Exile – Zip Disks & Floppies (Album Stream)

Early this morning, producer and MPC whisperer Exile dropped his latest instrumental project, Zip Disks & Floppies, which was recorded entirely on his outdated but faithful MPC 2000 XL.

Exile on the project:

WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD, BEFORE THE INTERNET, BEFORE THE EXISTENCE OF STATE OF THE ART BEAT MAKING PROGRAMS THAT QUANTIZE OR ADD EFFECTS, MY FIRST BEAT WAS CONCEIVED USING TWO TAPE DECKS AND A TURNTABLE, FOLLOWED WITH BEATS FROM A SINGLE PUSH BUTTON SAMPLER AND 4-TRACK, PROGRESSIVELY MOVING ON UP TO A ROLAND MS1, AND OF COURSE THE MPC 2000. STACKS UPON STACKS OF FLOPPY DISKS SAVED MY BEATS, SOMETIMES EVEN USING 2-6 FLOPPIES FOR ONE BEAT. NOW MY BEATS ARE CREATED USING A A MPC 2000 XL AND A ZIP DRIVE CAPABLE OF HOLDING UP TO 15 BEATS, BUT WITH ONLY 10 LEFT I’M LEFT WITH A PROMISE TO MYSELF THAT IT IS TIME TO UPGRADE TO A NEW MACHINE TO MAKE BEATS. THESE BEATS ARE JOINTS I HAD LAYING AROUND THAT WERE NEVER USED, BUT ITS STILL HEAT. BANG THESE BEATS LOUD AS WE NEAR THE END OF MY BEATS ON THE MPC 2000 XL.//////?
