Barangatang: “The tracks on the new “Colors” EP were all created with one thought in mind: spontaneity. Each track started with a blank page, a tempo, and library of synths and samples to choose from. The end result is a variety of styles (or colors) that only have heavy, pumping bass in common.
Delectable relies on a prominent, backwards sounding synth as the main melody and accompanying piano harmonies to emphasize the mood. The main sounds from Phase 2 (other than the synth line) were actually created with just one original sample that I twisted and melded into what it sounds like now.
Feelin’ Good was created in the same way with one trumpet chord sample I found hidden away in my library. When I find a sample I like, I get very attached to it.
Sleazy was created with the image of a disheveled looking man with a big ego walking into a party, unaware of his looks and “sleazy” behavior. He tries his luck with the girls and is unfazed by his failures. That story can be heard in the melody and harmonies in combination with the vocals.
Primal Snazz was created with a fat retro synth bass and a flute sample I thought was just too “snazzy” not to use. I feel that this track contains both a smooth sensation through the flute and guitar, and a primal urge to move to the bass. Hence the name, Primal Snazz.”
