Recently, Stephens has dived into the world of sample-making. He has been releasing sample packs every month for other producers to use. I have had the opportunity to work with them and have never heard samples like those before. His melodies are different from the average trap loops made today because he uses different, eerie sounds to make something special. Follow Blaine Stephens on Instagram
