“If God would have picked a sample, he would have picked this one.” -Vince Ticsay

Vince (@tictacthoughts) is one of the new additions to the roster. I stumbled upon his uStream last week and when he said the quote mentioned above, I couldn’t help but think of this. But at the end of God’s outstretched hand, he’d have this Bert Kaempfert record. Bert Kaempfert was a very accomplished orchestra leader and songwriter from Germany. Many of his pieces later became hit songs by other artists such as Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra. His music has been sampled by Jimi Hendrix, Barenaked Ladies, and now US.

FYI – If you ever find yourself in Miami during December, make sure to check out Art Basel. It was held this past weekend and it was DOPE! Its inspiring to see all those artists doing their thing. And there were a lot of music events going on. Also, had a chance to check our boy Evan Poirier who did three walls during the weekend ( I managed to throw something together earlier today after work… didn’t really get a chance to make a real “verse”… but I didn’t want to pass up on this sample. Anyways, I expect a couple more late submissions, so be sure to check back. peace, illa

  5. @1stup and @DJRobzilla thanks y’all.

    @hijrah welcome to WBS… definitely nice to have a female presence among the roster. and dope submission!

    loved this week… lots of variety. peace, illa

  6. Gee says:

  8. Blackph03nix says:

    WORD UP PM – This **** is so exciting. The fact that we are coming out with new flavours every week is great. Each sample brings a new challenge and with every session I feel like I have learned something.
    Going back to school!


  9. Blackph03nix says:

    Chrizo, killer stuff btw….

  10. Sideways says:

    I don’t know if I can speak for everyone from Gen iLL, but when the beat sessions were first invisioned, THIS is what I imagined it to grow into.

    14+ producers, flipping the same sample, making original beats that showcase their unique style…all just because they love making music…

    We do this for free or fee, you know?

    • Cosign. This indeed was the vision. and lets keep it going. two more producers were added yesterday. Yesterday was the most visits we had in one day. We’ve gone from an average of 500 hits/month during Jan-Sep. In October, it doubled to 1000/month. In Novemeber, it doubled again to 2000/month. And we’re on pace to exceed even that this month. I think they call that exponential growth homies.

      anyways, on behalf of Gen ILL, we seriously appreciate the weekly participation and everyone’s contribution to this project, which began as a simple gathering back in gainesville, FL.

  13. tictac says:

    well i just would like to reinforce my statement on the “if god picked a sample…”,
    i see a lot of you guys had some bumps from this sample,
    but you guys came through with some hard hitting joints!
    thanks for illa for giving me the pleasure of providing the sample for this week,
    unfortunately, i had a lot going on during the week that i ended up not finishing my submission. but i do however have finished my beat for next week’s session,
    and finally i’d be able to showcase what i have to offer.
    again, big shouts to all you beatmakers who murdered my sample haha

    • Gee says:

      Tictac..I was just looking through your blog and stumbled upon that post about the bus in Toronto…creepy shit, especially since I’m from Toronto myself lol. Where’d you find that story?

      • tictac says:

        oh, i just made that shit up haha
        ill be honest though, i scared the shit out of me when i took in
        that story. but yea.
        416 up in this!!!
