I'm basically a sample freak - I love the whole DJ Shadows/Avalanches sound, and always wanted to do the same style, but mixing in my own ideas.
So, this is the first rendition of my latest piece of work - for now I've released it under the Creative Commons License as it contains many many samples from various sources. Any sign of protest from any of these parties will mean that I will have to remove it, but until that time please feel free to enjoy it! http://www.obscuresounds.com/audio/milk_honey.mp3
I would very much appreciate any comments people may have on the mix (good or bad please).
The track itself is meant to be a joke. The german lyrics are about "schlaraffenland", or translated in to english "land of milk & honey"... think along the lines of Atlantis, or utopia. It then cuts away to an english chorus about a guy tripping out on mushrooms. The idea is that the guy is in this "schlaraffenland".
It's highly experimental from a sampling sense. So... does it work?
