    Fans of Mike Shinoda's recently-released "Dropped Frames, Vol. 1" are no doubt rejoicing today as the second installment of the "Dropped Frames" trilogy is available now on digital music platforms!


    The set consists of another twelve instrumentals that were all conceived and largely shaped live on daily Twitch livestreams, with Shinoda routinely drawing upon his community members' suggestions for starting points and arrangement ideas - so far, Shinoda has tackled nearly every musical challenge thrown at him, no matter how wild, and the end result naturally puts his versatility on full display. Similarly, the visuals for each "Dropped Frames" release are a collage of drawings made by Shinoda that grow from fans' suggestions.

    In addition to sourcing ideas from his Twitch audience, a few of these tracks include elements taken from sample packs created by some of Shinoda's friends and peers in the wider music community: YouTube sensation Elise Trouw, New York hip-hop legend Money Mark, and Shinoda's own tour drummer, Dan Mayo (whose drums were previously heard on "Channeling, Pt. 1" off "Vol. 1").

    Check the "Dropped Frames, Vol. 2" tracklist here:
    1. "Transitions"
    2. "Crystalinia"
    3. "Julio’s Revenge"
    4. "Isolation Bird" (feat. Money Mark)
    5. "Side Scrolling"
    6. "Dungeon Crawler"
    7. "Dog Whistles"
    8. "Astral" (feat. Elise Trouw)
    9. "Sunset Drive"
    10. "Channeling, Pt. 2" (feat. Dan Mayo)
    11. "King Paprika"
    12. "Party Meow"
    You can check out "Dropped Frames, Vol. 2" now on services such as Spotify and Apple Music. It's likely that a merch drop for this release will be coming soon as well, so keep an eye on Shinoda's online merch store for that.

    Crystalina gave me the chills! Would love more of that sound (90s-style trip hop with a modern day aesthetic).
