I'll keep this short and sweet as possible.
Was listening to "Let's Ride" (Q-Tip with production by J. Dilla). Knew the sample had to do with "Giant Steps" (the John Coltrane classic). Found the original sample that was a guitar performance of Joe Pass' cover of the same song. Took a few extra seconds of Joe (which was hard cuz he played extremely abstract, so had to chop some pieces and re-arrange to fit), sampled/slowed/and chopped the ORIGINAL original by Coltrane, took part of the instrumental of Dilla's beat (which I had to tune all the way to -50 then drop one tone down JUST to get it to the same key as the sample and original, which were both already in the same key) , and mashed it all up together for this 40-second piece of randomness I put together today, just to quench my imagination's thirst of what "Let's Ride" would sound like if I used the original "Giant Steps" to Dilla's beat.
Voila...if you like, you got 100 then it's gone.
SO MASH UP CONTENTS IN REVIEW:
John Coltrane - "Giant Steps" (original version sample)
Joe Pass - "Giant Steps" (guitar cover sample)
J Dilla - "Let's Ride" (instrumental beat sample)
Ahmed Sirour - random inspiration and editing/mixing to a :40 sec tease
