Hello...

I made this song entirely from scratch. The hardest part was starting out, like having a blank canvas and trying to think what funk song do i wanna make.. (Made this song especially for this competition btw). After figuring out roughly what kinda song i wanna make, then programming drums are a pain in the ass as usual, then trying to find cool bass lines & patch with it.. i settled with acoustic upright bass, it might doesn't sound so obvious after all those layers...

after the skeleton of the song is done, it's a bit easier to fit in little parts.. listening to which one's work and doesn't work. There's a lot of layers in my Adobe Audition, i used up 48 audio tracks LOL... Try to listen to this VERY LOUD! It'll be great.. trust me :p Spent 2 weeks creating this baby, felt like years actually.. it's like a lot of blood, sweat & tears.. but i'm glad at the end i find the right path for the song. It's very easy for us to just noodling around with the song and being sidetracked for making a 'composition', i think i managed to avoid that.

I also got inspired doing harmonies from a few DrCode's work that i've listened.. thanks for that man..

A lot of time were spent doing production work, finding the right mix, finding the right lead lines, thickening up the sounds..

Great tune, very nice..............Media Player wouldn't play it for me, so I opened it up in Audition, and noticed that it is very hot. The meters were peaking, and the waveform was just a solid mass, with no head room.
