Don’t Sweat the Technique – Round 7

This month we tried to get a bit of a Christ theme happening over April with Easter and all. AkidcalledChubz didn’t hit us with the obscure uptown gospel joints but he did come through with a deadly OST. The soundtrack to the film, The Cross and the Switchblade which was based off a book from the 60’s about a minister who turns around the lives of NY gang members life through Christ…That was the Easter link and we ran with it. Decent soundtrack, Chubz had a couple of tracks to choose from but I though this one would be the most interesting to flip.

Was great to see how these three utilized and approached the sample differently, giving some pretty varying results. All heaters in their own right. Shouldn’t be too tough to pick this round. Cheers to all involved. I’ll reveal next week sometime. Enjoy.

Don’t Sweat the Technique – Round 6 Results

Strange results on this. The votes were all over the shop. We had some thinking Tornts made Beat 2 and  some thinking he made beat 4 which was by Dontez. Myself and Kharnivor were on even votes for beat 1. Great sample and  great round. Cheers again to all that were involved and all that had a guess on this. Only planning on making this shit bigger with the more people that jump on board. Next round. We’re preparing an Easter special for round 7. Producers will have to think outside the box for this one I’m guessing. Maybe we’ll level the playing field some more to disguise some of the producers by dishing out the same drum break??

Don’t Sweat the Technique Round 6

Reached out to Dontez for our sample this month for DSTT. Here’s a few words about what he come up with. Peace Donny!

Aseke Poletus

Estonian instrumental jazz fusion and progressive rock band, active 1980-1984.

I picked this beauty up from an overseas seller who was getting rid of several Euro rock records. I offered him a deal for 10 or so & this is one of the LP’s that had plenty heat to work with. This entire record has some monumental gems that I thought were too eazy to flip so I’ve gone with a more complicated Jazz/fusion joint which rides in & out of different tempo’s and intensities. I’m not going to reveal name the track though. That’s for you diggers to figure out.

Have a guess at which producer made which beat and I’ll follow up next week with the results. Cheers to everyone getting us involved and helping us build.

Dont Sweat the Technique – Round 5

This month I reached out to our DSTT main stay regular Servo for a sample to flip. He hit us off with one of his recent op-shop digs Dudley Moore (British actor/ Jazz Musician) – The World of Dudley Moore. I would have picked this up for that hair alone. That mop perm stay one hunid son!

Servo dropped a gem on us, choosing, ‘A sad one for George’. Slinky Jazz bass, aired out keys and dusted grooves on this joint.

Thanks to all producers and servo for supplying the dig. From the feedback I’ve had I think we all enjoyed making something out of this sample, there was so many options.

Take a listen to the OG and peep the parts used for the beats and take a guess at who you think made what. I’ll follow up this post with the results next week.

Don’t Sweat the Technique – Round 4 Results

Well…I was wondering why no results were showing up for the poll for Round 4. I must have fingered up the post and not added it. Apologies.

Producers revealed below for anyone interested.

Stay tuned for round 5 next month,  should be a cracker.

Don’t Sweat the Technique – Round 3 Results

Tough sample this round, looks like it was pretty split in finding the difference between Matty and LG. Thanks to  Matty Fresh and Lazy Grey for taking part and everyone who voted.

Don’t Sweat the Technique – Round 3

This round I thought I’d mix it up and jump out of the comfort zone of just diggin something decent from the crates. My goal was to head to the local Vinnies with $10 and hit up anything, not even Kamahl was off limits for this one..Just grabbed whatever I could for that amount.

Turns out my local only had 6 records. You should have seen the old prunes face light up with delight when I copped all 6 haha. She followed by telling me how much she love the seekers etc..Run Royal stay helping out the needy and unfortunate by coppin’ them dollar joints. 6 clams in total. I had a little video done up of me listening through the records but my camera fucked out at the midway point. Pretty mind numbing stuff even with some comic relief. Maybe next time?

Anyway, this month I invited few more producers than you’ll see posted. They were either too busy, didn’t get the memo or straight pussied out when they heard what I can only describe as a pretty underwhelming sample but, it was all I could really find with some variation throughout. Did some research and this dude has a fuck off discog, I’m suprised I have’nt see more of his shit as most of it would have been pressed here in Australia under ‘Music for Pleasure’. Certainly made all three of us think outside the box a little this round.

Cheers to Lazy Grey and Matty Fresh for getting involved. Much respect!

Sample is The Magic of Kostelanetz – Seventy Six Trombones
