This has been probably my busiest week this year so far, so almost zero time for music.
I'm indeed working right know, but I managed to give slight retouches to an "oldschool" sampling piece I built using a hardware sampler (no wave display, no external editors) and a small sketch sequenced on Linux's Seq24. Everything was made pretty much "like it was '88", and then dumped into Ableton for final mixing and mastering.
Sampled Ensoniq EPS-16+ drums and a vinyl chop of a CLEARLY IDENTIFIABLE sample of the British R'n'B band Loose Ends performing "So where are you" on their homonimous album.
Hear the track, it's dope:
I really thought I wouldn't be posting this one to WB because I'm not sure it's "fair" to take such long sample. However, sincerely this week I hadn't anything more to offer. I'd happily release this (along with a few others) as remixes instead of Laguna's tracks... My sampling heart still has a special spot for clearly well known chops used in a new context (I've got some obvious Cat Stevens and Carole King in my hard drive, waiting).
I'd love to hear your thoughts and I hope you're ok with me bending the sampling policy a little bit. I tried to make it, if not that original, at least nice enough.
Well, too much rambling. I must go back to work...
Deepest respect and love out there to those of you releasing truly original music for 42 weeks in a row !!!
