lone digger

LAZY_TITLE

if i understand the lyrics correctly, a lone digger is
someone standing alone, the corner of a rave, too shy to
vibe with everyone else. but i might have it wrong

in any case, someone linked me this track in 2016 or
something, and i dug it, but forgot. now i feel: i want
fatboy slim to do a track like this.... i dunno,
electro-swing? or the chemical brothers. how clarinet or
whatever can sound like police or air-raid sirens when
teased right

what are good swing trax to mine for this sort of fing? i'd
totally need a VST setup again to do anything like this, but
i do have a win XP box i haven't booted in ages with some
plugins

as i hear it, you take some 50s clarinet, respect the
pattern, work in house music in between the clarinet
buildups. just stay out of their way but also sidechain the
fuck

90% of this thread is just sheer frustration that i want
this sort of sound with some acid in it. sh101, something.
aaaaa

i looked up swing. it's kind of old. 30s; never~mind. i
recluse myself from socializing with a jazz interface. meye
don't glow wat da fuk im dockin bout. i just dig da utterly
bombastic horns and sorta cowboy bebop madcap. it's all
these spazzy chourususizzzzizez with dramatic moments of the
filter release envelope set to noep

I was at a gig once and I started dancing like I was pushing
down too massive springs at either side of me with the palm
of my hands in a groovy way, that seemed to attract the
girls,

sounds like yr looking for something like get a move on by
mr scruff. it's good fun but he's another one who's a better
dj than a producer. i have danced for 5 or 6 hours straight
at his keep it unreal nights, only fuelled by the cups of
tea you get with scruff

you're in the vector, but you're not quite right. i guess we
need daft punk after all

i like the caravan palace stuff at work; makes me manic.
type type type

mr. scruff is more after-work chill, crate-diving hip-hop.
vinyl grainy. i really do like this track; i'll have to look
this guy up.

but, no, i'm looking for sidechained french house with swing
samples and cocaine. clean swing samples, not crackly,
probably more library, but programmed up such that it sounds
like air-raid sirens. same with the cocaine

i tried to listen to justice afterwards but it was just too
slow and not nearly as well-produced

so i watched the video again just now, and i realized i was
close, but not quite. a lone digger is not someone being shy
off in the corner, it's just someone so into the music that
they're oblivious to the party. it's obviously the antelope
dancer, because at the end of the vid she looks around,
confused, like... when did that happen? just digging the
vibe off alone

ok, the lyrics make even more sense now. the party is dying,
don't let the party die. literally die all around you

today, i let youtube pick sequels a few times, and i wound
up doing alright --

charlie puth - betty boop -- i only know charlie puth as
a one-hit-wonder for that "you just want attention" song,
and this solid laugh of a song gives me hope he's more than
just that

have you got. my. shit -- yeah, this is more the
thing. funny, too

just, like, re-posting to double-down, recommend
this very much; exactly what i was sort of prying
for with this thread. that the profit-engine that is youtube
hooked me up with it makes me slightly less worried for
mankind.

in any case, the features here are numerous. i'll just fire
off the first few that come to mind

- woodwind instruments doing what acid house bass synths
would do with lots of res(onance)
- numerous vocal overdubs with a rather fancy feel
- audio cut-up of swing/jazz breakdowns
- brilliant synergistic meld of vocoder and dubstep bass
- have you got. my. shit
