The Dirty Sample - Headless (single)


“Headless” is the third single from The Dirty Sample’s upcoming instrumental album, Beats to Murder Rappers to, fittingly set for release on Halloween weekend. An ode to the storytelling of horror maestro Vincent Price, “Headless” finds inspiration in his retelling of Washington Irving’s classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, with the Calgary, AB producer incorporating a horse’s gallop as percussion alongside the bass drum and short snare drum loop. The high end is a bit of cymbal, triangle, and a nearly constant high-pitched tone. Further atmosphere is added with wind effects and a horse’s neighing. It’s a haunting horrorcore beat well-suited to the start of October. One would be wise to take heed of “Headless”.
