Not sure if there’s anyone into weirder-style rap tunes around here, but thought I’d share this piece from my psyche/hiphop/experimental group Grey Yard as it’s all generated from scratch via hardware synthesis. Has a broken, distorted video clip accompanying it.

All the sounds you hear (besides vocals) originate from hardware and were recorded in real-time (i.e. no midi sequencing): the drums are from a Bass Station 2 (sampled into an Ableton drum rack and finger-drummed using a Midi Fighter 3D), main pads and rhodes from a Nord Lead 2, additional stabs and “twinkly” bits (hard-panned in the verses) are OP1. All the chopped vocals were phrases sampled into the OP1 drum sampler and pitched around. The solo in the final chorus is the BS2 again.
Hope some people get a kick out of it! Got a full EP coming out in November and there's heeeeaps of OP1 across it, so will share it here if people are interested
