Here’s a couple of tracks I made this weekend. Well, I say couple but one is a version of an older track called Piedmont.
“Color Adjust” is a long, sprawling piece. Lots of texture and very deep bass pinning down fluttering rhythms. It has an effective key change that I really like, and just sonically I find it quite interesting. Beware there is a lot of dynamics in this track, and its most effective with a subwoofer present.
“Piedmont Version” is a plodding, Moritz Von Oswald inspired remix of an ambient piece I posted here a while ago. I sampled everything from Piedmont in an MPC 4000 and tried to reimagine things a bit. This has sat on my HDD for a while now, but when I listened to it today I really liked it a lot. There’s something nice about it. I like the awkward rhythms and the overall deep feel around everything. Really hazy shit.
Again, all analogue instrumentation – no VSTs or software tricks. In fact the only software used is Logic X, and that’s only to record the stereo outs on the compressor. That’s become quite important to me.
