Well, not for good… but for the next week I’ll be spending the majority of my time sitting here and drinking this. Don’t look for any new loops to be posted on this site, but for some highly insightful, tequila-fueled rants and observations, be sure to keep up with me over on Twitter.
As I pack my bags (and 30 SPF sunblock), I leave you with a loop inspired by this guy:
If you happen to be following me via Twitter, then you already know that today’s loop was at the mercy of God… err radio programmers. See, I decided to play a game of sorts. I declared that I’d base my loop off of whatever song was playing on the radio when I started my car. It’s sort of like playing Russian Roulette… without the guns and bullets.
It could have been ugly. Knowing my wife drove the car last, the dial could have been left anywhere. I expected the worst. Some Creed. Perhaps some Carrie Underwood. You just never know. I guess that’s the excitement.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like this song. Actually, I own the album. Produced by The Neptunes and Timabland, it’s a surprisingly funky and soulful debut record for someone who used to look like this.
For this loop, I decided to slow things down just a bit and leave a little more space. The tuning and production is very similar, with lots of high pitched, ringy snare drum and a dash of heavily compressed room sound mixed in.
