Musician Mike Love Samples Seemingly Random Syllables That Gradually Turn Into Lyrics

In this song by Hawaii-based reggae musician Mike Love, a seemingly random assortment of syllables slowly grows into a song over a period of three minutes. The song takes 12 loops to build before you can discern all of the lyrics plus layers of harmony, incredible considering a single mistake would essentially ruin the entire thing. It’s fun to listen all the way through first without any sort of reference, but if you’re interested, redditor Cybot made this handy chart to better visualize what Love is doing.
