Putting together a synthwave tune using Locrian is harder than it first seemed.
At the start of the year, I thought the Acid42 project was dead. Turns out all I needed was a new set of sonic tools.
Consider this your quarantine soundtrack. It collects the last 3 years’ worth of ethnotronic worldbeat chillout tracks from my archives. Free download.
“Ang Huling El Bimbo (A42 Cover)” is my cover version and homage to the hit 1996 song by the Philippine rock band Eraserheads. It turns what was originally a pop/rock ballad filled with nostalgia and puppy love into a more bouncy hip-hop infused version with a dash of IDM and downtempo electronics.
“Positive Babinski Reflex” is a jazzy, synth-driven tune resurrected from limbo by turning it from a quite typical house track into something more organic and funky.
