    ..okay, looks like the community is stepping up... good. now.. while we're at it.. how about some more interesting rules and samples ? barring the occasional highlight.. 'lonius' it has all been a bit bland.. haven't really been challenged of late.. so just a reminder of some cool rules of the past: BPMs, structures/ chorus/ hooks[ drops , fieldrecordings. use your body, monophonic, flip according to a picture, 4/5 time, reverse, reverbless, record own drums, unquantized, organic, make a video to go with your beat... etc. and many themes, like: zombies, distopia, halloween, xmas, love, gangster lovesong, dusty, underwater, edm, reggae, jazz.....and so forth.. plus sample picking: we've had whole themed packs: Bollywood, Eastern European, Drumkits, winner's played keys, single tracks without drums, acapellas, spoken pieces, country, etc etc.. this just to spark your imaginations somewhat.. pz Joa

    In light of recent events - messages I got considering the voting deadline and process to be judged unfairly e.g. - let me tell you this: I've been doing the voting/setting up vote threat on my own for the last few weeks. It takes about 3/4 of an hour to an hour each and every week. I'm not complaining, just mentioning, bc you might not know that it's a lot of work. I don't have a lot of time, especially not 9 am on my only spare day, which is saturday. If you find mistakes or mixups, thats cool. Message me/superfly/barry (please come back guys!!!!) and one of us will correct them asap IF you have proof. BUT: If you wanna bitch around - keep it for guys/girls that give a fuck. We spend enough time organizing round here doing the "dirty work". We all just wanna hit the studio and jam. If you want sth. to change or be changed THATS NICE. BUT DO SOMETHING. Complaining is easy. THIS BATTLE IS USER-MODERATED and this means, moderation ist NOT limited to the few who actually seemed to care about this for the last weeks. (big s/o to all the ones who actually cared/asked/eg.) feels like the rest is just up for free comments and likes? I hope not. Suggestions: If your vote is close to the deadline, WHY NOT MENTION THAT IN YOU POST? If your Entry is late, WHY NOT MENTION THAT IN YOUR TRACK TITLE? thank you.

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? I'm a Philadelphia resident who grew up in the mountains north of it. I moved to Philly when I went to college for Illustration. My portfolio site is https://supaflyart.me/ I used to spell my musician name as "Arturro" because I thought the misspelling would make it easier to Google, but I decided to give that up after I had already been on 3 separate Bandcamp album thingies and signed up for this site to do the beat battles. Whoops! 2. How did you make use of the sample? I took a part with some nice horns I could sample in some way, and then I dropped the right channel and made the left track Mono because that effectively took the drums out of the sample, giving me a much easier time messing with it and making use of the horns how I wanted. For the parts where it gets all metal-sounding, I sped the track up double time and put a resonator on the sample and just kinda messed around with the settings til I got something I liked. I wish I had EQ'd the higher pitches on the metal down. 3. How did you incorporate the rules? I faked a little DJ intro and outro as well as an interview where I ask myself a question. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? I have no creative capacity when it comes to drum patterns or anything like that so I gave something a shot and tried a drum look where the drums were super overblown but it sounded awful (naturally) and I almost gave up, but then I just tried a simple drum track and it worked when I finally found a snare I liked. That was pretty much it, like I said, I have no creative capacity for drums. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? I use Ableton Live with a couple vsts and a MIDI keyboard (with a broken power supply at the moment) and a guitar (that I need to buy an interface for so I can plug it into my computer). 6. Anything else you wanna add? I press buttons and sounds come out

    Man, I'm notorious for posting 5-10 mins before the deadline. I can usually tell who entered late, but I never say anything. It seems like the one time I did, our mods then were like, "It's not really that big of a deal." I guess I can start putting the actual time (US Pacific) on my post if I know it's close to the deadline, since the forum only clocks by the hour. Come on Per.du, that never happens... lmao I know modding sucks and people are gonna try to break rules if there are rules to break, but thank you for all your effort.

    ..so some have perfected the loop... mix.. ..a specific sound.. others build whole tracks with progression and / or crazy switchups etc... I often tend to judge beats on the abillity of the beatmaker.. even if it's a dope track, when I know he/she can do better I'm inclined to rate it less highly... and vice versa..when I hear someone is makig progress and I can hear the potential I really consider it for a vote ... obviously me writing this came about cozz of the beats presented this week.. wackpaco.. 01:09 - 02:25 !!!.. that part made have the most energetic physical reaction of all beats.. NOD PLUS! Olos + Kautzalleinen + BleuEar.. some serious 'chords' struck! .. emotional = physical LangaLunts.. man.. if you make progression in your mixes.. sky's the limit!.. sick beats barty b.. muted / filtered mix.. but damn!.. and I can go on and on.. some exceptional work this week.. ... beatCretin.. MA Beats.. defMute..Lokal..Hobgob..Fat von vote?.. pondering/ pending

    How do your kids influence you in terms of making music? Do they put you up on things they're listening to? That's another good question. I got a son who's in high school, I got a son who's just going into kindergarten, and a daughter who's just learning to walk. I get a wide range of reactions to guage. They are always involved in it at some level, whether it's my daughter--'cause if she's going to sleep, there's only certain kinds of music that I can play to keep her calm. My son is the second in succession going up in age, five years old, and he loves music. When I'm programming, he's always coming in the room; he wants to do my album. It's to the point where I have to make him my assistant. So really, he's my second set of ears, and he listens to it as it's being made and sees the process. And I'll just look over at him and guage his reactions. Certain things, he'll be like, "Turn it off, that's wack." And I'll be like, "What do you know about 'wack'?" I use the terminology without really hearing myself, and he'll tap into it. Then my oldest son, he's in the eleventh grade. He was born around the time of Black Bastards. He's been with me through the whole thing, seen all the records. He's more laid-back; he's not so up-front musically. He more draws and paints and stuff like that. But he enjoys music. Sometimes, I check his iPod out to see what he's fucking with. Between all three of the ages, that's like my guage, really, as well as my own ear. DOOM in WaxPoetics, 2008.

    ...yeah man.. we had that one too once.. could use alternatives as drums.. and there was also a 'synthesize' your own drums week once or twice.. go all out! .. 1. yes.. simple.. always been that way.. just do it guys. 2. more 'dirty'work for someone?.. the times are all in the FAQ and Topic Starts : Midnight Wednesday LA time/ 09:00 Thursday morning Europe - posting beat deadline Midnight Friday LA time/ 09:00 Saturday morning - voting deadline Noon Saturday LA time/ 21:00 Satiurday evening Europe - sample posting deadline If winner doesn't show - runner up or any particapant may do it - mention it here first though How simple can it be... calculate and remember ( write down ) your own times for where you are situated 3. and 4. post your beats whenever you want.. just lable them right for voting sake. the SC STBB Collection page is a seperate entity made after SC Groups ceased to exist. we repost and add to the play list, catalogue the beats to make for easy listening and sharing etc. all beats that are made for the beatbattle and posted on stmb are included in the order that they are posted in. just some history.. we implemented the 1st ,2nd ,3rd place ( 5,3,1 points) somwhere in 2017...after having had a poll on it. it had been just vote for favorite 1 beat the 9 years before. as for labling beats and deadlines.. that has always been a bit of a pain.. depending on how you view things some are more relaxed about it than others. my opinion is: I wouldn't want to be watching the clock waiting for the deadline to pass.. then think I've won only to lose the battle coz someones late vote was counted. so no 5 minutes this or that way.. the forum time is accurate. all that is needed is for all of us to pay a teensy weensy bit of attention "Ya'll know what time it is!

    1) SCOUT - CHICAGO STYLE!! Been playing it for the past couple days and it got me to revisit some of my footwork records. 2) defMute - it's crispy how i like it && had a solid bounce that anyone could feel 3) per.du - crazy sound design. i like how you stretched the intro. would like to hear more! I also really like how you used the filter to pull stuff out and let other stuff sliiiiiide in (especially towards the end). textural vibes of a potential junglist... (ever try producing jungle?) Honorable mentions: Butta Slick with that Tommy Wright III style! Oskarr, it was DOPE how you chopped the beat to the bassline. classic move. BAVNZ - both your flips were dope

    Not sure I love this one, it definitely could have used some addtnl. work. But fuck it, wanted to meet the deadline and get something in. Y'all are some bad motherfuckers w/ the beats around here. Honored to be involved.

    ...Hi online brotherhood of sample flippers... I wish you and myself a calm year of personal growth and growing understanding.. to find and/or renew the love for yourself and share it.. may funds reach you if you are in need of them.. ..and use your material possesions purposefully to the benefit of that intangible wealth... let's make some dope music! pz Joa zippy uploads stay active for 30 day from the last download *indefinately.. although servers become full every couple of years..* but we can change the fineprint starting coming week to leave it at the winners' discretion or just change it to wetransfer..

    used some of the organ and a little of the piano from the longer mellow parts. the bass is a combo between a bass hit from the track and a sample off one of my synths. I had recored the sample through my porta-one played at the slowest speed from some "mitape" from the flea market into my mixer. If you listen closely, you can hear me coughing. (i forgot to mute my mic DOH!). everything was rererecorded to tape a full speed into ableton. Thanks for the sample slanteyez. love hearing new music. and thanks to everyone who listens!

    ...congrats Slanty!.. for better or for worse, I'm becoming a more relaxed person with different priorities nowadays.. the posting sample deadline is 2 hours earlier than it got posted .. and usually I woulda made sure something was up by then.. but all of you can read the fineprint etc... so if any of you had a problem with it you coulda posted s'thing yourselves ( for future reference ) this beatbattle is still run by all.. for all I'm glad Slanty got to post his sample though. pz Joa

    Hi everyone, first entry...kinda nervous. Tried the last round as well, and made the mistake to listen to already posted beats -> confidence at zero instantly. Well, you gotta start eventually I guess.

    Hey Per.du, first of all thanks to you and the others for doing the dirty work, setting up threads, do the counting and keep this running !!! I am fairly new here... so i am a bit shy but i have some suggestions wich maybe could be discussed. 1)As you said, late- and non-entries should be marked in the title 2)Someone makes a deadline post in the battle and in the voting thread. Could be done by the host of the battle... But I think this task could be up to everyone. Whoever feels that the deadline is reached could make the post. But there should be no discussion about 5 minutes late or early... 3) Non-entries should be posted after the deadline. 4) Non- and late-entries get reposted on Soundcloud after the voting finished. Or maybe they don't get reposted on SC at all. I think this could ease the counting... to be discussed... cheers, G.

    One thing I don't see talk about is why Net Neutrality was necessary because of the government (federal and state) selling itself to these internet companies in the first place and letting them monopolize everything. In a free market we wouldn't need net neutrality, but because of the government backed monopolies we've had to rely on the government enforcing internet protection. It's a shitty situation all around. Normally I wouldn't be in favor of the regulation, but it does become necessary when the government's made sure there is no free market for the internet. I wonder if/when the monopolies will be broken down like (I believe anyway??) Europe did awhile back. I don't see it ever happening under a Republican, but would not be surprised if Net Neutrality cannot be restored that this would be the next step for at least trying to protect internet freedom.

    ...hey fellas.. just wanted to say 'typeraw' from 'loop.holes' and 'loop.holes' themselves followed me.. and then unfollowed me... I really don't like it when peeps do that just to gain followers.. Just noticed 'typeraw' followed me again.. so they don't even pay attention and just press follow buttons randomly.. I was actually flattered that "loop.holes' followed me.. they are a cool collective.. dope beatmakers... but I was already suspicious.. I did follow 'loop.holes' back to discover they had unfollowed the next day.. I looked at some of your followers lists to see if they have followed you too recently.. and they sure did... maybe you do.. or maybe don't care about this all... either way.. a heads up pz Joa
