BB124- Mud Person


#1

It’s post pandemic, shows are happening again. You receive an invitation to perform at a small outdoor rave. " Play something muddy" they say. You forget to follow through with inquiries because you thought it was a jab at your mixing skills and now you’re texting all your friends to ask them if your mixes are clean.

You arrive at the designated spot with your trusty sampler and are promtly splashed with buckets of mud and uploaded to a promotional insta story. It’s the annual mud rave of Chestermere, Alberta, Canada. Now your sampler hardly works and the parts that do, sound horrible. You still have to play something for these filthy fiends, good luck!

I’ve got them dirty samples for y’all, I’m taking no constructive feedback on them at this time.

Samples: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hvrDerVjfFk5q75jafr-1LwvciYDsz-_?usp=sharing

Rules:

  1. Get Abrasive: Have at least a small section in your track that indulges in harsher qualities like noise, distortion etc.

  2. Splash Around: Employ some instances of wild, off the cuff automation, the weirder the better.

  3. Don’t Get Stuck: Keep the variation coming/going

You can use a recording of your own voice.

Submissions due: February 16th 6:30pm PST

Beat Battle General Rules:

Beat Battles take place over the course of two weeks. The first ten days users will have to arrange, upload, and post their track to this forum. After this, the next three days users cast their votes for their favorite track. At the end of this, the winner will be announced, and they will then become the next Beat Battle host, and will have one day to construct a battle pack and begin the next Beat Battle.

Unless otherwise stated, the only sample/audio sources you may use for your song must come from the battle pack.

In the event of a tie, the battle host will decide the winner

**** in the event of winning the battle, the winner of the beat battle will be asked to make their track available for archive and also to hold onto to the project file of said “winning” track for in the event that it is to be considered for a best of the beat battles release ****

#5

Sounds fun! I started on something for this one, hopefully I finish it soon.


#6

#7

#8

Sorry, looks like I am not going to be able to submit something for this one - made some progress on a couple tracks for QAWM, but that’s eaten up all my spare time.

I’ll probably be getting back into the bbs once QAWM is wrapped.

Here she is

It took me longer to post this because it’s actually my second try at this. The first one did not age well; after a few listens I thought I should probably keep it in the shadows.

This one though was a lot of fun to make, this is actually my first attempt at making something based on a restricted set of rules, using only the provided source material and also staying within a theme (rave and mud). I went for something techno-ish since it’s a rave and the people need to dance. And created a bunch of crushed basses to simulate some mud-filled speakers. Also I tried to stay away from conventional arrangements since my sampler is supposedly all jacked up and what not.
This is my first entry to the forum in general, so be nice xD

Here’s my modest contribution, also techno:

Nice track @L0rdAuch! I love all the theme specific attention to detail and the rough but inobnoxious timbres. It could make for a cool intro track to a techno set at an outdoor rave for sure. Great balance between variety and consistency.

Since yours is the only official submission withing the timeframe, I pronounce you the winner! Looking forward to your installment.


#11

Thanks for the kind words. I quite like your track as well. The kick is very clean and feels just right with the other elements. The dirty bass at the ending is lotsa fun and the overall structure is spot on.

Also, Yaay, for winning, even though by forfeit, but I’ll take it. I just hope I didn’t join the forum within a hibernation phase.

For my upcoming installment, I will do a quick recap of previous BB posts so that I avoid repeating a subject matter and also to get familiar with the formula.

I’m not gonna lie, things aren’t super active around here these days, but hope you stick around! At the very least the BB’s always seem to chug along.


#13

Considering the excellent quality of productions coming from the members here, I think a momentary inactivity is most forgivable xD
