Noggin – Beautiful Day

Part 1

Title: Beautiful Day
Artist: Noggin
Album: Buzz Exports
Release Date: 2003

This is a beat that I used to scratch a Robin Williams record over…”it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood”.
Coincidentally, all the drums in this are scratched live from a record, then sampled to create the beat. By that I mean they come from a record that had Kick and Snare sounds very close together (*boom bap*), and I played the beat by scratching and cutting with the crossfader, drumming out a beat live from those two sounds. The hi-hats were then overdubbed in a similar fashion (cut/cut/cut/cut).
Produced in Buzz.
