Pitbulljones- The Big Band is in Town.

A track I have been working on the last few days. Christ on a bike, I have worked on this. The original mix was all horns and spaff.

This mix however...more restrained. Smarter. Owes a certain amount of debt to Jade Beresford who can be found at https://soundcloud.com/jade-beresford she literally told me to put the guitar first, then the strings and who would have thought it.l.....it fucking works.

This is a track for those who love soundtracks but alos clever shit....if you know my style I hide riffs and guitar and little quirky bits here and there. This harks back to classic Big Town tones, motown even. Always in need of a vocal, if one is willing to supply then get in touch. In the mean time, have a listen, enjoy, feddback.

Peace and Hugs,

I am really impressed at the quality of your production these days! It genuinely sounds pro.

The bassline again: it sympathetically resonates with my sternum in a very good way. The drums are simple but help drive the track along, the real star are those horns...the envelopes must have taken you ages! I can absolutely hear this as a track in a modern film score.

If I were to add anything personally I might include a bit of piano or other melodic percussion in the last third of the track to create more of a crescendo using different textures...but thats a style thing rather than execution.

Curriemaster. Just sent you a message explaining some shizz.

That bass....it's a fucking rhodes brah! Who doesn't love a fucking rhodes!!!!! it's simple, basic, but carries the rhythm. Drums....XLN addictive drums. 6/8 motown swing.

Those horns.....yup they are damn good. They are stock from Kontakt, fiddled for the attack, verbed to fuck, then again verbed through valhalla. 20 mins of fucking around, I knew the tone i wanted so just tweaked it to shit.

Film scores are my thing mate, been used in loads of vids, games, animations for the very reason of how 'cinematic' i make my shizz. With regards to your suggestion of melodic percussion...maybe not, but some plucked notation octaved up could work with a bass thump on the beat.

Regardless....get the fuck in touch. and thank you very fucking much for the twattting review you scottish chode.....(love you:))

Sayyy...I really like this! Well done.
