In the midst of it all, it had also become a fashion show. Guitar riffs and extra beats are added and the BPMs are made higher to alter the sound of the song. Due to these disagreements DJ Kay Gee decided to leave Naughty by Nature in late 2000.
Naughty by Nature is a Grammy Award-winning American hip hop trio from East Orange, New Jersey that at the time of its formation in 1989 consisted of Treach, Vin Rock, and the DJ Kay Gee. They are known for being one of the few rap acts who were able to balance success on the pop charts with hardcore rap credibility.
Always check the format of the song you want to sample. The MP3 format is not well-matched with most software and typically just transfer your sample to MP3.
Impeach The President (The Honey Drippers) – This seemed to be preferred mostly by everyone to sample it rather than remake it. This was not only famously used in hip hop, but also in R&B and other genres. Several hip hop songs have sampled this that include Mr. Loveman by Shaggy, Bitch by Meredith Brooks, and Janet Jackson’s That’s The Way Love Goes.
It’s one thing when a seasoned band like Dinosaur Jr. comes to the neighborhood for a one-of-a-kind show. It’s another thing when that seasoned band comes with a Q&A featuring a one-of-a-kind entertainer like Henry Rollins. Performing their re-issued album Bug in its entirety, the indie/alternative rock band will headline Variety Playhouse with OFF! – featuring Keith Morris of Black Flag – opening the show, as well as the Q&A hosted by actor/comedian/singer Henry Rollins of Black Flag.
The group’s M.O. is to take the free-wheeling party vibe of a DJ and push it to the next level by using organic instruments, innovative performance technology, and uncharted musical exploration.
The album also generated another hit a reworking of Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry called Everything’s Gonna be All Right the breakbeat track was also called Ghetto Bastard on some explicit releases That song detailed the experiences of Treach growing up in poverty and now rising up to live a better life. Powered by the success of that song and “O.P.P.”, their self titled album went platinum.
Later on I was able to get my hands on a Roland XP-60 Workstation and a Roland MV-8000 Sampler/Sequencer. Again this is physical hardware that you are able to play. The XP-60 had stock sounds but could you not add sounds. However, the MV-8000 which is a sampler/sequencer was able to add sounds and sample. This really opened the door for creativity being able to import new sounds and sample new things.
The Spring Massive at the Paradox is gonna be insane as will Starscape 2009. I am also headlining this huge three-day festival alongside DJ Swamp and like 50 others called Willy Wonka and the Bass Factory on June 19-21 in West Virginia, which I am sure will be an experience!
