posted this in dubs for feedback but realise i have way to many questions.
I’ve been attempting to analyse what i like about the old DMZ stuff so much, lets start with misty winter.
Seems like there is so much reverb, even on the kick? maybe all the kit is on a send?
I love the descending (square wave?) bass at 20 seconds, i can get the tone but its wobble is kind of weird, again, sounds super reverbed. I thought you werent supposed to put reverb on kicks, on basses etc, but alot of loefah stuff + the classic era seems to break all the rules in general.
Again this track rolls so much, and the beat doesnt seem to variate that much but somehow it keeps on rolling and doesnt get lame.
Heres my whack attempt at something similar.
to busy, doesnt roll, i know it must be about simplicity + sample selection + cultivating the right vibe but cant seem to get my head around it.
analysing these old tunes sends me down a rabbit hole, if i really think about the actual samples + sounds alot of it is pretty shit really, but it’s so damn good!
Sorry for the essay lads, not sure if i was clear but i just want to learn abit more about these kinds of tunes if anyone has any pointers.
