Whats up NG, this is my submission to the sample battle for the 2011 Newgrounds Hip Hop Competition.

So i guess ill start off with what i did, so much to write haha:

Drums: individually mastered/chopped "Mother Mother - Body of Years" , also added the snare from "Antibalas - Elephant"

Bassline: so much fun rearranging and changing the pitches from the sample "Sufjan Stevens - They Are Night Zombies"

Trumpet: essentially created my own trumpet synth by looping a section of the sample "Antibalas - I.C.E" and making it monophonic instead of polyphonic, then i created my own melodies WITH this synth present at these times: 0:21 - 024, 0:45 - 0:48, 1:27 - 2:15, 3:03 - End

Guitar / Piano: Several different rearranged and re-pitched samples from "Yann Tiersen - Dust Lane", several rearranged and re-pitched samples from "Art Tatum - You Took Advantage Of Me" several rearranged and re-pitched samples from "John Zorn - Pacifica", all with phaser effects, soundgoodizer, parametric EQ

Strings: rearranged and re-pitched samples from "Sufjan Stevens - A Short Reprise For Mary Todd"

Peak limiter was used for every individual channel as well as the master. Please dont make me write out more details, I did way too much stuff to remember exactly what I did haha...

Let me know what you all think and check out the others in this competition!

Oh god my brain <3

This reminds me so much of DJ Shadow's Endtroducing... and I love it. The fact that you took someone else's song(s) and made it your own is not an easy task, especially hard to make it sound good AND keep the listener in the song.

Well done my friend; I hope you do more of this so I can further enjoy you.

This, along with all of your other tracks...

have inspired me an awful fucking lot over the past 5/6 months now my friend.
I Don't think a night has gone by that i haven't left your shit playing till morning since I found your stuff here on Newgrounds.
You are incredible dude, and I would DEFINITELY jump at the opportunity to work together with you in the future to produce a track... even if only a small demo ><;
I dunno man, but if you are interested PLEASE get back to me at your soonest convenience.

I hope we'll be in touch, and keep up all of the producing magic bro; I cannot wait to see what you accomplish in the future
