Louis Den Beat Cypher vs Paul McCartney “Wonderful Christmastime”

January 17, 2009

Five UK producers and beatmakers gather together to show their skills and do their best to improve upon a sample of Paul McCartney’s "Wonderful Christmastime."  In the tradition of Beat Society, producers play beats straight from the equipment from which they were made.

This looked like a lot of fun to do. All kinds of people sampling from one song and having a good time. We need more of these events in america. Too many beat battles and not enough “Sample Improvement Parties”, as i would call them. cause im sure its a blast to do one of these.

aah, Original is still the Best!

I love when beat cyphers go off like this one. One sample, different styles, different machines, different productions. I always know I’m listening to heat anytime the UK throw down, I hope that the US has a beat battle like this somewhere down the line.
Cheers, y’all!
