A happy song to dance to while practicing social distancing.


EDIT: Re-uploaded the song since the mp3 had a weird clap for some reason

Also if anyone knows what genre this song falls under, please let me know since I sort of always mess up on using the right genre on submithub/distrokid


So I am missing my normal studio/office space due to water damage which means I am missing my microphone, guitars, amp, pedals, vinyl recorder, and my speakers.

So all I have to make music is a pair of headphones and very tiny, and very cramped bedroom.

So it is just like the old days. To top it off, the quarantine started meaning that I have to stay inside (so nothing really has changed now that I think of it).


Wash your hands.


Anyways, I started this song a few days before self-isolation started and decided to embrace my new limitations and to make something upbeat and fun for a change.


I used a lot of Kontakt and Serum.


Minimal samples were used which was a fun challenge:


David Bowie - Five Years:

(I took the drums, sped them up crazy fast and really messed with them to create a fast punchy sound that almost acts as a texture.)


The Turtles - I'm Chief Kamanawanalea:

This was a bit more straight forward. I took the drums, changed the speed and pitch, duplicated the drums and then pitch those lower to make a nice layered drum pattern that I then sliced occasionally. I then made my own drums and layered them on top of the samples to create a 4 on the floor dancing feel and to add more punch the the track.
