SOHN Talks Tiny Magical Musical Moments
“In recordings, it was Quincy Jones on Michael Jackson‘s Bad album. There’s little bits and pieces that if you weren’t listening straight to the songs, you wouldn’t hear these amazing things going on.
"Like with “Speed Demon,” there’s this amazing riff that happens. It’s this incredible synth run that goes up and down and takes about one second to happen and you would never notice it as just another pop listener, but as someone who’s into what’s going on with the making of music it’s amazing that it’s going on. It enhances the song so much, this amazing little thing.
It was one of those moments that still happen now, like you listen to some producers and some musicians and you have to laugh because it’s so ridiculously good. It’s the audacity of doing it. I had it recently. When a song can make me laugh ’cause of how ridiculously good it is, that’s when it’s great.”
Everything I do as a person pertains to my singing and I look up to Tupac ‘cause he spoke his mind and always expressed himself even if it contradicted what he said the day before. If you express everything all the time you’re gonna look a little crazy but that’s how you think in your mind and I think I do the same thing [as him]. As a singer, it can be a little weird ‘cause people aren’t used to a singer saying the f-word or a singer talking about gang violence in her neighborhood but I incorporate everything I feel into my music. I feel that’s what he did too.
It’s an audio treasure for women and children of all ages to listen to and enjoy at the breakfast table for motivation in the home as well as the work place. It will be cherished for ages.
Clan in Da Back: The Behind-the-Scenes Oral History of ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’
Ethan Ryman [engineer]: ”At the end of “C.R.E.A.M.,” when Meth is saying, “Dollar dollar bill y’all,” the last “Y’all” is pitched. That happened when RZA was laying down a sample of Meth doing the chorus, and while the tape was rolling, he rocked the pitch wheel on the sequencer to make that happen. That is some typical Wu-Tang creative fuck-you stuff.”
