“Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a family…” - From the explosive opening scene to the ending epilogue, the 1996 film ‘Trainspotting’ featured an eclectic soundtrack which helped create some of the movie’s most memorable moments.

As well as Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust for life’, another track now synonymous with the film, is the classic ‘Born Slippy’ by Underworld, or to be more precise ‘Born Slippy .NUXX’.

Underworld did produce a track called ‘Born Slippy’ in 1995, but the two tracks are completely different in terms of content and style. (‘Born Slippy .NUXX’ was actually the B-side on the initial single)

Written and produced by Rick Smith, Karl Hyde and Darren Emerson, the strange and confusing lyrics are an interpretation of the thoughts of an alcoholic mind. The band have since confirmed that Karl was indeed an alcoholic himself, around the time the track was created.

After Trainspotting was released, public interest in ‘Born Slippy .NUXX’ soared, and as a result it was released as a single in July 1996, peaking at number 2 in the UK singles chart.

The reason for the rather odd track name can be split into two parts: ‘Born Slippy’ was the name of a racing greyhound which the band reportedly placed a winning bet on. The addition of ‘.NUXX’ has been attributed to a computer glitch the band were experiencing at the time, where project files were somehow given a file extension suffix of ‘.NUXX’.

If you’re recreating this sound for yourself and you don’t see the ‘Flutter’ control in DRC, simply upgrade to the latest version and it will appear.

How to make Depeche Mode 'Just Can't Get Enough with DRC...

Published on 22 Oct 2018

The 1980’s was the decade that really helped defined synth-pop; it was new, exciting, futuristic and most importantly, it was cool. A whole host of electronic artists emerged, the UK providing a good proportion of the talent with bands such as New Order, Soft Cell and Erasure. Today’s track was actually written by one half of Erasure, Vince Clarke, during his brief time writing and performing with his previous band Depeche Mode. It was the final single Clarke wrote for the group, leaving the band in November 1981 just 2 months after it was released.‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ was the second single taken from the band’s debut album ‘Speak and Spell’ and the first of theirs to reach the top 10 in the UK singles chart. Reportedly inspired by ‘To Cut a Long Story Short’ by Spandau Ballet, it was Clarke’s desire to write fundamentally pop driven songs, as opposed to fellow band song writer Martin Gore who had much more of an interest in rock music, that fueled the decision to leave so early on.As a pop song, ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ ticks a lot of boxes in terms of structure and content. A simple but catchy synth hook and plenty of ‘call and response’ karaoke participation of the track’s title throughout, leads to a classic, memorable hit.As always, you can check out the Ableton project file from the video using the link below.Click here to download the Ableton project fileReach out and touch faith,Team Imaginando...

How to make The Chemical Brothers 'Wide Open' synth and keys sounds in DRC...

Published on 12 Oct 2018

In 2015 The Chemical Brothers released their 8th studio album ‘Born in the Echoes’ with several tracks featuring guest vocals from a diverse selection of artists. The English duo defied common collaboration conventions however, by omitting the artist credit in each case. Whilst the pitched up vocal on the album’s second single ‘Go’ is not too difficult to identify as Q-Tip (having previously worked together on the 2004 hit single ‘Galvanize’) the singer of the album’s closing track ‘Wide open’ can be a little trickier to place.The artist in question is of course Beck, who was eventually named as a featured artist when The Chemical Brothers released the beautiful and visually stunning music video ‘Wide Open Ft. Beck’ in January 2016. Featuring a solo dance choreographed by Wayne McGregor and performed by Sonoya Mizuno, the cutting edge CGI effects are made even more impressive by the use of one, long, continuous shot - a single take, no edits.The Chemical Brothers have a bit of a passion for creating interesting and unique videos for their tracks, working with directorial partnership Dom & Nic for other tracks such as ‘Believe’ and ‘The Salmon Dance’, and teaming up with Michel Gondry for the subtly synced audio visuals of ‘Star Guitar.’Making another audio and visual appearance in our video this week is DLYM Delay Modulator - our free effects plugin.

How to make the bass and laser sounds from Todd Terje 'Inspector Norse' in DRC...

Published on 8 Oct 2018

Of the many sub-genres of electronic dance music, it’s probably fair to say that ‘Norwegian disco’ (also known as ‘space disco’ or even ‘cosmic disco’) is a style that is not yet familiar to the masses. If asked to name several popular types of dance music, we don’t think regular disco would be anywhere near the top of list, let alone Norwegian disco.In the cold of the Arctic circle, Norway has historically been somewhat culturally cut off from outside influences, which in part has led to the steady rise of its home grown party scene and soundtrack. As chronicled in the fantastic 2017 documentary ‘Northern Disco Lights’ (highly recommended - well worth a watch!) one of the country’s driving forces of this kind of music is Terje Olsen, better known as the artist Todd Terje.A long time collaborator with fellow Norwegian producer Lindstrøm, the use of Todd Terje as his chosen artist name is a nod to prolific American house DJ Todd Terry. A playfulness that carries over into Terje’s work, he doesn’t take himself too seriously, describing his aim to make his music ‘fruity’ by injecting personality and a silly sense of humour into his tracks.In this week’s video we take on his big breakthrough hit ‘Inspector Norse’, by covering the tune’s bass sound and laser sound with DRC.Click here to download the Ableton project fileThere’s Norway back for us now,Team Imaginando...
