ED DMX ABOUT HIS ALBUM
These are nearly all tracks that were written at the end of 2013 andthe beginning of 2014 when I was in the process of moving house, whichmeant I couldn't have my studio set up.
Instead I made these tracks using one or two synths and one drummachine, recording into a laptop without a mixing desk. I guess thisis the way a lot of people make music but it's new to me. Having therestriction of only a few pieces of equipment on each track helped meto focus on musical ideas. When I felt too restricted by the machinesin use, I would put a couple away and get a couple of different onesout of storage.
So the whole thing has a slightly different production vibe than someof my stuff, and a slightly different thought process, but theinspiration is the same: science fact and fiction mixed with theemotions of daily life.
