Elijah Lucian & Alex Srur - What's Love

Music: Alex Srur and Elijah Lucian
Vox: Elijah Lucian

Thanks Alex for this beat! I threw some cheezy lyrics on these but I was having some fun with it, just trying things i don't normally do. Will post a final version when it happens! Woo!

:edit: I just uploaded an updated version because i seriously couldn't listen to my off key singing anymore. While I was at it, I put on something that every pop song should have! AUTOTUNE! woo! haha. (just kididng, pop should not have autotune, but that's another discussion altogether. but not kidding about putting it on :P )

Frederick Ingram - Waimoku II (Elijah Lucian Remix)

BG TRACK: Elijah Lucian
BG VOCALS: Elijah Lucian
DRUMS: Tanner Brown (chopped up loop of his playing)

UPDATED VERSION (I will leave the old one up to show what an hour was like)

A song written and sung by Frederick Ingram I took his acapella and went probably a totally differnt way then anybody thought I would but I still think it turned out cool! hope you like it, It's pretty psychedelic. I played the recorder on it, lots of delay effects. My kinda track!!!

p.s. I changed a couple chords, Frederick, I hope thats ok!

DAILY CHALLENGE - Nov, 17, 2010

Lisa DeBenedictis vs Elijah Lucian - Achilles

BG TRACK: Elijah Lucian

For Some reason moody trance/dance stuff has always reminded me of winter, I don't know what it is, maybe it's related to when I first listened to the Slinky Compilations (more slinky) and it's that nostalgia now... hmm, anyways I grabbed a creative commons acapella from and chopped it up. I'm not sure what she's saying haha so just make up your own words. But I will be working with vocals steadily from now on, next, I have some artists lined up, so if you know somebody that wants to take the 1h challenge with me, tell them to shoot me a message. oh and... share and follow me >>

Oasis with swing? hahaha I don't know, starting the day off right in any case! Forgot to put in any drum fills and didn't have time for the final solo, but oh well. that's why it's called 1 hour beats!

DAILY CHALLENGE - Nov 14, 2010


BUSY WEEK! jeez! anyways back with a bang this time. enjoy!

I think this one would be a cool upbeat video game track, it was really flowing this time and i really like the end result! It wasn't the polyrhythm one that i promised but I'll get to that this week.

now on to some real work...

DAILY CHALLENGE - Nov 06, 2010 - 2


in a creative mood today. Thought I would post another in lieu of the many I have missed so far.

DAILY CHALLENGE - Nov 06, 2010


for any musician my age, chiptune would be a big influence even if you dont use it, it's still widely appreciated as a nostalgic type of music, this one doesnt start off chip, but it ends in a chiptune solo courtesy of my new roland GK-3 pickup on my strat. hahaha WOO!

DAILY CHALLENGE - November 01, 2010


wow. ok.. i seriously need to stay on this thing. almost 15 days since the last post thats bad. haha. you're free to yell at me if i dont post something every day.


My name is Elijah Lucian from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

This is my sketchbook.

My 1 Hour Challenge will be to post beats/sketches that I spend no more that - you guessed it - 1 hour on. I'm going to try things I don't usually try. The Challenges will have the dates in the header of the post. The main idea is to capture the raw creativity of the musician, which usually occours during that first hour of "flow"

Part of the daily challenge will be to do specific genres so if you want me to take a stab at a certain style drop me a message. The mixes will be interesting, the productions may be srange, the arrangements may be erotic, who knows what will happen!

I hope to have guest singers and instrumentalists in sometimes too to mix it up. so let me know if you want to come over and take the 1 hour challenge!

Also If any singers/emcees come across this page and one of the beats inspires you, contact me about licensing out final versions of the beats!

my actual productions can be found in the player below or here:
