Joshua Iz Versions LP Track Notes: 03 Midnight Version

Joshua Iz - Versions LP - Midnight Version

Joshua Iz - Versions LP - Midnight Version

The main loop in this track is from an old mambo track and just has a wonderful warm sound that makes me think of red velvet and impeccable suits. As I often do, I started with the loop and build up rhythmically around that. Sometimes after getting into the nitty gritty of a track I end up taking the original loop out altogether yet loops are a great way to get ideas flowing quickly. ‘Midnight Version’ ended up being kind of a mash-up of mambo, hip-hop, dub and atmospheric sounds. I could really see it used in a movie.
