Hi STBB Brothers and Sister..

My 100th stbb entry fast approaching..crazy..what a ride...
Winning my fifth!... it never gets old...still hella nervous...
Woke up twice this night...and I'm typing this an hour and a half before I actually need to get up.
It's a big deal to me... there have been weeks I spent up to 25 hours on my entry.

Gratitude and love go out to everybody who has helped me out with feedback
and and all other sorts of advice and support over the last two years.
I made some genuine friends through this forum. Some I meet for live collabin', chillin' and partying too :)

Sometimes I hear things of some past stbb members like yeah,
before two years ago things were different..better...
We challenged eachother and gave more feedback etc...
Well, I don't know..I wasn't there... yes I have fond memories of when I started out too... 
but I'll be damned if I say: things were better in the past and just leave it at that.
It is what you make it..and I'm sticking it out to see what happens regardles
This is just an awesome place to have fun and learn stuff... just ask!
Ed and Nellas rule with the feedback was great... trying not to forget to put a * in my titles.

Haha, my kid's happy... we're going out for a nice dinner to celebrate the win.


...Thanks for all the love... I do this all for you, my peers...and to be a dope ass mofo! :P

...oh, and the love for the craft of making music and rap of course haha...


...pz! ..I'm off to work!

Hey guys, thought you might like a feature story I just wrote on FruityLoops for Noisey. Got to talk Soulja Boy, 9th Wonder, Sonny Digital and Jhalil Beats among others. Also got to speak with the program's mysterious creator. Give it a read if you have a spare 10!

#349940 STBB behind the beat/Weekly winner interview

Posted by MazeOne on 21 February 2016 - 11:57 AM

STBB #467


1. MazeOne from Bavaria in Germany. Im 25 years old. I make beats for about 5 years now... 


2. There were no "limiting" rules that week so i didnt really think about it and just made the beat... 


3. I used 3 parts of the samplepack. I started up with some pitched up chops i used to play the melody you can hear from the beginning. Then i used a short bassnote i filtered and played besides the 808 bassline. I chopped up the bleeps and played it like an arp. I copied the sound and pitched it up one octave and did the same thing again at the end... I used a lot of reverb and effects on almost every sound to get that "spacey" feeling. I also added a synth lead with heavy reverb and delays on it. 


4. Drums are very important in my productions and i always take a lot of time to get them to sound dope. I started up with a drumbreak i pitched down, chopped it up and used an Equalizer to get rid of the low frequencys. Stacking drums is awesome and you get a really unique sound! I always do that. I added a filtered, punchy kick and a nice snare. The thing about the snare is, I actually recorded that snare from my monitor speakers with my smartphone and used the audio of the recording, put some filters and effects on it. The Idea was, I think punchy snares always sound dope in videos so I wanted to try it.. worked out pretty good i think haha... I use parallel compression or ny compression on the kick and the snare. If you dont know about parallel compression you should definately check it out on youtube! Once i found out about it, it changed my drumsound completely.. 

I think it was the first time i used a 808 bassline because Im not a big fan of 808 shit. But It sounded so dope, I just had to leave it in... 


5. I make all my Beats with Native Instruments Maschine. I have a microkorg and some other stuff but for that track i only used the Maschine... Never made a Beat with another programm or machine.. I just love the workflow and how quick you can convert your ideas into actual tracks.. 


6.I just wanna say, once i found out about the Stonesthrow Battles I made a lot of progress because sometimes you have to use samples you would not use normally. Makes you think outside the box. You have to get some dope stuff together to have a chance to win this because there are a lot of good cats taking part in the battle every week. Respect to all the Beatmakers! 


peace and good luck on the next battles!

#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.

#336977 Interview I did with Knx.

Posted by jax green on 22 April 2015 - 07:35 AM

yoo gang,

As I've said on here before, I used to write about hip-hop for a living (at XXL) and now do it on the side for sites like Noisey and Revolt. Recently I did an interview with Knx for Passion of the Weiss, which is the personal blog of hip-hop writer Jeff Weiss.


He and I had an awesome talk. We touched on wrestling, giving Dre beats, his work with Kendrick and more. Check it out if you have a spare minute:

Firstly thank you all for your comments and for voting me this weeks winner! I've been competing on here for a few years now and with the quality of work you all put out weekly, I didn't think I'd ever win. Cheers!


Right on with the challenge...


Before I started making beats I got into DJing and enjoyed QBerts 'Do it Yourself' videos (Check them on youtube if you haven't seen them!) therefore this week I thought that the challenge could be to utilise the famous scratch samples within your beat.  




I'm not saying that you need to scratch like QBert or even scratch at all - but try to include at least one of the battle sounds somewhere in your beat.



Outside drums and bass: allowed 
Outside keys/synths/instruments: allowed 
Outside samples: not allowed 
Vocalshots & Scratches: allowed 

Time limit: 2min30sec 


Special Rule:


Use at least one battle sample in your beat





Main samples
Battle samples


Happy Battling!
