At the end of 2021, my son Moritz sent me unreleased house tracks he had produced before his temporary departure from the music business. He told me that he often had them running while doing desk work. Maybe I would have an idea to work out the songs to something new.
For my taste, they were little stories, but they weren’t told. Also, James Last and the history of the Easy Listening genre came to mind. I took the first track and let my imagination run wild. An atmospheric photo to go with the music seemed like a fitting inspiration boost.
Thus was born the method for working out the song stories, which I kept with all 13 tracks I received.
In the basic track for Indian Slide, Indian rhythm instruments were heard at the beginning and that was the source of inspiration for this song.
India is hard to beat in terms of diversity – geologically, politically and culturally. India is and will probably always remain enigmatic. The song Indian Slide tries to make this enigma audible.
