Ski sunday West End girls analysis

#1 Post by telys »

Maybe it's already been up for discussion but here's a guy doing a 2 hr analysis of West End girls.
He starts with an anecdote of ending up at Advision studios as a kid when PSB were recording It's a sin. And he's got a cool software splitting the track into drums, harmonies and vocal. First time I fully realise the Billie Jean-influence on the drum track.

Great video!

If it's him (almost certain it is) I've seen some of his other videos. One where Adamski turns up half way through his remaking of 'Killer' is very entertaining.

Yeah, the dude goes on for more than 2 hrs. Real penetration of the track.

thank you, i really enjoyed watching and listening to this.

funny thing is, i don't actually like the song 'west end girls'.

===========
as a remixer, and dj, this actually wasn't a breakdown of the song.

it was basically him fiddling around with libraries and sounds for 2 hours trying
to recreate the sound and beats to match the original.

he didn't get too far either.

but what he did was fairly accurate.

=============

there are shorter and better done breakdowns of the songs elsewhere.

however, if you want to recreate it yourself, it was informative.
