Singled Out: King Complex's Medication
"Medication" started from a sample I was given by my friend/producer/rapper Tommy Hiemer aka Spud. Shamless plug for his new album "pretenders" on soundcloud.
He was showing me some of the samples he had cut up but wasn't planning on using. After playing a few he got to one that was kinda dark but had a nice bounce and I immediately got the idea for the main riff and asked if I could use it.
It was originally all gonna be in half time but I accidentally loaded the wrong drum loop when I started working on it, which gave it a poppy upbeat feel, and that became the intro and outro.
As with a lot of my lyrics I wrote these really fast and didn't give too much thought to what I was trying to get across. I was more focused on the groove and the sounds...and there! In the sounds. Something lurks in the abyss...it could be chemical addictions, it could be money, it could be love.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
