beat of the week no.024.Saturday Night Stay-cation
The name of this beat comes from a purposeless mixing of the title of the game Saturday Night Slammasters…and just the word staycation. No real meaning there. Saturday Night Slammasters (if you haven’t heard of it, it is a Capcom wrestling-based fighting game, that features Mike Haggar, who you probably know from Final Fight) was always funny to me because of how thinly veiled the homoeroticism is, even in the title. It just sounds like a bunch of buff dudes in a scary basement getting oiled up and doing poppers. The Japanese version is even worse, it is called Muscle Bomber - The Body Explosion. I find stay-cation funny because when the economy was worse they kept floating this word around to make the economic collapse cute or something.
I put two funny things together.
The music just uses the vocal sample I’ve been using a lot recently. The only thing that may stand out is that I tried to make the reverb on the drums a little more nuanced to help the drums sound a bit more real.
This beat was made with Ableton Live.
