[Lo-Fi Hip Hop] A Stroll in Paris

By Mortistar on February 4, 2018 11:59 pm

Hey guys, what week are we on now, 5? Crazy how quick the weeks go by. Started this one again on the Sunday, really need to sort myself out with timings aha. Anyways, I got some inspiration by listening to old jazz tunes to make a sorta hip hop beat out of one of the Jazz Standards, "Afternoon In Paris". All of the piano is recorded by me (hence the abysmal timing) but everything else is programmed in. I'm really loving the Karoryfer Meatbass soundfont that I used for the double bass, it's a beautiful soundfont and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make bossa-nova/jazz styled pieces. As always, I hoped you enjoyed this track and thank you for listening heart

-Jon

This is like a chique 30's speakeasy, but the barman is wearing a crooked snapback instead of a flatcap. great vibe!

Oh shit. Not sure what I expected, but this is great :0 Very smooth. The recorded piano definitely adds to it. Well played! Definitely one of my favs!

beautiful vibe here, and a super fun take on a classic. love that meaty, movie-punch sounding snare.

Lo-fi, jazz and hop, always a lovely combination :3 And the piano playing isn't nearly as abysmal as you think it is! Props for the snare sound as well, like Parallelis said.

Thank you! Gotta admit, as soon as I found that snare I was like "I really gotta use this", glad it fits! heart
