hey guys, just got done making this track a couple of hours ago, i wanted to go more in the direction of making actual drum’n bass/jungle tracks, but i could never get a good idea down, and i would just have unfinished projects and half-assed attempts. But i think i really like this one and I’m very excited to show it to you all.
I limited my self to 4 tracks only. My thought process was that, it would force me to really consider what to do for each section of my song, and it would leave only the most vital elements, things that would be essential in my eyes, in the song. This basically meant that i wouldn’t get hung up on very minuscule things in the song making process like “which hi hat/cymbal to use?”, or something of that nature.
It’s not 100 percent native though, i use the RX950 plugin for the filtering, and some other stuff, but the core things like the faders in the mix section are normal.
The main inspiration for this track was me trying an interesting spin on songs and artists that i really enjoy, 18 Carat Affair being the main one behind this one, so at the end of the day, i just hope it’s interesting enough or just enjoyable enough for people to dig it.
Tom and Jerry’s “Maximun Style” where it’s use of “Lover To Lover”, by Maxi Anderson, creates a sort of “lounge-jungle” is the type of splicing i really enjoy, so that was also a big influence.
Here’s the XRNI file: 18 Carat Affair 2
There you can take a peak at what i was doing, you can remix it, take samples/instruments, do whatever you please.
As always, if you got any feedback, composition, general mixing, a specific section, or anything of that sort, feel free to share.
I think that’s all i got for now, thanks for taking the time to listen and i hope you enjoy.
