Daily Challenge - Jan 10, 2011 - Hey, Cool Guy!

Hey, Cool Guy!

Loving this one! Made a funky beat, searched for an acapella and stuck it in all in one hour haha.

I was trying to go for a tight minimal sound. I think I got it!

1 Hour Challenge - Chippy 707 - Jan 04, 2012

Chippy 707

Brought the 707 pain to this one. i really love this classic kit. has a nice gritty feel. I'm going to mess with it a bit more in the future.

I like the feel of this one. Ben Pleasance might drop some vocals on this mua, so stay tuned. I'll post a Jan04-2 if he does!

1 Hour Challenge - New Year's Resolution

New Year's Resolution

My resolution is to continue this and do it more than once a month. haha

I will be adding video to the mix once MAYBE twice a month. I really don't like working with video but if there is some kind of response I will continue it. Keep posted for the one hour beat vid!


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:
