Turnkey Groove - 104bpm

By thisissami on January 15, 2018 12:01 am

Really stoked on this track!! My goal was to give all the different instruments space, and to not have a wall of sound like I am wont to do. I originally was trying to make this be a blues track, but it ended up going in a different direction (while using the blues scale). Super happy with how this groove progresses & evolves. smile I hope you enjoy!!

I really like how the percussion texture gradually gets thicker for the first third. It actually reminds me a lot of the spirit of Herbie Hancock tunes like Chameleon, although clearly in a more electronic vein.

BTW, I took a lot of your advice in the meetup to heart when I'm writing my own tracks. I remember asking a few questions about getting over creative blocks and workflow and have been using it to help me stay productive. I'm 3/3 on Weekly Beats so far so I'm optimistic.
