We are going through crazy times, currently. I am very sorry, about what’s going on in the world around us. About people getting severely sick, about people dying. And I am worrying about the outcome of this situation, how will it affect our daily lives? Will society remain as it is? What will change?
Creating music is one of my ways to cope with this situation. So I started with the idea of lush, melody driven song that provides some good vibes, see my jam in the last post. The feedback I received from you pointed to giving it a bit more beat. Well, this reminded me of the fun I had in the early 90ies with my trusty Casio FZ-1 in breaking the beats. Ok, challenge accepted, I thought and worked a bit on this track.
The track ended up as an industrial style Drum and Bass beast in the middle, showing the chaos that surrounds us all, currently. And it creates an outlook on good times in the end.
I created it on my Korg electribe 2s and played it live into Ableton Live 10, where I added some mastering and two effect transitions.
Hope, you like it 😉

I recently bought this little drum machine beast, the Korg Volca Drum. I really enjoy jamming around with it, as it delivers deep sound creation functionality together with an easy comprehensible, Korg-Electribe-style sequencer.
So why not create a complete track from the 6-pattern device, I thought? Four patterns for the drums and percussions and two for constantly changing sounds based on the profound sound of the box should be a good basis for a minimal techno, house track.
Good idea, as I had a lot of fun jamming around, creating the flow and playing with the Volca Drum. Everything has been played live in one take, out-of-the-box, the only two additions are a guitar pedal that was used for additional delay effects and a little bit of multi-band compressor added in Ableton Live 10.
I hope you enjoy this track, too. 😉
You can find it on all major streaming and music download platforms and on my Bandcamp site. Here are some links:
