Summer is just around the corner and this is the best time for a new Whaleskin release! I can’t wait to enjoy this music on a beach somewhere on a boombox in the sun hanging out with some of my best friends. ?
How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard you before?
1) beachy 2) lush 3) fun
What gear/software/techniques did you use in making this recording?
the holy trinity for this record was definitely the Roland tr-8 drum machine , minimoog voyager , and Roland Jx-3P. Other drum sounds and vocal samples mostly came from old boogie and pop records. I typically perform all of the parts live through a rotating lineup of rack fx modules and an old Yamaha mixing desk. finally everything is tracked into logic 9 where I mix / master.
What mood or mental state do you hope to evoke in the listener with this music?
I think this record lends itself to a nice long drive maybe at dusk to a party or the beach. Basically I want people to feel like they’re about to have a really great time ha.
