Every once in while, something comes to me via Twitter that I have to write about. Producer Vidda
has done it again with his latest track, and this one might be my favorite yet. Minimal Lovin (feat. Kings of Leon) is just delicious. Yes, I did just describe a track as delicious.
So of course when I describe a track as "delicious," I want to know more about where the inspiration/idea came from. I love that he took his time on this until he felt he had it just right. See what he has to say below.
"I came up with the main melody/riff in the first session and then let it sit for about a month because nothing was happening creatively. I wasn't able to progress with the track. When I finally came back to it, I was able to turn it into what it is now. I tried a few different acapellas, but Kings of Leon's voice was absolutely unmatched in terms of emotion and it fit the track so well. It is slowed down quite a bit though, sitting at a precarious 113 BPM, so you really are forced to listen to the vocal and feel whatever it is I hope it makes you feel."
I listened to it on the subway commute home and it made the journey across the East River much more pleasant.
