Project Description

Sample Battle

Sampling was king in the 90s, aka Hip Hop’s ‘Golden Era’ and if you were using synthesizers to make beats back then there’s a good chance you would be labeled corny. Think of your favorite rapper or producer from that period. What were his/her beats like?

With that rapper/producer in mind as inpiration, you are going to make a demo beat using the sample I provide. It’s not important that your beat is fully fleshed out and produced, just a simple loop is fine.

Upload your beat and tell me a little bit about how you chose to flip the sample. Why did you flip it that way? What was your favorite part of the process? What was your least favorite part, or what kind of problems did you encounter?

*Sample will be posted here by May 1*
