Oblique Strategies Card: “Be Extravagant”

Equipment Used: Little Phatty Stage II, MF-101 Low Pass Filter, MF-102 Ring Modulator and MF-105M MIDI MuRF, recorded/mixed on a Mac Pro running Ableton Live

The Story Behind the Song: “When I think of Moog and most analog synths in general, they usually represent a previous era of synth-based electronic music. I gave myself the task of using analog gear to sound very contemporary and fresh. I had to do a fair amount of post- processing to get there, but the actual journey of making the track was the most fun I’ve had in a while. I’m a sound nerd at the end of the day; actually playing with the knobs and waveforms in real time is so great. I basically made a heavy hip-hop beat utilizing a lot of my own processed Moog samples—pretty cool. It’s meant for the club. I make music I can DJ out; I’ve already added it to the setlist.”
