Dark abstract Rominimal track Start – Finish Series (Part 1 – Drums / Kick / Texture Hits)

►►FREE DOWNLOAD: Inspired by Petre inspirescu, Barac and other Minimal Artists: Download the Free Ableton Live Ro-minimal Kick Rack inspired by Petre inspirescu, Barac and so on to quickly kick off your next track with a deep rolling kick:

This is the first video of a several part Series (don’t know how many it will be yet) taking you from scratch and building up slowly a track.

I basically was just producing and screen captured the whole process, now stripped down into different parts.

Sometimes ro minimal production can feel like having a big rock in front of you while trying to sculpt something worth looking at out of that giant rock. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. For this track it took me around 30 min testing and experimenting until I found something to focus on.

Hope you like the video and find something good in it.
