Face Me is a Scarface Type Beat that is perfect for Story Rap or story telling like one of the greatest Gangsta Rap Artists - Scarface. When I made this Sample Flip Hip Hop beat, I had Scarface in mind.
Face Me as a Story Rap Beat
Rap is one of the elements of Hip Hop and the greatest MCs are able to tell stories while moving the crowd. Scarface is one of the best, if not THE best, storyteller in the so-called Gangsta Rap sub-genre of Hip Hop.
As a story rap beat, Face Me is perfect for any story teller because the feel and tempo of the beat.. Even without an MC, Face Me tells a story as the beat moves from beginning to end with changes that accent the overall moodiness and feel.
Face Me as a Sample Flip Beat
This is one of the sample flip beats in my Moody instruMental Music collection "CMA Beats" available for you to download here at TaurusBeats.com. This is a story rap beat that I would love to hear one of the best story rappers put lyrics to - Scarface.
For this sample flip beat, 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.
Face Me was Featured in the Computer Music Academy (CMA) Weekly Homework Assignment Podcast #45

Actually the full title of this song is "Magnum Opus a.Father Padilla Meets The Perfect Gnat b.Howling At The Moon c.Man Overboard d.Industry On Parade e.Release The Beavers f.Gnat Attack".
It is a collection of leftover bits and pieces from both Walsh and Livgren that were cut and pasted together to make this song. The original title was "Leftoverture", but Dave Hope suggested that would be a better name for the album. When Wally Gold the bands manager, suggested Magnum Opus for the song, the switch was made.
All the members were given writing credits.

All original musical composition - no samples in this track.
This is a move back into my Moody instruMental Music sound in the midst of all of the beats that I have created for Bad Bull Beats Volume 1.
I made this sample beat after watching Master Jesse West in his YouTube video. This one combines the melodies of two different samples from two completely different songs.
Respect! to Master Jesse West!
Looking for someone to proclaim Christ on this one. Hit me up if you got lyrics for it. I can always take the piano parts out and re-arrange it.
Just West - Sample Flip Beat Made w/ Reason 4 Akai MPD32 M-Audio Oxygen25
This is Moody instruMental Music that I made using Propellerhead Reason 4.01 software, the Akai MPD32 USB/MIDI controller and the M-Audio Oxygen25. In the song, I flip two different samples and add my own piano improvisation and other instrumentation.
In this video, I'm showcasing another one of my Moody instruMental Music creations - "Just West" - a beat I made using Propellerhead Reason. Props to Jesse West (Godsuhn) for the inspiration! I use the sample from his video "The Art of Sampling Part 2".

"Strawberry Vapors Keys" Keys Loop - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James
Strawberry Vapors Keys is a keyboard and piano loop.
"Strawberry Vapors" is another CMA Beat,
For this keyboard and piano loop, I'm using Propellerhead Reason 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.
"Chill" Original, organic Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James
Chill is a smooth, laid-back track featuring a lighter piano than I normally do. Think "Art of Noise" on this one.
"Smooth, laid-back, piano instrumental music like Art of Noise."
I wanted something that gradually builds, with a real slow and controlled emotional tug. At the same time, I wanted to still include the beat in such a way that signifies my style - cracking snare and thumping kicks. The drums are more rhythmic with stutter kicks and sychopated percussion elements to enhance the overall movement.
I love playing this track while watching videos about the universe, space, galaxies, etc.
