Other than Herbie’s shirt, this might be the hippest thing to ever air on a late night talk show. Sure, they don’t really have a chance to stretch, but these musical spots are usually confined to 3-4 minutes.
OK, enough with the dorky mathematical fusion and spacey jazz loops. I can’t let things get totally lame around here, so it’s time to bring back some rock. I don’t want Lemmy to cancel his yearly subscription.
For today’s loop, I recorded the drums as dry as possible…. which means I brought out the t-shirts again and covered up half of the snare. I recorded this with the intention of distorting it during the mix… and a ringy snare with distortion can sometimes sound like fingernails on a chalkboard. My mix sounds more like fingernails on a dry erase board.
You might recognize these drums from the amazing intro music to my latest and shameless self-promotional video.
