"vocals" are from 1992-1993 (probably), when I used to walk around everywhere with a My First Sony and record nonsense and gibberish

Haha awesome, thats a pretty cool idea.  Were you actually singing into it or did you pitch correct it?

January 27, 2020 12:31 am

this is ok. Musically this flows so well and the layers are outstanding. Bringing out your inner Pogo.

January 27, 2020 12:33 am

This is such a creative idea. The actual tune is dripping with nostalgia too, this is lovely heart

The original Mike memos! How did 1993 mike know to sing in tune for your 2020 track? Cool how you matched it up. Love the last third of the song where it gets a little dub feel.  Awesome!

Your PLUNDERPHONICS skills are getting better with each track.  The ending melodies you created for this are catchy af

January 27, 2020 2:04 am

Bet it was a blast listening to those found tapes trying to get ideas for this

January 27, 2020 2:09 pm

This rules- Hot track and the lil vocal recordings are so cute smile

January 27, 2020 3:19 pm

thanks, the trick is to spend way too much time looking for samples

January 27, 2020 5:41 pm

It's pretty mind-blowing if you think about it from the point of view of your younger self; you've just done a collab with you from the future! The melody will stay in my head for a good while I think, well done!

he literally has hours of tape that he recorded.  must have been pretty painstaking to listen to and get the right samples.  props to my old man for keeping those old cassettes

Mad props, agreed! The concept reminds me of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFGAQrEUaeU

This is super awesome.  Love the collaboration with your younger self.  And it's a pretty rippin' tune as well.

January 27, 2020 9:43 pm

Hahha! this is awesome!

January 28, 2020 12:31 am

I had one of those as a kid! It was like my favourite thing ever. Digging the nostalgia heart smile

January 28, 2020 12:42 am

Fantastic project! Well done!

January 28, 2020 1:22 am

Man this makes me wish I could find my old tapes! I agree with demonzor, the ending melody is pretty catchy... if you remix it, start with the catchy stuff, break it down with the slow intro, then bring it back to the catchy part all the way to pizza hut!

January 28, 2020 1:39 am

Really charming idea for a track! Great little vibe. Nice job

January 28, 2020 1:32 pm

This is adorable. Great concept.

January 28, 2020 3:29 pm

Super cool track, love how you did integrate the young you into that. smile

January 28, 2020 9:40 pm

Great idea, this is very nice. Bass hitting right, and that voice, adorable. And Hello!

January 29, 2020 1:30 am

Teach me the way! So sick. Id love to learn how you pitch correct tracks like that.

January 29, 2020 8:51 pm

this is so dope

January 29, 2020 9:58 pm

Yeah! Love this!

January 30, 2020 9:05 pm

This is so fun, a bunch of fun mouth sounds.

January 31, 2020 10:39 pm

This is soooooo incredible!  I also have hundreds of tapes, also never went anywhere without my tape recorders :')

January 31, 2020 10:40 pm

this is me

February 1, 2020 7:37 pm

February 2, 2020 12:18 pm

February 2, 2020 3:03 pm

Beautiful idea and well-executed. Mix is just right. I wish I knew where my old tapes my brother and I made are.
