I started this beat on the MPC 4000 where I programmed the drums and the Steely Dan sample. I later moved it into GarbageBand while in Jamaica where I played a few piano tracks. Next I moved the beat into ProTools where a friend (Jack Sidnel) played a few guitar riffs on the track. I then moved it into Logic where David “Soul Fingaz” Williams came in and added the Majority on the keys heard on the track. I never really mixed it… These days I kinda mix as I go. If I was gonna make a record outta this track I would take the time to mix it properly.
This is a pretty special track to me for the simple reason that David “Soul Fingaz” Williams who played keys on this song died a short time after doing so. I consider this track a celebration of the good times we had recording together. R.I.P. Fingaz.
I wrote demo lyrics for this track. Mind you, I can’t sing that well and most of my people told me the vocals were terrible but when you demo tracks like this it gives an idea of how the track will sound with vocals on it. When you get a real singer to come in and bring life to it, it all makes sense. I find a lot of singers just want to sing and get bogged down by writing. If you can make their life easy by writing for them it speeds up the creative process. I only wrote one verse and sang the same verse twice… However, you will get the point. By the way, I’m looking for a dope singer to make this hot!
Here is the original sample I used in this track:
Steely Dan – “Home At Last”
I made this beat in Logic 8.
If you like it and you have a song idea or want to write to it, contact me.
I have also included an audio player to check out the original sample I used in this joint so you can hear how I flipped it. I kinda stumbled on the sample I used in this beat but fell in love as soon as it heard it.
Southern Man – Neil Young
Peep this beat I made on the MPC 4000.
