This needs a lot of refinement, but anyho…. What do you think? Left hand is messy, need to practice! Lol! Quantize, Quantize, arpeggio exercises! The challenge is making it sound hip hop, slightly inspired by Dilla’s Suite for Ma Dukes.
Second one – audio sent through another artist, added some strings and a b-line.
Vienna Symphonic Library! Best orchestral sounds apparently.
