InTheRainFlips Ep – A1

What It Sound Like? 

Tonight is about production. The lady who produced me, celebrates her birthday today. Without her, I wouldn't be here. I don't think it  is coincidence that tonight's selection has no emcee, solely a producer. Residing in Arizona by way of South Africa. Yes, that makes him African-American, literally speaking. Our homie, A1 stepped outside the box with this one.

He succeeded where I failed miserably when I tried my hand at beats. He took alternate conclusions beyond expectation. The ability to get so many variations out of a single sound is priceless. So, he sampled In The Rain, by The Dramatics and got four different versions. I can't say that I've seen this done on a public scale. The beauty of the underground, artists are recognized for creativity.

The song itself is a very popular classic. My family used  to play it a lot when I was a kid. It has even been used by other producers. A1 still  manages  to  manipulate  the sounds further. Notice  multiple tempo,  timing plus time  lengths,  as well  as loops,  and break  points. Hip Hop heads  will  be  impressed by  the efforts  without  drums. Hard  to choose  a favorite, I would  most likely rhyme on the second track, though. 

This four pack of Flips is relaxing. The kind of week some of have been having, we need the relief. He even joins the crew for the picture in his variant cover art. Slide  to Bandcamp and get your copy. Follow and share the work of this Black Hand Music Group artist. Pardon me fam, this post was  for last  night. There was a site  issue. Thankfully,  everything is back up  and  running. Also  grateful  for  your  loyalty.  Jah bless all of  you!
