New Track - Hoodlum

Hoodlum by dr rasclut

I fancied making some Dilla beats, and this is the result. I spent ages sampling around, that's the hard part. You've gotta have a really good ear, and not just for rhythm and beats. Finding snippets of melody can really bring it together too. I think you have to have a go at it yourself to realise how genius people like Dilla really were. I do enjoy it though, it's just a completely different practice to writing guitar based pop tunes.

I sequenced all of this using Cubase, but I'm hoping to dump all the samples on to my sp-303 for any live situations that may happen to arise in the future...
