The fourth single from The Prodigy’s upcoming album, No Tourists, is out. It’s called “We Live Forever” and it’s a fresh, fast-paced rave tune that takes you back to the 90s dance days with a modern Prodigy twist.
I didn’t set out to create a Lo-fi kind of track, but after sampling a few sounds and playing around – it’s what came out. One of the most melodic tracks I ever created, and I like it (the few previous tracks weren’t so nice on the ears :)
In this track I finally realized how I can use filtering to make new sounds. So the only sample I used here (except for internal PO-33 sounds) is the “Pyro Chords” sound sample from the online preview of the Heisenberg synthesizer.
The track is very “electronic” and not so great melodically, but I enjoyed making it a lot and I took my time to enjoy the process.
Additionally, for the first time, I used effects as part of the final recording. Specifically, I used the unison effects on the PO-33. I think they gave a nice twist to the music.
It took me very long to get this together. It’s not that there was a specific difficulty. I just had a block and wasn’t happy with whatever I was doing. The final result, however, I find quite pleasing :)
It’s a relatively slow track (at least it starts slow), which I wanted to do after listening to G Jones – In Your Head. A very cool and hard-hitting “bass movement” track. So you can say it’s an inspiration :)
