How To Pick The Right Beats! A Rapper's Guide to Hot Instrumentals

For any up and coming hip-hop artist, there are two what exactly you need to make sure you have: mic skills and hot beats. To some degree, beats are the most essential thing you need, because often times, people won't even care what you really are talking about if your beats aren't hot! I'm certain you know some rappers who get a lot of attention with limited skills given that  they get crazy beats, therefore it makes it that much more important when you're able to really spit.

Selecting the most appropriate type of instrumental for the song is also really important. There are all kinds of groups of beats to choose from at the same time. Old school, dirty south, new england, west coast, trap, electronic plus more are out there from which to choose. so make sure you select a style that works for you.

Colonial beats tend to have very compressed, "dirty" drums, lower tempos, 85-100 BPM approximately and may incorporate pianos and strings. These types of beats also frequently use samples of other music to flesh the track.

West Coast beats frequently have very clean drums, a lot of guitar sounds are available, and very often the track has portions of funk music. The drums might be programmed to 'swing' and the basslines often roll such as traditional funk music.

Dirty South/Trap Beats have become popular now and so they usually don't use any samples in any respect, done all through keyboards, drum machines. These tracks have very precise drums with extra focus on 32nd and 64 note hi-hat sounds to accent the beat. These beats will use very 'epic' sounding brass and string keyboard patches to produce a wall of sound.

Also popular today is adopting techniques from European dance music. Rappers like Flo-Rida, Pitbull and others can be heard rapping over track with heavy inspiration from House, Trance, Electro,Techno and also other dance music styles to focus on audiences in a club setting. These beats feature numerous of bright, synthesizer lead sounds and usually a relentless 4/4 beat driving the songs the whole time.

Your music won't sound real if you utilize beats that match. Think about your audience, do you wish to appeal to the clubs? This wouldn't really be the better choice to pick a down tempo, Pete Rock or RZA type beat which has a tempo less than 110-120 bpm (BPM). On the other hand, if you need to appeal to the 'conscious' audience, it may not be the best plan to look for a 130 BPM will.i.am/Rick Ross sounding beat either. Ultimately, it's your choice though, to do what you may feel will help your music the best.

Of course, since internet is everywhere, it could be much easier to download instrumental music rather than try to find a beat maker locally who can do a great job and make the beat exclusively for you. Unfortunately, talent isn't distributed evenly across the world, so if you live in, say, Iowa it's not as likely that you will find the tracks you desire near you, no matter how talented you're. If you are looking for hit beats to operate a vehicle your career as an artist forward, hanging out finding a good place to get beats online is a better option. You should check to see the variety of beats they've, and definitely investigate as to whether or not they can customize beats just for you.
