Nik Furious: Proton Cannon: Torn

An experimental instrumental song. Somewhere between hip hop, country, and lounge.

Truly a soft rock sample if there ever was one.

Nik Furious: Proton Cannon: Sold Out

SWEET BEAT! It's a simple funky loop. Kind of unusual for me because I usually make my sampled beats with a couple different loops coming from a few different places throughout the song...

But Sold Out is a little bit simpler than my usual production. Well, in theory. But I remember making it years ago, and it took me forever to find the right cymbal crash sound.

And check out my new PodOMatic page! I've got a kickass Superior Tech mix posted.

Nik Furious: Proton Cannon: Shadow Lady

The sample used here is kickass. It's a hodgepodge stew of sonic bits from the original song, all reordered and spliced together to create a musical Frankenstein. And I think my drums over top of it give it a strong, interesting flavor.

And I love this beat cause it's so different like that, but I sorta hate it cause it's not the type of music I would personally listen to very often. In retrospect, the whole thing is very inspired by the sound of the song Twilight by Frankie Beverly and Maze (even though you might not be able to tell it).
