Rami Hattab came over again last week on Thursday to record some songs for his upcoming EP. Since the album is taking longer than usual (that’s because it’s gonna rock!) we decided to quickly put together some stuff for this new small project. CDs will be on sale as soon as the songs are finished being mixed and put to disc. For sale at Rami’s shows and of course, through me.
In the meantime – while he was here – during a break he was jamming in my living room to this song of his, Change. I really liked the way it sounded and told him to immediately go downstairs ’cause we’re gonna record this one! Well, the only thing I got was a demo version of it because we didn’t have time to do the whole thing. The feeling and vibe of the song still come through, though. So here it is – Change, by Rami Hattab.
Because of some personal things going on in my life recently, I haven’t had much time for music; but I did manage to squeeze this one out. Title I think fits it well and it definitely is something different for me. Maybe you’ll like it if you’re into drumstep or dubstep.
This is the title track to Rami’s upcoming album “Will Leben Jetzt!” that I produced. I’ve been working my ass off on these songs for a while now and it’s all coming together.
This song rocks. And it’s so much not the style you hear when he plays live but it’s just Rami.
EDIT: And for those of you who don’t speak German, at the end Rami says “I don’t know, but I think if I say it he’ll kill me but I somehow think it’s too slow!” Carsten is laughing like a hyena in the background The joke is because I kept telling Rami during recording that it’s too slow and he needs to play it faster. We fought about it for a while! Finally he played it my way and at the end thought even that was too slow!!
EDIT – here’s a newly-remixed version with a chilled-out middle 16 for the ladies
My buddy Carsten came over to the studio last week and we finally got my electronic drumkit setup! He’s such an excellent drummer, I just had to get his skills recorded somehow and it finally came to fruition. I had been working a couple hours that morning on a new track with some MIDI drum loops, so I just took them out and had him play instead. It’s such a great groove that I can’t believe we haven’t done this before.
This is our first collaboration together and hopefully the first of many – hence the name, The First Time. Enjoy.
So I spent the weekend recording my friend’s new album coming out hopefully in September! Rami came down from Wiesbaden and we spent two entire days just doing his guitar and vocal tracks. We did manage to get one song fully arranged, mixed, and ready – so here it is!

Here’s a pretty cool video of young meets old. Really good melding of the two styles.
