Very excited about this track. It's an instrumental cover of the Human League's song "Open Your Heart" from their 1981 album "DARE". I created a drum break inspired by another track off the same album "The Sound of the Crowd".
For my recreation, I used a minimalist approach with only the Arturia Microbrute and a vintage Roland TR-626. All tracks were monophonic, manually played and effected in the mix. The snare sound is brought out with a rich, plate reverb with small room cranked and gated.
The DARE album is very influential to me, in it's production techniques and pure synth sounds. One of the first pop records recorded completely on synthesizers that was a success in that it charted in the US, UK and around the world.
Still finishing up this version but getting close!
