LoveU live on the MPC Live

Playing my beat, “LoveU” live on the MPC Live. Been finding some beautiful records around town so I wanted to share one of the beats that grew from one of those records. The main samples in this tune are from a FIRST PRESSING of a vinyl gem from 1973. Don’t forget to hit the HD setting on the video

Field Recordings: Gravel Pit

Didn’t realize how profound these recordings would be at the time but I can’t stop using them in my beats these days. The sound of crunching and tumbling gravel has such nice character, discovered at a gravel pit while on vacation in Petoskey, MI.

Familiar Things

Out of appreciation for the fantastic vibes and anticipation for the new installment I grabbed the Stranger Things soundtrack on vinyl and chopped some of the main theme up for a boom bap style flip. The title is of course a play on the title of the show but also I was trying to incorporate that feeling during a psychedelic journey, when you’re pretty deep and seeing these important things around you and they seem familiar yet slightly distant in a way like they are of a slightly different reality.

Mega stoked to participate in this Beat Battle hosted by Slam Academy. Preliminary battles are going down every Sunday this month, with the final happening on 10/29. I’ll be completing my preliminary battle on 10/22 so that means lots of digging and arranging are in my forecast until that date. All info about this Beat Battle can be found here
