Beats mixed with lyric, traditional instruments and styles – funkenschleuder and his “Calypso War” edit
The latest installment in our free download series welcomes funkenschleuder for his first appearance. The German producer created an edit to The Mighty Terror And His Calypsonians‘ original track “Calypso War”.
trndmsk: What inspired you to produce the tracks?
funkenschleuder: I combine different styles from different musical epochs. Of course, my own musical socialization flows into each other. The basis is always fat beats mixed with lyric, traditional instruments and styles. My DJ sets can not therefore be pressed into a specific musical genre. They tend to mix in the surprising flow. Maybe like a good john peel session!
Where did you record it? And how?
The titles will be recorded in my home studio. I’m doing freestyle with different samples. The mix is recorded live with traktor, it needs several audio options with up to sixteen decks, one lap at a time. I work with different controls and effects and the heart is my Allen & Heath Xone 92. I call it freesyle sampling! It takes a lot of time, but the result is rough and original …
Why do you want to provide it as a free download?
… everyone should keep his musical horizon open.
