Okay, Diary is a break from the concept of this collection because it does not have the same beat or beat structure as other songs in the collection. This is one of those "spur-of-the-moment" tracks that I created after hearing the original by Alicia Keys. I just wanted to see if I could lay some of my own keys on the track.
Hey, if I don't do these experimental piano beats, I'll never find out what I can do.

RnB Hip Hop Beat, Sample Flip, Story Rap
Common's classic Hip-Hop track, "I Used To Love Her", is still one of the best Hip-Hop tracks ever!
Here's my sample flip beat made from that famous George Benson sample.
In this sample flip beat, the actual sample slips are primarily highlighted in the verses. The choppy rearrangement of the guitar sample slices is intentional and goes well with the bounce in this laid-back beat. I added string instrumentation in the later parts of the beat for emphasis.
I wanted to keep some of the sample familiar, but I didn't want this to be just another re-ue of the sample the way it is in Common's track.
I use Propellerhead Reason to make sample flip beats - sample flipping. This is How I Reason - #howireason.

Make Beats with Reason: Layering Samples - "Better" Sample Flip Beat
I made this video showing how I chopped and flipped the sample from Darwin Hobbs' "Better Is One Day" from his Worshipper album. In this video, I show how I layer samples in the NNXT device. The beat I'm working on in this video is called "Better" .
Flo is the track that started this whole collection. I came up with the idea of making a collection with the same beat (structure) after creating this track. I wanted to see if I could develop a collection that canges moods while keeping the same pace. So much of what I make here on TaurusBeats.com has such a heavy emphasis on the BEATS, I wanted to make the actual beats less important. The challenge is to make each song interesting enough on its own to keep the collection as a whole from being boring.
