Bringing the world back to the house... [Jul. 29th, 2007|03:25 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!

Trilok Gurtu is an Indian percussionist who has performed with a who's who of prominent jazz musicians over the last 30 years. I found a CD 'African Fantasy' at a garage sale yesterday for a dollar. Listening to it, most of it was lame world-music-esque stuff, but the track 'Lisa' stuck in my head as something special.

The original is on the 58/116bpm cusp, depending on how you count it, and the percussion on it was pretty sparse, so I decided it needed a house beat on it. I just jammed it together in Ableton Live -- someone could probably do a more involved edit of it to extend it and make it a bit trackier, but I like what I cooked up.
