It's official! My new song Dump Him is live! Woohoo! 🥳
I wanted to expand a little bit about this particular song. This is what I'm calling my quarantine project, cause I made it happen during the stay at home order, and it's my first time in a while that I mixed and mastered myself.
Under normal circumstances I wouldn't have had the time to sit down in front of my laptop and mix a song for hours like I did with this one. So I'm grateful I took the time to do it, and it actually kept my sanity during this very uncertain time in our lives.
Technically, this song is a remix. The inception of it actually goes back a few years. I wrote it, I wanna say, 6 or 7 years ago? It's a song that we played live with my band at the time and was always well received by the audience, so I thought it would be great practice for my production skills to remix it into something completely new. And by completely I mean a total 180 flip. It used to be straight up guitars, vocals, and drums. Which are still there in the new version, but only as part of a bigger picture.
At the time I wrote the song, I believe I had a crush on someone who had recently entered into a relationship with a guy I could not stand. I thought my crush could do so much better than him and should dump him for me instead. I mean, who am I to say who you oughta be with, but you know, when you're young your feelings are wacky like that.
Anyway, that's it for now. I will actually put up a video on YouTube soon breaking down my mixing session on Logic so you can see and hear my thought processing during this project.
