Futuristic pulsating cinematic groove with Chinese Erhu

This version of Hood Butterflies has no samples and was customized for use by a German company.



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.

The Video

I was attempting to flip a sample from The Delfonics - Hey Love - but I ended up making the sample more obscure in this track that I call New Love.

Listen and Enjoy!

My idea of sampling involves wrapping the re-arranged pieces of sampled music in heavy instrumentation and orchestration. Check out this video I made showing how I use sampled music to create epic moody instrumental music.

Watch how I make sample flip beats and instrumental music using Propellerhead's Reason software, the Akai MPD32 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard. This video takes you into my thought process about sampling, chopping and flipping sample, and I give you tips on how to make music.
