Since I made Fast Soul Music back in 2001, I’ve been wanting to revisit that place where the Barry White Orchestra meets Drum & Bass. I also wanted to give Orchestra Galactica a really good workout - they deserved it. Disco has always been my thing, and I’ve neglected the Orchestra.
Several unique things happened with this track. Firstly, the chord sequence I wrote turned out to be twelve bars long. Drum & Bass is almost 100% built using sixteen-bar phrases. Once you first hear this piece, it takes you a little while to get used to the structure, and for some DJs, it will definitely put them off. But the effect on the dancefloor is unique - the 12 bar aspect becomes addictive. It drives the track on and on. I allowed my orchestra and their irrepressible synth soloist free reign.
There’s layer upon layer of Hippy Shit in there too, along with our friend the loungecore vibes specialist. Ultimately though, this piece is about the one thing that can make a better world possible: Love.
I love you. Do you love me too?
