Move Up - Drum Edit


Something revived from an old neglected session, the chops got kind of out there originally but I stripped it back to a drum edit to preserve the song structure. Not something to play out but some may enjoy this for what it is.

Skip To My Lou


I generally get irked when the beginning of a track has some good drums at the top but they're faded in! In this case as a remedy I messed with the amplitude of the loudest hits, making a little 4 bar intro with a snare at the jump.

If You Get Jammed Up Don't Mention My Name


Hot off the press, stumbled across this idea messing around yesterday and could not resist.

Afternoon Delight


Every once and a while you come across an 80's jazz track that really shimmers - here's an amazing one from 1986. Very affordable Groove Merchant find.

They Can't Wait To Dub It

Happy Birthday to one of the best to ever do it. I seriously wish more people realized how incredible a rapper Mac Dre was. I'm talking top 10 GOAT. Rest in peace.

Here's 3 MD related edits I've made in the past.

In-tune edit of Zapp's "Be Alright" with a nor-cali anthem:

It's Rainin' Game (alright remix)

Unfortunately there was never an instrumental of "Feelin' Myself" and it's impossible to loop the beat clean from the vocal versions, but with a lil' elbow grease I was able to manage a cool dub/instro version complete with a bridge for blends, transitions, etc.
