Classic Beats is a facetiously-titled 3-hour-long drone release. I have fully gone down the drone rabbit hole, and here is the proof. Though minimal and possibly monotonous upon first listen, as you sink into the textures and rhythms your attention may find new things within to focus on.

"Sound needs space." -Caroline Park. Citation: www.panyrosasdiscos.net/pyr142-caroline-park-less-than-human/

Since this release (and now series) focuses on low-end textures, if possible please listen on speakers with strong, clear bass response for the complete experience. Headphones will keep the experience very much in the head; if you can, listen to and listen with your whole body.

These tracks can also function as excellent sleep aids, or even accompany meditation.


released August 27, 2016

Tracks 1, 3, and 4 made with the Korg MS-20m desktop module.

Track 2 made with the Studio Electronics Boomstar SE80.

All tracks are monaural.
