Don’t Sweat The Technique – Round 9

For this round of DSTT I put forward a track from a German record I picked up for $2 at a fair earlier in the year. It’s a strange record, a real mash Jazz, funk and some really open sounds of keys etc with varying tempos. Everything I want in a record to sample really. Some tracks have some German spoken word laid over the instrumentation . I’d love to get a translation of what he’s saying, that shit sounds serious.

Great use of the track from all producers. This segment was never intended to be a competition of who can make the best beat from the sample, that’s is a very subjective question in itself and we don’t want that shit here.  It’s intention is about listening to where the sample takes the producer and how their creativity gets them to the end result, if they use a whole loop or just a few notes of the melody. Thinking outside the box and putting forward a sample or a style of music to sample that’s out of someone’s comfort zone brings forward creativity in my opinion. Utilizing the skills and techniques to bring out your sound and letting the public see if they can pick it. This gives the public the opportunity to seek out some of the producers previous works also if they haven’t heard of them.

The sample probably wasn’t out of everyone’s comfort zone this round but it’s been fucking awesome to see what parts people chopped and looped and how creative everyone was. Thanks to all involved in the round.

Have a crack at guessing who made which beat during the week and I’ll reveal them Friday.

Grand Lodge 3 – Nothing to See Here

This looks like some new future is now shit, mad amped for it. Dash’s artwork looks fucking insane!

Information is the most essential tool for survival…

In this modern world however, truth is considered by many to be what we are told instead of what we know.
Wars are fought everywhere, laws being passed by governing bodies & rights are being stripped away from citizens in democratic societies throughout the “Free World” at an alarming rate.
The unseen war is the war for your mind, the information war…
To the victor goes the spoils & the right to ink the history books for the coming generations.
In a system that pull the wool over the eyes of its people, Nothing To See Here lifts the veil.
Grand Lodge 3 are essentially the Red Pill in this Matrix….
Press play, tumble down the rabbit hole.
