Song by song: Voyage and Samm Katt
Voyage came about from a melody Bernard and in mind for guitar. He tracked a synth guitar and I added a real acoustic underneath it. I also added electric guitars. Davis tracked the drums with Addictive. The drum break was recorded by me as well with Honore, who played Djembe, Talking Drum and some other percussion for the break. It was a really funky tune, Davis and bernard made the horns sections as well.
Same Katt was my first ever reggae tune. Bernard has a real creative mind, he had lots of ideas for sounds, melodies for all of the songs, but this one in particular he had an idea for the strings. So we looked around my samples for ages before getting the right sound. I played electric guitars on the track and some acoustic too. Davis made the beats, another session player added the cracking bass line. Later Cissa worked with Trinity a dutch band on the song to add the flute and the english vocals. We added synths, organs and lots of sounds to this. We tracked some real djembe as well which was cool
