Boom Boom On The Roof, Boom Boom In Your Ears
BY Common Tiger
This record is inspired by a trip I took to New York City. The name for the record comes from a conversation I had with a woman on the subway. We were talking about living in the same apartment complex as musicians and she said: "They're too loud its Boom Boom on the Roof, Boom Boom in Your Ears!" This record aims to dive into and share the energy and joy of creative freedom.

What People Are Saying.
“Just take a look at that sounds like section, will you? Emancipator, Bonobo and Tycho are frickin' legends in the downtempo electronic game, so when I compare a song to them you bet your bottoms it's going to be pretty good.” - Indie Shuffle

I wrote Fly to encourage a sense of freedom in listeners. When I created Fly I was in the midst of somewhat of a writers block and life funk, we had just released The Shaded In Remix for filous & 165,000 plays on Spotify was (Is) a big deal for me. There was a part of me that rebelled against my day job roasting coffee. Thoughts like "I'm too good for this" etc plagued my mind. Then I had a realization, I thought "I'm not too good for this, whatever I do I just need to let it Fly". When I say Fly I mean make something beautiful and then let it go out into the world and hope that it can add something positive to other peoples lives. I have let go of the "Better than" thoughts and instead dedicated myself to making the best music I can while adding positive things to the lives of others through music.

filous - Shaded In feat Jordan Léser (Common Tiger Remix)
My approach on the shaded in remix for filous was similar to the way an old hip-hop producer would approach the classic records he was sampling. I looked for the sounds and feelings that I felt were iconic about the track and tried to present them in a new and fresh way. The biggest challenge for me being a Down tempo producer and working with an EDM 128bpm track was getting things to gel at a slower speed. I ended up re recording the bass line, guitar and piano all with the original progression but @ a lesser bpm and more Downtempo vibe.
