This majestic Sumsun instrumental comes from the incredible Sample Based Life Vol.1 endeavor (artwork above), which has gathered over 30 tracks from a slew of collage/tape-music/lo-fi beat producers including the likes of Dog Bite, Ackryte, and Grass Mirror, among others. The concept for the release is the brainchild of Forrest Reiff (a.k.a. Off Balance Atlas), who had the idea to share his sample sources with fellow producers and see what they came up with. Looks like he had no trouble getting his cohorts to take part, and the results of the experiment appear to be just as diverse as the list of contributors. Sample Based Life Vol.1 is available as a “name your own price” download over at the project’s Bandcamp, and those who contribute $8-$10 to the cause will receive a hand-dubbed cassette of the album courtesy of Mr. Reiff himself. We suggest checking out Sumsun’s sole contribution to the compilation below before fully diving into the other 31 static-drenched, blissful beats that make up Sample Based Life.
