The Story Behind The Music

WHY - Ever had a crush when you were younger? Remember how awkward and clumsy you felt whenever you were around your crush?

I made YOUNG CRUSH as a a reflective, sentimental beat as I remembered my "young crush(es)" -( and some of my not-so-young crushes).

WHAT (about the beat) - The beat moves very sloppy on purpose as a way to point back to how I felt as a teen trying to navigate new experiences with emotions. I double the kick drum to point to the heart "skipping beats" while the sentimental guitar loop plays, indicating longing, uncertainty and fear of rejection. The trumpets signify the fire of ... Okay, okay...

Most of that was BS, but some of it is true. All of the beat elements are deliberate and do reflect how I remember how I felt around certain girls I had a "crush" on. However, I did not make the beat spontaneously, the way I always do. In other words, I did not start out to make a beat about a young crush.

HOW - TaurusBeats used Reason Studios Reason (formerly Propellerhead) as the DAW (digital audio workstation) and a Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a MIDI controller. 

I started with the guitar loop. Then, I built the rest of the beat around the loop - "wrapping the sample" with my hand-played instrumentation. Everything except for the guitar loop is me - hand playing the parts (humanizing). I added layers of my own guitar (panned left and right), piano chords and melody, electric piano chords, a sine wave sub-bass, and trumpets.
