Better Is One Day Remix Darwin Hobbs Sample Flip Beat by TaurusBeats aka Taurus M. James

Moody Instrumental Music by Taurus M. James Sampled Music, Remixes and Cover Songs

"Better" is a sampled hip-hop beat that I created after listening to "Better Is One Day" by Darwin Hobbs. I had been listening to "Better Is One Day" for years. It is a great track to worship to. The beautiful musicianship really comes through and that is what I wanted to highlight in my track.

Is this a REMIX?

re·mix

verb - rēˈmiks/ - mix (something) again.

noun - ˈrēmiks/ - a different version of a musical recording produced by remixing.

I love to make beats with Propellerhead Reason 6. I also enjoy making videos that show how I make beats and Moody instruMental Music. The videos are my way of sharing my experiences and discoveries in my music-making journey.

How To Chop Samples with ReCycle

When I make Hip-Hop beats using Propellerhead Reason, I use Propellerhead ReCycle to "chop" the samples. Here is a question I got from one of my YouTube subscribers about chopping samples in ReCycle and creating bass sounds in Reason.

How to Make Beats Wrapping the Samples in Sample Flip Beats Remixes

When I make Moody Instrumental Music, sometimes I "sample" or use parts from an existing song or musical piece. My goal in sampling is to take parts from a piece that I love and build a completely different musical piece that leaves the listener saying, "WOW, you got that result from those sampled pieces?!"

The way I do this is by "wrapping" (not rapping) the sample with my own instrumentation. I create different musical patterns with the sampled pieces (called "flipping the sample"). While I flip the samples, I can hear (in my head) all of the instrumentation that I want to wrap the sample pieces in. When i finish the sample flip patterns, I go back and create the instrumentation that I heard (in my head).

In this video, watch how I make a sample flip beat and instrumental music using Propellerhead's Reason software, the Akai MPD32 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard. This video takes you into my thought process about sampling, "chopping and flipping" samples, and I give you tips on how to make music.

This video catches me on one of my "happier" days, in which my overall "moody-ness" level was low. Plus, I had just finished downing a can of Mountain Dew. So, I'm a bit more animated in this video.

"Love Avalanche" is a sampled hip-hop beat that I created after listening to "Like An Avalanche" by Hillsong United. It is a great worship track and I wanted to highlight the moodiness of the original in my track.

I use Propellerhead Reason, Propellerhead ReCycle, Sony Soundforge and many other music production tools.

In this video, I show a little about how I take samples from an existing song and then rearrange ("flip") the samples into different patterns before "wrapping" the flipped sample patterns with various instrumentation I perform.
