Hello everybody. I hope you had a great week... Mine wasn't the best, for sure. Too much work and just not enogh time for music. I hadn't any time during the weekend until I got back from a work trip and give some final touches to the mix just less than an hour before the upload deadline.
This one's an hybrid of sorts, and I hope I'm not being too redundant with the whole 90's boom bap vibe.
I chopped the breaks on my Akai s3000xl hardware sampler. They were the first chops I made, and they remained at the hard drive as a simple exercise. Bass comes from some Novation Mininova presets. Didn't had any time to dig into the synthesis side of things... but at least the track was hand-played.
Finally, the (kinda) lead synth line was built using three layers of Waldorf rocket. I used so many layers for such a simple idea basically because I couldn't made my mind about which adjustment to use.
Some "swichhhhhhs" and "swooooooops" also made on the Mininova, goofing around with the filter cutoff.
I'd love to document the process better but I almost didn't have any time to finish the track so I'm at least posting some arrangement view. I think it's a little bit simple and boring.
The name of the track came out because a) I think my "oldschool sampler" stuff keeps sounding a little bit muddy and damped and b) there are some girls out there with dark hearts
Hope you like this one, built around a lot of sketches I couldn't polish since half of it was put together in hotel rooms, away from the studio. Hope to improve next week
WIshing you the best and looking forward to listen to your dope tracks Peace!
