    Congrats on the win Setta! So we had a little discussion about updating the voting process here and from that we decided to give it a test run, starting this week. So lets give it a go! In short, everyone gets 3 votes to assign for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. These will be given 5 points, 3 points and 1 point respectively. You can still use colours and fonts but please list the votes in order: 1st Place: 2nd Place: 3rd: Place Theme, Production and Style comments on your votes are encouraged for feedback purposes. Shoutouts can still be made but please keep them below your vote. If somebody only votes for a 1st place (and not a 2nd & 3rd), we will try and chase up the extra votes but if we don’t hear back then unfortunately this vote would be disallowed to keep things fair.

    For greenhorns at the forum, let me explain how this buzzlightyear posting works. 5XVT, aka the human octopus, stands for 16 hands chopping in total north korean synchronization. After the chopping (6 minutes max), the nice little choplets are loaded in the Roland FastFlipper Xtreme Victory Triomphator (3 minutes). This apparatus machine - only existing in the mind of XVT - puts all pieces together in a high resolution "entry" transfer. it's all done 5 times faster then the posting of the week rules + gif. So please, let us give a little respect.

    I got to meet Jonwayne last night, and I asked him myself why he left Stones Throw. He said, " I was just really sick of Swamp Thing and GC on the board, man."

    Stones Throw Beat Battle #513 - Them Changes Theme It's the New Year's beat battle week, which is why this week should have some kind of New Year's theme I think. For that reason I will sort of carry on the theme of last week. As with every new year, there will be changes to your life. These might be pivotal, rather inconsequential, terrible or truly improving yourself. So, this week is (once again) about introspection and self-reflection. Try to get deep and make a beat about a change or several changes that might or will definitely happen next year. Samples Because changes can be quite different, I tried to provide a variety of different samples and moods: http://www40.zippyshare.com/v/d3ArvQm4/file.html http://www40.zippyshare.com/v/m4UWcu3R/file.html http://www120.zippyshare.com/v/LNA7Fp1S/file.html http://www120.zippyshare.com/v/eKiGyp4d/file.html http://www120.zippyshare.com/v/GyJj6SND/file.html Rules - Use at least one of the provided samples ​- No time limit - Outside drums, bass, synths, keys allowed - A Cappellas, vocal samples, skits, cuts, scratches allowed - One beat per person Thanks for all the love and creativity on this forum. The STBBs really improved 2016 for me and I hope that the community will grow and further improve in 2017.

    STBB 500 / Cinquecento That's right folks. Named this round after the famous Fiat 500 which inspired me to drop some sleazy Italian film music from the 70s as sample material. Flip one or many of the samples in the pack.. hope you find something in it. Apart from that no special rules, it's up to you to make it special. It's the 500 baby! Let's celebrate it with some serious joints. The Fine Print: Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 500" in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    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.

    Presented by Lonius and Kongchain. We thank you for your votes and comments! _____ The Theme:_____ Optimism / Pessimism Week It's time to reflect on the year that has passed. Some would say, that a lot a stupid shit went down throughout the world, making it a shitty year. But do you think 2017 will be equally shitty or do you feel more optimistic about the coming year? We have chosen two samples, each with a feel that represents these two moods. Optimistic: http://www92.zippyshare.com/v/kSia6YpQ/file.html Pessimistic: http://www63.zippyshare.com/v/PoWR3HHV/file.html Flip one of the samples, and make a beat that is either optimistic or pessimistic in it's mood and feel. _____The Special Rule:_____ But wait! If you're a really, really special complex kind of person, who encompass both the optimistic and pessimistic view on the coming year, you are most welcome to use both samples. Yes, that's right, both samples! By using both samples, you should try to represent both moods. _____Other rules:_____ Time limit: Below 2½ min. Outside drums, breaks, bass, keys, synths, etc: Allowed. Outside samples: Not allowed Scratches/vocalshots: Allowed Full acapella/rap: Allowed. _____The Fine Print:_____ Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 512“ in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    STBB #506 - Bubble Bath Theme: After a week of political commotion, I decided that this week should be about hot, relaxing and soothing bubble baths. Try to make a beat you would listen to, to calm down, to feel happy, to light up a J or to eat some fancy food in a bubble bath. The beats can be slow, smooth, funny, quirky, whatever, just make that shit sound like as if you were taking a bath. Samples: - Sample 1 - Sample 2 - Sample 3 - Sample 4 Rules: 1) Use at least one of the provided samples. 2) Outside everything allowed. 3) One beat per person.

    Sample 1 Sample 2 Hello! Thank you everyone. 1) Use at least one of the above samples. They're both Mulatu Astatke and COME ON. so good. 2) A prominent element of your track has to be in fast forward. I don’t want to say which element, how much faster, or whether you time stretch/pitch shift, because I don’t know what’s going to work for you as you’re building it. Just speed something up, don’t hide it in the background, make it sound effortless. 3) All everything OK 4) Make this CATCHY. 5) Less important, but I'd also like it if your track art really represented your beet visually. ♥ The Fine Print: Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 505" in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    dopeness everywhere you look. makes me wonder once more why there's not so much more dope hiphop and beats out there on mainstream media. let's start with BILLINSKI and that classic flava, bringing good times even if you're in a bad mood. very uplifting! acapella fits perfectly. next there's SUMPOSSUM, throwing in something different and bringing that original style. also so easy to get you going and turn your thoughts into something good. love it! also so very lovely is KRIS VAN HUYSTEE 's flip, which is another perfect example of the great variety that you can get in here. it has an eerie vibe to it (reminds me of the "homeland" title song) but at the same time feels lovely calm. and the arrangement is just wonderful. would definitely buy it on physical media! the winner for me, as it is for many others, is the excellent collab between JULIAN CONVEX & JOA GYMSHOE. i have rarely heard a flip in here that deserves greater attention. and in greater attention i mean big time label album youtube radio style. in my opinion, this holds the exact balance between dope hiphop and radio-friendly pop music that i would turn up in my car without feeling guilty. B R A V O !

    #494 - Rock week 1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? S'up guys! I'm 31 years old, a full-time office worker, husband, soon a father and if there's any time left - a beat maker from Munich. Started producing in the early 2000s and stopped in about 2008-2009 for the reasons below. Joined the STBB about two months ago and it's something like a joyful comeback for me. 2. - 3. How did you make use of the sample and how did you incorporate the rules? The rules were to choose a sample pack of three samples and an additional acapella. So I tried to find some intense and rocking chops in the first sample and used the other ones for "background voice" loops. Then I pitched and gridded the aca towards my beat, the tricky thing was to keep everything in key. But when you listen to the beat you realize it's no rocket science.. mostly raw and simply structured chops. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? Hard and simple drums. Kick, Snare, Cymbal.. trying to accentuate the rocky chops. Since the sample was already so full I felt that there was no extra room for complex drum patterns. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? My own I'm a software engineer by profession and worked in the audio / music industry for about seven years. But this sort of destroyed my hobby.. thinking about dsp-algorithms all day I didn't feel like being anywhere near music software after work. This made me change the branch into making games and interactive books. But what's left from the time in making audio software is of course the know-how. So I made my own little sampling tool called DonutProducer. It's designed for producers like me who sometimes need to get a beat or an idea done in the time of a coffee break. The workflow is: add a sample -> select the chops (the actual chopping is done by the tool, you just browse them as in an acoustical catalogue) -> add some drums -> export. It doesn't have the overload of a UI, every basic controls you make with your keyboard.. you can think of it as a step sequencer. So you don't need to look at your screen all the time.. look out of a train window while making a quicky Here's a small demo video I made.. more to come: (For a newer version please look at my post below of #499) I will release this any time soon, please write me an email if you are interested and I'll keep you up to date: info@donutproducer.com For mixing and recording the bassline (Fender Jazz Bass, Marcus Miller Signature Edition with a small DI integrated) I use Ableton Live. 6. Anything else you wanna add? I don't want to give you guys any technical advice.. you sure know how to make a dope beat. For the younger and struggling cats out there I only have the advice not to think about equipment so much. Sure the new NI Maschine or Ableton Push systems are insane because of their possibilities. But the more possibilities you have, the more confusing something can be. Creativity always needs a resistance, in the end it's all about getting shit done. Especially in the STBB See you in the next rounds, with pleasure in a collabo!

    no joke, this was a victory for white nationalism, misogyny, narrow-mindedness, police brutality, regression. our global standing has nosedived, and there is sure to be economic fallout. anyone being flippant about it can frankly get fucked as far as i'm concerned.

    STBB#501 dystopia Try to make a beat with a dystopic vibe. Imagin u make a soundtrack for a scifi movie with shady dudes in gangs and brutal anarchy like in „Mad Max“ ..or the exact opposite with an everywhere existent surveillance state like Orwell's „1984“. To make it more interesting try to focus the contrast between the feel good vibes from the songs in the first samplepack and the fucked up situation in a dystopic world. RULES U have to use at least one of the provided samples from the „obligatory sample pack“. The „dystopic shots pack“ contains a few atmospheric samples. U can use it if u want - but it’s not a must. — <4min — outside drums, breaks, bass, keys, synths, samples, etc.. allowed — scratches/vocalshots > fine! — acapella/rap > Yes, but… 1. only if you recording yourself or do a collabo with someone… …and 2. it fits to the theme >obligatory sample pack< http://www41.zippyshare.com/v/k6B9G3Gd/file.html >dystopic shots pack< http://www79.zippyshare.com/v/7heIzqoI/file.html The Fine Print: Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 501“ in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    Holy cat! Thanks so much everyone for the huge honour of letting me host the 500. Didn't really think I'd win with this rather dystopic track. As long as we keep these battles running Hip Hop as it's pictured in the get down will stay alive. It's not a consume based culture although it seems a bit nowadays. Went to one of biggest Hip Hop festivals (Splash) in Europe last year, the first time after 9 years. No more freestyling on the campsite. No exchange of beat tapes. Almost no dance battles going on. But way more drugs around, much bigger crowds in front of the cloud rap clowns. For me it was and always will be a culture of activists. We battle, we do something, we evolve.. that's more Hip Hop than any Netflix show will ever be. Keep it on fellas! (about to cook up some samples for the 500)

    STBB#499 "The Get Down" I just recently watched the first 6 episodes of this show and can't recommend it highly enough. Anyone that needs reminding of the fun and magic of Hip-Hop should watch immediately. The special rule is that I'd like everybody to find a drum break that they like and showcase it in your beat un-chopped for at least 2 to 4 bars and share the name of it here on the forum. You do not have to solo the drums just play them un-broken. Aside from your break there will be no outside samples please. Rock your instruments Rock your drums Rock your vocals/cuts/scratches 3 Minute time limit Have Fun!

    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.

    Dear fam, amigos, peers. I will stop participating for a period of time. From time to time I will check out your great beats. My love for stbb is tremendous. Excuses to per.du and yellow for the failed collaborations with me. Hope to be back soon, nothing to worry about! Just too busy right now. B-Dog

    Took a second, guys. Forgot my password. I won't try to defend or repeal any opinions of me. What's the fun in that? I'd much rather you have interpretations of your own. In this post I'll simply state facts. I've had quite a few magazines and websites ask me about the events that caused my moves in the recent past and I never once said yes to an interview or offered up my relationship with any of my colleagues for publicity. My story, however, is mine to tell and I'll do so when I feel comfortable. The upcoming LP is written about these events, by large, so my decision to include this private information serves the concept. Considering this is all years behind me, I didn't see revealing this information to others as anything but providing historical context. Even so, my life is my work and vice versa, and I find it odd that anyone could be capable of cherrypicking what, of an artist's personal life, they personally deem acceptable to use as a jumping-off point. It seems irrational to ask someone who makes art to remove themselves from the presentation of it, in any regard. Fine, if you like ambiguity in your artists, though that might be a personal taste. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised, most of us here worship people like DOOM and Madlib. I hope that clears up some confusion, and I hope some of you appreciate my response. If not, that's alright as well. Either way, I don't think it's a good idea for me to respond further. I just figured I owed explanation to a message board that I still feel indebted to. P.S. The record industry is dead. No one will be making money off "exploiting" personal turmoil.

    NON-ENTRY Hey All, A little about myself. I am a divorced father with 2 wonderful children that I share custody of. I have a regular non-musical job and no social life. This is what I do all the time because it gives me joy. I am alone but not lonely because I have this outlet to express myself. I would probably go crazy if I didn't have this. I am very thankful to Hideyuki for turning me on to the STBB. I do not come from a hip hop background though I have always enjoyed listening to it among other types of music. I guess what I want to say is that I want to get better at this and I hope you don't mind me posting here and posting non-entries. I would really like to find someone to love and relate to Freddy's lyrics very much but I do have something I love and that's enough for now. I am guessing this thankfulness for music is how most of us here in the STBB feel. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving holiday. Peace, Hugh

    wanted to give a rundown and overall first impressions skipping through the tracks. hope no one takes this as nitpicking, negativity or complaining. just want to be constructive and help everyone. really liked those rules the other week about structuring bars, intros, hooks, etc. it def helped everyone reign it in a bit.. ogi- snare is really compressed and the whole choppiness is not conducive to establishing a groove. really too quantized st. rock- i like that arpeggiated bass breakdown thing but the whole vibe is a little too r&b for a battle format buddah killah- yo the intro is 40 seconds long cut that waaaaay down for a battle. pretty hard though. gimme a little more swing spvcecvse- remixes are tough cause the flip has to be as dope or better than the og. not easy to out-do salaam remi. dark vibe soul-jutsu- first beat very chilled out. second harder but drums keep fading in & out. need a more focused melody wigmaster- the loop gets a little repetitive. wanted the snare to hit harder jackal- nice organic percussion. yo the outro part is dope why is that not the whole beat? kautzallainan- kind of a quincy jones soundtrack vibe but honestly too disjointed and unfocused for battling porya- intro is really long. i like the snare syncopation would've liked something more melodic with the sample infrarot- the drums sound a little too break-beat style like 1994. 2nd beat too quantized. mix is a little quiet homeofdopebeats- don't know why but this reminds me of c&c music factory. props for working in the s&garfunkel but sounds like '91 setta- really dark maybe needs stronger melodic elements. drums are cool i'd kick the bpm up for battle dr strange- dope intro straight off but beat doesn't kick in until 30 sec. you def brought the trap joa- that sample keeps reminding me of the moonrise kingdom score (alexander desplait). loved that movie. props for making a song ambassador- cool chill vibe but where's the drums this is a battle not a roc marciano album cut! ntourage- drums are ok cuts ok i need more melody. make the outro beat the whole beat! hex- breakbeat! again, very dark, the melody is not grabbing me. i like the slow-down outro style the organization- ok this is brighter. nice swing on the hats. dope eq, compression and reverb on the snare. not bad mink-c- haha a lot of people used the 'moonrise' sample. this is really quantized just seems like the horns don't go with that sample sim- nice mix this bangs hard. that lead line is a little glitchy & edm-ish. dope drums though--that synthetic substitution pattern vibe tretschinken- really dark. yo you just have a 30 sec break in the middle of the beat! what the crowd supposed to be doing then! cascassette- that sample again! yo this is the best flip of that. knocks hard & like the way you chopped it moberg- seems to be a recurring pattern of cats making really dark music. bit of a el-p vibe yellow5- the drums is like jungle or something--whatever the prodigy is. kinda quantized and choppy loosen it up a bit goodfellow- 496? dope drums & bassline. clap with the filter wah sample gives that sft vibe. pretty dope if a lil ambient melodically lif- this is all over the place but i love the 303 compression sound. kinda sounds like a doom or j-zone interlude verism- dark. i like the vibe of the drums on this maybe mix them louder wavybagels- sick synth line. this actually sounds really fresh not stale. not gonna complain about this one saadyah- hey i just had cousins in from israel last week it was great to see them. you banged hard on this one think everyone feeling it hobgob- winner for me. usually don't like acapellas this was well executed. the drops worked & sean sounds perfect on it. rip sol sauvage- yo you know this was a battle right? what happened? haha actually i fux with this trip akina- yo this is actually kind of an interesting progression. not bad. maybe up the bpm a bit to boost the energy lonious- straight off like the compression on the snare. something about the el da sensei aca not lined up correctly? not sure Y-N- wooo noisey! lo-fi snare nice. but again need more melody 2n!te- ok this is nice melodically--like a female might actually enjoy it. i think its too quantized though butta- dark technology. the dark web. really dark. knocks tho hideyukiakadjkuromiyaakahb- thats a name. i like the god pt 3 acapella choice. dope snare. cool synths. this isn't bad detritus tabu- woa. tribe vibes. like tribal gecko yin-yang ish. out there apl- wow this is super underwater muffled. what is this? mazmatazz- pretty tough. i woulda maybe not gone with 11 beats and just chose the best ones for more groove jxhlani- ok the outro is almost a minute long though. is that part of the beat? think i flipped the same part. great minds.. 5xvt- nnf (never not first!). cool blend of synths and horns. nice snare. kinda fresh well that took a while. used to do this every week before st promoted the battle and there were only like 15 entries.

    Nice!! Didn't see this one posted, very cool they focused on the Brazil stuff too. Ever since MMS 2 that got me super hooked on the Brazil stuff, especially on Marcos Valle who he mentions there (seriously, every single one of his records Light in the Attic repressed are fantastic and worth the purchase). Toquinho y Vinicius and Elis Regina also stuff I got into quite a bit as a result of Madlib. Would be amazing hanging out with Joel Stones and checking out his records too, he seems like a very cool dude too and that Brazil compilation he put out awhile back is a good one. So it looks like there will be a new fireside chat today? Looking forward to that vid Here's a random one from Marcos Valle album I've been playing a bit recently, the intro is bananas
