Mango Sykkel

By halfbyte on January 19, 2024 1:40 pm

Unfortunately I had to skip last week due to some health issues. This week was a bit busy so again, this is more a sketch that shows the potential.

The name is a nod to the all time classic Mango Drive from Rhythm&Sound, which in term is a remix of Mango Walk.

I don't see this as a sort of reproduction or even remix but more of a study of the spirit and the techniques of the original.

Produced using the Ableton 12 Beta, but hardly using any of the new functionality (I used "strum" for the second guitar-ish synth chord)

It would by quite easy to stretch this to 5-8 minutes with some melodic variations and some proper dub style echo automations but I ran out of time as I won't have much time during the weekend. (Writing this on friday)
