Tools I Used

Macbook 2.4ghz, with Ableton Live Suite and some PSP audiounits (mixpack, vintage warmer, neon).

Samples I Used

Quite everything is here on ccmixter. Morusque/Nurykabe have wonderful sounds here. They are 80-85% of the whole track.

The bassline is borrowed from Ableton Live bundled samples, drums and synths are Ableton Suite virtual instruments.

Original Samples

The whole drum track, my first one with Session Drums, which I really love (now that I understand what I can do with it...)


The rhodes sample had me at the first listening. I've built everything else against it, playing with my favourite pingpong echo (full feedback, small send time). The housy section was originally intended to be an extension at the end of the track, maybe I'll publish an alternate mix sooner or later..

Other Notes

Many thanks to Morusque. It's a pleasure to work with sounds like his.
