Princess Toadstool - FLYamSAM


Clearly the shuffle feature on my computer is broken if I'm listening to another piece that Flying Lotus had his hand in (see previous post for details). Or is this a sign?

In this collaboration project, FlyLo teamed up with Samiyam to produce some soulful electronics that I think anybody could kick back to. One thing that stands out to me in this song is the synth - it's reminiscent of an old Nintendo, but has this buzz to it that rings beautifully on a nice set of speakers (or headphones, if that's what you've got on you).


What stands out to you?

P.S. I'd give you a link to an album to check out, but there is none! I heard it was supposed to come out sometime last year, but apparently that never happened.

  3. That's wicked. How do you even make such sounds? I mean I dabbled in music making software for a bit but... this sounds so organic. What the hell did they do!

  4. @T3CH: I just call it music because people create way too many subgenres for things. Send me a message if you want me to send you some links :)

  5. @Freek: I know of a couple techniques for sound design, but these guys clearly know how to do it right. From my experience, it almost sounds like a saw/square wave combo with buzz and doubler effects? Your guess is as good as mine on this one.
