This is an excerpt from a piece that I wrote a few years ago with one of my favorite colaborators, Daniel Blackmoore. This was one of those songs that was inspired by a couple of samples but I needed some initiative to flesh it out. Daniel provided me with motivation and a fresh perspective, but most importantly is that he did this all in a non musical way. He didn’t suggest chord progressions or notes, instead he would say things like “try going up instead of down” or “let’s try it with a totally different instrument”. He was like a real life Oblique Stratagies deck.

Composition, production, engineering, stereo mix
