My name is William Lamy, I live in France.
I compose hip hop music as Willbe since 1997.
I play drums and various other instruments.
Playing drums and drawing superheroes in my childhood years, I've also been fascinated by the late 80's music styles that used synthesizers and samplers. Above all, I've seen in hip hop music a vast territory of experimentation. You can mix everything you love into it!
In the early 90's, I played dozens of gigs with my college rock band, while getting started with composing my own music on MS-DOS softwares Scream Tracker and Impulse Tracker. Then I got my first modem and took my first contact with the Demoscene community.
Demoscene has been my high school. This is where I learned to craft, adjust, engineer my music, and to share it and to party with awesome friends. It also gave me the ambition to become a graphic and motion designer.
My music has the smell of a computer that executed heavy tasks for days.
It also blinks pixels and generates particles.
Can't wait to play near you.
Listen to my music on major music streaming services
Tunes About Emergency (Drumless)
Drumless version of my 2011 EP, so you can express yourself on drums or MPC finger drumming.
Right Place, Right Time (Drumless)
This is the same EP with all beats removed. Drummer friend, I invite you to play on my music. If you like laid-back grooves based on dirty samples, this is for you.
Tunes About Emergency (2011)
In the continuation of the previous EP, my quest for dirty hip hop beats and warm bass vibes never stops. I play some bass and guitar parts to get the tone even warmer.
Right Place, Right Time (2009)
5 tracks of melodic instrumental hip hop music composed between 2008 and 2009, with live performance in sight, combining animated visuals on stage.
Demoscene Woxx (2008)
My collection of tracks written for Demoscene projects with awesome friends. The music gets way heavier for party purpose, and always get associated with images. I suggest you to see the demos on Youtube.
Watching Demos Can Kill You (2007)
Original sountrack composed for the electronic book "Watching demos can kill you" by Toms4wy3r. This is a fictional story of demomaking combined with mass-hypnosis.
Covering a large period of time between 2001 and 2008, this album shows some efforts in vocal songwriting, while keeping the love for hip hop beats and vintage tones.
This is the last album I've composed with Impulse Tracker. Released for free in the very first days of the year 2000, this instrumental album is charged with dry, minimal, jazzy and dirty hip-hop with no compromise. Like Time Machine, it went through a remix-remaster process to celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2010.
Time Machine (1999)
Composed in 1998 and released in 1999, my first album "Time Machine" was composed with Impulse Tracker and published for free on Internet with 8 downtempo, hiphop and psychadelic tracks and quotes taken from the french version of the movie "Back to the future". The 10th anniversary edition is a remixed and remastered version.
