine of your love.

Vocal chops are from kissing my love, isolated and chopped.

lost an almost finished version of this beat to a crash, could reconstruct&recover most of the work but not all unfortunately.. I hate when I forget to save regularly….


thx for the nice challenge!
