Just came out with this one… New Orleans bounce samples.. The problem? Up until now, most bounce songs are based on copyrighted beats… So… If you wanna sell your track(s) (or if a mainstream bounce musician – typically from Louisiana or somewhere geographically close, already sold their tracks) – it’s a lot of money, depending on a lot of different factors involving copyright law. And I’m not the first to say it, and I KNOW I won’t be the last, but let me just make it clear: IMO, copyright law is a real bitch. Sure, an artist wants to get paid, but sampling something from fifty years ago SHOULD be acceptable. It’s usually not. Sampling something from 1991? 1992? 1993? Very illegal. Unless you clear the samples – but that’s half the problem – there are different TIERS of payment depending on how many units you want to sell. What the fuck. Can’t it just be, “If you’re getting rich, making millions, pay up, if not, well, give us 5%, or something,” ???
Well.. it’s not, unfortunately. And until Disney collapses (which won’t happen – and ESPECIALLY will never happen since they own Star Wars now) we’re going to have to deal with copyright. I’m ok with an artist making money, but some copyright laws are just fucking stupid… You gotta pay royalties on a song until 70 years AFTER the artist dies? Seriously? CALL ME CRAZY but that shit’s stupid. You’re great grand kids live off your music? Awww… fuck it. At least on bandcamp you can get away with pretty much anything.. Well, almost, unless you get snitched on, I suppose. (SHHH! Let’s keep it that way! It’s one of the last bastions! Especially since soundcloud is getting fucky.)
If you want any kind of info, go to Wikipedia and look up copyright law… then look up copyright law in context of clearing samples from your music… It varies from country to country with copyright law, making it REALLLLLLY ridculous…
Why am I ranting about all this shit??? Here’s why – New Orelans bounce samples. NOW, FREE OF COPYRIGHT. That’s fucking right. Sample to your heart’s fucking delight. Make them bounce tracks!!! Make sissy bounce! Make hardcore footwork bounce! Make death-bounce! …. (…..”death bounce” is not a real genre… but… hmm… it COULD be… anyone here makes a “death bounce song, I promise to post it… unless it’s snuff, or something..)
Anyway, enough of my bullshit rant about legal shit, here’s that preview I promised:
(And yes, the visuals are slightly pixelated.. the beats and loops? golden…and on sale)
ALSO: if you liked that, or are curious about it, there’s a sale on this bounce pack. I predicted bounce and twerkin’ trax would blow up years ago, and it turns out, I was right. I kept my ear to the streets better than DRE (who kept his ears to his interns, who likely “discovered,” Snoop and Eminem… But anyway. This isn’t about my rant about Dr. Dre being a fake-ass “perfectionist,” that takes 1,000 years to produce a dozen or whatever tracks… this is ABOUT THAT BOUNCE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here’s some info on the FULL pack. Samples ALL royalty-free and golden. Longer loops, too. 100-200 bpm, and 19 seconds long, WAV format, perfectly and seemlessly loopable..
SEEEECREEEET DISCOUNT: Type StrangeFlow50 in the “voucher” tab on the sell page to get a fucking LARRRRGE discount. Probably too large, honestly… And if it doesn’t work… Take out the caps… Maybe it’s “Strangflow50” or just “strangeflow50” … But… it should work.
Anyway! There y’all go!
A lot of good samples in that pack. I don’t wanna toot my own horn but… uh.. *toot* …
Again, that link for the samples in full : Heeere!
Happy mixin’ !!!!
