Well, it has certainly been a minute. I’ve just been off for a long holiday, and I got to go to Resolution, in Seattle, on New Year’s Eve. It was a lot of fun, and I ran into all my Seattle raver buddies there, as well! We all had a great time watching and dancing with ten thousand others in a warehouse to artists such as Rusko and UZ. It was so crowded and tightly packed near the stage as Rusko screamed, in his always-more-British-than-you-expected, “Are you ready to say ‘fuck off’ 2012?!” The crowd screamed as balloons fell from the ceiling and bass was strangling all of us half to death, and some weird hyper-confetti machine was pumping and shooting, and I noticed that everyone around me was covering their eyes at that point, to avoid that irritating feeling of getting confetti shot into your eyes. Ha.
It was an incredible night, and I danced my ass off. The only downside to the night was the fact that I didn’t know how the hell to get back to the light-rail after the show (everyone kept giving different directions) and the cab lines were predictably busy, so I was scrambling to figure out how to get home, as I lived a good deal further south than any of my friends that had driven there.. I couldn’t backtrack easily to the light rail either, because part of the road was blocked off, which made things a little harder. Luckily, though, an Orange Cab drove by and I waved him down, and I got a ride down near Burien. Wat waaat!
So, what else is new? I’ve been working on a good deal of sample packs, and an ebook as well. I’m going to be doing more tutorials (and Yuri is planning to change the landscape of music (again) with his radical grooves and groundbreaking how-to’s)… This blog known as Bassadelic is getting into the second half of its first year, and I’ve figured out a lot of what people have to expect from this site, what I want to do with the site; what works and what doesn’t. So that’s good.
Also, I’ve been packing up my stuff, and preparing to move to California next week. I’m moving to Mountain View, and very excited about it, too! I’ll have to keep you guys posted, as I’m constantly getting texts and emails, 24-7, asking me if I’m going to bring the website with me to California; …I’m not quite sure I understand the premise of the question, however. California also has an internet, so alls’ahs’gots to do is convert from the Grungeweb (Seattle’s internet) to the one in California. Shouldn’t take too much work.
The first post (after this ‘fuck off 2012′ post) is for a 909 pack I’ve just recently finished. Ambrose Holiday, a graphic designing wizard, had created the cover art, which I am thrilled about. More about that sample pack in a little bit, but damn, it’s a good one. Especially the cymbal drums!! I always find myself irritated as fuck with conventional drum box cymbal drums. So noisy they hurt my ears, no sustain, and just kind of cheesy. I leveled them out and fixed ’em up, giving them the old Bassadelic rinsedown. But, as I said, mmore on that in a little bit…
Happy New Year! Expect HUGE things, from this site but also from yourself!
