My favourite so far this 50/90
Started with the bassline - a friend gave me his old bass a few months back and I've not actually used it to record anything yet. I don't have a bass amp - in fact I barely have a guitar amp, just a cheap little practice amp - so was expecting it to sound pretty terrible but I actually don't think the bass sounds too bad.
Found the clip of a guy saying "talk" in ableton's samples bank and played around with it, I liked the idea of it as an echoing one word hook. Then I grabbed a sample of a horn section, chopped a tiny bit out of it and stretched it to about 8 times it's original length to get that long, one note horn swell, and then messed around with the pitch a bit.
Wanted to make a dancefloor banger about mental health, but the lyrics weren't coming to me, in the end I liked the idea of keeping the lyrics sparse and dropping in a clip from a therapist's youtube video.
yeah we should talk,
It will never get better if you don't open up so just...
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
