We Maheekats have played our song Devotee Bees live many times in pubs and clubs, but we hadn’t recorded it yet. We couldn’t decide whether we wanted real drums or a drum machine sound, so we settled on recording both.
This song is about the story of Sri Yukteswar and how “the devotee bees sought the divine nectar of the liberated master.” When you’ve had it with the world and nature is the all-accepting force. Remember we are not alone. Nobody is alone. Also, remember, follow yourself. These are things I’m constantly having to remind myself.
Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
The first version we completed was with the Alesis SR-16, a great drum machine from the 90’s.
For the next version, we commissioned our friend Mario Calire. We sent him the raw files and he recorded the drums in his own studio. We were happy with the results and mixed the tracks right away.
We’re happy with both, but which version do you prefer?
