Je Suis Amour - Reason 4 beat instrumental sample flip hip hop beat on Youtube

When I made this sample flip beat, I got a lot of comments about the piano part at the beginning being offbeat or our of sync with the rest of the beat. The people who made those comments didn't realize that I intentionally played the piano parts in an offbeat manner to lead into the way I smooth the track out during the verses. I knew that not everyone would understand or get that I was setting up a contrast in the very beginning.

Overall, this track is a smooth, RnB-type beat with some hard edges. I wanted it to be epic-sounding in the sense that I present two extremes - hardness and softness - at the same time before going into the distinct separations found in the verses. Again, not everyone will get or understand what I'm after when I put my Moody instruMental Music out there. That's okay.

I ended up re-making the track (Je Suis Amor C) without the contrasting intro. In the remake, I actually eliminated a lot of the smoothed out elements and just presented a straight-forward hard-hitting beat. The remake also has me playing most of the parts that I sampled in the original. That was a cool exercise, in which I mimicked the sounds from the sample flips using various instrument sounds in Propellerhead Reason. I was actually surprised that so many of the sound substitutes did not require a great deal of altering. For example, the orchestral stabs are already in the Reason Factory Sound Bank. I easily remade the main horn sample flip using trumpets and french horns. It all came together nicely with me playing the instruments the way I flipped the original sample.

Bedlam

- a scene of uproar and confusion.

I don't know why I named this beat Bedlam. I think it was because there was an OU/OSU football game being advertised at the time I was making it.

Anyway, this experimental Hip-Hop beat has a little bit of a feeling of uproar and confusion. The beat drives hard and the instrumentation at the end gives it a good accent.

This version has more of my experimental, improvisational piano playing.

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.
