Hey Everybody! How's it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! I've got some BRAND NEW MUSIC for you all today! An 80s music Katy Perry synth pop inspired beat entitled, "They Call Her Red". Much like my debut single, "Ms. Victoria (There She Goes", it's about a woman, and wait for it - she has red hair! The main body and genesis of this instrumental comes from the 2 layered very 80's sounding synthesizers I used to start it off. It's the same chord progression placed on top of one another, which is arguably my most favourite production technique. I followed the synthesizers up with a incredibly simple bass line, which is a rule I live by! K.I.S.S., KEEP IT SUPER SIMPLE! When it came to choosing which bass patch to use in this instrumental, I REALLY played around with what I had available, I wanted something that didn't feel intrusive but that you also knew was present and there in the beat, it helps that the bass that I chose sounds SUPER BEEFY, REALLY FAT, and in my opinion, that's exactly what this new original composition needed! Once the bass was taken care of, it felt like something was missing, like I could a little more, just to make a sound more full and more complete. I then laid down a two chord progression with an acoustic guitar, and I love how it sounds, it adds that extra kick that is nothing short of beneficial to the instrumental. From there I moved onto the foundation, the backbone of any and every song that exists, the drum kit! With this composition's drum kit and pattern, I wanted to do something that was straight forward but different from what I've produced previously all at the same time, if that makes any sense! I doubled up the kick drum, which came from a hip hop kit in a couple spots, then added a snare drum from a house kit on the 3rd beat of every bar. I think it adds a different dimension to the instrumental so it just isn't super straightforward and predictable with a kick, snare, kick, snare pattern. Lastly, I laid down a shaker pattern that, like everything else in all of my compositions is SUPER SIMPLE and I think adds some good swing and shuffle, it brings the whole instrumental together and completes it. Thanks everybody! Hope you all enjoy this new instrumental composition, and have as much fun listening to and rocking out to this composition because I certainly had a ton of fun creating it. Thanks again everybody! Talk to you all again soon, and if you like what you see and hear, then please SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL to keep up with all my latest releases and goings on!
