Weekly Beats 2018 #3

By antler on January 21, 2018 12:27 pm

Another week, 'nother LSDJ tune! This time around a mid-tempo, laid-back track.

The main reason for me to participate in WB is to simply put in the time and get more experienced with LSDJ. I figured going for quantity would eventually get me comfortable enough to play around with different techniques and styles. I gotta say it's working for me smile

This week I wanted to move away from EDM-style sidechaining, going for warmer harmonies and more room to breathe. I'm also happy with the bass line and harmonic progression in the mid-section, as it moves away from the easy choice of repeating patterns of 4 bars ad infinitum.

ooh, subtle stereo effects. great track to end a hyped up set with. Like the track is trying to say: "man, we had a great time. you rocked, i rocked. let's do this again real soon!"

I get that end credits feel too, really nice melodic work. Really nice mellow LSDJ work, not an easy thing for a medium that lends itself so easily to harsh & bright sounds.

Oh man, it is always so nice to hear the gameboy do something other than slam hard. I've never been too successful at chilling out like this, and it's so nicely done here. I especially like the darkening tone halfway through. Very moody.

Now that might give me an idea wink Thanks, both! Fortunately we're not nearing the end of WB18 at *all*!

Well, you're one of the kings of slamming lsdj, so consider me equally impressed. I'm always up for exchanging .sav's if you'd like, for educational purposes and glory and such.

D'aww, thank you smile Maybe a few weeks down the weekly beats path and we can swap then. That'd be a lot of fun.

Everything on a gameboy?
Amazing!

January 22, 2018 12:05 pm

Both upbeat and mellow at the same time. Great chords and melodies, I love it heart

charming tune heart

January 22, 2018 1:50 pm

...that takes an unexpected turn and gets a little dark

January 22, 2018 9:03 pm

Wow, really impressive ability to translate those melodic themes with such a limited sound palette!

January 22, 2018 11:44 pm

Super cute!

Yeap, all on one old, gray brick of a gameboy! There's more (and more experienced!) people doing LSDJ this year (perhaps not every week), you should check out Hypnogram and Roboctopus, from the top of my head. smile

I wouldn't mind if everything was like this from now on.

January 24, 2018 2:35 pm

Awwww this is a great tune! The first half is charming and the second half takes us interesting places before bringing us home. Nicely done!

January 25, 2018 5:39 am

cute tune!

Thanks you all! ^_^

Wow this again has some cool stereo effects and totally digging the "theme reprise" you have with all the infectious melodies.  Reminded me of beating Mega Man 2 smile

Excellent theme, and I really like the percussion (and especially those little fills) on this. Very rich work in the 8-bit realm!
