I have a hard time listening to this stuff. In the politest terms, it is so stupid! Not once it gets going, but all the metal scraping sounds. So silly. A type of boyishness that I can't get into. I'm invested in boyish music, but from a different period of life.
BUT the point is well made, while the k and s are paramount (literally in the beat), it is everything AROUND the k and s that create movement. Ushering in a kick, sliding into a snare, halting after the snare. Good stuff.
There is so much to do in production. I do forget this stuff, little slides into beats and what not. Really feel like it is juggling, keeping all these things in mind when working on a track. I think I'm going to have to keep a list of things I should think about, a physical list. I can't keep all the balls in the air at the same time.
Was also considering doing this for things that I enjoy doing. You know how sometimes you're like there is nothing to do, or you open the fridge and it is full, but you're like there is nothing to eat... but you go out and there is a menu, and you're like, hells of yes, I want that.
I'm thinking of developing a menu for production. I want this for appetizer, I want this salad, this soup, this main course... etc. Might make things easy. I really do forget.
But also, a menu for good times. So when you can't think of something, you just look at the list, oh shit, yes, let's go out rock hunting, that is what I want to do.
