    Thank you, that's a nice compliment. It is released, but everything got named "lockdown" this summer and promotion kind of got buried in the thick. :)

    I am well fitted into my apartment for the confinement. Mostly we are following the rules and trying to slow infection rates.

    There's some really good music in France IMO, especially Jazz. Rap here is (T)painfully autotune addicted at the moment. I was very happy to hear Abdess use his voice straight to mic like that. He's good in the video too. :)
    I'm outside of Lyon right now, but you know the population all around is stressed from hate crimes here lately. It's a good time to make music at home!
    If you are in France too, maybe we can start a private thread and talk about music strategies. :D

    Without exaggeration, this is the best song I have heard on this platform so far.
    Sounds very professional and I love the vocals. Especially the French part.
    In Germany we start the second lockdown on monday, so I think I will listen to this again in the next couple of weeks :)
    Keep it up and stay healthy!

    That's a super nice compliment. I assure you there are better musicians and tracks on the site, but I'm taking the compliment for the moment! :D..
    I don't like being cooped up like a criminal, but I'd rather not contribute spreading Covid to vulnerable groups and over running the hospitals for emergency room visits and etc.
    I can happily suffer a little for that cause!

    very cool track — only i’m afraid a reprise may be called for! the only ones safe are the wealthy and connected, alas.

    Thanks! You know it!
    We have a new confinement as of midnight last night probably until January. Luckily I had a second covid related track almost done last confinement but put it aside because I naively thought we were done :D.
    I'm off to write myself a permission slip to leave and buy beer (not joking!)

Lyrics: Slimm
Lock Down, Lock Down, Lock Down!
How long can a family Stay home

Lock Down, Lock Down, Lock Down!
How long will the world be on hold

Distance is against our grain
And the sun is stronger than the law(It is the law)

We know we will persist, our constitution
is beyond reproach

When your freedom is cut
does it squirm like the tail of a lizard

Do not stagnate
Focus on completion (Suffer the cause)

Try not to hate
Some will elude detection (Don't get involved)

Where is the line between science and institution
When you can take no more, they will offer solutions (Stay low and wait)

Lock Down, Lock Down, Lock Down! (Bang your pots and smile!)
What will you trade to regain

Lock Down, Lock Down, Lock Down!
Redefined by example, liberties trampled

[VERSE 2] [OPEN VERSE]

Lock Down, Lock Down, Lock Down!
How long can the enemy be unknown

Lock Down, Lock Down, Lock Down!
How long will we wait on hold

While we suffer the cause
And we're losing our jobs
How long, how long
How long, how long

Lyrics: Abdess
Des semaines qu'on est confiné qu'on finit par confondre les jours
La vie est devenue moins légère et peut être bien qu'on a tout fait pour
Depuis le temps que la Terre étouffe on a fait le tour du sujet
On le paye à prix comptant l'hôpital est à cours de budget
Beaucoup de gens vivent mal le manque d’interactions
Augmentation des violences conjugales et de la délation
Hélas on en est là, des familles qui s'entassent dans des logements délabrés
Des SDF errants dans les rues sont verbalisés
Mais je perds pas l'idée que cette épreuve peut nous émanciper
Maintenant qu'on a ciblé l'essentiel manque plus qu'à tirer...
Des enseignements pour la suite sinon c'est la chutte
Cet enfermement nous incite à méditer là dessus
Et réaliser qu'on abuse, les disparités sont démesurées
Ce confort, cette tranquillité qui pousse à la passivité de nos civilisations
Je vois la fragilité du monde depuis mon balcon

Lyrics: Denise

Description : Music composed by Alex Richard and Laurent Wirz. With: Hanspeter Dubach Lead and rhythm guitars, Alex Richard Bass and rhythm guitars, Claude Barbotte Hammond organ, Joël Perrin Saxophone and me at the drums. The two grooves I used for this one are to find under Loops and Sample, member laurentwirz, reggae. Also an excellent loop from member ebae. I have to say that I asked Michael Mayo before publishing it but I received no answer yet. It was pretty difficult with his acapella because it's a pretty short loop with not a lot of words (for an almost 5 minutes track)! You can ear also some background vocals from Patricia Edwards and I hope it's okay for her.

Description : Took the rundown acapella from ThaSuspect, chopped'it and made a Reggae Instrumental.
Please use it to add Verses and a Chorus.
Hope you like it.

Description : A quick idea I did in one day, 2 mixes, more an exercise for myself than anything serious. Inspirations were a Peter Tosh docu for the reggae feel, a surfing vid on what a point break was for the vox, the Ace of Bass vid The Sign for the drums and Jaco Pastorius song Crisis for a bit of inspirational bass thrown in. 2 drum loops used and a vocal effect loop for the heck of it in the middle, he. Live percussion, cabasa, guiro and double maraca. Me on git, bass, vox. Here comes Summer!
