I felt a change of pace was needed, so I tried my hand at something 150+BPM. Initially it was a straight 4/4 hardcore/gabber piece, but it eventually morphed into this.
Chopped the vocal from an old Dancehall LP I bought this week, sounds a lot like Burro Banton to me but I’m not 100% on that. Burro Banton is the fucking man, so I’ve got no issue crediting him with it regardless of his involvement.
Everything is sequenced on an old, tired MPC4000. Drums are Vermona DRM MK1 through a Voodoo Octave guitar pedal. Percussion is a Roland M-DC 1 processed through a JomoX T-Resonator II and couple of other guitar pedals. Synth pad is the Waldorf MicroWave XT with a Boss RV-1000 on top. Outro synth was Novation Super BassStation and a T.C. Electronics Fireworx. Master channel; Art Pro VLA II compressor and an old Akai PEQ. All recorded to tape for the dancehall feel (and hiss, mainly).
It’s my intention to do a little more work on this (the mix still needs some adjustment), create a b-side and press it under a pseudonym this summer. Download links available this week after I’ve made something close to a final master.
