    Ha, cheers man! Shame we wont be hearing any Donut action this week, always enjoy your contributions. This was actually the inspiration behind this week's theme. I was flicking through Cage's book Silence and thought, hey I wonder if this might work for a battle... Be interested to see how far y'all chose to run with it!

    STBB 599 Dark Trip Hop

    Congrats on the win dude! Love Portishead. I have a really strong memory of watching them with my Dad on the Jools Holland show. I then tried some Geoff Barrow-esque scratching on my parents' records, and ended up breaking the family turntable. Used samples 1 and 2, chopped some breaks, found some vox, played some piano/keys and a bit of guitar

    STBB #597 - Gabor Szabo

    Congrats on the win dude! Based the track on the open bass riff half way through the samp. Pitched and reamped Gabor which led to some drones and the rawk guitar sound. Played some piano and keys, chopped some breaks, and ended up with something at a faster bpm than usual (though still under 100bpm, lol) Peace

    Looking forward to giving these beats a listen yo! But if any of this has whetted your appetite for more Buchla action, here's some stuff from a maestro filmed last week

    STBB #579 - Mark E Smith

    stbb579 - rip Mark E Smith Hey, cheers for the love last week Liked the digging aspect of last week's battles, so in a similar vein... Mark E Smith passed earlier this year. As you probs know, he was an infamous/legendary lyricist and vocalist in post-punk band The Fall from Manchester (my hometown) To get a flavour of the band's style check Hit the North, Totally Wired, Victoria... Rules Flip any song/s by The Fall - please make sure Mark E Smith is a defining feature of the track Use at least one 808 element in your track - boom/hats/snare (intro/outro/one-shot whatever) One beat per entry (no beat suites like mine from last week, ahem) Let's keep this shit brief - 2.30 max time limit Outside instruments/synths/drums - allowed Scratches/FX - allowed Own raps allowed, but no outside acapellas Please bring some heat Happy digging/beatmaking!
