Still lurking…..

I was rooting around some of my files today and I came across a couple of songs in production from earlier in 2016 which never got finished.¬† One of them because I just didn’t get round to it, but the other because I was eternally awaiting a bassline from Mat ūüėČ so it kind of got shelved.¬† Anyway I¬†thought I’d post them here so they¬†aren’t forever hidden on my hard drive.

First up, the tentatively titled, Muhgli, inspired by a visit to the curry house of the same name along the curry mile in¬†Manchester.¬† As I emerged from their WCs there was a traditional song playing so when I got home I got out all my hand percussion and recorded a similar beat.¬† Of course it then goes all drum’n’bass after.¬† There would have been quite a bit of work to be done with this, and I really wanted to get an “evolution” theme out hence the stealing of¬†some vocals from an online preacher.¬† Oh the irony of his statements!

Next up, is the working title of “chilled”.¬† Basic structure only, I wanted to get a bassline from Mat and ideally some vocals/guitar from Al but sometimes these things just never come to fruition.¬† Probably one of my most developed pieces in relation to chord progressions, I remember getting some good tips from my piano teacher.¬† I really liked the bridge towards the end which changes to a nice flowing 7/8 time.

Also, my only other finished piece that never made it onto one of the EPs so I’ll re-post.¬† Ectopic Beats.¬† A style of song I’d wanted to do for ages, big doomy riffs and chaotic beats.¬† Really enjoyed this one.

…and that’s the lot…… for the moment……
