Heck yeah.

INSANITEETTITILAT is the most fun I’ve had for a while. In the field of producing a tune, that is.

Sometimes it’s fun to go all in, defy the laws of nature and good taste and make something like this.

The tune features my super secret technique of “synthesized random cloning”. Succees number 3, if I’m not mistaken.

Me lucky bugger.

Late & early.

YOU KNOW IM HERE is autumn pop. It’s more melancholic than oh-so-happy. I think the time of the season is suitable for the tune, because this year the winter really hasn’t come at all. At this very moment I’m hearing the rain hitting the window ledge.

The tune is presented in a classical fashion, with mostly organic instruments. Ok, there’s the moog bass, but in the golden age of pop it used to be a regular guest.

Like, in the golden age of TV Talk Shows, Harvey Pekar used to be a regular guest.

“Bob and Harv’s Comics”. I must have that.

No explanation needed.

So, I was producing this tune… Minding my own business… Building a horizontal weave… And some pulsing, you gotta have that…

Adding drums… Making ’em sound really airy… Digging it…

Taking my time to listen the whole thing again and again…

“This is starting to sound like Ligeti in space”, I thought.


The best I can.

“Study more about latin rhythms” has been on my ToDoList for a quite some time. For like several years, to be honest…

So much to do… So much interesting stuff to dive into… And so little time… Or rather, so much of that precious time must be sacrificed for doing laundry, walking & breathing at the same time and video games…

So let this be a reminder, me. Study that stuff! Mambo, rumba, salsa, samba, tango, merengue, mariachi and cha-cha-cha. And when you’re done, study charanga, ranchera, vals criollo, twoubadou, bachata and Stan Getz.

Oliver doesn’t.

In the meantime, here’s some poppy, kinda latinic/caribbean stuff: EVENING AT LUPES.

I hope they serve mojitos there, ‘cos they are delicious!
