By dj someguy on April 24, 2016 6:53 pm

On holidays, so making music with phones and tablets.
Therefore I have nothing better to offer this week than this stupid, simple song ...

Say what you will, I still think it's cool what can be done with phones and tablets these days.  Nice job using limited resources.

I dig it. Simple and stupid isn't always a bad thing-- just ask the Ramones!

this is awesome that you did this on a phone

Wow. I love the weirdness of this track. It's exactly what the doctor ordered. You may not like the simplicity of it but it can be very effective sometimes, especially in this case. It's the same progression the whole time, yet changes constantly with different instruments. Omar as in Omar S?

Hope your holiday is going swell!

Seriously electroic funky!

Great job with the limited tools, the challenges of keeping up with weekly beats while on vacation, nice progression to the track, despite the simplicity it remains interesting

Funky junkie smile
Simple but danceable!

Indeed, Omar S was my inspiration for this one. I have a lot of records of his, but haven't listened to them in forever. I should probably start doing that again smile

Hope your holiday is going swell!

Thank you thank you thank you!

I played this track recently in a club and it blended it quite well. Had to work a bit on the sound while mixing it in, but people seemed to like it. So me happy smile

This Detroit-esque inmediate infectious groove made me think of Bel Biv Devoe for no reason wink

Sometimes simplicity is quite more powerful than complicated buildups and arrangements. That's the techno energy I love ( and never get myself ).

Indeed, Belgians do it better smile

Yeah you definitely should. Omar's music sounds amazing every time it's played. It seriously never loses flavor. Have you gotten a chance to listen to his new album?
