On The Surface - Reason Beat Making - "Stirred Not Shaken"

This is one of the tracks on my Moody instruMental Music collection "Stirred Not Shaken" inspired by Building 429's "We Won't Be Shaken" track.

There are no samples or sample flips in this one. I explain how and why I put together the piano parts and the rest of the instrumentation.

I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. I'm showing you how to make Moody instruMental Music using Reason as I create another one of my Moody instruMental Music creations - "On The Surface".

Mr. Dilla

James Dewitt Yancey (February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006), better known by the stage names J Dilla and Jay Dee, was an American record producer and huge inspiration to me. I was most impacted when I watched and listened as an orchestra played his music. That experience gave me chills.

i never met Mr. Yancey, but I have been moved by his music over the years. "Mr. Dilla" is a tribute to J Dilla, pointing to the broader reach of his music, crossing boundaries continuously through time and space.

"Mr. Dilla" is a smooth groove with Jazz and RnB-Funk flavor.

Digging in the Crates

I was a DJ for about 8 years before I started producing music. "Digging in the crates" was all I did during that time and now I find it just as valuable today.

Brought Low

A sad, heartfelt track featuring piano.

"Brought Low" Original, organic Beat, piano music - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James 

Brought Low is a sad, heartfelt track featuring piano. This is a tribute to my friend and band mate, Curtis Price.

I wanted something that gradually builds, with a real slow and controlled emotional tug. 

This is another original composition.

Made for Stirred, Not Shaken moody instrumental music collection

I sent you a message a while back but never got a response. You are probably the main reason I gave up my Mpc 2500 and went with Reason and the Mpd 32....I'm still making music with the combo....thanks Taurus. :-)
