Do Not Mess With My Weekend

Do Not Mess With My Weekend

Liner Notes: 

LOL weekends are sacred. I refuse to work overtime during them. I refuse to commit to things that fall on weekends.
I'm the typical "my job sucks" kind of person, and I usually CRAWL into the weekends from the stress and teeth-gratingly monotony and pointlessness of my day-to-day.
So when Fridays hit after work, I literally feel a physical shift.
This song started out as some blippy drums that you hear in the beginning, then the sawy bass. I kept finding sounds to add, then that little main riff was conjured up. Really simple riff. Just built it up and wanted that wall-of-sound thing going on.
I was listening back, and wondered if I could find any vocal samples that could go somewhere here. I found one that was titled "all weekend", which is the pitched up vocal you hear.
As the song got meaner and meaner, I thought about the vocal sample and meanness...what would make me 'mean' about the weekend?? Well...if someone took my weekend and messed with it...made me do something I don't wanna do with my weekend time.
That...that would be a mistake.
This song sounds like what my face would be doing if someone messed with my weekend!!!

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh, I really enjoyed this. The "weekend" sample was fun. Nice beat, great groove. Very listenable. Smile

Hee hee - I totally hear you on this. Weekends are when I catch up on sleep and do the things I no longer have time for during the week.

This is beautifully put together with a fine ear for how different sounds and timbres will best fit together. Really enjoyable listen.
