Flip The Tune 03 - Oktoberfest

Flip The Tune is an idea copied from Andrew Huang's youtube channel, where a few producers take a sample and make a song with it, making that sample the focal point of the song.

How To: Each producer can use all the loops they want to create the song and will have until the end of each month to do it or at least to show something based on it.
Everything from dubious software to official DAWs can be used, you can even steal samples from other songs, just not the whole thing, this is not mashup making, it's remixing and original creations only.

Duration: Work towards a track with at least 1m30s and don't worry about it being too long, can't put chackles on creativity!
Just no need to add a huge beat intro/ending (see examples for more info), we're not looking for extended mixes.

Posting of the songs: Everything works here, sowndhaus, soundcloud,, youtube, you name it, as long as one can listen to it.
Choose your song name and tag #flipthetune so we start to get noticed for that tag.

More info on the subject and examples from Andrew Huang in the discussion post (which probably be active every month to decide the next sample to be "flipped")
Here -

No entry fee which leads to no prizes awarded :lol: but we'll make good feedback on the production, track composition, sound quality and sound engineering.
**ETA: Sunday 26-Oct 23:59
OK so, who's in? **Please give feedback if you're going to do something for the project.

Third challenge is remixing, sample and create your own thing or whatever you want really with this sample:


  • Got all hyped up about this one and I can't understand why LOL

    My song info below.
    Style: Instrumental HipHop
    Ways the sample is used:

    • Acordeon sound;
    • Guitar notes;
    • Guitar chords;
    • Strings for the main melody.
      All made on Ableton Live with some built-in effects and also VST Plugins like Looperator, Reverse, HalfTime, Izotope Nectar 2, etc.
      Beats shown in the video how they were made.
      Some samples are my own creation from other samples.

    I got the time to make the song and the walk-through video all in a row ;)
    Here's the video with original sample, walk-through and song in the end:

    The audio will be competing in the Instrumental HipHop contest for SKIO so the download link will only be available (on bandcamp) after the contest has its winners, meanwhile show me some love on the contest page:
