killyouclub mix series 002 – missions
What was your first piece of gear?
Do you still use it?
How do you record?
I record very slowly as it’s an always evolving process but these days I have everything connected to a patch-bay that’s also connected to my old mixer that feeds into my interface. This way nothing is stuck and I can run any piece of gear thru any hardware effects or what-have-you. I record my MIDI as well, if available, either straight to Ableton, or I will have made a dense loop of sounds or beats on the MPC and I record that MIDI into Ableton to structure it out then dump back onto MPC for performances.
Do you spend a lot of time rearranging and re-recording parts of a track or do you try to just grab it all in one take?
I try to do all my arranging via MIDI, so recording is pretty easy and accomplished in one take, however, I’ve re-recorded some songs countless times, even completely re-mixed and re-arranged. I will say it’s hard doing it alone.
Quality or quantity?
Quality, make em want more.
If you got to make a track with one piece of gear or instrument and one person living or dead, who and what would it be?
Probably a Fairlight and with my man Trevor Horn
