A jazzy-pop, futuristic type track with a bouncy beat. The track blends the jazz, pop and hip-hop genres into a fusion with some sampled vocals used along with various other parts of a popular Sting tune.
Sometimes, I like to take songs from my favorite artists and make something different with my sound. "Englishman" is a great example.
I spent a couple of hours trying to re-create the original "Englishman in New York" by Sting. I was satisfied with everything except that saxophone! (Sax is always a hard one to deal with in the digital realm.) After I got a decent re-creation, I slowed the track down from 104 bpm to 96 bpm and created the beat.
When I "re-create" parts of existing songs, I actually go through and manually re-create each part that I can hear, as close to the original as I can. It takes awhile, especially since my "musicianship" is not the best and I only know how to re-create "by ear" (what I hear). In all, it is a great exercise in listening and focusing on specific instruments, sounds and parts within a song when so much is going on within it.
This is another one of my "for fun" tracks. I can only hope that Sting wouldn't be angry if he heard it. :->
My Brother in Christ, Ricon Carter hit me up today with this one, using my track "Migraine". The flows are sick!!!
Of course, I'll be keeping y'all posted with updates about the upcoming album from my brothers in Team ELOHIM!
For now, check out the track! Soul Bombin'
