Mango! - Hardy Spymania

Summer in the UK and this is my hot weather tune. Garage in style, but indebted to my early house music heart. The tune is half timed into a dub version which leans heavily on the vst ‘albaorosie dub station’.

I wanted to make something with the joy of Bang The Party “release your body”. Maybe that’s a reflection on the heaviness of the times and looking towards positives.

XLN audio’s XO plug in was used to find drum samples which were sonically close to each other, for the shifting drum voicings. I love the way this plug in maps sound, but it could be a lot more performative.

All ITB and my first tracks in bitwig. Very happy to have stopped tinkering and exported final audio!
