Do U Wanna Come written by s-endz produced by s-endz & simon “subs” duggal mixed, engineered and mastered by simon “subs” duggal at sub dub studios
"Do U Wanna Come" is an uptempo neofunk dancefloor jam, written by s-endz, produced by s-endz and simon "subs" duggal, a homage to classic 70’s funk likes james brown and the ohio players, but with a contemporary twist.
It was originally conceived in May 2008 at my home studio. I programmed the drums and played a synth bass part before writing all the lyrics. I did a rough vocal demo in July before taking it to simon’s studio, where he added a guitar part and some synth stabs, and we re-recorded the vocals.
The song remained mostly the same throughout 2009 and 2010, before we came back to it in mid 2011, shortened it down, re-did all the synth parts, and did the final mix.
This is the first song, “Alone" from my EP "Chapter 0 : REINKARNAL”. Download below, you can download for free but if can afford to pay for it, please do - you can pay however much or little you want. Each subsequent song from the EP will be released at 2 week intervals.
Alone written by s-endz produced by s-endz and simon ‘subs’ duggal chorus vocals by sarah riley mixed, engineered and mastered by simon ‘subs’ duggal at sub dub studios
Alone was written and conceived in May 2008 at my home studio. Lyrically, it’s the story of a troubled relationship. It started with a guitar sample from a pop song, ran through a filter and then I started laying down drums on it. The first version was very basic – just the drums and the sample. I wrote and recorded all three verses and the chorus, and then a few months later, took the multitracks over to simon’s studio. There, we redid the drums from scratch, added piano and guitar parts, and had a girl named sarah, who simon was working with at the time, record the chorus vocal. I then redid my own rap vocals. Over the next 3 years, we worked on-and-off on the song, but it always felt incomplete. Finally, in mid 2011, we changed the bassline, added new synth parts and everything fell into place.
“do you enjoy being alone….. do you want me… yes or no”
