Beats Unraveled

This is like porn to me. There was a FPP (I can't find) where DJ's had, like, an hour to make a beat from records they found that morning. Then there was this video of Ingrid Michaelson re-recording that Gotye song. And Andrew Bird using loopers and performing a song at a Ted talk.

More. I need more. (Thanks for this!)

These are fantastic, thanks for sharing!

If you want more of something sorta like it, Kawehi's loop-based covers (previously) are also quite good (e.g., Heart-Shaped Box).

You might be thinking of this FPP, where producers have 10 minutes to make a new beat from scratch, either by sampling record(s), or making something from their own gear.

That Flying Lotus one was just flawless. Wow.

Bowls is like one of my favorite beats. That 4/4 bass kick is just perfect. Looking forward to watching the rest of these tonight.

This guy, as I said the last thread, is a spectacular performer. I don't think I could ever get enough of something like this - it's playful, skillful, it feels good, and it's super entertaining. Binkbeats, don't stop and tour or something - I'd love to see you live.

Also, I love this guys kit. The thumb piano bass is super awesome - I mean, how often do you need more than four notes in a bass line anyways?

Wow, great stuff. I also like the inversion of standard synthetic/electronic music processes, where computer-generated versions of acoustic sounds (eg the snare in Windowlicker or the physically modeled string sound in Lost & Found) become actual acoustic sounds in Binkbeats' versions.
