Possessed

By miraclemiles on December 11, 2016 10:46 pm

So I missed my upload last week. Was scrambling at last minute, then what I thought would be a quick but serious conversation with the wife turned into ... something else entirely that kind of bummed me out and pushed the deadline. Damn, but oh well, the beat goes on another week. This week got together with bassist Ethan, who played on a couple of my recent songs, on Thursday night for jam. All the bass and the main section drum parts came out of that jam. We had just listened to some Liquid Liquid before playing, so some inspiration there perhaps. Then on Saturday night I got together with License, who was doing Weekly Beats for the first part of the year before dropping out. He brought over his Arturia Micro Brute and Korg Volca FM and laid down a lot of fun sound on top of the bass and drums, while I did some vocoded singing which is in here as well. Some fun sounds here, a groove I like, and best of all it came out of live sessions with friends, which is way more fun than me alone in the basement. I randomly started singing "You are possessed by the god of the drums" while jamming (and uncontrollably laughing at that lyric at same time -- it appears in the middle section of song), so that's where title comes from.

Yeah some seriously awesome sounds on display here and that is a sick groove.  Sucks to miss a week but you definitely bounced back in style.

amazing stuff... could well be one of them psychedelic rock tracks from the 70s if only it would be 15-20 minutes long wink

Awesome collaboration, too bad you missed last week, I missed one a few weeks back, had the track done but forgot to upload it, lots of great sounds on this and a nice groove, I was looking at buying a used microbrute this week, might have to get an early x-mas present

Awesome, thanks, that's cool observation, love me some old psych jams.I think a longer version could be a lot of fun, especially live if we could pull that off. I've been trying to keep these weekly beats short, which is a fun constraint to work in.

Nice, thanks. yeah was hard to miss, but oh well. I'm really tempted to get microbrute as well. Did you get one? So many cool synths out there now.
