Song One: | Bait | Lunar
To start, I wanna thank everyone who downloaded Lunar. It means a lot to me. The following post and others similar to it (as they relate to the project) serve as a way for me to preserve some thoughts as well as share some.
The beat for this song was actually the last one I made for this project. For it, grabbed a piece of a song entitled “tema de cristina.” I’m not sure how many versions exist or if its a standard among the “Big Band” community, but the version I flipped was performed by a Brazilian singer. So, it came complete with cheesy soap opera like dialogue mid-ways through the piece.
As far as the song I choose to remix goes, its called “Bait” (from Wale’s Eleven One Eleven Theory Mixtape. I’ve been a Wale fan since “100 Miles and Running”. In my eyes, he’s still one of the illest rappers doing it.
This song adds contrast to Lunar. It makes my sub rattle.
