The second installment of my Mixed Up series has now seen the light. Let me introduce you to the Mixmaster 1200.
The Mixmaster 1200 is a wireless scratching device for the turntablist who prefers to deliver his/her scratches like a 5 star chef. As you can see, the Mixmaster does not have any beaters attached to it. This is because it has small laser powered plasma emitter beaters that actually heat up the airwaves around the device itself producing the unique sounding aural explosions.
I was going through some zip-disks for my MPC 2000XL and found some ok sounding beats so I decided to go and play in the sound studio of our university and mixed a couple of them. They sounded like they need some vocals so I headed to The Beastie Boys website for some acapellas and here’s two quick remixes. Nothing fancy.
I haven’t done any beats for a really long time, maybe I should try to do something. I’ve been planning an instrumental hip hop/turntablism record for who knows how long, but never really got myself to actually doing it. Hiljaa hyvä tulee.
