a techno song, made in two minutes

well okay, maybe it took a bit longer than two minutes. But, I did crank this song out in a single day.

yesterday afternoon I headed to the local Barnes & Noble, got myself a venti coffee (1/3 caffeine, 2/3 decaf), sat down in the cafĂ©, put on my headphones (Sony MDR-7506 for the curious) and started cranking out this tune. While I was working I must admit I frequently checked the Carolina/Clemson game on ESPN, but it didn’t slow me down too much. I got most of the song done there; the rest I finished after dinner. I put a few finishing touches on it just now.

I was going for a dark, pounding club tune with a relentlessly driving beat, which is pretty much what I ended up with. I asked my good friend Brian, a DJ and producer from Detroit, to help me classify it, and was surprised when he said “Techno” – there are so gosh darn many different varieties of techno out there these days that I suppose I expected it to be something fancier – but he’s right, it’s pretty much techno. Granted, after he said that, he did add, “with Electro influences”!

so here it is. It may not be Freedom Rock, but… turn it up!

  1. I dig it, and could definitely see it fitting into a club perfectly. The only real critique I have of it, is I want some more variation. Of course, it was done in a hurry… so maybe there’s a revision on the way? Maybe a five minute one so it has time to really have an arc?

  2. I agree – I’m hoping to amp up the beginning and the ending, somehow. I’d like to make a club mix, where I can keep it going for a longer time, with some good variation, buildups and breakdowns in there. I will let you know if and when I do.
