Yamaoka Yasuhiro - Yeppie's "Euroid" (1999-2003)

Yamaoka Yasuhiro Yeppie's "Euroid"

01. Yet Ain't Hot Tonight
02. Practice of Romance
03. Light Me Up
04. Yet Ain't Hot Tonight 03

It began suddenly at my friend's BBS I used to visit. His idea was called Eurobeat feast, and I decided to make a track for this idea. 2 or 3 hours later, I completed Yet Ain't Hot Tonight. This is not exactly a Eurodance tune, but I uploaded this on the BBS. Unexpectedly, this tune was welcomed, so, I made two more, and called these three Euroid.
4 years later, my friend asked me to make an updated version of Yet Ain't Hot Tonight. In July, Yet Ain't Hot Tonight 03 was totally updated using Orion: music workstation software.

All files composed by Yeppie (Yamaoka Yasuhiro), April-May/1999.
except "Yet Ain't Hot Tonight 03", July/2003.

Yamaoka Yasuhiro - Blind Loops (1999)

Yamaoka Yasuhiro Blind Loops

01. Vacuum Loop
02. Whooper Loop
03. Sleepy Loop

Hammerhead feast began at friend's BBS. Hammerhead is the rhythm machine simulator, but I misunderstood it as a loop player. Because I didn't have it. I started to make these tunes with DigitalPerformer. But I couldn't hear any sound through it while I was working on it. Anyway, the results are unexpectingly interesting to me.

All files combined by Yeppie (Yamaoka Yasuhiro), May/1999.
