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.

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.

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.
