First Lotus

By Tweaklab on June 10, 2018 11:04 pm

This week I wanted to try and make another 90s genre, trip hop.

Growing up I listened to heaps of Massive Attack and Leftfield and it's a genre I really want to see fully come back along with Big Beat. I recorded the bass track myself on the 8-String and it has this groovy octave slide going on. I then cut and looped it for authenticity of the genre smile it didn't get as epic as I hoped but it's definitely capturing the vibe I was aiming for.

Great beat!  Really gets the trip hop flavor going.

The 8 string maybe makes it a little metal, which takes away from the "emptiness" of some trip hop, but I think you ended up with a Tweaklab original mixture of dense and sparse.  Nice!

Love this, way into that bass.

Ah thanks guys! It's definitely a genre I'd love to tackle again, maybe even add some monotone vocals.

Yeah, I'm definitely ripping this off at band practice tonight. That bass sound is theft-worthy. Good heavy sound against a trippy arrangement. Lots of good stuff going on with drums and synths.
