Hopefully you tuned into the 5/17 show if not, check it out here. It might have been all over the place but we had fun with BLAPorCRAP this time around. Like M31RK said, he would find a sample to flip for this week’s segment. Let’s see who has the best flip!
There’s not too many rules on this one except all submissions must use the sample. You can use whatever drums you want! (Buy a BLAP Kit if you don’t have dope drums)
Make sure your beat is labeled properly
ie: Producer Name - Beat Title
This isn’t a contest but you know how we do; It’s going to be competitive anyway.
The sample was provided by
Shawn Bernardo of Vinyle Archéologie: Crate Digging & Break Excavation.
Really dope group on Facebook. Check them out!

5/17 BLAP On The Radio was a little short staffed since !llmind and Stoni were in Miami for the iStandard Beat Camp. Luckily the homie Quest stepped up to help out with the hosting duties along with the great engineerMatt Weiss from Philly. M31RK decided to do an extended live BLAPorCRAP segment. We had a lot of fun critiquing beats from the inbox and interacting with the listeners from the chat room. Had 2 Pranks calls in the process. At the end M31RK suggested we should have a BLAPorCRAP Sample flip for the 5/24 show. Let’s see who has the best sample chops and creativity.
Look out for the sample on our Twitter and Blogs to download the sample and submit.

We are geeked to have Unkle Chip rock with us this Blapisode. He’s literally booked all the time but we got lucky this Friday. He’s definitely one of the most consistent DJ’s we go out to check for in NY. If you don’t know who he is, check him out at the More Than Enough Parties thrown at LPR every other Saturday and peep his mixes on his soundcloud.
Unkle Chip is hands down the most aesthetically inclined DJ we’ve listened to. On top of that, he’s a part of NY/NJ’s illest DJ Crew - The Elite Camp. His knowledge of overall music is shown in all of his sets. Unkle Chip bows down to no one and you end up changing your list of favorite songs in the process. Influential indeed by his very nature.
