Shuffle Rouge

By miraclemiles on July 15, 2018 9:04 pm

Love a shuffle beat. This is essentially a remix, or redo of an older song. I took a few of the elements from that song, and built from there, and added some new tracks. Ended up going this direction because I've been wanting to figure out how to perform some of my songs live. Started to cut that old song up and play around with the parts in Live in attempt to learn how to play it live. Still don't know exactly how I will do that, but in the process of working with that old song, decided to do remix for this weeks track. The main instrument in this is the Zeze African stringed instrument, another sample instrument put together by Behr in an Ableton pack. Most of the tracks I have here were created by creating clips then changing the arpeggiator and recording the output, then editing from there. Used arp on parts of the bass as well. Had some fun in the end of song with some vocal sample chops and improvising on the Ableton 64 pad jazz kit. Thanks for listening!

Nice blend of funk and hard to pinpoint world music.  Is the sound that comes in just past the halfway point some sort of heavily treated vocals?  Whatever it is it sounds really cool.

Thank you! Yes, vocoded voice track that was then arepeggiated, recorded the output I think so may have adjusted arp settings in real time. I'll have to try and do that again some time!

Super cool percussions and I love what you did with the vocoder/voice samples, especially at the end it sounded like really funky droids big_smile

The cross-rhythms of the differing arpegiations are really trick. "Out-of-this-World" music for sure! Voice snips add the icing.
