Wanted to upload something accessible by anyone during these turbulent Bera times. I'll be taking 0% creator share on this one.
Not much of a backstory here, back in 2017 when twitter was plagued by the same 20 rotating music production Hot-takes, the age old question of which takes more skill, Sampling or playing instruments was trending. The days of being able to just focus on art, then post said art to social media with a link is gone. You must engage or perish haha, so I respectfully engaged. As a producer that does both, I prefer to sample. Not just loop up samples (tho I also enjoy loops and there is nothing wrong with loops), but I like to mangle samples into new worlds so they are no longer recognizable or able to be detected by any form of "content I.d.". Turning Samples into instruments through a billion micro chops is my favorite pass time and anyone paying attention without a doubt knows this. However, I've been making non-sample based music for over 2 decades as well. Someone on twitter responding to my neutral attempt to squash this age old argument so we can focus on more important things said "What would you know, all you do is sample anyway". When I told them, I do everything under the sun, skill and level of difficulty like music in general is all subjective. What feels impossible to some is a simple as breathing air to others and vice versa. All that matters is creating art you enjoy creating. They then challenged to me to make a "Chill-hop type beat" in an hour. 30 minutes later A track I never intended to release was born "Tingles". I've been watching Asmr since 2015 to relax, so I hopefully the track title makes a little more sense.
May you find peace during turbulent times.
