This is something a little different- my buddy Dominic sent me a beat, and I made some minor changes to it. Here was the original, already dope:
I rebuilt the drums from the samples Dom gave me, which worked great except for the claps, which I couldn’t get quite as good. All I added was some soft organ, a couple vocal samples, and a few drum fills. And an outer space noise. Outer space! My goal was to have it pull the listener’s attention along from one minor thing to another as the song played.
