is a rabbit hole of fun and weird videos, mostly focused on urban/ dance/ electronic music, sorted into 20 different "channels" or programs
. To make this timesink more manageable, I'd like to bring your attention to their Beat This channel
, wherein producers are challenged to create a new beat, from scratch, in 10 minutes. The first mix is from a young producer who goes by Swindle
, and he pulls off a pretty nice track in the time allotted
, joking he should do all his tracks in ten minutes. But if that doesn't catch your fancy, and all those producers names don't mean anything to you, may I present Kieren Hebden, aka Four Tet
, making a beat with nothing but MJ's Thriller album as the source material
, sampling and distorting it into something weird and new.
If you're looking for more weirdness from Four Tet, you might enjoy his two hour Just Jam mix
, with audio and visuals mixed live at the time of recording. If you want a TON of music, definitely check out the Just Jam channel
, but note that the early days were fun but pretty rough
, and those episodes are streaming through Ustream instead of YouTube.
