A The New Beatmaker Favourite Comes Correct yet again

'The next serving from the Handpicked roster comes from Bristol beatmaker Ile Flottante, who’s Beats of a Third Kind project bridges the gap from Terra to Stellar, sending you blasting through the solar spectrum, fat caps in hand, with a broadcast of bomb beats designed for bumping in your boombox.'

My First Beat Placement: 'Crystal City' on Nub Music's 100xmas30 Christmas Album!

I have been a fan of the UK Indie music Powerhouse Label Nub Music since this Your Beats submission back in early 2013:

http://www.thenewbeatmaker.com/2013/02/your-beats-feuertrunken-by-this-is-ethmo.html

Since then the label has boasted a plethora of essential releases and have developed an ingenious music model with their '100x...' releases which echo the post J Dilla 'Donuts' ethos of short but sweet sonic compositions.  This ethos is part a reaction to the ADHD world of 140 characters and thirty second video clips that one finds themselves in; and partly a shrewd business calculation that seeks to get as much revenue back from streaming sites which independent artists especially often find themselves at odds with:

Say Nub music:

'SO - when Spotify and other streaming companies now pay out a royalty for any track over THIRTY seconds long - why then write longer songs? 

WHY not adapt to the modern day media, and write songs that are indeed thirty seconds long? The album is also about creating awareness of the lack of decent royalties trickling through for artists and songwriters.'

Their latest release takes the logical progression of over 100 thirty second songs by Nub Music roster and friends with a Christmas theme.

I have the great honor and pleasure of being one of those friends, with my Christmas themed 'Crystal City' track.

Check out both my track, and the whole project, below.

Many thanks to all at Nub music - and you for visiting the site - for all the support this year.

Have a merry Christmas / happy Holiday season, here's to a happy, healthy, prosperous and safe 2017 to you all,

Lee

Sa'id 'The Best of Times' Album Release

New Album from MC, Teacher and Major Inspiration for The New Beatmaker 

BROOKLYN, NY — Sunday November 6, 2016 — Sa'id (Amir Said), founder of BeatTips, the popular beatmaking and music education website, the independent publishing house Superchamp Books, and author of the books The BeatTips Manual and The Art of Sampling, just released his new album The Best of Times. The Best of Times features beats and rhymes written, produced, and performed entirely by Sa'id; and in addition to being entertaining, thought provoking, and full of feeling, it is meant to serve as an example of the ideas, methods, and practices found in his books. "This album represents one of the best ways for me to further discuss the kind of information and insight that you'll find in both The BeatTips Manual and The Art of Sampling," says Sa'id.

"Everything that I do with BeatTips is about continuing the discussion, finding new ways to help expand the beatmaking community at large. But of course, I'm also an artist. I rhyme and I make beats. So also it means a lot to me that I have this opportunity to put out music on my own terms and watch it compete on the open market. Plus, I'm an advocate for beatmakers (producers) putting out their own projects. Whether it be as beatmaker-rappers or as part of duo or group, I believe that the most sustainable path for beatmakers (producers) is the path that includes creating and putting out their own projects, rather than chasing or waiting for a beat placement. So I'm following my own advice in that regard."

Although The Best of Times has no features in the traditional sense, it does have an important co-star. "What makes this album really special to me is that I've done it with the help of my son, Amir Ali Said," says Said. "Amir, who is the co-executive producer along with me, has been extremely instrumental — literally speaking — to this album. My son is living in Paris at the moment. I just recently returned to New York from there. And we wanted a way to stay connected until I made my way back to Paris. So as a challenge and a way for us to really stay connected, I asked him to dig in the crates — e-dig — and pick music for me to sample. No one knows my ear better than Amir. That's my son. He's on the cover of The BeatTips Manual. He's been hearing me make and talk about music his entire life. So I completely trust his judgment. I knew that he would send me stuff that I could catch wreck on. That's why Amir is the co-star of this album. He sent me handpicked music to flip, and I flipped it."

BeatTips has provided the most trusted information on the craft, culture, and business of beatmaking/hip hop production since 2002. The 1st edition of ‘The BeatTips Manual’ was published by Superchamp Books in 2002, the same year BeatTips.com was founded. Used by beatmakers and in schools around the world, in 2007, ‘The BeatTips Manual,’ now widely held as the standard for hip hop production education, was featured in New York University’s first course on beatmaking and hip hop production. Since then, ‘The BeatTips Manual,’ now in its 6th Edition, has been used in countless schools and institutions of higher learning, including The Berklee College of Music and the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), and it continues to be recognized as the definitive beatmaking/hip hop production book around the globe, confirming its status as one of the most important music studies of our time.

Guest Post: Vincent Hill on Performing the Perfect Cover Song

The art of the cover version is explained by Guest Blogger Vincent Hill (musicskanner.com).

It's with great pleasure that I present a first for The New Beatmaker: a guest blogger, Mr Vincent Hill.

In his own words, Vincent Hill loves Music and Dance.  He keeps himself updated about the recent music and dance trends and likes sharing his views by writing.  He is currently working with Music Skanner: musicskanner.com.
Vincent Hill

Performing the Perfect Cover Song;Vincent Hill 

Many musicians nowadays are performing cover songs because people like hearing someone else’s interpretation of a song.

However, there are specific rules that you should follow if you want to make a great cover song.  For many, these rules aren’t difficult, but they do require some practice.

If you use everything I will mention in this article, you can be sure that your cover song will be successful and impressive!

Chosen by Lee TNB (thenewbeatmaker.com Editor and Chief Writer), Jacob McCaslin's take on a Marvin Gaye's classic is the quintessential cover version. 

Bring something fresh

If you sing or record a song in its original form, people won’t necessarily like it.  While most people do like simple covers, mostly because they want to hear a different voice, others love it when you change a song in a very special way.  You won’t be able to appeal to everyone but try to be as creative as possible.

Pick the right songs

Not all songs fit your voice, and you shouldn’t try to sing the ones that you simply aren’t able to. If you are unsure about what songs you want to cover, you can try using the music skanner website (musicskanner.com); it should help you get started with the correct choice.

Great respect for the original song

I’ve heard covers that simply butcher the original song and give it no respect.  People notice this, and ultimately, they hate that specific cover.  You should have massive respect for the original song, even if you don’t usually listen to that sort of music.  Respect the original artist and song, and people will grow to love your cover!

Respect the original artist and song.
- Vincent Hill, musicskanner.com

Singing with a band

Cover songs get better with more original sounds that you have.  This means that cover songs which are recorded by bands usually end up the most popular and loved.  You can start by simply singing, but I recommend you find and join a band so that you can release amazing cover songs.

Remembering your lyrics

You need to know the song lyrics perfectly if you don’t want to be ridiculed for your performance. Sometimes, lyrics can’t be adequately understood in the original song.  If that happens, you should do your best to find the original lyrics and learn the song entirely.

Encourage people

Start with encouraging yourself; tell yourself that you are good and that people will love your covers. Then, start encouraging your band, so they perform even better.  Lastly, you can try encouraging people to listen to your songs, although this won’t be necessary if your cover is amazing.

Have fun!

Most of all, have fun! Recording cover songs isn’t a business, and you shouldn’t pretend it is one. Music is supposed to make you have a good time, and it should be respected as such.  Even if something doesn’t work out – don’t forget to have fun!

*Remember to research and adhere to applicable laws in relation to cover versions.

Jessamyn Rains 'Land of the Living' Lee TNB Stone Tape Remix: Indaba Music Competition Entry

Jessamyn Rains 'Land of the Living' Lee TNB Stone Tape Remix

If you enjoy the below, please be sure to share, embed, link, etc, and vote.  


The song style and subject matter brought to my mind films such as 'The Others' and podcasts such as 'Midnight in the Desert'.

I was inspired to turn the vocals into a message from 'the other side': whereby you cannot hear exactly what is being said, but it still connects with you on an emotional level.
I was inspired to turn the vocals into a message from 'the other side': whereby you cannot hear exactly what is being said, but it still connects with you on an emotional level. 
The bassline especially was reshaped to act as a 'wall' between the listener and the vocals.  The vocals were distorted in a number of ways to further build this wall or a veil between 'the other side' and 'The Land of the Living'.

A slightly psychedelic folk intro gives way to a second half inspired by UK 90's rave and drum 'n' bass.

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did creating.

All elements (aside from electronic drum sounds) are samples from Jessamyn Rains 'Land of the Living'

Electronic drum sounds: Native Instruments MASCHINE

DAW: REAPER
