Good Distraction

One of the things that I really like to do when I need a good distraction, is to write beats. I guess the same way a guitar player would write a lick, a drummer can write a loop. So I sit down behind the kit, fire up a click track, and play some random beats.

Once it's recorded in the system, I can sample it any number of ways and add effects. In this case, the drums are essentially just raw, there's no delays, phasers, distortions or anything like that. Just a little gating ad compression. I really haven't even EQ'd much.

The loop is raw and is ready to be used by an electronic musician, or anybody who creates sample and loop based music. This loop is influenced by afrobeat and funk. Fun times!

  7. When is the Pocketgigs video going to be posted? Is there going to be a web site for pocketgigs as well, or will it stay as a temporary contact only page? I'd like to see the video. Local talent is usually pretty good in Winnipeg.
    If you get a chance, check out my blog:

    and see the experiment I'm doing in Winnipeg. It's been fun so far, but I'm just trying to get the word out that there is something unique like this in The 'Peg. If this is something that interests you, great! If not, thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by. L8R
