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.

RnB Hip Hop Beat, Sample Flip, Story Rap, Party Beat

Here's another one for the Bad Bull Beats collection. I used a sample from the Marvin Gaye/Diana Ross track, "Stop, Look, Listen". I started out with a Hip-Hop track in mind, but it quickly changed into a nice R&B dance track as I kept pulling other sounds from the sample.

This sample flip beat features my "bouncy style of sample flipping, where I do a lot more rythmically with the sample chops/slices. I composed all of the other instrumentation around the sample flip to make a dynamic beat. You really have to gear the end o this one.

Freestyle Piano Practice

I woke up one morning and decided to do another Piano Freestyle to get some practice in. i use piano freestyles as a way to teach myself how to play piano and develop my ear (ear training).

This time, I'm freestyling over the Mobb Deep instrumental "Shook Ones Part II"

Mobb Deep Shook Ones Part II... Jazz Remix?

Mobb Deep is one of my favorite Hip Hop groups and the music they made struck a chord and connected with me emotionally. Even at 45 years old, I still rock Mobb Deep's "Survival of the Fit" everyday in the gym.

This performance is another way that I am working to positively Inspire, Influence and Impact people around the world to "Strike a Chord" and connect emotionally.

Piano Instrumental Music, Hip Hop, Original Music

Sunny Days is another one of my piano experiments in making moody instrumental music. (I should just call it piano music, but I'm still working on the whole piano-playing thing.)

My music compositions process was pretty much the same as always. First, I constructed the beat. Then, I developed a chord progression and bass line. Next, I developed melodies through piano improvisation. Finally, I wrapped the whole thing with orchestral instrumentation.

The final result of this piano-featured instrumental music reminds me of an interesting cross between part of the "Sesame Street" theme song and "Can You Stand The Rain" by New Edition (produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis).

My Favorite Part is the piano. The different expressions I came up with in the two verses are pretty cool, and the way I changed the mood in each verse is nice, too. Like a lot of my moody instrumental music, this song has a big ending that contrasts the beginning verse. You gotta listen to the whole song to get the changes.

I named this song "Sunny Days" because the music reminds me that storms and cloudy days don't last forever. I want to encourage people who listen to this moody instrumental to really appreciate the sunny days in life. Troubles don't last always. Dark storms give way to "Sunny Days".
