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.

Watch How I Make This Beat

"Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)" is a soul song written by Thom Bell and Linda Creed. The song was a hit for the Philadelphia soul group The Stylistics in 1971, and was covered as a duet by Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross in 1973.

Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross version
Around the same time, Motown wanted their most successful label mates Gaye and Ross to record a duet album. Among the songs they released, their version of "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)" was recorded in separate studios, and was released as a UK only single from their duet album, Diana & Marvin, in 1973. The song became a hit in the UK reaching #25 on the UK Singles Chart. In America, "You're a Special Part of Me", which was the more successful offering.

In 2001 the Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross duet version was used as part of the movie soundtrack for Bridget Jones's Diary.

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya. I also learned that your a drummer - me to! When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows. I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know! I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood. Peace bruv Andy D, birmingham UK.
