new song: 'overexpressed' w/ All Good Records
This track has a crazy history.
I started it in 2013, and the first draft sampled a Vine from one of my all-time tops, Shigeto.
I'm creatively indecisive as hell, and I sat on it for a while (like two years). It wasn't until last year when All Good hit me up that I decided to revamp the track and rework it from the crispy dilla-esque demo I'd made.
Here's a sample of that early demo:
Sounds basically nothing like the final.
So last winter I'd been getting into faster music - footwork, dnb, that kind of stuff. And I started to sample less. So I transcribed the chords from the og vine, played them into a piano, changed them around a little bit. Added bass, switched up the drums, etc. And created a double-time, drum n bass inspired end section, because why not.
When All Good called and wanted a track, I knew this one was gonna be it.
Anyway, hope you dig it, as always. It'll be available soon on Spotify, so make sure to give me a follow.
Peace & enjoy. with headphones, preferably ~
