This is my submission for the hip hop competition Sample Battle. Let me break down what I used and from which songs I chopped them from. Before I start, let me say that I heavily pitched, eq'd, reverb'd and overall changed each instrument for the benefit of the mix.
Intro violins are from Sufjan Stevens - A Short Reprise For Mary Todd
All piano from 0:06-0:33 are from Sufjan Steves - They Are Night Zombies
All piano after that is a single piano note from John Zorn - Pacifica In which I was able to use that single note as an entire piano pretty much.
All drum samples are layered together from the drums from Antibalas - Elephant (Snare) John Zorn - Larkspur(Snare and Kick) and Mother Mother - Body of Years (Snare and a kick as well Hihats)
That bass synth you hear throughout the entire track is a from a bassy trumpet I chopped out of Antibalas - Elephant and then filtered and eq'd heavily to sound more synthy.
The synth/vocals you hear at 0:59 are vocal oh's from Mother Mother - Body of Years. At the end of the song it ends with oh's and that's where I chopped it out from and pitched to fit the song.
The bells that start at 2:05 are actually chord hits i chopped out of Yann Tiersen - Dust Lane and then pitched up to sound bell-ish like.
The new vocals that come in at 2:05 are from Mother Mother - Body of Years obviously (as the words that are being said are 'Body's of Years')
All Funk guitar tones from 2:15 and after are all from Sufjan Steves - They Are Night Zombies
And that is all of them
Worked on this piece for the past 4 days. Total time spent chopping, composing, and mixing is 5 hours and 50 minutes. Enjoy :)
