Snakepliskens remix

I got my first video response on YouTube today, and it is a pretty cool feeling. Much has been said about how bad the commentary can be on YouTube, and I tend to agree though I have had better luck than most. That said, the real genius of YouTube is in the video response feature, and I got a taste of it today.

Vproducerofbeats from Brisbane Australia took the audio from an Escape from New York clip I posted and remixed it into an amazing beat. What I really like about his re-mixes is that he actually takes a video recording of himself in the process of playing the re-mix with a contraption that I don’t fully understand, but dig nonetheless. Kudos to the creative genius of Vproducerof beats, and long live Snake Pliskens!

    Yeah that response definitely rates better than most on Youtube. He’s playing a sampler. Get yourself one, Tons o’ fun, and truly all other forms of non-linear editing/remixing seem kludgy once you’ve played with one of these.

    Most groovy all round.

    Man, I’d like to get me one of those machines.

    You can find older ones on eBay for not too much cash, cf Given the software package you use already, though, you might be better looking for a midi controller. You can get the same style as this, except with just the controller, new, for a few hundred bucks.

    Haha sick! Many thanks for the props even if it took me 14yrs to stumble across it on a Google search!

    The machine was an Akai MPC2500
