We are the Happy Kind!
This is my first official attempt at finishing one of my electronic tunes. two Christmases ago I bought myself Ableton live 9 and the Ableton Push so I can transform some of my music ideas in my head into reality. I rarely get a chance to make music, and in two years I have only been able to lay down a handful of songs that you can hear on my Soundcloud page .
A friend of mine (Clifford Doucette of Elephant Skeletons…who I am a massive fan of musically and humanly) invited me to release a song on a New Brunswick artist compilation album called ‘It’s Always Sunny in New Brunswick’. It a wicked album, I’m so impressed with the quality of all the tracks on this comp, we have so much talent in this place.
I called my song submission ‘Happy Kind’. Its in reference to my life and business vision statement that is commits me to contributing only to things that inspire a happier and kinder world. It’s also inspired by Jack Kerouac’s quote from On the Road:
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
I want to thank my good friend and electro mentor Ben Ramafor helping me produce this track. Also props to my friends at Village Sound in Halifax for some of the vox tracks. Hope you dig!
If you feel inclined please purchase the whole album here, hey could make a nice digital gift for somebody this Christmas!
