“Hope my haters keep a special place in their heart for me”
A remix I did four months ago but recently released. Nothing much to bark about.
I used to live in Hamburg, Germany, some years ago. I shared a big ass flat near Reeperbahn with some bohemians. One of them was Moritz, who later began to rap in German. Recently he sent me some vocal stems and asked me to remix Kunstrasen’s upcoming release. This is it. Or at least a first draft.
Paleface is a trap exercise of sorts. Didn’t even try to master it. Put a couple of verses by Drake on top.
Here’s a method to get that crunk/trap bass working with your Roland TR-808 drum machine. You know, like that fat Wiz Khalifa track. In brief, the whole point is the get the attack from a kick and some tonality in the following sub-bass boom. And while they’re on the same frequency, you need to make ‘em play along.
Upload an accented 808 kick drum sample with little decay (meaning a dry, short kick without any boom to it) to your sampler.
Get ya sub-bass on. Program it to hit on the same notes as the kick.
Now, the trick is in the Amplitude Envelope of your synth generating the sub-bass: a) slightly adjust the Attack so it doesn’t clash with the kick, b) set the Decay to around 650 ms, c) bring Sustain all down to the bottom and d) raise the Release to around 2,6 s.
You may adjust these numbers so you get the desired sound, but leave the Sustain level to null.
That’s it. I didn’t invent this, I got it Dorincourt, and he didn’t come up with it either. It’s been around for ages. Still, it’s not common knowledge.
