Alpine Compound

You’re on SoundCloud. The track you searched for finished playing. Algorithms shuffle to another related track. 808’s slide tackle your tympanic membrane and high-hats slice up your cochlea. Clean sounds. Professional. You think it’s safe to assume these sounds came out of big studio. Big control panel. Big A/C unit. Big front desk. Big building. Bare tings. Lol, no still.

Block C. Chancellor Hall. UWI, Mona. Kingston. A room with a red light. Equipped with a PC and a pair of KRK Rokit 5 G3 studio monitors. The sounds come from here (among other places). Nothing fancy. Functional.

Alpine Compound makes do with what they have. A small room, wires everywhere. Cozy. Saturday night link-up with mandem for a cook sesh. One by one, the team rolls through. Supplying constructive criticism and uplifting remarks. Mary Jane is present. Hotbox ting.
