Thanks to everyone who came out to Beat Cypher 9 last thursday, we were joined by Eric Lau, Beat Butcha, Metabeats and Louisden's own Jeekay who tore the house down!!, we'll be returning in June with more beat cypher action so stay tuned for news of that (and the footage/dvd...give us time!)
Now, back to the beat battles. It's been a while since we last had one, mostly down to the release of Behind Closed Doors volume 2 and getting the beat cypher geared up for 2010. But we're back with more challenges, starting with this one (if you hadn't realised, the league is now closed, we are on challenges until the 2010 league begins).
Homework 60 - "Little Brother Reflips"
Last week (as well as the unfortunate passing of Guru from Gangstarr :(, RIP!) saw the release of Little Brother's album "Left Back". Their final set contains beats from Khrysis, Denaun Porter, S1, Caleb and more. To mark Phonte and Big Pooh bowing out, we figured why not re-visit some of the samples used by their various producers over the years?
Dig out a Little Brother sample used in any of their songs over the course of their career (these are LB releases only, not solo projects), standard Louis' Den rules apply, synths are OK, sample must form main part of your beat.
Sunday 2nd May 2010, submit beats to email@example.com (please email the beats directly, links make the beat collection process a bit tricky so avoid it if possible)....so thats EMAIL to firstname.lastname@example.org no forum PM no myspace message...EMAIL!!.
Google is your friend!, but heres some starting places, although we hate to sample snitch..check the text file - http://www.sendspace.com/file/t4mqvr
and remember you've got the mixtapes "And Justus For All" and the "Gangsta Grillz" releases to dig up samples from if you know them!.
get to it...we're back!.
