Guys,

I am searching for a good spoken word sample. Something gritty, american accent, maybe a little bit political or something talking about the vibe of music.

Simlar to someone like Roland Clarke.

Does anyone know of any free samples that may fit this idea, or maybe there are some vocalists out there that would record something and have it relased on a leading deep house label.

Thanks alot peeps!

C :)

Or does anyone know where I can get some work by urban / street poets, that kind of vibe?

Hi Transendance,

You might want to check out our Vocal & Choir section. We have several spoken word packs that might fit your needs (Caucasian Male speaking & Urban Speaking Vocals). These are just short phrases though, not poems or any of that kind.

Feel free to download the demo loops and browse around a little.

Best regards,

Sebastiaan

Hey, thanks for the reply. Some very useful stuff there and I will definately keep that in mind for future projects.

I'm looking for some things a little longer for this one though :)

Speeches, Urban poems etc. Prefer it to be a black, american male voice.

Anyone?

Peace :)

Maybe try ccmixter... but those are all creative commons licenses, which may not be suitable if you're trying to sell your music.

Or maybe you could try something like http://librivox.org/. All the audiobooks there are in public domain.

Not sure if this is a joke or what, but it is absolutely not copyright free ha-ha.

yes it is.
Public persons, like politicians or news moderators have no "copyright" on their voice.

Politicians perhaps might be allowed, since they are paid for with the people's tax dollars (I am not sure, I've never looked into that specific thing since using some politician's voice is about the last thing I'd want to put in music ha-ha). But to say just go record voices off the tv, that is entirely different, you did not specify just government employee's voices.

the copyright problem is not with the voice but with the recording. and the TV channel will own the copyright to the recording, as a record label owns the copyright to their recordings. i'm pretty certain that even a recording of a public speech will be protected by copyright, not for the content but for the recording itself.

i suggest you "go and inform yourself before" ...getting so aggressive about such a small thing

That's good news. I record lots of phrases from internet-radios (News, documentations) but never dared to use them "in public".
