Singled Out: Deep Forest's Tiko
I was working in the studio with Blick Bassy, preparing the recording session and the sounds of the synth to get started. Blick was warming up his vocal chords in the a corner when suddenly and almost sublimely i heard his voice singing the melody, he was improvising without realising I was making note and creating the harmony I was hearing. This is how "Tiko" was born a sweet melody with a little melancholy feel. During the recording of the track, Alune Wade the bass player sung an incredible line towards the end which gives a real boost to the song, right away i had the inspiration to add some dubstep sounds.....an intriguing and attractive mix in this song which combine traditional vocals and dark electronic, in fact it's all I like an unlikely mixture.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
