Uh, yeah, that way, float on the track like a Segway
Windows 2000 logoff sound and Phife Dawg
Made this in about 20 minutes. With Casio MT-70 drums, recording of "I Miss The Old Kanye" from the unreleased "The Life of Pablo", and samples of "No Good" from Oneohtrix Point Never's Garden of Delete.
A full-length extended version of the 10 second snippet that I had previously made for the game, Double Dragon Neon. I wrote the full version recently after my car was broken into, and I was visited by a very friendly and helpful LA County policewoman. [more inside]
Another Beastie Boys Remix [more inside]
slightly improved. Or slightly different. Not sure [more inside]
[Radioactive] remix of Low, by Juicy J (feat. Young Thug + Nicki Minaj), sequenced with that earwormy single by Envisage Komodos: If you can't get a radio single out of your head, turn it into a happy house track and put Juicy J on it. I used a clean version to make it enjoyable for all. Complete with filter sweeps and a half-time dubstep outro.
Blackalicious remix. Video.

Bonus track off Rom's upcoming album Sick Day. I made the beat! [more inside]
A good climb!
Dream pop meets hip hop full on, and the mesh essentially delivers what feels like a natural sound, as if that is how it was intended to be all along. This track is somewhat on the dark side, accentuated by both the underlying music and vocals, hear's an earbite for you, care of Canadian-Ukrainian duo Ummagma & Canadian rapper Drake. [more inside]
This is a hip-hop/rap song dedicated to Fomalhaut, a proto-planetary star of the constellation Pisces [more inside]
We once used to wonder what it would sound like to whip up a healthy feisty mix of dream pop and hip hop - rap and now, thanks to this tasty earbite, we have an idea. Definitely taking a walk on the dark side, underlined by both the music and vocals, this is still definitely worth the listen.

This a remix of an earlier drumline-based song by me using an a capella rap recorded by 3 MCs and allowed for use — the fusion makes a nice catchy result.
Chopped up Biggie Smalls and a drum sampler with a short attention span. nsfw [more inside]

Rap song. It's pretty short, so just listen to it. Mind your subwoofers.
Kinda moody, kinda sci fi hip hop with a lot of synthesizers and reverb and stuff. [more inside]
Standard epic/apocalyptic hip-hop end-of-the-world Millimeters of Mercury take on a standard Christmas melody.
A dark and nasty dub-influenced track I threw together today
So orville sash posted this beat on MeFi about a year ago but he is no longer on the site. So I decided to rap over the beat and this is the outcome. Off my latest mixtape, HeartBeatz II: Warm Embrace [more inside]
Heavily Arabic/Indian influenced hip-hop fusion instrumental. Yeah, that's right. More dominant phrygian.
A slower reworking of a track I made in the late 90s when I was the beat maker for a hip hop group. The song never got made. [more inside]
A theme for that girl who's hot and she knows it. [more inside]

More MeFi hip-hop! "Entrance Exam" is a rap song I wrote about growing up in the Philippines and eventually ending up in Seattle. I'd decided on a more aggressive/defiant tone from my usual stuff and I'm pretty happy with the result. [more inside]

This is an a cappella cover of Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot". It was the bonus track off of my latest mixtape, Hardly Broken II: Still Standing [more inside]
Post-crunk for haters to get their hate on to. Cut up vocals from 7 songs in the first verse, huge reverb in the second, and the third verse is just the stripped down beat to blow up your sound system.
From the Gospel According to Britney
What She Sees
Soooo, after the positive response to my Listen to Your Heart cover, I thought I'd post up the sequel I recently created. Complete with ludicrously exuberant synthesizer solo. Enjoy. This one, too, is a bass-pounding synth-pumping extravaganza. :)
A remix of "Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun" by the Beastie Boys for the January collaboration music challenge, by myself and The World Famous [more inside]
After reading this post, I was reminded of a beat I made 8 or 9 years back that obviously bites Pharcyde's "Drop". So here it is.
