Hey! I did a new Good Grief beat tape this week in my free time in between projects. It’s just a nice little fun instrumental release so I could try out some new methods of sampling and have a laugh.
I’ve sampled a bunch of Disney stuff, some Joanna Newsom again, even the Friends theme because Pamela asked me to try and I’m never one to turn down a challenge. That one was so stupid and so fun.
I think I like Your Own Vision the most. Perhaps because it’s the most recent one I’ve done or perhaps because I do think it’s the best. I couldn’t let the day go by without chopping and flipping the winning Eurovision number so that’s what that track is.
I just love being a messer with sampling. Forever a student.
You can listen on soundcloud and download it for free on Bandcamp You’ll get that ugly ass cover and all.
When I first arrived in Norway, I was living with almost no sun at all. In fact I was here for one week exactly before I saw the sun at all and let me tell you, that one minute of sun was a glorious encounter.
Now, months later it’s near the opposite. It doesn’t get properly dark anymore.
The darkest it gets is at 3am it seems and even still it’s not actually dark and you can see the light in the horizon with ease. By 4am it feels like the middle of any Irish day and by 5am it’s what we’d consider a nice Irish day.
It’s currently 25 degrees Celsius. So many thumbs up.
Yo. Here’s a new track/project that I might do more of or might not.
I told somebody I’d make some Juke today, so I did.
Play it in your big speakers or your good headphones but don’t play it at all in your laptop speakers. The samples should be easy to suss and were fun to cut.
As I said on Facebook earlier:
The Office, rest easy my pal.
Thanks for 9 seasons of near consistent mediocrity yet often times dipping into palpable genius. Many a mug of tea has been relayed down the gullet with you as my company.
Choosing to watch you, again and again has been giving and easy. A top notch venture and one I’m sure I will take again. Dunder Mifflin, yih little sound fucker yih.
It’s been real.
