‘The ocean . . .’ a vintage loop

The ocean’s gonna take this town : Area Bridges : This is based on a sample of guitar over a casio beat that I’ve had knocking around computers for at least the last 10 years. The loops struck me as pretty hypnotic (it turns out to have 45 beats, so it’s hard to get a handle on), and I struggled with how to dress it up with additional tracks or elaborate processing. I’ve just added a little reversed echo for an intro and mixed in some reverb toward the end.

Here’s some music I put together using guitar and bass, loops, microphones, bits of tape, an old keyboard that had neat analog beats built into it, and lots of digital manipulation.
