Ryan tweeted about it, they mentioned it on the bombcast, duders across the globe scoured the internet for the hottest, latest bing bong tracks only to come up empty. I want to be a part of the burgeoning bing bong scene, but it turns out that it might be (MIGHT BE) entirely fictional. There have got to be some musical duders out there, whether it's just a hobby or you somehow found your way to this site because you really like Midnight Brown. It's time we ride the first wave of bing bong before it leaves us behind.

The problem is, since the scene has not made its way to the internet yet (because it MIGHT BE fictional) we have to figure out what bing bong sounds like. My idea is for electronic music based around 2 note melodies. A bing, followed by a bong if you will. Electronic, because that's what all the kids are listening to these days. I have something in the works, but am not quite satisfied with it yet.

What does your bing bong sound like? No, that's a bad way to phrase it. Gimme your hot bing bong! No good either. Uh. Just make Ryan's insane machinations a reality, would you?

i'm just now listening to the podcast, so if there's some mention of the musical style already i don't know it yet.

the beat will be the trademark. other instruments will be accentual and help define the style. what about steel drums caribbean style? Maybe a dancehall style snare?

I'll do some thinking, great idea. come on GB, where's your creative skills.

we'll need a wikipedia entry.

oh and we'll need a fashion to go with it. else it won't last ten seconds or get swallowed up by another genre.

Also It needs a DROP.

I put a track together with the ideas in this thread so far. I didn't think about the drop. I did give it some solo bass breakdown, maybe that will help.

I'm uploading to soundcloud now. be a few minutes. i fucked up the end so it ends rather abruptly. it's at 119 bpm, which may be a little slow. you tell me.

Bing Bong lifestyle is similar to being Based. I need something I can cook to.

@LD50: That's some hot bing bong, man. Sounds like some good vintage Fireman.

The Bing Bong lab is open, thanks. It does have some fireman vibe. Which reminds me this is actually around 60 bpms. Since I didn't go four to the floor with the beat, it's running at half the tempo.

Bing Bong is all about the notes they AREN'T playing, man.

Which is basically all of them.

It's just didgeridoo music that the stupid mainstream is eating up. REAL Bing Bong started in the UK club scene in the late 90's and it has polyrhythms n' shit.

You kids and your cheap imitations. Real Bing Bong died that tragic night back in 73, on the Hacienda stage.

This is what I got so far. I had another track, but I feel like that didn't really capture the Bing Bong aesthetic. But now: Hottest Bing Latest Bong.

That is sic B-Bong bro! My favorite bing bong tracks are always a little downtempo like that.

Both of these tracks so far are kickin' #kickin #bingbong

I was talking to a friend of my girlfriends the other day, she's from England. She was tellin me about the polyrhythms. She said they were legendary, and that this song reminded her of them. She said it wasn't a dubstep remix, that it's actually a bing bong track:

I was like pffft whatever. I can see where you're coming from, but that's totally not bing bong. It's about the spaces between the beats. She said they don't talk about it much anymore because the parties they played b bong at got really huge and the cops showed up all the time.

Seriously.

@LD50: Yeah well you can tell her from me, a professional Englishman and bing bong conoisseur, that she doesn't know shit. You make sure she knows it!

Well, some bad shit went down in the 90's and she was laying low.

Naw I'm just kidding bro. Bing Bong is a style of music. It's like a rolling two-tone polyrhythmic electronic music.

It was big in the UK underground scene in the 90's.

I know right? I sat her down and played her my whole collection of Bing Bong records. Then I stopped following her on twitter. She was pissed.

Yet more bing bong! I like where the genre is heading so far.

That's awesome. The voice sample is on fire.

Yeah, totally reminds me of the early Bing Bong, really evocative. All that modern Bing Bong shit can suck it.

What if the world of chip tunes and bing bong collided? It might sound a little something like this. I'm not totally happy with this one, but it's a neat experiment.

I like it. Interesting style mashup. You're great with the melody and I'm a decent beat programmer. We should collaborate and call it "Big Truck".
