Props to Hector Valle for the find.
It's been two years since you last hear, now I reappear your heart pumps fear. No it's not Craig Mack, it's Confidence coming off a good hiatus to bring you another beat making video. This time Confidence has a specific message in mind. As he discusses in the video, don't be afraid to go after something that's already been sampled. As long as you're not looping the same part, get creative and take pieces of sounds that you're given to make a really strong foundation. The original producer must have had a good ear to pick out the same song that gravitated you to it, so dig deeper and find sounds that weren't used and get to work! Also pay attention as Confidence discusses his theory as to why DJ Premier started chopping samples to begin with.
If you like what you see and hear in the video, join Confidence on 11/1/14 as he launches the fifth session of "School of Confidence" an online virtual beat school where he interacts and teaches students all over the world. Visit www.schoolofconfidence.com and register today.
