Nope.
I finished 2 beats from both of those samples.
One using the "Misr Awakening" without the other one and made one with both samples.
One came out with a dark sound to it, and the other one is some air'y type shit I guess?
Looking forward to hear everybody elses stuff

yep should work fine both files were about 4 meg each. anybody else having probs with downloading the sample post up here and tell me and i will upload them somewhere else.

as far as the intro's jb, its ok with me personally....i have added the odd scratch here and there on some of my entries, i think a little bit of vocal or scratches is ok.

hope the samples are ok for people, its a real hard task to pick just one track knowing everyone is gonna be stuck with it for a week.....im sure if folk incorporate the two samples theres a good track in there somewhere......or just use one if you prefer, whatevers best.

btw - thanks alot for the comments in the last round everyone.

Good lookin out on the vocal intro...I think I've found a nice catch-all intro that I can throw in on tracks...maybe with a few adjustments here and there to personalize it...but nice nonetheless...

The samples were so simple and basic that everyone is gonna flip it BIG TIME to try for a different sound than everyone else...not too many people on here just go for the easy loops...

I'm finished. I'm not going to be at home tomorrow, but hopefully I'll get up in time to post the beat before I go to work :/
I tried, but couldn't put something together with samples from both songs, so I just made some kind of outro with one of them.

Nuff respect to anyone who manages to combine them real nice! (And to the West Staines Massive, of course...)

PencilFace...diggin that thumpin kick that drops every few bars..nice shit...also, when it first started up I was thinkin, "dammit...he got the same chops as me!!!" It's almost 100% in terms of the bits I chose to work with (at least in some spots)...lol

Bill Collector...nice idea, but some of those chops and stops & buggin. To me, the great thing about tabla drums is that they stay constant and kind of drone you into a trance...so the stutter-step stuff kinda killed that for me...still sick shit though...

Both of the beats gave me like some kind of erie type feelings
They'd sound good as like horror movie intro's. FORREAL.
Bill Kollecta, I wanted more of that second beat at the end!
Good shit, you guys.
I want to post mines too now, but seeing as it's only 5:36 here, I got some time to wait..
