The 64barmusic story

64 bar music history
64barmusic started in 2009 when the friends on got together to create homemade mixes of their own music.

Contributors were only given two rules. Make the song 64 bars long, and at an agreed tempo. After that, they were told to get creative. Anything goes. The idea is to see just how many grooves / angles / styles can be found at a set tempo. And it seems there are lots.

Fast forward to 2011 and there were six 64barchallenge mixes spawned directly from the Ninjatune forum, and a new initiave, the Representz series.

Here’s a little feature that appeared on BBC Wales,

And here is one that appeared on in March 2011 after the fifth album.
