Kicked Off Of Soundcloud...

well now this is some bullshit right here.. for the third time i get this nasty email from soundcloud telling me i am improperly using copyright protected material.  for the record this remix was done with a store-bought $.99 acapella from amazon.com

if you have a company that sells an acapella version of a song and you are not allowed to use it to do a remix then wtf is going on here.  do they think people are buying acapellas to actually sit there and listen to them naked?

there is obviously some kind of misunderstanding here between the record companies, the soundcloud management and their customers.  the whole point of soundcloud is to let people post their stuff, NOT A PROMO MACHINE FOR THE BIG BUSINESSES THAT ALREADY DON'T NEED SOUNDCLOUD.

messin' with Adobe Illustrator CC2015

trying out the new version of illustrator.. using the curvature tool to create some shapes and then using the new shape-builder tool to combine/add/subtract shapes to make new ones. also using some of the new alignment features. pretty cool what you can do in a short amount of time. love the look of that program.

Mike Nice mixtape "Care for a Sample"

dope new mixtape by my man mike nice called "care for a sample" ...  curated to seamlessly incorporate the hip hop beats/lyrics with the samples that they hooked up.



Rihanna "Bitch Better Have My Money" (dj Jesster Fazeo Remix)

rihanna remix..  i love BBHMM.  about time i did a remix.  was feelin' kinda mellow on a flight from ATL to LGA and put this together.  i do some of my most focused work on a plane, i guess it's 'cause you don't have much else to distract you from the beat.

always loved "ridin' high" by faze-o.. inspired by the NWA song "always into something" and the EPMD song "please listen to my demo"  love the bassline and the high pitched synth sound and how they work together.

soundcloud's been a little weird lately with putting remixes up.. i got a message from them saying a remix of "happy" i did was in violation of some copyright protection thingey blah blah so they removed my remix and i now have "one strike" .... we'll see if they have beef w a rihanna remix.  there are so many remixes of this song already on soundcloud i don't see it being an issue.. but really what would be so bad about two strikes, i mean, i pay for this.

hope you enjoy.
