It’s one thing to sample a loop and put some drum hits over the top but it’s another to create a whole drum kit from scratch and use recorded sounds from a DX7. That’s precisely what Tree did with his “bootleg” rework of Thundercat’s ‘For Love I Come’.
According to the producer from Santa Cruz, he sampled the track straight off the vinyl and created the drum kit from scratch from his grandmother’s record collection and some of his own. The outcome is a jazzy aural escape, retaining the ethereal cosmic waves of the original but adding a new groove. We’ll certainly be keeping tabs on Tree after this.
