Sunday Sample…Crunch? SSC#9
If you didn’t already know, in the last two months, around 15 beatmakers have created more than 50 new tracks using the same set of samples. It started as a little sample competition a few months ago and every Sunday since then a bunch of us have been getting high on sample chops. We agree a sample on Saturday and submit a track on Sunday. It’s pretty much my favourite thing on DT right now. Sunday service.
Anyway, this post if for my fellow beat makers on the SSC: if you wanna get onto it, read the end of the post.
So this week we had another nice selection, flipping a superb sample from MiS, which turned out to be tougher than it sounded: Click the name to hear the track…
Comment of the week: “I could get a rub and tug to this track.”
Now, I dunno if people are worried about voting but some of us do, some of us don’t. If you wanna vote, so do it on the forum thread. Personally, it’s just cool to see how a bunch of producers I respect deal with the same sample in a short period of time. I genuinely chill and listen to everyone’s tracks – usually quite a few times.
In fact, Sunday Sample ‘Clash’ makes it sound like it’s all about the completion, so I’m going to rename it SUNDAY SAMPLE CRUNCH – the next one is still SSC#10.
And now we’ve hit 10 I figure I should do a little compilation. Can you all send me your beats… unless anyone else wants to do a compilation?
Plus, we need to get some of them DT beat legends out of retirement too… pass on the message about SSC if you see Beathic, Mic Checker, V is Pimptight, Roach Killa, Realstyles, Biggs, Watkins, Dutch, DJ Ginsu and wone2 etc.
If you want in on the next Sample Crunch email me on Kristikrisis at gmail dot com (in fact, can everyone on SSC do that so we can share the samples over email) and watch out for the thread in the forums on Saturday. We try to get the sample agreed by lunchtime California time.
