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.

"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.

Dear Taurus,
I was searching on the internet to find out how I can possibly learn how to compose music. I write alot of lyrics but have the slightest clue on how to create music for them. Anyway I came across your website in the search engine and after listening to all, I mean every instrumental on here, I just had to tell you WOW!!! Your music is so heartfelt. Absolutely beautiful. And I must say very inspiring!!. Hopefully someday I can find a way to let myself be heard through music. Good Luck in all you do.

Sincerely Deena

What's good fam ? Yo I replied about that track earlier "When Im Gone". Man I need that joint super bad. I kept listening to it over and over and I already got a song wrote for it. Its about my grandmother that died while I was holding her hand and how I was rebellious but she continued to pray for me and I didn't give my life to Christ until after she passed. Man its mad emotional I was crying while I wrote it. Please get back at me fam. Grace and Peace - Ricon
