Cozy [Bandcamp Exclusive]

A Bandcamp exclusive single featuring the song from my Mellotron home tape and a little uncovered B-side. Also a rare view video where the catbeats cartoon world dissapates and then back again! Enjoy!

Originally created for a Mellotron DIY Home Tape video! The track "Cozy," which was created in early Autumn 2021 and features Elektron Digitone, Mellotron M4000D Mini, Bass + more. The video removes the cartoon veil for a moment to show the balcony and kitchen nook where I create beats!

Before catbeats started I had an idea of starting a project with Beatles-y mellotron tones and beats which would eventually become what I do today (minus the original Hobbit theme I was exploring, LOL!).

My Mellotron Mini was a purchase I made to myself for Christmas 2 years ago and it immediately became a mainstay for my music creation. I previously noodled with emulating these sounds with dusty samples but it really wasn't the same as having the device itself and pleasing interface using the mix knob to blend the sounds and the tone knob for easy filtering.

The immediacy and fun of the keyboard added delight to the act of my music creation (and also tickled my deep-rooted Beatles and 60s psych fandom). The sounds work great when paired with all sorts of underlying sounds from sampled drums to digital synthesis like on the Digitone.

For "Cozy" I started the core on the Digitone experimenting with the randomly inputting notes to a scale and layering chime-sounds in a circular pattern. When it came to the final sparkle it was of course mellotron vibraphones to float on top to accentuate the musical daydream!

The B-side is something I found in my archives that I recorded back in May 2020 that rounds out the little single!
