This week our challenge comes via Bella Cuts, who very kindly directed us towards DJ Baja Blast - an online content creator who has released hundreds of sample packs on their Gumroad page on a 'Pay What You Want' basis!
Tonight we're going to be using the 'lil taste' version of their 'Word Soup' sample pack - which contains around 100 spoken word samples to use as you like!
From DJ Baja Blast: "I have ripped and processed quite a few tapes over the past couple of years, and have been releasing lil packs over the past couple of months. I focused mostly on complete phrases in those packs, but I also have a larrrrge collection of individual words, all labelled for easy searching. There are > 2500 Words(ish)... (some are short phrases) in the main pack. This one is a smaller sample version if you don't wanna Commit to a ~500mb download. It has ~ 100 samples."
To get the samples, choose "Word Soup (lil' taste)" on the right hand side of the screen, enter $0, click 'Add To Cart' and check out using your email address.
This week's challenge is to use at least three of the samples, plus any other sounds, samples and effect that you like, to make a track of ± 2 minutes long.
Upload your track here by 20:30 CEST. (Please upload your track tonight in MP3! Ivy's in a place with a terrible internet connection at the moment and MP3 would be much easier for her to upload to our Soundcloud playlist).
