This flip from Rock Konducta...
I see where the main sample came from but then when the whole melody/bass line and drums drop - that's not from the record. right? i mean.. it's ill. what would your process be if you were doing something like that?
Madlib playing it live
Alot of people think Madlib just flips songs – including myself. This was disproven though, when I heard his flip of Apostrophe by Frank Zappa, also on RK. He uses parts of that song, but then a string thing comes in that is nowhere in that song. My guess is that he has a library of "stock sounds" memorized and if he hears something that he thinks it would work over, he'll try to combine them. It's pretty ill, this is what Pete Rock and the Bomb Squad and older school cats did alot of, but then it went out of style once it became all about flipping one particular record. I think combining two different records can create that "holy shit" moment in a way that you can't do with just flipping one song. I did it recently on this track.
edit: nvm, in this case he just added drums and sub bass. standard procedure.
