Trying to spark up a little more contribution in the member submission subforum...((Spy))

...so I think it might be cool to have a little remix contest that any aspiring Hip Hop beat smith can tackle.

The contest:

Take a basic sample (provided here) and build a Hip hop beat over it to create a original instrumental Hip Hop production.

The Rules:

  • Use the sample provided and any additional samples and beats you want but the sample must be prevalent enough to recognize it as the primary sample.
  • Sample can be altered (sped up, slowed down, effects added) but still should be recognizable.
  • approx 3 minutes or less, we don't want an epic production, just a great beat.
  • Any software or hardware is permitted.
  • Song should be in high quality mp3 and uploaded to a third party hosting site (Like sendspace, etc.)
  • Obviously the resulting work still belongs to the producer, cratedigging.co has no interest in jacking beats.

After we get some volunteers, we will collect each production and have everyone vote on who did the best job making the beat.

The prize will be simply peer praise and pride from knowing that people like your beats besides yer mom. Technically this is just for fun for people that like to dabble in beat making, so have fun.


The Sample is From this...



The song is: Grover Washington Jr. - Dont Explain
Format is wav (1411 kbs)
The loop to use is obvious, use the short 2 piano bars. As soon as you hear that saxaphone, the loop is over, I left it in the wav file as a point of reference.


Any takers for this?
I know we have a few producers lurching here that can turn that piano loop into a whole new monster.

Sound off here, if we get at least 2 other people (besides myself) we can submit the instrumentals and have people vote for who did the best job on part 2 of this thread.

It's obviously not worth it if only 2 dudes are not afraid to put themselves out there for the scrutiny of the heads who dwell here. Once volunteers come forward we will set a reasonable deadline for submission.

Who's down for a lil beat competition?

Yeah, go on then.... I have been known to make beats. Only problem is that all my samples (bass, drums etc) have gone after my old HD died. So I'll be starting from scratch. But no worries. smiling smiley
