So for about a week or two I had been wanting to do an homage to Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple, but I had no idea how to start. So I started looking at other covers/remixes, trying to get ideas of what to make. Well, lo and behold, I struck inspiration! I've tried a lot of new elements, including side-chain compression and using gate effects to give me that electro house feel. I also challenged myself to use as little added effects as possible in regards to pedals and such. I'd like this track to serve as an example that you don't need tons of effects to achieve a specific sound. I also managed to get everything sounding as clean and full as possible without sacrificing quality or volume. I'll leave this open for remix so y'all can peek in, hopefully I can learn a few of you somethin'.
As always, please critique, and thanks for listening!!
