I decided to to a little rework on this George Benson track. I came to find out that most folks who are not die-hard George Benson fans didn’t know anything about this track! On it’s own right, “Inside Love” is a great smooth disco-ish jam! For this edit, I didn’t really do too much to it. I rearranged some drum patterns to give a steady 32 beat intro and outro that didn’t feel too repetitive. I layered the drums to give it some real driving punch right before George Benson sings, “keeping it personal.” Finally, I added some filtering at key vocal points. To me these simple changes made for a great edit!
One thing I did that wasn’t about the production, was that I made the track a “Like to Download” track on Facebook. The reason I did this was because last year alone, my tracks have been downloaded more than 4,000 times. I figured that if I could, in the very least, build an audience from just 10% of that then I could be on my way to more fans that dig my work, I can begin to understand geographically where most of my audience is at, (so I can plan for out of town shows.) And just really build a network of folks who really love funk, soul, and disco jams!
