What happens if you let Armandox loose on a Fender Rhodes Mark I? Well… something like this. Usually in live situations I love to fiddle with the volume-knob of the Rhodes to get her into overdrive and such. I guess for this track I took it a bit easy… and yes, you got to treat an old lady well, because she serves you so much better if you do!
Here’s the original long mix of It Began in Africa. Recorded and produced back in 2002.
Back in 2002 I was sitting behind my computer listening to the album Zoolook from Jean-Michel Jarre once again, and in the 2nd movement of the song Ethnicolor I suddenly had the idea to do a house/dance track using a sample from that track.
That’s what lays at the basic of this house tune I conjured up then. I started recording (my own) vocals and processing them together with coming up with some kind of theme/melody to carry the tune on the foundation of a steady four-to-the-floor house-beat. Here’s the result…
I updated Nychthemeron Part 3 (Morning) to the extend it can be mixed with the next track I have in mind. I guess by listening to the track (especially the end) you’ll hear where I’m going with this 😉 Nychthemeron Part 4 (12 PM) is coming. Leaves me to wish you all a good morning
One of the first tracks I ever publicly released was this remix of Dragon’s Legend by Italo-group Koto. At the time I was calling myself Eclipse and I released it with the Kosmik Free Music Foundation (KFMF), former KLF (Kosmik Loader Foundation) who were hailed as one of the first internet-labels ever to exist.
The Original Mix of Like It Used To Be is available for listen on Superchief’s Soundcloud-page
