I’m adding songs with a little bit of singing to my Soundcloud profile these days, because I’ve got this idea in my head that people would rather listen to that than instrumental music.
This one’s pretty simple, the whole lyrics are: “Hey Brother, you’re doing it on your own” repeated, looped and cut.
At first, the lyrics came out different, it was “Hey Mother, I’m doing it on my own” but I changed it because I didn’t want people to think I had “Mommy Issues” (Which I do, but I’m working on that, don’t worry) Now I know what you are thinking, you’re thinking: “You shouldn’t be worried about what people think” and you’d be right, except, I am worried (I’m working on that also, don’t fret)
I have no idea what style of music this is. I want to say Trip Hop? I’m not sure. All I can tell you, is that it was made with an instrument called: The Korg Electribe Sampler. I made a video a while back, using the same song structure and lyrics and it got liked a lot, if ever you are interested to see:
All you need is one small (Real) scratch sample. Use the OP-1 drum sampling engine and map the keyboard to different parts of the sample. Change volume, change the pitch (with the blue knob) and try to select slightly different parts of the scratch to make it sound more natural. Voilà.
I don’t like to toot my own horn (usually) but it turns out this video is easily the most popular Youtube video on my channel, so far. It features the looper made by Roland/Boss (RC 202) and the vastly popular analog synthesizers called “Volca” from Korg. The loops (1 and 2) were recorded before shooting the video. Both are riffs produced from the Volca BASS (Bottom right). The main beat (drum part) is one of the presets included in the RC 202. Adding a filter to loop 2 (starting at 1:26) and messing around with the repeat effect on the loop station (starting at 2:39) made the whole thing pop! IMAO
I’m not sure what “style” or “genre” this music is. It’s instrumental, obviously. The beat is kinda “hip hop – ish” and the loops are electronic (electronica?) of some kind. Leave a comment if you think you know the genre. I’d like to hear from you!
I made this track available for download (for a measly 1$ on Bandcamp or 4.95$ for the whole album on itunes) or streaming (Free on Spotify). I called it “The Storm”.
If you think this track might be right for your video / movie / short / documentary / commercial or if you have any other other plans, I want to hear from you! Drop me a line on any of any of my social platforms, I reply to nearly every comment!
I made this! I’m not very good in evaluating what genre this or that song is. I just know what sounds good to me or not. When I submit a track to journalists (Music blog editors) through Submithub I have to carefully choose the blogs according to the genre that they prefer. That has been a problem for me ever since I started. So, I’m asking for your help on this one. Does this one fit any category you’re familiar with? Let me know in the comment section.
