same ol' thing

Looks like things are starting to open up here, may even start working next week, sun is shining, snow is gone, green things are sprouting, life is looking good.  I have been spending as much time as possible outside this week, need to catch up on lots of great tracks.  Used some samples from the citizen dj project, really great idea and very slick website (https://labs.loc.gov/work/experiments/citizen-dj/).

Ohh sounds great! It's looking like we'll be in til September where I am. The sun is shining though, which is so nice. That citizen dj thing is pretty cool for a government project lol. The way you used that sample is great, and the epiano writing is lovely too. Very nice heart

I checked out Citizen DJ too, it was super fun.  Great use of the sample.  Love it when the shaker beat drops.

Stay safe if you go back to work!

I'm still grieving everyone we lost on Sector 7 but life goes on smile

Nice one! This got me grooving, good amount of swing. Makes me wanna go walk around in the sun and watch the green things sprout. Love that sample use and the keys. Really sounds like a jar in there. I love tapping on jars.

Excellent beat right out of da bag.  I too checked out Citizen DJ a bit when I first read about it.  I spent a good 10mins just dragging my cursor over the samples giving it that radio searching feel.  The percussion in the drums is really catchy.  The shakers and bell thingy get your head nodding quick.  Nice work!
