Just Destroy It

By Robroy on February 23, 2020 1:57 pm

Wasn't as inspired this week, probably like anybody involved in music I was shocked and saddened by Andrew Weatherall's passing. It actually affected me a lot more than I expected and spent a lot of the week listening back to his tracks and also interviews. For any producer there is so much insight in them, it's not from a 'here's how to use a compressor' but more from an outlook and approach.

I'd experimented with a  few tracks drawing on that, but nothing I was sufficiently happy with. On this I'm actually happy with the riff in the chorus but couldn't manage to build it out or arrange it in a way to really enhance that. I do think there is something in it, so no doubt I'll come back to it. I had one track I'm just about to release which came from a track I did on WB in 2014 which I had a nagging suspicion could be something, it's just taken this long for me to get it there.

The title comes from the advice given to Weatherall by Primal Scream's drummer when he approached the remix that would become the seminal Loaded but bear little resemblance to the original.

Pretty good moments in this one, for sure. The "pad/keys" moment is great.

Weatherall was a true innovator. He was one of the first dub artists I listened, during his work in the Sabres of Paradise. Rest in Peace
