I’m the first one to admit that I’m often guilty of stuffing my songs full of stuff. ”Gotta have the 3rd and 4th part, not too much repeats and perhaps another accompanying melody. And Rhodes piano. And a solo part…” And so on.
I genuinely think that less isn’t more, more is more. No matter what kind of music are we dealing with. In this context more doesn’t necessary mean a tune proceeding rapidly from part to part, tons of instruments or overall complexity and lenght. It just means more great sounds, more exciting events and more fun.
Anyway, in YUSNYO I tried to be as minimalistic as possible. You know, make those exciting events to appear in a bigger picture. Since it is a drum ’n bass kind of a tune, there’s mostly, you got it, drums and basses. And some additional percussion. And synthesizers. And Rhodes piano.
