serious question

if you were tasked with making a klezmer version of crystal
method's "high roller," how would you go about doing it?

a serious question requires a serious answer, I'd have a
séance with the ghost of Keith Flint and Albert Einstein

given the matter some thought and looking up klezmer in all
seriouschness i have to concur with mr. hypes

alternatively load up some classical instrument library and
replay rhythm and melody with not more than two instruments.
one being a flute like and a low counter bass cello like.
see what the actual instrument of choice is in klezmer.

FAGS LISTEN TO CRYSTAL METHOD

oh, i quite remember my first listen to klezmer music.

the background: when i was, like, 4, my dad dug his
turntable out of the closet and put in a spanking new
cartridge. i noticed this, and promptly went up and poked
the new cartridge with my finger and broke it. my dad said,
"oh well," and stored it back in the closet. approximately
two years later, my dad tried again, and, i shit you not --
my sister promptly went and did the exact same thing, with
the same level of prompt unhesitancy. this goes to the core
of why i don't think i'll ever really actually want kids.
they're horrible. i was horrible. my sister was horrible

in any case, he waited quite a while after that, but finally
he busts it out again, and three or five records in, he puts
on a klezmer vinyl. which is, if you're too lazy to google,
the manic music they play at jewish weddings with the chair
hoists and all that.

"it sounds like lots of little bugs dancing!" i declared. i
was still pretty young. i genuinely loved the energy of it
tho

the real question is can you play it on a bassoon?

this is one of those moments -- some of my bad ideas are
actually pretty good. i jokingly suggested a concept to a
friend

an album that consists entirely of covers of crystal
method's high roller in varying styles


so then i'm just making up various high roller remixes:

high roller [smooth jazz version]
high roller [unix diaspora megamix]
high roller [deltoid variant]
high roller [livecoded]
high roller [planet humppa]
high roller [klezmer redux in red]

...and then i'm thinking about, it, and, hell: a klezmer
remix of high roller would actually work.
i can hear it

but, no, i don't mean busting out the multi-gig sample
libraries. it's more about, well, obvious tempo difference.
and i can hear how it should work in my head. i should
probably just take a stab, really. but there feels like
something something time signature in there; feel like if i
just sit down and try to bang it out the riddim won't be
proper klez

keygigger and a moog arp

you should try high roller (straight version) but it won't
work cause it's not possible
