Few examples : Anamanaguchi - 'Jetpack Blues Sunset Hues' Often, there is a confusion between sound relative to chiptune/chipmusic and 8-bit sound from 8-bit computers or consoles.
That may sound like a potshot, but it’s actually praise.
It’s clear at this point that Timbaland, aka Timothy “Tim” Mosley, has a grasp of not simply , but raw wavelengths and peaks and trebles, that most non-canine listeners do not possess.
To my surprise, the answer I got was none of the above, but was, in fact, love.“My mother encouraged me to beat on pots, drum on the table, stomp around the house,” recalls Timbaland in the book’s first chapter.
He’s not bashful in describing his “prodigious ability to collect and catalog sounds,” but credits everything to his mother, shelter administrator Latrice Mosley: Fueled on maternal tenderness, spare cash from dishwashing gigs, and a reluctant father’s gift of a Technics turntable set, Timbaland truly did build an unlikely empire, one based not in entrepreneurship or ego but in sheer talent, work ethic, and an unmatchable intimacy with sound.
” and his production on Destiny’s Child’s forgotten 1998 soundtrack single “Get on the Bus.”Honestly, the same could be said for beat-boxing; Tim’s breathy blips can be heard briefly on both the tracks mentioned above, and reached their peak on Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” a few years later.
Up until 1999, Timbaland was making purely fresh beats, crisp and innovative in their own right compared to the compressor carnage being wrought in the pop market during that time. Even Tim admits it in “As usual, I had this one beat that I just couldn’t get a grip on.
There was a time, however, when all of this wealth was threatened.
A time not too long ago at that, a legacy which dogged the producer for more than a decade until his most recent court engagement was dismissed last year on a technicality.
Whereas gulag cats like Vladimir Putin use mob slang to get their points across, Obama turned to hip-hop culture, biting Jay Z’s dance move by brushing the dirt off his shoulder on national TV.“When reporters asked his aides if Obama was specifically referencing our song,” Tim notes on page 161, “the campaign replied and said, ‘Well, he does have some Jay Z on his i Pod.’ Epic moment! Especially considering “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” was Tim’s sole contribution to Tim’s marching band period, corresponding to late 2002 and most of 2003, produced some real bops for the listening public.
Compare the percussion on “Dirt,” for example, to the bucket-banging on “Cop That Shit” (later duplicated by colleague Justin Timberlake on Beyoncé’s “Yoncé/Partition”); the cheerleader whistle samples and hand-claps on Missy Elliott’s “Pass That Dutch”; and the iconic pep rally horns on Lil’ Kim’s “The Jump Off”.
In short, it is the sound of the first demos and video games.
