If you can’t beat ’em, tweet ’em.
I’ve finished a new track called Nuba Tuba. It’s the first thing I’ve made public in three years. Hannah’s the only person who’s heard it so far, but I reckon it’s pretty done.
No idea how to characterise it in a word. The beat is fast electro with intermittent tribal drums and the melodies probably just sound like melodies that I’d do. There’s some dubby keys (I guess???) with lots of synthy stuff around it and a pretty big bassline that wound up sounding a bit like a tuba to me.
