Kill The Naked

Another small update regarding the album project. I’ve spent some time working on drum programming to get some really crazy breaks going on. I thought I would put it a quick clip of some stuff I am working on right now, see what you make of it.

It’s rough stuff (literally!) but I like where it’s headed along with the unpredictability of the breaks. Right now it’s all just experimental to see what sounds I can make, maybe some of this stuff will make it in to the final project, we shall see.

Listen and (hopefully) enjoy this small clip. Comments are very much welcome!

Project doubleokay is go!

As mentioned in previous posts, I declined to reveal my new artist name due to concerns that the domain name I wanted may get taken. With the site getting hacked it seems this was a sensible move!

With the last of the domain names I wanted now secured I can reveal further plans regarding my little album project.

The name I have chosen is doubleokay, meaning literally “okay okay”. Doesn’t get much simpler than that! I also chose this particular name as it feels like it rolls off the tongue easily and makes for a memorable name both literally and from a marketing position. At some point in the near future I will have a dedicated doubleokay website with downloadable samples, album art and more. For now visiting www.doubleokay.co.uk will redirect you to this blog.

I can also reveal the (provisional) name for the collection will be Kill The Naked. It sounds a bit harsh if you take it in it’s purest literal form. However my interpretation of this is to slay the obvious in the world of music production. “Kill the naked, unoriginal sounds. Make something new, shrew, different. Unique.”

Looking at the image header for this post will give you the sneakiest of peeks at the album art I am designing in between laying down beats. All will be revealed at a later date!

As a side project, I am looking in to future projects using different monikers, possibly even making collaborations depending on how this goes and how much time I have to dedicate to the cause. For this reason I have also secured the domain name www.ithinkitswork.co.uk (which, like the doubleokay domain, currently redirects back to this blog) as a label name of-sorts. Better to secure the domain now than lose it later!

Kill The Naked by doubleokay will be released on I Think It’s Work Records later this year. (I’ve always wanted to do that!)
