Hey Everybody! How's it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! Some SUPER smooth, cool breeze kind of music for you all today! The main genesis of this instrumental is my love of professional wrestling, my love of what is called sports entertainment. Yes, yes, I love professional wrestling. I wanted to become a pro wrestler at one point in my life, but unfortunately I severely injured both my knees, so that put the breaks on me stepping into the squared circle. With that said, I figured I would channel my love of pro wrestling and sports entertainment into an original instrumental composition, inspired by the "King of Strong Style", the Japanese superstar, Shinsuke Nakamura! Like all my other tracks, I wrote, produced, and performed all the elements in this beat. The real big point in composing this piece was a "what if" question I posed to myself, "what if Shinsuke Nakamura were to ever turn heel. For those of you who don't know what "heel" means in terms of pro wrestling, it means bad guy or villain character. So there was that, then as I kept building, it started to also sound like the police procedural or "cop show" themes that I remember hearing growing up in the 90's and 2000's. It has a very smooth, cool sounding strut type feel to it. The synthesizers are a couple of my favourites. They both have the same pattern, and are layered on top of one another. Speaking of layering, I have also used my most favourite drum kit production technique by placing the kick and clap on top of each other, with the slight difference of doubling up on the kick drum in every second bar. Furthermore, the hi hat pattern in this original instrumental adds some bounce, some pep in your step, some shuffle. I just think it's fantastic! I hope you all enjoy it and soak in all the smoother, cooler, almost darker feel of this composition.
