    First of all, i'm touched by all messages and especially all entries for my friend Komplikated aka Damce.i would like to thank each and every-one for their entries to honor him.Last week was an emotional rollercoaster for me personally and other close friends and family.I don't know if anyone has read my request regarding this weeks beats, We ( me and 2 other friends ) came up with the idea to make a cd with this weeks entries, is it okay that i use your beat for this memorial cd for Komplikated? It would be great. my vote for this special week: Barry Studebaker - this is the Komplikated style Bugseed - pfjieuwww, what a nice track Flo bama - one of my faves my vote goes to: Butta Slick - u got me bigtime with this one !

    Wanna tell us something about yourself? Hey people, I'm Sol Sauvage from the woods of the Swedish highlands. A father of two daughters, gardener, music fan and beatmaker. I started messing with hip-hop culture in the late 90's. Graffiti, rhyming and stuff with a crew from my home town. Eventually my focus of interest in music broadened and I started to explore other stuff like psychedelic rock, jazz, funk and all that goodness... For quite a while I was totally lost and unproductive musically and didn't know what to do, trying to play the flute, organ and messing with synthesizers. At some point however I found my way back to sampling and beatmaking. For me, these beat battles have been a great way of keeping the creativity going and evolving my style. As of now I'm planning to do some live beat sets this summer, which I never did before, so that'll be fun. How did you make use of the sample? Donut Producer provided lots of nice samples to play around with. 1st part is a heavily chopped bass/guitar funk sample. 2nd part is a loop with some fx which I played a synth over. 3rd part is just some raw loops and chops. How did you incorporate the rules? The rules were max 30 seconds per beat part... that was a challenge because I think often a beat needs to ”marinate” a bit. I wanted each bit to be distinctly different from each other but still transition nicely. I made more beats but these three made it. Obviously the acapella is part of a DOOM verse, huge fan of him and his crazy lyrics... How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? What I usually do is to program a snare then play the kicks/hats/perc on the pads. What DAW and or equipment did you use? I use Studio One on an old Mac Pro along with a 4x4 pad controller and a midi keyboard. Anything else you wanna add? Peace to you all, happy midsummer!

    I think the only person who could successfully pull that off would be Nardwuar the Human Serviette. With the level of research he puts into each interview he could probably tell DOOM who Mr. Fantastick is.

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? born in miami and raised in new york, and now I'm back living in miami. in between those stops, i've lived in a couple cities with very dope music scenes and i think that's helped shape my sound. i lived in london, england for a few - played some pro ball out there. i lived in minneapolis for a few - got family out there, and then lived in philly for a few. i started making beats in college around 2006, and basketball was always my first love but once i stopped playing, i filled that void with music. 2. How did you make use of the sample? i chopped up the first sample and pitched it down. i used a lot of elements from that track for the main sample chop, and i chopped up a couple stabs from the third sample and matched the key. they fit well together and i didn't really need to add much more sample wise. i tried to leave some space to let the track breathe. 3. how did you incorporate the rules? no crazy rules for this one..had to use at least two samples and had to use an acapella. i fux with acapellas heavy, i like to build beats around 16s or whatever the verses are, and it's helped me with my arrangement. probably half the beats i make ill try to find an acapella that fits so i can use it for that reason. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? i tried to keep the same energy and feel as the original heather b track, so i reached for some boom-bap-type drums, kick snare hi hats and some crashes. i banged the pads on the mp and fattened em up in the mix. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? i use logic for everything, and i use the mpd24 for all my drums and sample chops. i played the bassline on my keyboard and i also played a similar bassline with my 4 string bass, but i liked the feel of the synth bass more so i ran with that. i added a few scratches with my turntable. 6. Anything else you wanna add? shout out to kowalzki for the ill sample! its really dope to hear how different cats reimagine the same track. the thing stbb has helped me with the most is finishing. i used to take weeks and months trying to perfect a beat, but having 3, 4, 5 days to track it out, mix it and throw a weak attempt at mastering it has done amazing things for my workflow. peace and much respect!

    ...thanks for letting us know Moxatron.. I only came across your post coz I was haveing a sleepless night on my vacation and happened to check.. there is supposed to be someone filling in for me as I repost wednesdays but I dunno what happened ... appologies for it though on a similar topic... I decided to let go of the "controle" a lil' a couple a weeks ago. and I'm surprised to see that things aren't really being picked up. although I guess most were used to things being done, the forum can actually be run by the community. I hope these few events make it clear you have these powers. like there wasn't a sample posted till way after the sample posting deadline last saturday.. there's the faq guys... noon LA time.. then it's the runner up..or anybody really... the show must go on also...anyone may start the Vote thread from wednesday night 12 LA Time so go ahead and run this mofo fellas I'm gonna repost the tracks and the Vote will start again in case something goes wrong with reposting again.. best to write one or all the mods.. they are listed on the STBB Collection page pz Joa p.s. really enjoyed the banter and honesty about the rules etc. in th posting thread.. 1 <3

    yeah aight lol. i feel that. either way, i personally hope that closing its offices was them realizing their mistakes and deciding to make changes to run their business better and it was not born out desperation. Chance the Rapper i guess spoke with the CEO and they announced together that Soundcloud will live beyond 50 days and well into the future. Apparently the "dead in fifty days" thing wasn't true according to them. there seems to be theories floating around that this was all a big publicity stunt. none of this really matters tho i mean if soundcloud can thrive it'll continue to be one of the big platforms for underground artists to make a name for themself. if not, it'll die, and something new will fill the void. such is business.

    well the thing we keep arguing in circles over is what Soundcloud should be used for. you seem to be dead-centered on the idea that it's like FUBU for independent music creators specifically, including fans of indie artists, indie artists themselves, indie labels, and indie artist collectives. i'm saying it could easily expand its influence and be more than that if it was managed properly, which we both agree it is not. let's just agree to disagree and be glad we don't own a business like Soundcloud together lol. nothing like a good, long-winded argument on a message board to really get the blood flow going

    My heart goes out to the family and friends of Komplikated, I have been a fan of his music for a long while. He will be missed here. As a guy who has been here for years, I have seen many people come and go from the beat battle but rarely do you recall their music and comments as soon as their name is mentioned, Komplikated as soon as I saw it I knew who he was and became sad, I have never spoken to him just listened and became a fan of his music that is the thing about art it will live on for the artist years after he or she has passed giving that person soul new life every time someone hears or views their art. Rest in Paradise family I hope all of your kicks are fat and chops loop right peace. R/ Yusef Efe aka Butta Slick
