Participating in Weekly Beats has been one of the best musical experiences I have ever had. I finally learned some skills I have wanted to learn for years, and the deadlines pushed me to actually finish things. Looking forward to what comes next on this musical journey. For this week I wanted an end of the year song, to put a nice exclamation point on this whole year of music making and ... life. Kind of lofty ambition for a week. So this is kind of that, but really it's just another song I created in a week. Not as good as some weeks, better than others. Had a bunch of ideas and decided to keep ... a bunch of them in here. Wanted a party song, I think. So I think the chaos in here is like a party, and it's a song I want to hear at a party, but probably just the party that's in my head . Had one night of introspective and meaningful vocal attempts, then some just some party feel-good vocals. Both were just off the cuff, and kept some of both in here. Writing lyrics and figuring out vocals is a goal for next year. Had fun doing more vinyl scratching and sampling too. There's some drum and bass sounds from Korg Gadget app, some Afro DJ Mac packs I've used throughout the year, and some good old Ableton instruments. chopped and replayed. Vocals processed with VocalSynth plugin. Guitar by dear friend and collaborator AM Faulks who has made many of my songs this year something special.
