This East Coast type beat was something I put together in a few minutes. I was thinking about Pete Rock and EPMD on this one for the beat and bass line. The strings and other stuff are my thing.

Folks like to say "No Samples" when they make beats. That's cool. I can't say no samples, because I make music on a computer. Everything is sampled! But I can say that everything you hear is original from me. I programmed the beat and I played all the instruments you hear. So, how's that?

Look At Us Now

"Look At Us Now" Original, organic Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James 

Look At Us Now is a smooth, laid-back, reflective original beat featuring a light piano, bass and and strings over a lo-fi drums. Think "EPMD" on this one.

"Smooth, laid-back, reflective beat like EPMD."

I was thinling about the people I grew up with in SouthEast Washington DG when I made this song. I was thinking that maybe one day I would rap my own verses over it. The groove is laid back with a sparse piano and strings in the verses, along with a simple bass line that helps keep everything steady. More strings and horns (trumpets) are brought in during the chorus. The song is steady throughout and serves a a background track for a vocalist, or just background music or lounge music. The rhythmic beat  is solid and smooth and jhas ust enough bounce to make you want to nod your head a little. 

I love playing this track while watching  videos about the universe, space, galaxies, etc.

This is another CMA Beat,
