These 2 tracks are my favourite part of the Death Peak live show, releasing them now feels essential!
About 96% of Honey Badger came together as an improv with an elektron RYTM and OB6 synth.
I got really into sequencing out of phase patterns with drums that swing and knock, that you want to move too. You can maintain legit swing at 138 bpm I reckon. I like how the zero swing straight synth is what give it funk though. Swung synths AND swung drums = proper lol cringe they need to yin and yang off of each other.
I was really pleased, it didn’t even need mixing, just some careful mastering.
It was just one stereo track master from the original improv that I chopped into a 7 minute piece because there was about 30 minutes of it. The ending feels like peak rush ecstasy to me. I got that Reese bassline in at the end and thought yipppy that’s the perfect full stop to this track. Game over..
