Vangelis Sound from the Little Phatty, via mik300z of YouTube

Like Vangelis?  So do I.  Recently YouTube user mik300z put up an excellent video showcasing a Little Phatty emulating the classic Vangelis sound made on the Yamaha CS80.  If you're a Blade Runner fan, you'll love this.  Since he go so many replies, he even recreates the patch so you can make your own at home.  Check it out!  And while you're at it, why not head over to his YouTube page or one of the video pages and thank him?

that girl with dark eyes-- Edgy 80s Sounds from a One-Woman Operation

that girl with dark eyes, AKA Tiffany Sotomayor, is a great synthy singer-songwriter out of San Francisco/ Barcelona.  I received an email about her a week ago and am finally getting this post I wanted up now.  A couple of my favorites of her tracks from her SoundCloud include "Hey Baby" and "Balloon".  "Hey Baby" features some great Chromeo-esque leads and crisp beats.  "Balloon" features some 80s styling, pad stabs, and a warm grumbly bass.  Great stuff.

Check out all the tracks from her recent digital release below.  I'm really excited to hear what she comes up with next, so keep an eye out for more in the new year.
