the beat for ndugu resembles his style, at least. he did play a lot of linear stuff.

not sure if this is supposed to be based off of a recording he did though. i don't recognize it.

4 bars of one of the harvey mason beats on 606. plausibly something he would play, but not distinctly him.

...but I don't always see the resemblance. like, there were 2 beats for harvey mason, and i thought at least one of them would sound like chameleon, or another song he's famous for. But they left me scratching my head.

even recreated this one with 606 sounds (one of the machines covered in the book). sounds cool, but it doesn't remind me harvey mason.

does anyone recognize this?

there's a whole section with beats "in the style of" famous drummers. and not just the household names. fuckin harvey mason and ndugu chanceler!

a book that lives up to its title. notations for stereotypical beats of many genres. most drummers will know these patterns already, but they aren't the target audience.

the backgrounds from shining force 2 look deliberately less cartoony.

reminds me of that vaporwave gimmick, where every scene suddenly looks mysterious when you take people out of the foreground.

so much work goes into game backgrounds, but you aren't meant to notice them.

it says "zombies attack" but I recognize my home state of NJ when I see it.

some people really took sim city 2000 seriously. in awe at this
