Just recently I received some very hot preview tunes off the soon to be released “The Great Anything“ by Paolo Apollo Negri. They came courtesy of my very good friends over at “Hammondbeat” records.
So what has this got to do with this non music blog ?
The answer to that is simple. I love this kind of music and I wanted to lend my support with a spot of promotion. The trick however was in making the big up for the new album not seem out of place with what I normally post. To that end Kahlil from Hammondbeat very kindly let me include a sample from “Bolly Funk” to act as soundtrack to the video above. It demonstrates some new texture loops I am making available. I get a great soundtrack to play with, and Paulo and the album get to reach a few extra ears – To quote Hot Chocolate: “Everyone’s a winner baby”.
I also had a little bit of fun when creating the above video. The sliding window effects are custom xml effects I’d created for the now very aged Movie Maker 2 on windows XP. This was made possible by the PIP+ plug-in that was developed by RehanFX.org. A development peak was reached back in October 2008 for the plug-in. Sadly for reasons unknown to myself the plug-in never did make it to a final general release. The sliding windows therefore give just a hint at what might have been possible.
So please feel free to download the full resolution loops and use them in your own non commercial projects. They are WMV9 encoded AVI files so should work just fine within Windows Movie Maker. And if you like the sizzling groove of “Bolly Funk” be sure to visit www.hammondbeat.com for the very latest info
