2068: Near Earth Object 99942 Apophis vs Man

By Jason Nijjer on May 29, 2016 6:45 pm

Well apparently we have until 2068 to find a way to prevent our demise like the dinosaur's.  Fortunately it gives us plenty of time to listen to great music.  Piano melody was sampled from a vinyl record from Fresh Aire Interlude I, just added some effects to it and slowed it down.  Vocal samples were taken from the European Space Agency soundcloud page from a conversation of the probability that the asteroid Apophis could strike Earth or the Moon on April 12, 2068.

Well done; great incorporation of the voices.

Totally agreed--this starts with an excellent machine-dub atmosphere...and then the voices really give this piece, um...impact. (Sorry.) Fav'd and downloaded!

Excellent groove with that deep kick.  Imagine how many tracks you'll have finished by '68 yikes If I can make beats at 90yrs old, winning!
