Hip Hop & Rock have gone together since producers could first sample a 1 second guitar stab from a record! I wanted to use the OBX bass sound ever since I first heard it in the early 90′s. With Bass music holding its own right now, I made this track to contribute this union; something I could scratch over, as well as hold its own for the home listener.
I'm excited to give this one out to you guys in anticipation of my next EP on Punchout "Do That Thing" on limited 45 & Digital Release next month. I'm sure you will have as much fun with this track as I did making it. I made this song while teaching in front of the students at the Recording Arts Institute of Sask last fall, my segment on Electronic Music Production with Ableton. While of course it features my traditional Hip Hop Methods: Sampling & Drum Pads, It also has me playing the OBX Sound in Ableton as well as the guitar. While some of you may think this a departure from my usual Soulful & Funk rhythms, any of you who listened to Myself & Factor's Mix/Album 'The Trip Beyond' know that I also love rock & psychedelic music. This track, for me, bridges all those gaps!
