Night Action

Static Park - Night Action

Yet another ''Noise-Hop'' (?) track, I could have put them together but the truth is I really wasn't planning to do another one so soon. However, I got the inspiration this morning to do just this= how it feels to walk in the lonely streets all night long, not sad but in a kind of frenzy.. kind of a cliché I know but that's how I felt.

On the techy side, the beat was done with a (sampled) Oberheim DX, which was the drum-machine used in the 1st ever digital reggae riddim back in.. 1984 ? and produced by King Jammy (he was Prince Jammy back then but the digital thing made him King eh...) It was also widely used in Hip-Hop and has this extremely old-school flavor. I played electric bass and melodica (another nod to dub, more specifically Augustus Pablo) added a chopped-up vynil scratch and that's it for the beat. 

The noise part is Dream Crusher fuzz + Metal Zone with bass and high cut off and mid at maximum with distortion at medium. Like last time, lots of Reverb (Boss). I played this set up with the piezo mic in order to get some feedback. Didn't have to transpose it digitally this time as it was already in the right key..
