That's my fave of theirs. The caverns metaphor is apt not only for the breadth and depth of the sonics but also because the tune doesn't feel like it sticks to a formulaic structure or progression: the listener, having lost their bearings in the caverns, is at its mercy.This one's ridiculous. The sense of scale's insane, feels like you're listening to a massive object in space or something. I dunno what they've done with the bass, but it feels as though it drops down a layer further than their other stuff, like they've broken through to some colossal network of caverns and tunnels.
I have just read all you folks arguing about where and how the SNAKE STYLE bassline was created… I’m gonna tell y’all direct from the source to educate and inform. I sampled a TR808 Kick Drum with its parameters set to give me the longest sustain possible… sound sent through my desk and EQ... sampled on a ROLAND S-750 then sculptured into a decent chest “thudding” attack and slow decay with longer sustain option using the 750’s “forward & reverse” looping function. Then with a little sprinkle of Jimmy’s SOURCE DIRECT magic, layering, EQ and compression you create this warm buzzin sub bass line. Similar was used in THE CRANE & BLACK ROSE for anyone who hasn't heard those tracks yet. Give it a listen guys. Hope this clears things up for anyone still questioning… Thanks for all your support and positive feedback people, it means a great deal and energises me to get into the studio as much as possible and finish the many new tracks in the creation process at “TOP STATION”. Respect! SD
