Day 80: Sweet Cut


Some of you may remember I talked a while back about writing a series of posts following the progress of a remix I was going to work on. Well typically all that went out the window, and I have started two whole different songs since then.

What seems to happen is this, I start something, get all over excited about it, then read a bit more from the Dance Music Manual, start meddling with a new idea, then get all distracted and enthusiastic about that, repeat...

So this brings me on to today's distraction. After yesterdays experiments with 'Analog' I started forming the fundamentals of a track from it. Then I dabbled with some acappellas I had lying around.

The more I listened to it, the more I got in to it... and, well, to cut a long story short I somehow seem to have created the nearest thing yet to an actual proper tune!

My sound card is a bit shit, and I've not reached the chapter about mixing down yet, so it's still brash and unpolished... but I'm quite impressed with it, even if I do say so myself.

I actually have one or two friends that work in Studios, so might pull a favour to see if I can get it properly mixed and levelled, you know for a laff.

In the meantime, have a listen and see what you think:
