Basic – Creating Great Music Does Not Require A Big Studio

There is not always a need for big production or a big mix of studio equipment to achieve the goal of making good music.  This is proven by our latest find who goes by the apt name, Basic.  The man also known as Lee Williams is not a full time musician but instead a family man with a wife and three children employed by the British Army.

When he gets spare time he heads to his simple bedroom studio to record guitar using a microphone into a music software program on his computer.  Here he adds drums, bass, and any other sounds needed to produce his soulful music.

A great example that stands out to me is his song “Mad”.  It is a simple droning song that will encapsulate the listener with its wash of sound.  The trance-like effect will have you hitting repeat multiple times after the song is over.  Enjoy it below:
