It’s been a really good week, as I’ve started my new job as a Healthcare Assistant (which is completely new territory for me…), and I’ve been feeling positive and upbeat all week.
I’ve been going back to some slightly older sounds, mainly from the Chillhop label/Bandcamp (https://chillhop.bandcamp.com/music), and from my degree days… These have inspire me to create some chilled beats and loops of my own.
We went to a Christmas party yesterday, and I spent a lot of time chatting to Richard (https://screamingliketomorrow.bandcamp.com)there, who also makes chilled, ambient experimental sounds (which I really like), so I knew I was going to make some music when I got home. I wanted it to be chilled out but happy, with a good flow.
I enjoyed playing some loops on harmonica, then really going to town with effects and processing in Audition, after all, some echo and amplification really suited the sounds I was making. This afternoon, I’ve gone back to DJ Krush, and his Mo Wax debut, Strictly Turntabilized, and reinterpreted some of the tracks with harmonicas. I like the alternate sounds on the tracks, some more trippy and processed, some more beat driven.
I’ve really enjoyed putting them together, and spent an enjoyable couple of hours playing and mixing the tracks. They make my head nod, and make me smile. Hope you dig them too…
