We were looking to do something with a jazzy feel, something with a shuffle to it. I think we had also just picked up a phaser pedal from a guitar store on Albert Street. Although, it might have been an auto wah.
Suffice to say I think we achieved what we had set out to do. Also, I think this is an example of us trying to beef up the kick drums from the drum machines by using a synth to provide that "whump" on the first beat.
