A special shout out goes out to all the "usual suspects" in here who keep this party going with their continuous activity, dedication and support.
For this week I went with samples from one of my favorite japanese musicians/composers: Yūji Ōno
He is 78 years young now and still touring to show everyone his music. I think its incredibly amazing.
Check out his soundtracks, they are beautiful.
Official (japanese) website: https://www.vap.co.jp/ohno/
In addition the theme will be lo-fi. Give us that raw, dirty sound.
It doesn't have to be the whole track if you want, but make sure that at least somewhere/somehow in your track lofi is present.
Please limit yourself to a maximum of 2 different beats/flips in your track. Just one beat is obviously cool as well.
Maximum time limit: 4 minutes and 20 seconds.
No full acapellas, very short vocal samples are allowed
Outside drums allowed
Outside synths etc allowed but make sure that the sample dominates the mood
No outside samples allowed
I hope you have fun with the samples
