untitled, unmastered II

By orangedrink on October 28, 2016 6:25 pm

I'm on the road!  This is scary, producing and uploading tracks on the road.  I made this in bed in Virginia on the OP-1 and then did a live arrangement while sitting in the passenger seat on my way to Georgia.  I can't tell if the bass line notes are okay or if I need to adjust them a semitone or two.  This is my best attempt to imitate two of my heroes, J Dilla and DJ Shadow.  I wrote the track after going out to dinner with a bunch of old friends and my new husband.  We had such a nice time.  My heart was filled with happiness and love.  I put my fingers in a shape on the OP-1 and that first chord came out.  And then I pitch shifted it down and up to create the chord progression.  I really like the OP-1s compression and quirky sound.  I promise to catch up with everyone's tracks when I get back next week!!

Great vibe and groove--very much digging the OP-1 tonalities in this one.  Very nice melodies, and modulations, too--I really like the tight filtering toward the end.  And, most importantly, congratulations and best wishes on getting married!
