Bio: I’m a beatmaker/engineer from the Netherlands. I started out makin’ beats in the nineties. Mainly hip hop. I’v been a fan of Roy Ayers for years and have made several tracks based on samples from his records. My artist name is Biggems or Biggs for short.
The pic i send was taken in Accra Ghana (DITC). i’m the white dude in the middle 😉
About the beat:
For this beat I sampled Rick Holmes- Remember to Remember. I think it has that typical Roy Ayers chord progression and signature sound goin’ on and in this case i flipped it not too heavily, so the original is still highly recognizable. It was meant as a hip hop instrumental for an emcee.
Side Note: This beat is sampled from vinyl only @ 24 bit/48K resolution and made in Ableton Live on a Macbook Pro. I strictly use wav-files for beatproduction. Other equipment i used is a technics sl 1200, a Ecler Mixer and a Mackie Onyx Blackjack interface. Although mixed in the Box (digital), i’ve tried to keep a raw, warm analog sound to it, cause i feel hip hop shouldn’t sound too clean ;-).
