Valley Skate Night

By miraclemiles on December 17, 2018 12:01 am

The miracle tonight on 242nd and Roller Derby Lane: It’s all-ages skate night at the Valley Roller Rink!! Lace those skates up tight, let’s go! Start out slow. Nice and steady, that’s it. Come on, come on, we got this!
Making of this little skate jam: a Mininova into Kaoss Pad synth jam to start things off this week, and start the track. Some additional synth tracks and base track from the new Ableton Singularities pack. It started getting funkier than I thought, so I went with it. Always following the funk I say. Three drum tracks, some synth drums, Linn samples and Ableton’s Jazz kit, because I can’t stop won’t stop with the drums. Couple Mininova vocoder tracks for some glitter on the skates.

If only the stuff they played at the rinks when I was skating was this good! The vocoder is super sprøde.

I'm backwards skating slaloming through the little orange cones (in my mind). The bass line is super infections funky. Nice tight groove!

Love the description to this track, I used to love going to the roller rink as a kid, drums sound great and you can never ignore the funk, have to go with it.

"Always following the funk I say", words to live by if you like music, but also if you like cheese (trust me!)

I've huh, never learned to skate, but I'd be game if they played this in the rink big_smile very nice grooves all around!

Always following the funk is a good life philosophy and you've followed it to a delightfully funky place here.  This would be the most fabulous roller rink ever.

Love the combo of the head-nodder beat with that funky bassline.  I was always falling on my ace when attempting to skate but this one would have at least made it a better experience smile
