Another experiment mixing live drums with programmed drums. I sampled my friend Brendan playing cello, played a simple melody on the 0-coast, and then tried to arrange things in some sort of logical way. Used a midside recording setup on both cello and drums which I don't normally do. Also I am never quite sure how to mix 808s -- to me they always feel either too quiet or way too loud.

This is cool! I like the mix of all the different sounds here. Nice touch with the “click track.”

Digging the cello and how well you mix it with the electro stuff.

Cello is meaty and the 808 work is juicy. 0-coast sounds great too. Nice job bringing this all together so seamlessly.

Good blend of live and synth instruments - digging these experiments! Cello is such an awesome instrument

Unmistakable 0 Coast that melody, such a cool little synth. I kind of wish the live drums were more compressed and driven but you have put together a great blend of sounds here without a doubt. Inspiring work.

0-coast is so d0pe-coast

shout outs to B always fresh on the cello.  the little "edit stop" on the cello was great.

808 samples are always surprisingly loud and have tons of sub bass that I always cut out

I enjoyed the arrangement of the different sections
