Since recording some snippets of my partners vocals just for a trial (thanks Donna x), and speaking to a couple of customers in my store (two friends massively into Chicage House), I went back to the studio to take the influence of saxophones, Rhodes and Old School Piano riffs and put them into my work. I have always loved the Old School Piano sound, like that from the old Korg M1 synth.
On top of all these old school and housey synth sounds, my passion for drums also played a big part in this track with myself programming the bongos on my Maschine to get a lovely sweet housey groove.
Of course I didn’t want to produce a full on Chicago House track, but take influence from that genre and use it towards the style I am more into. I wanted to produce something more brighter with a happier but funky vibe instead of the usual minimal and dark techy stuff that is floating around these days. I am thinking summer 2010 here, let me know what you think. Feedback appreciated and any labels welcome to sign it up! :)
