“Don’t you want me to wake up….”
Big Synth drop right here. I was lucky enough to interview James Murphy (the main guy from LCD) a couple weeks back for ExploreMusic and I asked him about this part of the song. He said he’s a big gear guy, and that he sidechained about 6 synths to get this the way he wanted it. I remember watching a video of Kanye talking to Timbaland about whether the kick drum on Stronger had enough oomph…there are parts of songs that a producer knows have to hit hard, and I think some producers spend days if not weeks tweaking the compressors, filters and effects settings once they’ve already got the notes played.
You’ll be thankful when you hear this, I am. Check it out.
