WN21 No Buttery Biscuit

Song two from Andrew Huang’s Monthly course done! Here it is. Some retro drum ‘n’ bass action. The theme of the second part of the course is sampling. No drums samples were used in the production of this track. All the percussion are sounds from my kitchen. Some of them have been pitched and tweaked. The bell sound and bass at the beginning also come out of the kitchen. There’s some synths in the middle.

The initial idea for this track came together quite a bit faster than the first one. Turning my microwave into a fuzzy bass is definitely a thing. But it was still a slog in places. I didn’t have nearly as much energy or motivation this week. And the time constraint was a bit shorter. So, I’m really pleased that I managed to get this into the finished the state I have.

Now we’re on to part three, looking at lyric writing, and having a vocal-lead song. I did all the arranging and mixing on the Deluge for track two (only sample chopping and mastering it in Logic), but for this one I expect I’m going to be more on the computer because of the editing involved when working with vocals.
