::: Volume 1 :::


Ominous 015 - Afu Ra ::: 015a ::: 015b ::: 015c ::: 015d
This is one of my favorite artists. I was lucky enough to come across an acapella of his and I had to try and flip it. I ened up with a couple of different versions because I really wanted to pump something out that was as good as the original but at the time my skills and sound sets were hella limited. I even tryed to use a beat I created on my PSP using the Traxx Pad program. Here is what I came up with...


Ominous 014 - Mos Def ::: 014
Thie mighty Mos Def. One of the most talented brothas to ever grace the mic. Another acapella I was lucky enough to come across. This was from one of my favorite albums, DJ Honda's II, and this song, Travelin' Man was my favorite track. The acapella was the remixed version. I wanted to try a couple of different versions of this track but I got frustrated because I don't know how to make beats to compliment people singing. So I just used the best version I had.


Ominous 013 - Rakim ::: 013a ::: 013b ::: MOV
The "R". What can you say about the legend? I hesitated remixing anything by him because you have to come correct when you touch Rakim's stuff. Version A was a beat I did a while back ago and I just put the vocals over it but Version B was from scratch. I liked version A a lot better because I really liked the sample I used which came from Taste of Honey. One of the records my Pops gave me when he forked over his record collection. They have some great music. You should try and get


Ominous 012 - Rakim ::: 012a ::: 012b
I had a hard time with this remix because there is a heavy Bass drop mixed in the with vocals so you are have to deal with that when you remix it.


Ominous 011 - Das EFX ::: 011a ::: 011b ::: MOV
My favorite rap dup of all time. They Want EFX was the first song I ever destroyed. I played that tape until it snapped. I experimented with 2 versions. Just messing around.

Ominous 002 - Mobb Deep ::: 003 ::: 002
There is probably an unwritten rule somewhere that says you don't remix tracks by Havoc. These are two reasons why. You can't improve perfection. But I am trying to learn from the best so I follow in their foot steps. Havoc is one of the sickest producers out to me because he has a true sampler's style. In other words, he lets the sampe dictate what he will do. I on the other hand tend to do the same thing with different samples.


Ominous 001 - Jin ::: 001
My very first remix. The one I am the most proud of. Sure, at the time, I didn't know shit about producing. I still don't really. But I am light years ahead of where I was when I did this remix. The reason why I am so proud of this remix is because it was intentional. See most of my remixes are experimental. I am just trying different things. But this remix was born before I ever touched a beat machine or computer. The first time I watched Ghost in the Shell and I heard the soundtrack playing in the movie... the first thing I thought was... damn some one should make a beat out of this. And that is what made me start producing. You can't sit around waiting for Primo or Pete Rock to do everything.
