Rave reverse

By laguna on August 28, 2016 11:57 pm

This whole week I've had family visiting, so NO TIME for music whatsoever. That being said, tomorrow I'll be going back to work, so in my incoming commute trip I was hearing some 90's rave anthems, and wanted to take some of those sounds outside the "party all night" context.

In particular, the main pad sound comes from here (ahh, those tracks from my childhood) though this is the remix I've used, but you could make a rough idea of what tracks I've been banging in my car this afternoon smile

So when I get to my "worktime" home, and starting roughly 3 hours before the deadline, that's what I've accomplished. I know it's not very creative and quite monotonous indeed. I had a lot of other elements in my head, but I think it should wait 'till I have some time for a proper rework.

Those nineties pads are super cool IMHO. The drum break is me lousily playing a real drum set. Thanks to Ableton and its audio warp technology you could be listening to it, because my original timing sucks big time.

Here's my (poorly imagined) arrangement. 4 tracks, 3 FX sends. I hope to make it better next time

In the meantime, I'll sure be banging your tracks really loud smile

P.S.: Not really the mix I used (this one's weaker) but this one had the pads

Thanks Abludo! They're not exactly mine, and you posted before I submit the whole story, so here you could find where did I found such rave treasures.

I'm sorry that mix is not the one with the proper chords... I remember that the videoclip had a guy with a hat and a girl with a white top... No trace on Youtube yet smile

They have still been used well and the effects you've used make them unique. May be simple but I don't think it's as bad as you make it out to be smile

Well, thanks mate! Pretty much apprecciated smile

I think you could relate to that uneasy feeling of "rushing" something which you would have loved to develop further (at least inside your head)

Nice I enjoyed this, I was on a 90's feel with my pads this week as well, nice to see the praga khan clip, I think I have the 12" of that one, classic sounds

Well, in fact I'm a terribly mediocre drummer / finger drummer which enjoys some sampling of his own stuff. There's a rehearsal space just bare 20 minutes walking from my home in Madrid, and in some weekdays is really cheap to go there, rent a good room with a good set and practice. I've lost some interest since I don't actually know anyone local interested in my kind of production but yeah, is really fun!!

Nice it definitely has the 90s sound in the chord progression.  A wavy hypnotic feel to it smile
