here's a random jam just for the hell of it.
i put together a compilation of my best recordings that combine drums/berimbau/loops. i think this stuff is probably some of my most valuable/unique contribution to the world of music, even though it'll probably never be heard by anybody except a handful of bored people on the internet. i think the berimbau is severely underrecognized as one of the most badass instruments in the world. the one-stringed musical bow is the ancestor of all the variations of multi-stringed instruments we all take for granted. i'm not sure if it's even been conclusively decided whether it followed or preceded the archery bow. ultra-primitive. most of the berimbaus in these recordings are ones i made myself (after having been taught by my mestre, who i think makes the best berimbaus in the world). capoeira players totally revere the berimbau, but it is still super rare that it finds its way into contemporary music, and even when it does its usually in the form of samples, or just makes a brief appearance to give an "exotic" feel, then pushed to the background where its barely audible. There's a couple exceptions of artists i know of who have put the berimbau at the forefront of their music, Nana Vasconcelos (who died recently), and Ramiro Musotto, who made 2 albums and seems to have disappeared since then. So here's my own personal blending of the ultra primitive with modern tech. And as a disclaimer, this is weird shit. I put the least psychedelic stuff at the beginning, so you slowly immerse yourself in an alternate universe, and like a frog on a stove, you don't realize you're tripping balls until its too late.
i didn't carve any pumpkins this year but i did carve out this compilation of halloween-flavored drum/loop/sampler jams: https://archive.org/details/halloopween_201610
I had to design nutcrackers last week. The famous German nutcrackers. Did not know we make famous nutcrackers until then tbh. Listened to this while at work:

Fckyeah, I love music!
Post rock, krautrock, classical, Kpop, psychedelic, electro swing, prog fusion, grunge, rockabilly, Bossa nova, purist jazz, international folk, anything from the 90's, ... You name it!
Okay not a huge metal fan, I'll admit... but I'm open to learning to like it in the future.
"Bulletproof then Headstrong" now delisted. Excellent piece with a fat beat and dope rhymes by MC Dave.
