Beat Breakdown: Hip Happening by The Symphony

What’s going on guys?

Symphony here for, and
today, we’re doing a beat breakdown utilizing

one of the samples from my I’m Operablem sample
pack, which features Shayna Von Otter, and

is engineered by Matthew Weiss.

So a little background, if you guys don’t
know who I am, my name is Samik.

A lot of people in the music business call
me Symphony.

I’m a producer, DJ, song writer, and sound
designer, and recently, in the last several

months, I’ve put out sample packs, Prism Sound
Collection, I’m Operablem, and the most recent

one, which is Structures.

The reason I did this, a lot of times I’ll
come up with ideas and won’t finish them.

I’ll give them to friends to finish, just
because my schedule is a little crazy.

One day I said, you know, why not?

We’re just going to give these to everybody
and see what they can do with it.

So this one, I decided to use an Opera singer,
because I didn’t think there were any sample

packs that utilized Opera in the way that
I would do it.

This is what this sounds like, this is called
the Hip Happening 4, it’s from I’m Operablem,

and check it out!

[sample, Hip Happening 4]

Cool shit, right?

What I did was I used this sample, and I’ll
play that for you guys, this is what that

sounds like.


So that’s the beat that I created utilizing
the Hip Happening 4 sample.

The cool thing about I’m Operablem and Structures,
I included the wet and dry stems, so you have

access to all of that stuff.

You can manipulate any part of the sample
that you’d like, and on this one in particular,

I used a few of those things.

This beginning utilizes the 2-track, and I
did this cool little almost gated type of

effect on the actual sample.

[gated sample]

Then I added Shayna’s — this little vocal
manipulation I did.

[sample, pitch adjusted]

I think that’s using just a clipping of one
of her vocals in the sample pack.

So one of the things that I like doing, when
I’m working with samples, is I like side-chaining

the sample to the kick.

What this does is basically every time the
kick hits, the sample ducks underneath it,

and what you accomplish is gluing the sample
to the record a little bit better.


Everything is a little bit more cohesive.

So one of the things I like doing is stutter

A lot of times in samples, a four bar, eight
bar loop gets boring.

I want to keep it a little exciting.

It adds a little bit more excitement to the
actual samples.

I’ll take the extra step, this is what that
sound like.

[sample, stutter edited]

Take it one step further, you can do that
with all of the drums, bassline, 808, it gives

it more of an “oh shit” moment.


We might give the artist, or the rapper, or
whoever an idea to do something with that

part of the song.

Most people’s take away from that moment is
like, “Oh shit.”

So that was the beat breakdown of Hip Happening
from my I’m Operablem sample pack, feature

Shayna Von Otter and engineered by Matthew
Weiss, and you can get that on,

or you can get it from, or
you can get it from

I hope these samples inspire you to create
some crazy shit, and I’d love to hear it all,

so if you want to send them to me or if you
even want to just chat about anything, just

hit me up., bausymphony on all
social media, and yeah.

Hope you guys have a great time creating.

See ya.
