A little bird has told me Alice isn't too well at the moment. I hope you're well on the road to recovery - you can't leave us!

A surprisingly tough track from WikiLoop's resident vocal, lyric and composition maestro. On the surface, I felt something of a latin approach would work well. Perhaps a rhumba, calypso or bossa. On playing through, I whatever I tried just didn't work in the choruses - it was messy and clumsy-sounding. Maybe I'm suffering from a massive lack of imagination or something. In the end, something akin to a tight reggae beat seemed to sit best; a dead-straight, half-time backbeat through all that glorious percussion, with a more gentle bossa in the verses.

Other mistake was using my Ludwig snare. Too snappy for this track IMO. Oh well.

I'm not convinced by this performance so I'll let the 'Loops decide my fate on this one.

Anyway, get well soon, Alice. We miss you!

kennyadrykennyadry Great take on this one Martin! So bossa that fits so well. You managed to have a great syncopation with the percussion. :)

I hear it again and again this afternoon, that last part sounds so great! Love it so much...

Thank you for the wishing, this track really put a big smile to my face, still trying to back on my music, but I think i need just a little time to pull all my energy back to this body :) thank you very much martin!
