Business Class

By miraclemiles on October 7, 2018 8:58 pm

Nothing but the best, that's how I roll. This song is about flying in business class as an revolutionary smuggler. Smuggler of tasty beats.
Actually, maybe not. I did make up some lyrics for this about flying in business class and having champagne. Ok to fantasize a little. Once again, cannot really understand any of these lyrics, but they provide some flavor. Vocals done on the Novation Mininova vocoder. All the rest of the sounds in this are from Pocket Operator samples, packaged and released in super fun pack of Ableton Live instruments: https://www.afrodjmac.com/blog/smoothpocketoperators.
I like that most of these samples sit nicely in their own tight frequency range, so I can layer and layer, then add some more, which I'm fond of doing. One track is just randomly pounding Push pads with all the fingers, which is also very fun.

You just hijacked my complete attention. Richly textured, but, as you said, with each element in its proper place.

Some really awesome fat sounds and beats here.  The vocoder works great for this.  Those gifs are both perfect also.

great appropriation of the Pocket Operators!  Those things are too fun.  You are right, all the samples were in different ranges so they stacked very neatly.  please enjoy your complimentary drinks and hot towel!
