#333101 This is Not Hype

Posted by Waldo on 27 February 2015 - 03:47 PM

Peter Andres Marriott-Singh, or simply "DJ Pete Marriott", is the distinct name of the Brooklyn musician in the United States, that first began mixing break beats at the age of 15 during the Golden Era of Hip Hop, and who's music today is very likely to surpass human extinction, to echo the cosmos, reaching its destined "post human stage". Currently on the brink of a controversial, nationwide campaign to reshape Hip Hop back to its ancestral roots, his current musical manifestation consists of numerous small unconnected groups that all utilize Pete's signature conscious analog rhythms. They have all emphasized secrecy, all have called for purification of Hip Hop, and all are considered the third disjuncture of a master plan. The current manifestation is classified as #REALHIPHOP by the League of Hiphopopotamus and the Southern Rhymenoceros Center.


DJ Pete Marriott is estimated to have between 5,000 and 8,000 billion fans as of 2012, and the first Fan Club flourished in the Northern United States in the early 1980s, then died out by the late 1980s and went underground, where they remain today. Members made their own, often colorful, costumes: Adidas sneakers, Adidas sweat suits, and Kangol hats, designed to be outlandish yet funky fresh.


The second coming of DJ Pete Marriott flourished again nationwide in the early and mid-2010s, and adopted a standard black shirt and black hat wardrobe and code words #REALHIPHOP, while adding radical ego and mass ranting. Emerging now after a 4 month hiatus Pete plans to progress among minorities through a so-called epidemiological externalism of a simulated human-like persona. This second incarnation of the DJ Pete Marriott is the best yet, and has made frequent reference to the Golden Age of Hip Hop and harking back to its original nativism.


Though most fans of DJ Pete Marriott see themselves as holding to Hip Hop values and morality, virtually every sound wave produced by the man has the technical ability and motivation to create a completely new musical era. Rumors have spread that Pete's long range planning for #REALHIPHOP2 will develop beyond the foundation of Hip Hop. This album will mark the third coming of DJ Pete Marriott, restructure musical science, theologically reestablish the cosmological rhythms, and back DJ Pete Marriott into the heart of God -- morphing them together as one, past the simulation of time and space.


Prepare to swan dive into the timeless archetype of consciousness and all encompassing infinite-energy that is to one day soon be, DJ Pete Marriott.

does having multiple samples bother anyone else? some of you newer guys probbably dont even remember a time when the battles had only 1 sample (and maybe a break, too). being able to pick from multiple samples kind of kills the competition for me. the best thing about having only sample is that it takes you out of your comfort zone, which usually results in good results because you can't just apply your formula to it, you have to get creative and work hard. if we get a dozen samples to choose from, naurally we're going to sample whatever we think is most dope, which makes it easier to make a beat.

good entries this week!


short list


la food- reverse new school love it


dwayne!- them vox tho!


sixfingahzzzz- majorly major!!!!


mike-a-veli- BEST INTRO EVER


slanteyez- yasssss that swing!


aktron- glitchy, smooth, killer drums, awesome work!


saadyah- the drums in the second part and the synth work were clutch!


morsecode- that laid back vibe was perfectttttttt


the winner this week was tough, but i really loved what PETE RANGE did with the electronic vibe. def should have some dope lyrics to grace this one.


thanks for the comments, votes, general awesomeness! this is a great place to get feedback and to improve.




a six finger bitch slap must hurt like hell. but i have something to add to the discussion about lack of interaction. soundcloud in general was originally intended for musicmakers to interact and collaborate with each other. forums like this one were intended to get those people all on the same page. it can be a tool to improve ONLY IF YOU USE IT CORRECTLY. as an instrumentalist and (so far) lifelong student of music, i find myself spending a lot of time LISTENING AND SHEDDING other peoples' music. you will never grow if you never explore music. I would never get better if it wasnt for me listening to cats like six, bmc, areou, etc freaking these beats and making them interesting. and you can tell from my first beat to the ones i've been posting lately that there is a LOT MORE MOVEMENT. its not an accident. i didnt wake up one day and say, "gee i should probably stop playing the same 4 bar lick for 3 minutes straight." through listening and seeing how other fellow producers flipped the same materials i had to work with, I grow. you wanna post beats and pump your stats, but dont want to interact and be a part of the thread? fine by me! i really dont mind! honestly! but i really feel bad for these kind of people, as they will have a VERY tough time growing as artists. ask ANY successful producer, they are shedding other people's music CONSTANTLY. just two cents that i might or might not have contributed.


ferran adria said himself (the god father of modern cuisine) in an interview with one of my old chefs that he spends about 80 percent of his time researching and learning, and 20 percent of the time actually cooking and working in the kitchen. and hes the john coltrane of cooking and was also the ONLY culinarian to be invited to documenta 12. food for thought.

A rule saying: Only beats posted on the forum may receive votes

how is that any different than adding one's beat to the soundcloud group? you'll still have a ton of people that dont vote.

and you're never going to get everyone that flips a beat to vote. this has been an issue (with a few people) for years. honestly i'm surprised that even 20+ people vote every time.

this is just a theory but i less people are voting because there is less competition ever since the trend of multiple samples/sample packs started. each sample has a totally different vibe, so voting comes down much more to personal taste, mood, whatever you're feeling at the moment, like "yeah i like this down tempo smooth shit" (because they sampled the jazz sample) or "omg this is a str8 bangin ass battle beat woooh str8 neck snapper" (because they sampled the rock sample) rather than "yes, that is definitely the BEST flip." i think if we go back to just 1 sample, even without some kind of specialty rule, people will not only step their game up but also vote more since everyone is really battling to see who did IT (flip the sample) the best, rather than seeing who can make the most off the wall shit or just pick which ever sample caters to their own style and just keep doing the same type of beats they always do.

#332720 New Dilla Donuts pressing

Posted by JJ on 19 February 2015 - 04:41 PM

I don't get why VMP wouldn't have made this the February release seeing all the history attached to the month and the record.

This was the original plan.  I believe the change might have had something to do with the realities of pressing vinyl.  With the major labels back in the vinyl game it's added a month to our average pressing time.

Dilla's legacy is slowly becoming the Star Wars: Special Edition Box Set of hip-hop collections.

I can't speak on all Dilla box set stuff, but Donuts will be continued to be in print and reissued – in good taste – for as long as people continue loving this music, hopefully long enough to outlive all of us. That's not a bad thing for an artist's legacy, it's a part of a legacy.

I wrote about this on the board a couple years back when Mr Gerbick asked "Why another Donuts version?"
