TB8S – “Bookmarks”

We played some TB8S on Volume 103 of the WOTT Music podcast but haven’t specifically called them out here on the site. If you are unfamiliar, this is an electronic undertaking that combines original synths and beats with samples from old commercials.

In this newest release, the “Bookmarks” single, the source material is culled from a 1990’s Life Savers commercial, a 1973 See ‘n’ Say commercial and a 1980 Apple commercial. It’s extremely fascinating to have the source materials linked in the description of the release as you can dive deeper to hear where each piece was extracted and manipulated into the new compositions.

The music itself is hypnotic and vintage feeling, an understandable vibe considering the elements that created it.
