beats by the pound

Karl D – Dum Spiro Spero

The title is Latin, and might as well be called “The one that has a name I can’t remember”.

This production is raw, dirty, and admittedly busy.  At first I wanted this to sound cleaner as a whole, but I think it sounds good with a little dirt on it.  The contrast between the general grit of the track with the clean, ethereal synth providing the chords was very interesting to me.  That kind of contrast has been fundamental to several key productions of mine over the years, so this track in a way felt like a “return to my roots”.

    is it ok to use these tracks as backing to songs?

    • Hi,
      Can you be a little more specific about what you want to do? I don’t understand if you want to sample it, remix it, put it into a mix, or something else altogether. If you’ve got something in mind, I’d love to hear about it!
