Description of the track:
Made this track in Live. It's actually the first track that I produced since I moved out from my parents home! When I first started to write it, I thought to myself, "What is this crap?" But I continued producing the track, and one day when I scrolled through my sample library, I found this awesome vocal sample filled with energy. When I laid it on top of my beat it was a perfect fit. It was like the sample completed the beat and brought it together.
Then it was just a matter of mixing it in my half set up studio. So the result wasn't that great, but I sent it in for professional mastering and I think it turned out nice. Unfortunately it's lacking of low end/sub bass. Noticed that yesterday when I played it on my friends home cinema speaker setup.
Software: Ableton Live, Ni Massive and Ableton's own plugins.
