Frisco Funkster Teeko recently created the track “Love Like This” together with Sonya Distel and fellow Mugpush member Devaun Bantu. Devaun is a student at Ex’pression College, which has several campuses throughout the Bay Area. It’s primarily an audio/recording college and this year they launched their new audio/video series ‘Artist In Residence’.
This particular song came from a live Mugpush jam session recording. The improvised vocal track passed to Teeko as he expressed that he had an idea for it. He then imported the vocals to his turntable, where he started to chop up all the vocal parts he liked from various sections of the jam. He then placed them and soon the song began to arrange itself. They later brought in the lush vocals of Sonya Distel to complement the sound and provide beautiful female representation.
The last step was to bring the track to Ex’pression College to utilize their facility and come together with the students to share the experience enjoyed by all. Watch the video below to get an idea of what went down.
Teeko is sharing Love Like This as a free download (and many other songs) at the newly launched Explore.fm. Appearing as the first free music ecosystem for verified artists. The music platform launched today and promises a pure online music experience, where everyone can listen to and download music for free.
In return listeners can show love and donate either to their favorite artist directly or subscribe. In the latter case you can choose how many artists your donation should be divided with. The top artists you listen to most will now get your support in the form of a contribution. The idea is to create a great community of like-mined creators, but we suggest you go grab yourselves a bunch of fresh new music and find out what Explore.fm is all about.
