NOLA Neon is your invitation to the block party of the century: You get a rich jambalaya of dirty south bangers and grimy New Orleans bombast suitable for pre-funks and humid August nights. The best part is that you don’t even need to leave the house! Just pour your beverage of choice into that souvenir parade cup and kick back at your laptop because NOLA Neon is bringin’ the party to you. No, we don’t need to see your ID.
You get five key- and BPM-labeled multitrack construction kits of up to 24(!) tracks each. Tonalities across the kits vary from uplifting, sweltering, mid-afternoon anthems to some gritty, baller vibes for after sundown at the club. NOLA Neon’s consistent sonic signature is classic drum machine- and synth-driven slow-and-low groooooove — no tempos above 93 BPM will be admitted. Processed vocals (pitch shifting and some gentle AM grit) pepper these tracks, dressed to the nines in cinematic strings and orchestral stabs. You also get a lot of party people: shout-along backup vocals, stomps ’n’ claps, and raucous audience samples were all invited.
All of these elements can be mixed, matched, processed, and arranged to your liking to create a blowout in a style of your own — even more so if you get a little help from the Chord Track.
