please see giant BOLD rule #5 below! keep in mind that some rearranged suit&tie vocals are mandatory.
Fancy Dinner Party Of The Animals
Good morning Stone Throwers! Thank you so much for the surprising polkathrash love, it is my extreme honor to be your beat conductor again this week.
Here's the thing. Saint-Saëns is cool as shit.
Below please find 4 selections from his "The Carnival Of The Animals", performed by Leonard Bernstein and the NY Philharmonic, recorded off the very same vinyl I once listened to as a young cylinder.

The Kangaroo: http://www60.zippysh...67692/file.html
The Aquarium: http://www60.zippysh...83699/file.html
The Fossils: http://www60.zippysh...21962/file.html
Please sample one or all of these tracks. You may use clips of the guy talking too, but you have to sample some music.
1. No time limit
2. Outside drums and bass - allowed
3. Keys/other instruments - allowed
4. Cuts/scratches/acapellas - allowed
With the choice of four sources the submissions will sound pretty varied. So to tie it all together…
5. Special Rule: You MUST use some part of the Suit & Tie Acapella and chop it up/rearrange it/splice it with other vocals to form new sentences.
You could make a short vocal stab which you repeat every so often and work into the beat, or you can manipulate a long stretch of acapella, but you have to make the vocals say something NEW. To achieve this you may also paste in pieces of other acapellas/vocal clips etc. Use whatever you want, just make sure some part of Suit & Tie shows up. Let's practice some vocal chops.
Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 376" in the title and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight PACIFIC time. You may also add it to the Stones Throw Beat Battle Soundcloud Group.
Vote - by Friday at Midnight PACIFIC time
Winner: post new sample, rules, etc - by Saturday Noon NYC time and upload the sample here: http://www.zippyshare.com
As a side note, if you've got the inclination and ~26 minutes to listen, here's a 320kbps MP3 of the (nearly) full record. Sorry I cut off the ending. Spark one and take a trip to the zoo. We all know you do that.
