Piano Instrumental Music, Sample Flip, RnB Hip Hop

I made this track with a sample from Pat Metheny. I love his music! So, I just wanted to see if I could even turn the sample into something with my signature sound. All I can say is, "WOW!" Yes, I'm often surprised at the end result of my experiments! This one is a little bit faster with the tempo, but it still has a nice groove. This is a good one for you work out routine. I named the track "Soul On Ice" after the book by Eldridge Cleaver. The book was sitting next to my monitor at the time I was making the track. Plus, I thought the title was a fitting reminder of the transformation I experienced, similar to Mr. Cleaver's.

A New Day

Piano Instrumental Music, Sample Flip, RnB Hip Hop

Watching the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States, I was moved by the scene in Washington, DC, on The Mall and the US Capitol grounds. The words "A New Day" came to my mind as I watched the people standing, waiting in the cold to hear their President...Our President, Barack Obama.

Here's a track you can groove to in celebration of our new President, President Obama, and "A New Day" in the history of our country.

RnB Hip Hop Beat, Sample Flip, Story Rap

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.
