The space flight youth

By alonemusic on January 5, 2018 9:56 pm

Well, I seem to have joined in again this year. We'll see how that goes, eh? Nothing like dusting (literally and mentally) the gears that make sounds. Where are my presets? How do I sync that thing again? Why can't my hands move as fast as they used to? Why do we age?

Anyway. This is basically a big blast of (nearly) everything I had at my disposal. Game Boy, NES, Meeblip, Shruthi, Ableton, guitar, Pocket Operator...

Can I rap for a sec? Not like in a flow way.. but a, lets be real, yo, way... WB16 really helped clear my head of a lot of stuff, I made more in a year than I had in.. nearly 10? That was great, and the focus there gave me focus in other places, with friends, with exercise (I ran like a half marathon in 2016), with work, I did enough illustrations to spend 2017 making a book (buy my book: shop.alone-music.co.uk). Do I want that from 2018? I don't know, but I do know I missed it. So hello, let's make 2018 sound great.

Anyway.. I did some single art, cus I clearly hate spare time.

I like the reverby bits. You're making me want to dust off my Shruthi.

Wow, that artwork is incredible!  Also, thanks for the rap ;-)  WeeklyBeats 2016 was huge for my personal growth and I am excited to do 2018 with you!
