This video was originally created to help promote a crowd funding project Jamie Macdowell and I embarked on to help fund a trip to play 25 shows at the Edinburgh Fringe that was going to be damn near impossible. But thanks to everyone sharing it and donating we have well and truly reached our goal. Thanks so much! Legends. I decided to leave the video up because I was happy with it. massive respect to Aloe Blacc.
Some info from a technical point of view: The way I recorded this was through two separate feeds in to my soundcard. One input was a direct feed from my 3 Kaoss Pads which I have linked together and the other was from my AKG C414 mic. I filled out the Kaoss pad bed tracks using a stereo imager and added compression to the main vocal but kept that tastyyyyy room reverb in there. Once again no effects on any of my vocals except for a touch of reverb. This is all one take with a few cutaway shots thrown in there just to make it a bit more interesting and to show you how shiny my head is in close up. I'm not a tuning fork so there's a few bung notes in there and I'm shithouse at editing but hey you get the idea I gave it a blast. P.S. Give us a buck brus?
Special shout out to Dj Butcher who filmed this and helped me edit it.
