Back in July, MAEKAN sound engineer Elphick Wo (also known by his Producer moniker Delf) returned from a trip to Toronto, where he jammed with fellow producer Tee.
Inspired by his work ethic and sparked by the emotional farewell of leaving back to Hong Kong, Elphick decided one night to make a beat, titled “Is it Goodbye.”Following this initial effort, he decided to embark on a journey of 30 Beats in 30 Days, a common challenge within the beat-making community as a means to nurture consistency, dedication and inspiration.
Produced in the late-night after-hours, this collection of short beats is the result of Delf’s constant pursuit of self-improvement and renewal—a commitment to keeping mental tools sharp that creatives of all disciplines can appreciate. Originally hosted on his Instragram feed, each unique beat is accompanied by a photo.
Enjoy Volume 2 of his efforts below.
Track 11 — lostsoul
I was exploring a powerful sampler in Ableton that rearranges the audio and turns it into a synthesizer. I used that to come up with the pads. After that, everything else fell into place. Here’s a link to the full track I debuted at Boiler Room.
Track 19 — show me the way
This beat was inspired by a certain kind of love I was experiencing. The chord progression I used was a IV-iii-vi, an R&B classic. Another one of my favorite vibes that also made it to Boiler Room.
