  5. ..hi.. my dry element is my voice... I came in at 6 in the morning this monday... after celebrating Feijenoord's ( the biggest football team of the part of Rotterdam where I live) win of the National Championship for football... and recorded the lyrics I'd written sunday drinkin' etc. you can imagine I was pretty thirsty.. I mixed the raps as dry, crunchy, flakey as I could.. and experimented with some extra wet, underwater, bubbly effects on some vocals for contrast.. www.facebook.com/feyenoordkampioe…e_video_guests=0 some of the festivities ^^

  8. ...okay.. this was an educational week.. for me.. I hope for you guys too.. for example how to not act like an idiot!... I let emotions get the best of me and I shouldn't have spilled personal stuff on here... my appologies... on the topic of the spirit of the contest.. I mighta got swayed... a little. this is a community of hard workers.. parents.. students.. musicians.. stoners.. ~ cats and birds of all furrs and plumage ~ and I'm proud to be a member now this was one dope ass week..dug all tracks.. there was something great to be found in all of them 1. 2. 3. need to listen again
  9. ...I started the Vote Thread coz I feel the way to Vote was left a little unclear last week kept the 1 2 3 Voting in there.. coz I heard a team is forming... per.du ..Barry Studebaker and Supafly Arturo.. think they need a few more members.. who's up for it?
  10. ...used A and C.. everything is from the samples.. bass and drums too the raps are about four years old ( ... )
  11. that's putting things in perspective.. possibly downplaying it somewhat... I was sorta done with saying my piece but I feel with this part above you possibly had me in mind.. we did talk about it at length.. heatedly from my side as I felt I was aiding and abetting too.. we'll likely have plenty more discussions in the future.. will keep'em off here... mostly it's worked like this for ten years.. this thread is good to raise awareness.. needs to happen once every blue moon.. onwards ans upwards
  12. by now it's clear you insist on seeing things differently than most here.. to us the challenge is to create something from scratch with the given samples and ruleset.. not gonna be sainctimonious.. like I wrote before.. I think a lot of us mighta pulled a drumbeat off the shelf or something like that... but to use this method as a standard modus operandi is just not what's meant this next bit is 'for argument's sake' 'flipping the sample' you are a musician no doubt.. and as nice as your tracks can be... taking a milli snippet of a sample...getting it in key.. and have it as a stab in the background.. while you play piana and bass... I don't know man.. it's just not flipping the sample to me... I'm not attacking you on this... it's certainly a way to handle business... but to me flipping the sample is either to have it recognizable.. or make all ( most of ) your sounds from it.. I'm happy to hear a lot of you agree on this matter.. I don't really see a way to change the rules without hindering the creative proces.. apart from: no outside instruments rule so everybody's gotta do what they gotta do I suppose.. pz Joa
  13. ...yeah, weird thing is... there's nothing in the rules really about this.. how would you word it?.. No previously made stuff allowed...?.. and how to make it watertight?.. it will always come down to the integrity and honesty of the beatmaker ..good point
  14. ..if you had told me that what I was hearing was an stbb track in the making before that week even started..Kris.. I would've never put my time and energy into it... and thanks Saad.. I guess I can take some credit for how that dope af track came out.. it was dope af before the sample got implemented haha...
  15. I call BS bro...here's the actual conversation copied.. you suggested I raise the issue not me.. nothing changed or taken out Me: hm? I already thought why's that track called 531? that's not really a legit entry imo having a drumbeat on the shelf is one thing but this? I already thought why's that track called 531? that's not really a legit entry imo You: i used the sample in the outdo man outro it's clearly there audible and a part of the track if you want to say it's not a valid entry go for it i'll contest it i write my harmonies in advance every time adding samples is just cutting and pitching into key but I am 18 second over says instruments ok no outside samples i played everything myself used the samples on the outro in your theory I could spend my vacation makin say 10 beats for the next 10 weeks after... barring special rules I'd just have to insert the sample.. or spend weeks on a beat till the right sample comes along this is the last I'm gonna say about it coz after discussing it at length I know I can't make you see it... pzO!
  16. ..So here's something that happened to me this week which I wanna share with you.. it pains me I must admit... but the person in question basically dared me to say it here.. and is so convinced of being right that I feel I do need to say it in the hope of him realising what he's doing isn't in the spirit of this contest This person sent me a track earlier this week for feedback... and I've been giving it that... the track consisted of piano melodies, a drumbeat and a bassline... I heard the track getting better and better during the week as new drafts were sent... intro and outro 'skits' were added... mix improved.. melodies added etc... then today I suddenly heard the track on the forum!.. with the sample added to the outro I confronted him on it.. the person says it's his usual way of working... clearly we disagree on the matter... to me the flipping the sample means using it as a starting point.. from the moment it's been released... not incorporating it in an existing track... personally I feel duped... and I'm disappointed to the degree I won't even say your name bro.. another thing.. go over the time limit.. lable your track non-entry there's more stuff going on unrelated to this which might be brought under the attention later... yes.. keep it fun and don't take this stuff so seriously.. hmmm.. seems I can't pz Joa
  17. ..yow congrats Elan!.. think I've seen a documentary on her on the Beebs once.. dope!
  18. you guys don't seem to realise the work that goes into letting things run smoothly coz it's always been done and arranged... hours of talk has gone into stuff that you take for granted.. contacting winners to get certain info in the topic starts etc. etc. to respond to your posts... who will add the participants to the site?.. not mods.. and can't burden winners.. who will set up the site.. does it calculate.. 5 points for 1st place..3 for 2nd etc.. who will contact the winner to put that info in the Sample Start Topic... who contacts the winner when he leaves it out for some reason.. does it go in the Vote Start too?.. who's gonna do the Vote Start from now on? what happens to the Vote Thread?... DEAD? who's gonna notify ST Bot of the change of the voting location.. does ST have an opinion? there's tradition here.. 10 years... only way this 123 vote could realistically happen is peeps just count with pen and pad.. or 5XVT's spreadheet gets utilised responsibly.... you fill in the place and it calculates the points automatically btw... Okay.. so here's what we can do.. there were already some volunteers.. Let's decide on 1 new counting moderator we can go to for questions etc.. he has the main responsibility and a schedule or so for the other counting mod volunteers.. 5XVT made his spreadsheet available for them to use.. so yeah.. who's up for it.. per.du and supafly arturo so far right?
  19. ..okay.. to continue where the votethread left off... for me it wasn't necessarilly counting the votes and filling them in etc.. but having the responsibillity to make sure it got done.. even if I didn't /don't have reposting duty etc I'm still checking to see if stuff got done... I chose to start STBBC and take responsibillity for it.. this voting system is too much for me also oversee... it's taking too big a toll on my personal life.. I guess it's time for me to take a little step back and let others be responsible... a poll to see how peeps think on the voting system now would be interesting.. but I wanna add : the consequence of voting Yes.. should be you also wanna take part in the actual counting.. In any case..I'm leaving the organisational side to someone else.. think it's good it got brought to a head like this I'm happy to see you guys are speaking up and out..
  20. I think we can keep that benefit of the voting system by naming 1st 2nd and 3rd place votes when voting shall we keep that going?
  21. no.. starting this week..
  22. 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
