I was in Aarhus this weekend and it was really great! I met some fine people, drank some beers, enjoied the sun, and to top it all AGF won 1-0 over Brøndby which I witnessed on the stadium with 20.000 other happy Århusianere..
The show went pretty good, but I had some problems with my mpd24. For some reason the faders and knobs wouldn't work which made it pretty hard to do anything except from changing the part in ableton. I'm kinda hoping it's broken, that would give me a good excuse to buy an apc40 once they come out..
Baba Trick played before me, and he sure got some nice beats! The first track I heard of him was the one he got on the ...and then came the invisible morning internet album, which I thought was a bit Madlib'ish, so it was nice to hear that he got lot's of other cool beats.
I want to write about the other acts, Badun and Pushing People, but I'm afraid of, due to heavy alcohol comsumption, my memory of the two shows is a bit blank..
Anyway, here's a short clip of a beat I worked on, on the train home.
Oldie but goodie.. this one is more than 4 years old from a period where I made some more elecrtonica typed beats. I remember that i was listening a lot to Band Ane at the time, and that was probably also some of the inspiration for this track..
Khal Allan's very homemade debut album was one of the best danish hiphop albums in '08 and probably also of all time. It parts from the usually danish take on hiphop where you try to nail a certain amercan sound as good as you can, and fucks that by just doing whatever seemed right at the time.
You need to understand danish to fully get this album, but it is probably also pretty enjoyable just for the beats.
I got some beats on there aswell.

This was first made for an Analogik track, but it never got finished. I came across it a while back when I was going thru my old stuff, and thought it was to good to just forget. I made some new drums and a new main groove but kept the guitar solo and some of the synth parts that was made together with Analogik.
Originally the main groove were based on a Art Blakey (Dat Dere) sample. But that got moved to the back once the rest of the stuff started to feel and sound right.
