The 6th Full-length album “Melt”

Produced by Michael Nhat

This is my last Vintage Rap album. I just released three in a row including Swimming to Cambodia. These beats were made in Clinton, Iowa 2006-2007 while visiting my adopted family. They are my top shelf selections. I have been wasting time sitting on them for years waiting to release them because I’m told it’s all about timing. Well, I realized I have a lot of beats. I need to stop wasting my time recording to beats that I think are okay, but someone else out there will love the beats and I should just record what I love. “Melt” to me is the best of the Vintage Rap albums, I have given it some of my most personal lyrics. Unfortunately, no label picked it up and I can not give it the financial push it deserves; but I don’t want to wait around because I have too many recordings waiting to go public and I’m not getting younger. So, I self-released it. I promise with every order I will send more than what you order, so if you have time, give it a listen below on my Bandcamp.

How to Flip the Gummo Sample

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVtZ9g41mQM

I saw the movie Gummo by Harmony Korine in 1999. I was living on my friends couch in the living room in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I remember liking it at once. I saw Kids when it first came out and liked it also, but Gummo blew it out the water for me.
In 2001 I sampled Gummo’s cowboy kids cussing at the rabbit for a song that doesn’t exist anymore. Then in 2004 I sampled the sounds in the film arriving with “Don’t Forget to Water the Radio”. A demo was recorded, then in 2010 I re-recorded the song with the same exact Gummo Sampled beat and hook, but changed the lyrics slightly. Since 2004 my songwriting became a little less enigmatic. The song was put on my 2nd album “Swimming to Cambodia”.

In 2001 I sampled Gummo’s cowboy kids cussing at the rabbit for a song that doesn’t exist anymore. Then in 2004 I sampled the sounds in the film arriving with “Don’t Forget to Water the Radio”. Everything from the percussion to the ambiguous metal and feedback was made with Gummo samples.

PS: The title of this post implies there’s only one way to sample aka flip the Gummo sample, but that’s not true at all. Everyone has their own techniques, equipment, ear, style, etc.
