FEATURE – 64BAR CHALLENGE

NEWNESS FROM THE 64BAR MUSIC FAMILY!


I FIRST LEARNED ABOUT THIS UNIQUE AND INSPIRING PROJECT FROM LONDON’S ‘PROOF OF CONCEPT‘, A BRILLIANT MUSICIAN WHO CREATES DEEP, ATMOSPHERIC ELECTRONIC MUSIC…


How To Ruin Everything by Proof Of Concept

(THIS STUNNING PROOF OF CONCEPT TUNE CAN BE FOUND ON THE LAST MIX IN THE SERIES, LINK DOWN BELOW!)

 
THIS WAS BACK IN 2009…I LOVED THE TUNES HE CREATED FOR THIS PROJECT AND DECIDED TO EXPLORE SOME OF THE OTHER TRACKS CREATED BY ARTISTS INVOLVED…I WASN’T DISAPPOINTED. 


THESE MUSICIANS ALL HAD TWO THINGS IN COMMON…THEY WERE ALL AVID VISITORS TO THE NINJA TUNES FORUM AND ALL WANTED TO GET TOGETHER TO MAKE MIXES OF THEIR OWN MUSIC, NOT FOR ANY SOLE PURPOSE OTHER THAN FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC… NOW THAT IS A THING OF BEAUTY! 

IN ORDER TO BE INVOLVED IN THE SERIES, ALL PARTICIPANTS AGREED TO ONE MAJOR STIPULATION, THAT ALL TUNES SUBMITTED BE RESTRICTED TO 64 BARS. A GLOBAL PROJECT WAS INITIATED, ONE THAT WOULD BRING BEAT DRIVEN ELECTRONIC MUSIC FROM OVER 40 PRODUCERS TO A NEW AUDIENCE. I AM ONE OF THESE NEW LISTENERS, AND I WAS THROUGHLY IMPRESSED WITH THE STANDARD AND QUALITY OF THE PIECES FEATURED. 

  

THE 6TH AND FINAL 64BAR CHALLENGE MIX WAS PUT TOGETHER BY NINJA TUNE’S OWN DJ FOOD, MIXING 28 TRACKS IN 52 MINUTES…BEAUTIFUL…SERIOUSLY…CHECK IT OUT  – HERE!

THE 64BAR PROJECT WAS RECENTLY SPOTLIGHTED ON LONDON’S ‘SEEKS MUSIC‘ RADIO, VIA THEIR GUEST LIST SLOT. THE SHOW ENTITLED ‘THE 64 BAR ORCHESTRA’, WAS PUT TOGETHER BY CARDIFF’S DJ KOVAS, THE FOUNDER OF THE PROJECT AND CURATOR OF THE 6 MIX ALBUM RELEASES. 

THIS SHOW SPORTS SOME EXCLUSIVE TRACKS FROM 64BAR ARTISTS AND ALSO A LITTLE FEATURE ABOUT THE 64BAR STORY…


A SENSE OF COMMUNITY AND CAMARADERIE IS OFTEN MISSING IN THE MUSIC SCENE THESE DAYS (BOTH IN INDIE AND MAINSTREAM CIRCLES), THIS PROJECT SHOWS WHAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY GOOD PEOPLE WHO UNITE IN THE POWER OF THEIR PASSIONS….MUSIC!

THIS LAST MIX IS PRETTY GREAT, SHARE IT, ENJOY IT AND BE SURE TO EXPLORE THE OTHER MIXES FROM THE SERIES FEATURING  KILLER TRACKS BY KELP, MIKE LADD AND MANY MORE – HERE!
