The Story

I created this version of Hood Butterflies for a German company to use in advertising. The original version of this song is a sample flip beat that I created some years back.

This was a cool experience for me because I was able to demonstrate my skills at converting the sample flip version into a complete original by actully performing the sample flip parts of the original song. The hardest part was finding the Chinese Erhu instrument.

After finding the erhu, I was able to perform what I flipped in the original version. Then, I layered various strings and other instruments to fill in the musical space. My client was very pleased with the result.

From the "Grown-man Hip-Hop" collection.

This would make a nasty steppers' track. With just a little bit of piano, string accents and horns - yeah, i'd like to see some folks step tight to this.

Flo (Piano Freestyle)

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.
