MUSIC NEWS: Mike Shinoda Releases ‘Dropped Frames, Vol. 3’
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Mike Shinoda has been creating music and art live on Twitch in front of, and in collaboration with, thousands of fans each day. The third instalment, the fourteen-track Dropped Frames, Vol. 3, is out now via his own Kenji Kobayashi Productions (ADA).
Similarly to Vol. 1 and Vol 2., Vol.3 incorporates a range of digital samples, but with more live stream instrumentation than its predecessors.
Shinoda also illustrated the cover art, which was inspired by the Twitch streams, and features an alien-abducted cow. You can purchase various merch items featuring the cover art via his official store HERE.
“The fans have been a part of every track in the Dropped Frames series — watching, commenting, and suggesting the whole way through. Some days, that’s like being the driver of a car with a couple thousand navigators…other days, it’s like piloting a spaceship with a community of eager passengers,” Shinoda explains. “We have a lot of fun on my channel, and I think it shows.”
