I'm new to the community, I just wanted say hello and share a new track which I love. I've been making beats for about three years now. I really dig what stones throw has put out. So, I am glad to finally join the community

 

I'm really hoping to gain some knowledge from everyone and be turned on to some new interesting styles. Much respect, please take a listen if you like.

That's really awesome man. I loved what I heard on that track. Really creative rhymes and beats. The quality of production and sound has the right amount of grit/ambience/nostalgia that I like.

 

Looking forward to that album. I'm thinking about buying some technics with serato so I can mix and play my tracks live. As well as do some cool guitar work over them later on. My first love was guitar and heavy metal.

Hey thanks a lot man. I really liked your track as well. It had a very calming vibe with some cool child like sounds. It was like a lo fi play house. I really enjoyed and I'm looking forward to hearing more on stream. I hope that more people will share their music in this thread. It's inspiring stuff.

what about punk?

 

i've been in a k-hole of Los-Angeles-based-Post-Punk from like the late '70s-late '80s for the past seven months.

i've been in a k-hole of Los-Angeles-based-Post-Punk from like the late '70s-late '80s for the past seven months.

Well I grew up in Boyle Heights, then moved to montebello. My introduction to punk was in high school with bands like the Misfits (which young Mexican-Americans seem to love where I'm from), The Buzzcocks, Suicidal Tendencies (which can sometimes be thrash). I got into some of it, but I was more into Metallica, Pantera, Exodus, Anthrax and the more shreddy stuff. Sometimes though I like a good punky/thrash mix like Municipal Waste. I'm all over the map.

 

As far as hip hop goes, I was in love with all the west coast gangster stuff I heard on Power 106 in the 90s. The old school weekends and the Micky Ficky Mix. Also, 92.3 the beat back in the day. I got off hip hop around the time I hit high school and put down the playstation controller to pick up guitar. Learned to shred, here's me in college (I'm wearing a wig and sunglasses with my Raiders Sweater back in 2009):

 

But then, I found MF DOOM. I found Hip Hop again. But the more elevated groups like De La, Tribe, Mos, Erykah Badu etc etc. I had to become more elevated to appreciate their thoughts and sounds. College really helped with that. After that I started working on Hip Hop with Reason in recycle and realized that I had a knack for it. It became really simple and awesome excuse to explore every genre of music, listen and catch a sample. So that's what I've been up to. Ultimate dream, Doom rhyming on a track of mine.

have you tried sampling any of that shit?

punk/metal/thrash/hardcore/etc. is fertile ground for beatmakers cause everyone's been afraid to touch that genre as of yet.

I tried to sample some Slayer the other day, but I was not feeling it. I think the 80s was a great time for Rock sampling though. It needs to be approached in that fun charasmatic feel. For example

 

Beastie Boys-Rhymin' Stealin samples Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin

 

Also, Tone Loc Sampled Van Halen's Jamie's cryin on Wild thang

 

 

 

Or Even the great LL Cool J on-Go Cut Creator Go samples Chuck Berry and AC/DC

I would love to do something with this feel with an 808 beat and some really hype Rhymer. Wow, that sounds amazing. I honestly feel like the world needs LL and a TR-808 to get together.
