"4 Down" Original, organic Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

This is one of the original compositions in my Moody instruMental Music collection "CMA Beats" available for download here at TaurusBeats.com.

4 Down is a four-on-the-floor dance track that features piano and lush orchestration to create a mood that is serious, intens, romantic and impassioned.



For this composition, I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. Be sure to check out my Reason Beat Making Video Tutorials, where I show you how to make Moody instruMental Music and sample flip beats.

Made for Computer Music Academy (CMA) Homework Assignment #64

Weekly Homework Podcast #48 | Beats | Computer Music Academy

Your assignment this week is to create a Four on the Floor track (organic or sample based) within your own genre. Your 4 kick pattern should be the first thing you lay, then build everything else around it. By building around the kicks, I mean by interweaving the rest of your music on top of, around and in between them. Let the kicks drive and while the rest are passengers. Experiment! Come up with some sickness that's out of your comfort zone. Since this is different from our “Electronic/Dance Music” Assignment, I'd like to see the peeps that normally make that style to try something different, but stick to the script. I'm pretty sure all of you will kill this. This assignment is due Sat 9.27.14 @ Midnight EST. Your submission should be 2:30 of less.

Even though I'm using Propellerhead Reason to make my Moody instruMental Music creations, you can use my tips and techniques in any DAW to create your own music and make beats.

On The Surface - Reason Beat Making - "Stirred Not Shaken"

This is one of the tracks on my Moody instruMental Music collection "Stirred Not Shaken" inspired by Building 429's "We Won't Be Shaken" track.

There are no samples or sample flips in this one. I explain how and why I put together the piano parts and the rest of the instrumentation.

I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. I'm showing you how to make Moody instruMental Music using Reason as I create another one of my Moody instruMental Music creations - "On The Surface".

"Contact" Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Contact is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat. 

"bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat."

This is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film, video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a film music piece. This short version uses various horn and bass chops of a blue-eyed soul sample.

Great fit: playing this track while driving on long road trips.
