#4

I’m still in, doing genre research and coming up with a gameplan right now. I have enough obscure 70s/80s japanese CDs that I should be able to get something interesting…


#5

Ooohh, I liked this one. Very chill.


#6

Mine is now in progress. I did some sampling last week, then a bunch of IRL stuff came up. I came back to a good brass stab and a reasonably chopped breakbeat from my japanese CD collection. IDK what I’m going to do for a vocal hook, that seems like a key element of the genre, but nothing is screaming at me to use it yet. Actually maybe there is one, but IDK if I can get it in key or not.

I got lucky that the brass stab I’m using is actually just a Cmaj triad, so everything is in key without having to offset stuff. Using some 90s rompler patches to keep things in period.
