beachside

While choppping the sample up and playing along to a bouncy hip hop beat, this song made me think of a beachball, so it starts with the sound of a dive in to a pool! I love mixing field recordings and other elements like talking or a textured sound into the mix, I think it adds more to the song to make it similar to a film soundtrack.

I have had this beat sitting around for a few weeks. I normally just trash the idea if it doesn't work straight aways, but with this sample in particular, I knew there were some cool elements to make into a banger!
