DJ DN3 “The Campaign EP” Feat Drum Samples From The Drum Broker

17 Nov

Soulful hip-hop music is a way of life for DJ DN3 and the crew. He’s been holding it down as a deejay and producer from Philadelphia to California. He won first place in the Emcee Nemesis “All I Need” remix contest. Blessing us with mixes like The Milkbone Show mx01 and Sunshined The #@$% Out summer mix. DJ DN3 has been putting in work! His latest project features Drum Sample Kits from Big Noise MPC.

“My fellow Americans (and the rest of you earthlings)… Rap cats, (Mr. Miranda, Mouse Powell, and Mega Ran, and myself) recently embarked on a tour to campaign for your ears. On this campaign, I took the opportunity to create some music and ideas that would be formulated to this short EP while I was on the road. I’d like to send a very big shout out to Noiseman at Big Noise for hooking me up! Big Noise MPC (Drum Broker Affiliate) is where I coped the drum kits used to create this project’s soulful and grimy sound. All joints were produced using the very portable Native Instrument’s Maschine Mikro”.

The Music: Each beat that I composed used drum elements of Alkota’s Gems From The Crates, Illmind’s Blap-Kit Volume 1 and M-Phazes’ Dirty 30 Drum Library. I have an old soul sample library that I keep on my traveling external hard drive. This way I can come up with things on the go to complement any other plug-in VST instrument sounds I have on my laptop. Each day we were on tour, I composed a beat whenever I had the downtime to do so. Then out of all of the beats I composed, Mega Ran, Mr. Miranda, and Mouse Powell took a pick on what they wanted to write to. They all recorded the tracks after we got back from tour.

We would like to thank all those who came out to support us and The Campaign Tour, which spanned up and down the west coast. Stay tuned for our next campaign. This a free gift to all so… Enjoy ~ DJ DN³

Drum Sample Torrents

1 Sep

I was scouring the good ole Future Producers forums earlier today when I came accross an interesting thread. The title was, “How many of you actually buy and use sample kits & loop packs?”

The topic is interesting to me for a few reasons.

  • A) I own and run a sound design/drum sample website
  • B) I make beats and produce music professionally.

Since my earliest days of making beats I have always supported the drum sample business by buying commercial drum kits, one of my favorite sites is banginbeats.com. I have spent hundreds thousands of dollars on dope sounds. I also sample my own drums, chop my own libraries, and design my own drums. I find creating drum sounds fullfilling and I have a passion for sound design, however, when I first started producing music I lacked the skills and knowledge required to make dope drum sounds, and thus turned to various commercial libraries. There are advantages of using drum packs are… less time digging… more time making beats. And of course, if you get your drums from the right people… less time tweaking & mixing.

Back to the topic at hand… some members of the Future Producer’s forums are appalled that people actually pay for drum samples. Why pay? When you can dig for your own sounds? Why pay when you can download the torrent? Its no secret that piracy is rampant in all facets of the music industry including the sound design business. Yes, there is alot of bullshit out there as far as drum libraries. I won’t and don’t need to name names, I think most online consumers and shoppers “Sketch Radar” starts ringing on some of these sites. But there are also some really dope sound design companies and individuals with amazing drum sounds. By paying and supporting these small, unique, niche companies you are ensuring that a fresh crop of high quality drum sounds, sample libraries, etc. are available for you to do what you do best… CREATE! The drum sample torrents floating around are chalked full of viruses and half the time they aren’t the “Official” drum sounds. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather spend my time working, creating, and making music instead of chasing knock off drum torrents.

My 2 cents

Exclusive Interview: Stompboxx Music talking Reason 6.5, SoundClick Grinding, Mixing, & DIY Marketing/Branding

20 Jun

1. Take a second to introduce yourself to the readers who may not be familiar with Stompboxx Music.

First of all, thank you for the opportunity fam!  Stompboxx Music Group, LLC is basically myself (msimp) & SharpSoundz.  We met somewhere around ’04 while both playing in a local church together in Abilene, TX.  On the side, both of us made tracks and were always throwing around techniques and ideas together so teaming up just made sense.  We officially launched the production team Stompboxx Music in 2010. It’s been a nice ride these last 2 yrs.  We’ve had the opportunity to work & build with some artists both label-affiliated and indie; Crooked I, Kurupt, Mr. Dubie, Willie Northpole (DTP) from a label standpoint.  Also, an incredible amount of Indie talent such as Roosh Williams, Knesecary, Tory Lanez, Killa Kyleon, Doughbeezy, Add+, and a pleauthra of others.  We don’t like to name-drop.  Our motto is less talking, more beats.  -msimp

(Sharp) Thanks Alkota for this opportunity, Mike and I have been doing music together for a long time now.   I can say he’s the only producer that I’ve ever worked with this closely.  There were opportunities here and there to work with other producers, but never any real musical chemistry.  Mike and I feed off each other’s creativity, from creating beats to creating the name for our brand, Stompboxx Music.  Just for the record, Mike is the calm, collect chill one, I’m the talkative, say-what’s-on-my-mind, crazy one.   However,  we definitely balance each other out musically and we remain professional.  Not only do we call ourselves production/business partners, I can honestly say that he’s one of my closet friends in the world.  Production duo’s normally don’t last too long, but we’ve managed to keep going by doing one thing, and that’s being honest with each other when it involves potential business moves, beat critiques, or a simple “I didn’t like what you said about my beat”.  Mike mentioned a few indies we’ve worked with, we’ve also worked with Grammy-Nominated writer Jeff Nortey, Young-X with Midsouth Music and Tawn P.

Alkota: I frequently see questions from up and coming producers (beatmakers) on various production forums (futureproducers.com, illmuzik.com, gearslutz.com, etc.) that want to know if having a Soundclick Page is worth the time, money, and effort to promote and sell their beats. We’ve all heard the success stories and I personally know producers who do well selling beats on Soundclick. That being said, Stompboxx Music has an exceptional Soundclick Page and presence.
