In between my specific fatherly duties and my general paternalistic attitude, I hand-crafted a new piece of music for my own personal enjoyment (or “funsies” as the hipsters like to say.)
I set out to create something that sounded kinda late-50s retro cool, but not “pretty” like Populuxe, which I recorded a while back. I decided to make this one sound like an old TV detective show, or an early James Bond film. So I started with high-quality sampled instruments, then proceeded to “dirty ’em up” with various effects. Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. As a final touch, I added some vinyl record effects to give it a sprinkling of dust.
It’s called “Guy Spy” and it runs 1:00m. Dig it.
