in which I rhyme about my name and some area codes I like. simple bass and piano to accompany the kick-snare. also I try my hand at some scratching. 119 is the tempo.
puff it, pass it, instant classic 505 where the beat was crafted [more inside]
A beat I made in Garageband featuring trombone. All the music parts are loops of me, on keyboard, trombone, and bass. The scratching is Mic Santi, my roommate.

by Fantastic Plastic Mims; my first foray into the mashing of up. Please be kind, this took me well over ten minutes.
Hip-hop has been a passion of mine for a long time. And recently, some friends of mine and I got together to produce an entire album. This is the latest effort from me, as featured on our upcoming album. Sure, it's a demo, but it's free!
Another "can it be a rap song?" From the point of view of an elf that worships the a-bomb ("the hallowed ground is los alamos..."). It's only 2 minutes but it's packed, pay attention. There is nothing like this, I would say modestly, so I don't know what will happen when people hear it. The elf is a theme on the album... a nuclear terrorist in this case.
This is one of the tracks on my soon to be released CD This Pound of Flesh emcee Will E P that people seems to get right away, although there is no way to explain it.
These are the sort of things that occur to me as I go for my daily walk. Four-and-five-part harmony plus solo, bass and vocal percussion. Recorded in GarageBand using my MacBook's built-in mic.
This is a track from an upcoming album where every track is an instrumental based on samples of international folk music. The chopped up melodies on this one come courtesy of China. Thanks, country of China!
at the marriot the proletariat can find himself a bed he's been workin' day and night man was better off dead
A pretty depressing (er... "introspective") hip-hop track from about two years ago. I'm not usually this emo about things. Really.
A productive nights flailing realized this tightly sloppy thing that says "bramph".
This track is part 2 of a 23 minute mega mash up with a steady beat and some obscure samples. When I played this set live, I was happy to see people breakin' to it. Cool! http://www.albertoforero.com

MeFi hip hop heads stand up! Semantics on the microphone, me on the boards.
Shakuhachi player meets Roberta Flack, Redd Foxx and John Wilbye in a bar. "for if one flaming dart come from her eye, was never dart so sharp, ah, then you die, you die."
A short noir soundtrack. by Audiosports (http://www.albertoforero.com)
A journey through ancient lands to the city of the sun. Boom bap in the tradition of the Lost Children of Babylon and Jedi Mind Tricks. Clockwork on the boards.
Another song (featuring spinning from DJ Sku) from The Wild Farewell by The Harvey Girls, as posted earlier in Projects. It is too damn hot to be outside.
