Did I time it right? Are we conveniently at a collaboration Thursday again? SCORE.
Friend on the street, friends on the beat, beat friends.
Jon provided the base drum sounds during a visit to Denton. Amazing what you can do with only a single sm57 overhead. I have gotten so much mileage out of these sounds, sometimes I want to scrap every other drum sample I have. I also love using my fingers to recreate what it takes homedude an entire body and a fair amount of stinky sweat to pull off.
This track almost made it onto the Old Town Acid EP, but I felt it really went with the vibe of this collection , so here it is.
MPC and x0xb0x straight to 1/4″ reels via Mackie mixer and LXP-1 on send.
Chuck originally called this one “Day in the life of a hypnotist”.
