The soundtrack of my childhood, in order of appearance:
– Random folk & childrens songs
– Chopin & Louis Armstrong
– Euro Disco, especially british & italian
– Music of Commodore 64 games
– Hard rock, played by dudes in leather pants
– Mike Jackson & The Beatles
OUTLAWLESS is category five kind of fun.
It’s more tough than slick. Perhaps played by fellas in black leather pants, instead of pink ones.
Some make-up yes, but only black eyeliner. And a big hair. Not huge, only big.
THE NIGHT OF THE ANALOG ASSASSIN is chiptune horror music.
Or “horror music”, I should say. It’s not really very terrifying. It’s like a modern horror movie that’s pretty fun, with a few jump scares. Something that doesn’t actually get under your skin.
It’s just as far away from truly horrifying movies as those movies are from real life horrors.
You know, real life horrors like running out of toilet paper or embarrasing yourself publicly. Or train ride without internet or not optimally chilled white wine.
Or dentists appointment, lengthy struggle to get your wisdom tooth removed & the following discomfort for daze.
There’s your true horror. Third world style.
Yep, you read it. TAKING IT EASY was the first tune I made in 2020, right after my holiday break.
As the title suggests, what it came to producing a piece of music, I decided to take it very easy. No need to construct an immortal musical masterpiece right away.
So, what you’ve got here is some harmless “Good Old Entertainment Music”, played by an eclectic combo of instruments.
Coming up at kongano.com, some time in this century: An Immortal Musical Masterpiece!
Yep, you read it. JENGA was the last tune I made last year, before the holiday break. That’s the time of the year when yours truly is usually running on fumes, but despite that, I think the tune came out very nicely.
It has an interesting dance-reggae hybrid vibe, which just sort of happened while making it. Little bit of luck, a hefty dose of tenacity, bananas & water. That’s all it takes.
Two negatives make a positive, if you catch my drift.
