Behind The Music - Smooth Rides
Updated: Dec 15, 2019
December 2nd I'm dropping a new single called Smooth Rides. I honestly spent the least amount of time creating it, but it feels like my best work yet.
The song has a meditative and dance-able vibe. It started when I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. I wandered half asleep to my computer and started creating crazy sounds with a beat. I honestly don't remember how it happened, but next thing I know I'm on YouTube sampling David Lynch giving a speech about Transcendental Meditation. After putting it in the track I did some research later and learned it's a popular mantra in the middle east about centering your thoughts and energy, commonly practiced in India. It's wild because every time I hear this track, i feel some type of strange inner connection to something greater than myself. I know it sounds weird, but that's the best way I can explain it....(cue trippy spaceship music haha)
I wanted to create an "out of body" feeling for this track that still makes you move on the dance floor. For me, the song is a reminder we can take control of our own feelings and thoughts...or we can allow the outside world to do it for us.
