    1. Enzoeyeris 2. The Wolf 3. Banizzz Loads of bangers this round as usual. As much as sub-genre labeling sucks, I gotta rant for a moment. There seems to be a lot of confusion nowadays on what low fidelity is or means. More and more I see beats labeled as "lofi", that are anything but lofi. I guess it stems from beatmakers that enjoy lofi music, but really don't know how to make it. If it's not dirty, dusty, gritty... It ain't lofi. If it doesn't sound like a scratchy, ancient 78 you pulled from some mom & pop thrift store for pennies on the dollar, chalked full of allergic reactions... Then it probably isn't lofi. If you didn't bit crush or damage the audio in some fashion... Then it probably isn't lofi. Just because it's minimal, doesn't mean it's lofi. Just because you flipped some old chill jazz samples, doesn't mean it's lofi. Just because it was made on a SP-404, doesn't mean it's lofi. Don't make me come to your house, raid your fridge, steal your beat machines, and give you a fucked up haircut. And don't take this rant too serious. Enjoy yourselves.

    Congrats Fat! A few questions -If i choose to use sample A but it is before 2:00 pm on Sunday can I use sample C also or do i have to use sample B because of alphabetical order? Also- can I use outside samples if i am working in an outdoor environment? If that is allowed what if i come back inside to finish the track would that negate my being able to use the outside sample? Also will i be able to use my track for a chili cook-off I am planning even if the cook-off is planned to occur during the vernal equinox and all the participants are right handed. Excited to get started once I am clear on the rules. if you could fax me a hand printed(no cursive) reply to these questions that would be great.

    YO Congratulations @Kowalzki won well deserved IMO! To me the win is definitely legit, there's a subtle difference between neglecting a deadline and not being able to deliver in the right format because of technical issues. It's more of a delay issue in transport than in getting the shipment on the road. Enforcing rules is one thing, but seeing each situation for what is it and acting accordingly - gotta be flexible. IMO at least. Thanks for the votes and looking forward to some fresh samples. Peace, O

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? Why sure. Detritus is not my real name, it is Hugh. I live in the mountains outside of Asheville NC. I teach Robotics in a public middle school. I really enjoy being around students this age but not in a Roy Moore way. Way back in time I was a bass player in band but I am really a keyboard/computer fiend now. I have 2 children to keep me straight and an ex-wife to keep me poor. I love STBB and hb turned me on to it when he heard a track in which I had sampled Dilla and invited me. Now I never miss a week-nuff said. Oh yeah Pet peeve-people who don't vote. I know it takes time to listen but if at all possible please vote. 2. How did you make use of the sample? Well, I usually listen and pick out sections that sound tasty and slice to keyboard and adjust as needed. I also usually use some kind of crossfading of created loops as it open up combos I would not of thought of before but sometimes makes me sound a bit busy. I had posted some of my loops to the mb and Joa took it and ran with it. I also sent him some guitar loops which he used more artfully than I ever would have. 3. How did you incorporate the rules? Well I got lucky and Joa took the bait for a collaboration. I wanted a Chicago theme but Joa took it and made it about The Elderly Brothers. I did get the guitar licks from Howlin' Wolf trying to get a little of the Chicago blues in there. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? All Joa, thank Gawd. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? Ableton -accept no substitutes. Actually it is never the DAW, it is the person using the DAW. Oh forgot to add I use an APC40/20 combo and usually perform my tracks as a live mix. It is my habit for everything I do. 6. Anything else you wanna add? I am humbled every week by the skill of everyone and all the different takes on the samples and theme. I enjoy Fridays when I get to listen to everyone's track and start putting names on my notepad. I make my top 3 choices before I see how others voted cause I do not want outside forces to sway my votes. Just wanted to say again-VOTE! Thanks STBB family. Peace, Hugh

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? Hi..JoaGymshoe.. from Rotterdam, The Netherlands.. born in '78. uhm.. writing lyrics since the early nineties..beatmaking since around 2002. 2. How did you make use of the sample? I pitched some part that had pianokeys down and chopped them up.. that also had a bassline layered with/under... I've always been a sucker for abstract piano melodies. sampled a horn and used that played normally and reversed and made shorter stabs too creating a rythmic push and pull effect. 3. How did you incorporate the rules? the rule was to collaborate with someone. I made the piano /bass and horns loop on saturday with just a snare hit layered with a clap. added an outside high note piano pling with a tingly trail. found Detritus' collab request on stmb sunday morning and listened to his work.. I thought it had great potential it was 90 bpm so I timestretched it to 82 bpm.. used the ( stand up ) bassline and the verby horns. which I added more reverbto later to get them more into the background. over the following days he sent me the guitar picky sound used in the intro for instance..and another guitar lick which I cut up. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? like mentioned I started off with the layered snare.. somewhere along the line I added the hat I had sampled off an earlier stbb sample . and played that back and forth to create a sort of shaker effect. that already added enough swing to the drums which are otherwise on 'beat' ( quantize ) athough usually I move the drums around a lil' the kicks I made on tuesday I think.. also layered two or three to cover several frequencies eq drums in certain frequencies to enhance their impact.. also sidechain snare to the whole of melodies bass.. the kicks a little less ... did the structure/arrangement of everything on tuesday thought it would be cool to have some scratching on it... I scowered youtube for a while and found the cuts I ended up using in a DMC mixing contest.. timestretched them and cut them up. ... the lyrics I wrote during the whole process barring the first half of the first verse which came from my rhymediary. recorded it all on the final arrangement on wednesday and made some final adjustments.. finetuning, details like shortening some drumhits etc. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? I use Cool Edit for chopping.. Reason 4 for creating and Cubase 5 for further edits, vocal recording and mixing. I vary my formula from adding no compression, reverb, delay, panning and equing etc. in Reason to doing loads in Reason.. export every track seperately coz Rewire doesn't work. Recall adding some compression on the whole in reason and already equing some nasty frequencies out in Reason this time. so further equing, compressing, limiting, panning, stereo enhancing etc. was done in Cubase. also duplicated and panned some sounds max left and right and adding minimal delay to one side or the other to create more space/ depth Recorded one rap track and did the left and right backing/adlib track seperatly for nice stereo effect.. I think at about 1/3 of maximum width this time.. often go wider but that all depends on where the rest of the instruments are in the mix. so rather close to the center this time added some reverb and delay.. used multiband on the whole of the vocals. and equed a lot lot lot! equed the whole finished track.. limited and compressed.. but those are actually things that go on throughout the whole process.. learning what to listen for is a process of years for me.. also in the case of getting sounds in key.. but that's another story 6. Anything else you wanna add? I hope some of the techniques I explained come in handy for you.. might add more later if some pop up I forgot. been doing these battles for over four years and haven't missed many.. made true friends and travelled the globe visiting some.. it truly has a major impact on my life and I've learned a lot both in music but also as a human being. ego/validation is one thing that seems to go hand in hand with competition. that's one of the things I'm still working on. anywho.. love this intangible place called stmb.. here I find a release for craft, creativeness and emotions.. thanks D.T, for the nice collaboration pz Joa

    STBB 545 >>Mixed Genres Week<< Samples: Zip or seperate: Earth Blossom Pasado Obhimani 15 Minutos Angel Eyes St. James Infermary Victor 13066a Wakarebanashi nanka Mixed genres week: Use at least three of the samples to make a beat with two different styles/genres. Could be Boombap, Trap, House, Ambient, Reggaeton, Jazz, techno, Electronica... whatever, just try and be creative and make both parts HOT FIRE!! You can make it with some type of breakdown in the middle to seperate the two or you can mix the genres throughout the beat or make a surprise transition, but no matter how you do it Just try to make it work and try to make it sound natural, even though it is maybe outside of your comfort zone. If you find it hard to use three samples, try some different breakdowns or intro/outro stuff, try to be creative (it shouldn't be to hard with so many samples to pick from, there's over 30 minutes worth of samplematerial...) Outside melodic samples not allowed, use the ones i provided. Outside anything else is ok.

    Cut we cut a little back on the amount of samples and just keep it to 1 in the future or are everyone cool with how it is? It would be more of a beat battle then imo. Just a thought. EDIT: I mean 1 music track - if people want to include a special drumkit to be used or anything I'm totally cool with that.

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? some dude. born and raised in the bay area. used to be in a bunch of hardcore bands in high school and made ambient music and some IDM on the side. late sophomore year of high school ('~06?), I was listening to DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid - Riddim Warfare (the album that "started it all") and trying to remake one of the dnb songs in Garageband (the first DAW for most). A senior working as a TA, saw what I was doing, (which wasn't the assignment) and introduced me to Madlib - Shades of Blue... life changed. Ever since then, I've been making beats and trying to find as much electronic, jazz, dub, metal, w/e I could find. Serendipity, I made friends with another young producer, Dom$olo (soundcloud.com/domsolo) who just happened to be the younger brother of the guy who introduced me to instrumental hiphop and who would later go on to help produce some tracks on Yeezus, Big Sean, and Sia. Long story short, toured with my band, dropped that, got into pills, dropped that, got engaged, dropped that... but through all of it, I never stopped making music... Here I am! 2. How did you make use of the sample? There was an organ/piano break earlier in the track. I took parts of this, ran each part into it's own Ableton Sampler, and programmed the midi from here. If you want proof or w/e I can send you the set or do a youtube video with a run through 3. How did you incorporate the rules? The rules were straight forward; use the sample anything goes. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? I picked some drums I've been sitting on from a cassette that I left out in the sun (solar crunch). I recorded these single hits into ableton, played the drums on my Ableton Push 2, loaded them onto a newer cassette, BAM drums done 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? I use Ableton live, push 2, Tascam Porta Studio 1, some old radioshack type 1 cassettes, and my sample library 6. Anything else you wanna add? be shameless in your production and promotion (lol) s/o to dom$olo --> s/o to myself -->

    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

    A statue/monument is a powerful thing, goes beyond just a historical reminder, especially when you have people walking around today who still support the achievements that earned them that statue. It's not about erasing history, it's about not celebrating it and taking power away from those that do.

    STBB 534 Samples http://www51.zippyshare.com/v/7rROyz0v/file.html http://www51.zippyshare.com/v/BgwBrJ2l/file.html http://www51.zippyshare.com/v/3bflTEgn/file.html http://www51.zippyshare.com/v/xKZcZWKq/file.html I've always been a big fan of music composers, and David Axelrod passed away a few months ago. He was a big influence for many of the producers I look up to, so I included one of his pieces along with a couple Adrian Younge & Ali joints. Plus 1 more random cut. I like the process of only using samples, drums, bass, and live instrumentation. Rules - time limit: keep it under 2:30 - no outside samples (use any number of the provided samples) - outside drums and bass (especially live bass guitar) allowed - any live instruments allowed - scratches, cuts, one shots allowed - no synth plugins or digital instruments (VSTs not allowed) - full acapellas (not allowed) no special rules, just make some heat! The Fine Print: Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 534" in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    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!

    Yow beat bros. The mods have had a talk about the goings on on the forum and have come to the conclusion that the new voting system is too laborious and impractical for us to manage. it was cool, but we're reverting to the way that has been going for the last 10 years. pick a winner only, of course you can still list your top threes or top tens etc. as you please. Also we wanna encourage you all to feel free to -add up the votes -start the vote thread ( copying the fixed text obviously ) and -point out stuff you see needs pointing out This forum has always been run by the participants. the STBBCollection and the forum are two different entities. we are mods of STBBC ..and longstanding members of STBB/STMB. on here we we can can offer our insight and experience.. but we want the forum to run somewhat more autonimously. that's it, if you have questions, ask'em pz Joa moderators are in the profile description of stbbcollection
