Congrats! Very nice afropop vibe to it, getting back to days of Paul Simon, Sting, and lot of others in the 80's.

Kind of recognice a Rex loop in drums in the verse? What else refills or instruments are you using? What was changed now when finishing it?

Hey thanks man. I have not got the project in front of me but I am pretty sure the rex loops are in the Reggae Dub OneDrop patch and I also layered another loop from the Studio Drums folder for the chorus. The trumpet sound is based on a Reason default patch, sounds terrible in solo but seemed to pierce through the mix lol. The guitars and bass were recorded direct in. There is also a glockenspiel hiding in there somewhere oh and a few trumpet slides from the soul refill.

I started this when I bought reason 9 and was learning how to use it. I loaded up that beat and strummed G C D and then everything fell into place, finished at 3am and went to work a few hours later lol. Not sure why it was sitting on my hard drive for so long, only needed to add backing vocals and adjust a few levels. Saying that I have a lot more songs than are pretty much finished... need to get on with it lol.
