Challenge Description

From the Metapop Competition page:
A kaleidoscopic mix of rumbling 808-style beats, technicolor synths, and wavy melodic chops, new Native Instruments Expansion PURE DRIPdelivers the secret sauce to take your beats to the Hot 100. PURE DRIP captures the blend of smouldering trap, visionary hip hop, and forward-thinking pop being pushed by a new generation of artists and producers defining the chart sound of today.

PURE DRIP was created with Grammy Award winning producer and writer Snipe Young, a leading light within the L.A. music scene. His collaborators include Nicki Minaj, The Game, Dr. Dre, Beyonce, and many more.
You could be crowned our latest #ProduceThis champion and win our Grand Prize including the latest Native Instruments pro gear and more.

Your challenge: Create a beat (under four minutes long) using at least ten of the handpicked samples from PURE DRIP. Then upload your entry and tell us which sounds you used. Let your imagination run wild. All genres and styles are welcome — and you can also add your own sounds, provided you own the copyright.

The Challenge:
To enter make a track using a one of Reverb.com's free-to-download sample packs of classic drum machines; in this case, the iconic TR-909.

For a limited time Reverb.com is offering their HUGE collection of classic Drum Machine samples for free download from here. All you have to do is create a Reverb.com account and download to your heart's content! These samples also come organised into an Ableton session and instruments, for people using Ableton.

Alternatively you can download the samples just for the TR-909 here from We Transfer.

Watch the video from Point Blank Music School above for a quick history on House Music and the TR-909 in particular.

Here's what we made!
