Most things are better while or after listening to Sade.

This song sounds nothing like Sade, but I think it may be better thanks to a late night Sade break. Started this on a medium-happy Tuesday night, tapped some bits and pieces out. Decided I like the general bass-line and feel. Thinking that some things I'm creating are sound similar to each other and happy about that because at some point I may want to quit jumping around in style and hone in a sound. Or not.

Then on Friday while enjoying a late night bourbon on the rocks, this took a dark turn. Heavy, distorted, which was cool enough but a whole new direction. Should I go down the dark path? Then I took a break. I listed to a Sade tune that happened to be on my phone at the time. Then I changed directions back to the Tuesday sounds ... but it became a whole new beast, and I'm mostly enjoying it. Vocalized into the Kaoss pad for a while and called it a night. Left myself with lots to edit together this weekend and here's where it landed. The heavy stuff may come back in another week.

It doesn't really sound like Sade, but it does remind me of this remix of Sade! https://soundcloud.com/xlr8r/sade-give-it-up-vin-sol

Nice drumbreaks and that robot voice sound is great...
Joyful!

Yeah the beat on this is sweet.  And the various bloops and bleeps are nice, too!

Haven't listened to Sade for a long time; had to check her out to refresh my memory. This may not be super-sade-ish, but is excellent in it's own right.

Such a nice deep vocoder line bouncing off that beat. Nice job!

Oooh, that's a nice one! Thanks for listening and sharing that. Maybe someday I'll get to officially remix a Sade track, #lifegoals

Thanks, glad you liked! Joyful is nice word to hear. Robo voice was a Vocoder was a vocoder on the Kaoss Pad 3, I think I'll use it again.

I want to use that in an album description: "sweet beats, bloops and bleeps." Those were a fun accident, had an Afro DJ Mac Ableton pack where you could pick sounds for various pads on a drum rack and I hit random notes then twisted the sound chooser knob at recorded that automation, voila, bloops and bleeps for cheap. Thanks for listening!

Thanks, nice to hear that, and glad you got reacquainted with Sade.

Ooh, that's a good one, thanks for that! Is she running to or from the wedding I wonder?
