Track by track by Nick Blacka: The Antidote Is in the Poison
“We never make it easy for ourselves. This track was another that the starting point was taken from a sequenced pattern on a synthesiser, but we then switched everything back to the acoustic instruments and never used a synth on it at all. We always like to challenge ourselves but not to the detriment of the music. We were interested in the idea of using layering techniques on this track but with everything played live and nothing overdubbed.
Again, the Palm Mute Pedal features in the middle section which sounds more electronic despite everything being played on acoustic instruments. The main aspect of this track was to keep a heavy groove throughout despite the density of layering up parts.”
