44.00Along­side the recorded Rhodes parts is an­other elec­tric pi­ano line, sam­pled from an­other record, that has a dra­matic im­pact on the har­monic pro­gres­sion of the track.

Hans: “We tend to use lots of lay­er­ing, and dou­bling in­stru­ments is a re­ally good way to flesh out your mix and make the melodic parts big. We were lis­ten­ing to this gypsy jazz track from the 70s, and it started with these fall­ing sound­ing pro­gres­sion. It’s an­other Rhodes. Some­times it’s dif­fi­cult if you use a sam­ple Rhodes to­gether with one that you’ve done your­self, but in this par­tic­u­lar in­stance it sounded al­right in the mix. They have a dif­fer­ent kind of feel…”

Daniël: “It’s in the same key, kind of, but it’s drift­ing off a bit, and it works.” Hans: “It’s also a tran­si­tionary el­e­ment. You can use it to say, ‘OK, some­thing’s hap­pen­ing, it’s go­ing to change, flip a lit­tle bit’.”
