Liner Notes: 

For this song I wanted to use the OP-Z with a few new things. First, I'm accompanying the OP-Z with my guitar. Second, the OP-Z is also being used to sequence an external synthesizer for the bass part, using a RK-005 cable to send MIDi to a Meeblip Triode. I think the song stands out without the guitar, but it add an interesting texture that I haven't used before with the OP-Z.

The name of the song comes from the prohibition years. Last night I went to a speak easy in SF, and the chord progression was actually inspired by "Blue Skies", that Ella Fitzegerald sings.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is cool. I can hear that descending bass pattern from Blue Skies. It's a pattern I know and love. You use some. very interesting dark timbres that suggest illicit nocturnal activity, so yeah, this works with speakeasy so very well. I could see it being used in a dystopian film of some sort.
