Leftovers for Dinner

By license on January 19, 2020 12:04 am

All Saturday morning I edited a digitization of a 4-track tape, which was filled over the course of 4 years. Naturally, some of that went into this week's beat. So here's a few bars' worth of a Nanoloop Mono jam from said tape, flipped across 3 tracks in Renoise, with some on/off send automation to the hardware reverb. And there you have it, short and goofy.

The original loops were already fairly kooky but I doubled the BPM. I'm glad you liked the bass part; I almost felt like that could have been its own track but at that point I just wanted to wrap it up.

Ha, yeah, it might be a little bit of overload! The loops were clicky already and I think layering them, at different speeds and offsets, with the sample interpolation turned off, was a bit much at times!

Really like everything in this track except for its short length. Glitchy trills and those kicks are unreal!

miau I appreciate your comment about the length too. As I was making this, tried to make the drums sound interesting and flow but change between patterns, since my 2018 and 2016 submissions were mostly pretty repetitive and amorphous rather than having real transitions. When I hit the second part I felt like I had hit a turning point where it was starting to get longer, but to my chagrin it still clocked in under 2 minutes. So I need to figure out how to work at a higher level while keeping things interesting. Oh well, probably better to do something short and left wanting for more than the other way around smile

LOL I love this

Tasty glitchy leftovers, nice starting groove and I like that full bass drops in and its gets madder. Chaotic fun, but not too much chaos, just right. Love hearing that this was 4 track discovery, digging in the old archives can be fun. After reading the james bond comment, I totally thought of that too on that last little guitar sounding bit in the end!

Thanks man! Yeah I don't dig through the archives often enough, decided to take a page out of your book and I think I'll be doing it more this year. Haha, that cracks me up, I felt like I was ripping off something but I couldn't put my finger on it - somehow that riff reminds me of that corner store downtown with the yellow awning.

i generally don't like leftovers for dinner, but i do like this! smile

January 26, 2020 11:24 am

Oooh, yeah, I could see some action going down at that corner store when I hear this for sure!

I don't understand anything you said in the description (over my head), but a great track! Very cool production and glitch elements.  Like the hyper pacing!
