“Ain TheMachine is without doubt one of the most unique and creative producers that we have had the pleasure of discovering, with a production arsenal that includes no more than himself, a few random objects and Ableton Live.”
The newest track/video release from Ain The Machine, “U Right and U Know It”, is an energetic, bright ride of surprising samples and distinctive, trippy sounds. The video gives us a powerful insight into how electronic dance music can be made using only the sounds from 1 body, 2 voices, 2 objects and 1 TB03.
The track begins with a rich chorus of vocals then quickly amps up the gears with a four-on-the-floor kick made by recording hits to a contact mic on the chest. This creates a deep bass kick sound that gets the song dancing. Using a strip of Velcro to create a persistent hi-hat and a pen on an empty pill bottle Ain layers a landscape of lush sounds in often the most surprising ways.
We are invited into an assembly of surprising samples that Ain uses to create the entire beat. The TB-303 synth gives the track a psychedelic glimmer of spacey, wobbly echoes, bringing us into a bouncing club feel. As the track quickly evolves we hear the vocals repeat the title of the track in our ears. The vocals were recorded at a live show, where Ain placed a mic for audience members to sing when they felt inspired. One audience member, Vita Mina, stood out, with a melody of buoyant, self-assured lyrics that seem to encompass the overall vibe of the track. If you’re right and you know it! A truly enjoyable track to experience the exciting and inspiring methods of music creation!
U Right and U Know It will be released on 11th of December 2020, followed by a series of releases culminating in the album Naked on The DanceFloor in 2021.
