Can U Dig It? w/ Doc Verbz (episode 6)

We all, at some point in our lives, have tried to please others and live up to society’s expectations. You see it all the time in social media, within family /friends and in the workplace. I say it’s a lot easier in doing your own thing. – Be what you are!

This week’s episode focuses on what I refer to as the “CHOP”! I find it too easy to sample a loop, add drums and bass line and then be finished. My favorite technique involves dissecting the song into bits and pieces and turn it to a new creation.

I found this record at Edward McKay’s in Raleigh, NC on Capital Blvd. Daryl Hall & John Oates’ (also known as Hall & Oates) 1976 album Bigger Than Both of Us is a masterpiece. Epecially the song “Do What You Want, Be What You Are”.
