Welp, this was an attempt to pay tribute to J Dilla and the sound he helped create in the late 90s/early 2000s. I wanted to make something I could hear Baatin or Phife or Q-Tip on. I don't think I did a bad job per say, but there's something about it that doesn't quite sit right with me. But this challenge isn't about making perfect songs. It's just about making songs. So here's a song.

Addictive Keys - Mark One
JX-3P
OP-1
Various drum packs

It's dry, blending into the background. I dig it, but I can imagine that's not what you're going for.

Wonky enough for me, Sir. I think it sounds pretty dope

Yeah, everything feels really dry, but I think I also should have spent more time on the sound design, especially of the Mark One. It's just sorta... There.
