THE LOST ART OF DEEP GURGLIN' PHAT'NESS
currently channelin' a creative muse like energy which although primitive and not too well toilet trained, is slowly providing me with some ideas..
trying to implement some of these ideas.. in on a song called "Screaming Dementia".. and I'm currently in the process of making basslines..
there's a secret to a well crafted bassline - I never really know wot it is.. if lucky, I just stumble upon it by accident and use that fluke instead.. it's usually where I get my best stuff..
but at least I know the basics..
there's 3 qualities to a good bassline
1. the stuff you don't hear, but you feel shakin' down ya innards..
2. the stuff you DO hear.. but fuzzes so heavy, you also feel it down ya innards..
3. the booty shakin' funk melody that makes it move..
you could spend ages, trying to get all 3 in one bassline.. and even worse, when you realise you've got the bassline, but.. it dont work for the song.. and you just ditch it.. the damn things drive me insane.. I either get a killa one in 2 minutes.. or it takes me 2 weeks..
still, here I am.. in search of the perfect bassline..
it's like a hidden formula..
I'm gettin' close to 10 of the 11 secret herb's n spices..
but.. I'm missing the last crucial one.. to turn a flat buzzin' sound to a gurglin' phat honka..
