Comin at ya from the 8ctocave.
I got a new tune for yall from my boy Noms from Boston.
This kid is dedicated to his craft, and loves to experiment with music more than most producers I know. He’s always goin out there and getting the most rad ish and I love it all. With that being said, this one sounds like its straight from a 8bit underground theme song. Put a kick drum pumpin the beat to life and you got this banger together, and of course, Noms is always on that clean percussion ish. Makes me want to grab my Gameboy and rig it into some amplifiers, lovin it!
This next one is my own tune. Ziad threw me the idea to explain some of my bootlegging process and post this new one up to explain to the moombahtonistas how I get down. It really comes down to song choice, I have to love the OG to think about craftin something out of it. Once I get my song I go straight to work on percussion, laying down kicks and snares/hihats on different layers. Once I have the main beat I want down I start to match it with parts of the song by cutting everything into individual parts that I use in a sequencer. Most songs follow that path, and then I can derive anything else I want form that formula. This Zed’s Dead bootleg was a little project that I did in a day or two of finding cuts of the song I enjoyed and mixing them down into my own beat. I enjoy sampling more than anything, and bootlegging is really fun for me for that reason. Enjoy!
