Rockbreaks 2: Jumpin’ Jack Flash

The 2nd in the “Rockbreaks” series came very quickly and easily to me after creating the first one.  This time, I used a more straightforward, clubby break with Peter Frampton’s live recording of “Jumpin Jack Flash”. Both this, and Rockbreaks 1 I tried not to complicate too much, so yes, it is loopy at times.

However, same rule as the last post applies:  Any MC who wants to drop science over these beats, pop them to me and I’ll post them.  The challenge has been issued.

Rockbreaks 1: Takin’ a Ride

A while back I came up with a concept for a couple of tracks called “Rockbreaks”.  These were hip hop beats mixed with classic rock.  I came up with a couple of them, one of which I present to you now:

The sample is “Takin’ a Ride” by Don Felder from the Heavy Metal soundtrack.

There’s no lyrics so far – I’m no vocalist, but if some MC out there surprised me with a re-recording of this in my SoundCloud dropbox, i’d surely post it!
