A Child Of The 80's Vol. 1

Waynebo

The title of this EP describes me. I went to middle school, high school, and college in the 80’s. Everything I learned about being cool, I learned in the 80’s. My taste in music was firmly established in the 80’s. And, most importantly, I began writing and producing my own music in the 80’s.

I am a child of the 80’s.

As you know, over the last few years 80’s music has seen a bit of resurgence in popularity. Synthwave has gotten the lion’s share of that attention. So much so that when you say “80’s music”, that’s the immediate sonic reference that people get. I always enjoyed that style, but it isn’t what influenced me. My biggest influence was the pop funk that came out of Minneapolis in the early 80’s. It shapes my musical tastes to this day and this EP is my tribute to what those cats did back then.

2 Stankin' Minutes (The Prequel)

Waynebo

“2 Stankin Minutes (The Prequel)” is an EP of 3 distinctly different grooves – each roughly 2 minutes long - inspired by the funk & pop of the early 80’s.

Those who follow me know I’ve been focused on house and electronic styles for the past few years. But if you’ll lend me 2 Stankin Minutes of your time, I’d like to introduce you to another side of me as a musician.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, 80’s music is back in style. Soon I will join the party with my EP “A Child Of The 80’s Vol. 1”. 4 tracks of 80’s-flavored instrumental funk-pop. But before I drop that EP, I wanted to introduce y’all to my funk side. I’ve been making music since the 80’s, so everything has come full-circle for me. This is just the warm-up.

“2 Stankin Minutes (The Prequel)” is an EP of 3 distinctly different grooves – each roughly 2 minutes long - inspired by the funk & pop of the early 80’s. In contrast to the fully developed compositions on “A Child Of The 80’s Vol. 1”, 2 Stankin Minutes just hits you with the grooves. The Minneapolis influence is obvious and intentional. I had a lot of fun doing these tracks and I hope the energy makes you feel as good as it makes me feel.

Produced, Mixed & Mastered by Waynebo for Exodus Music All instruments played by Waynebo

In My Natural Habitat

Waynebo

A fun, instrumental funk jam.

Even though I love and create in electronic genres, I started my musical journey in funk. 1980's Minneapolis-inspired instrumental pop-funk will always be a part of who I am as a musician. I had a lot of fun doing this song. This is just the tip of the iceberg. More funk is coming soon. Enjoy!

The Maestro's Prologue

Electric Maestro

End the summer and kickoff the autumn season with some smooth dance vibes. Cool, jazzy chords swim beneath a melody built with a blend of analog synths & woodwind samples bouncing on top of a classic 4-on-the-floor house beat. Old-school synth bass adds just a touch of funk to the shine of this beautiful track.

Out Of Nowhere

Electric Maestro

I was in the middle of working on another track when I pulled up the new SRX Electric Piano plug-in from Roland Cloud. I had just added it to my collection that day and wanted to hear how it compared to my other rhodes plug-ins.I was playing along with the track and just going through the patches. When I reached the patch your hear in this track, inspiration interrupted. I suddenly pressed stop and out of nowhere I started playing the keyboard line that forms the backbone of this track. It was like that patch was made for this song. I immediately opened a new project, dropped in about 4 minutes of 4-on-the-floor kick drum @ 120 bpm and started playing. A couple of hours later, I was done and "Out Of Nowhere" was finished. I came back later and added the intro and outro of the extended version. Enjoy!
