.insane go all don't we If
Backstory: ACT I
"insane go all don't we If" (Dutchyyy Remix) was created in 2010 on FL Studio in Tampa, FL.
A Remix of "If We Don't All Go Insane" by Sweatson Klank (f/k/a Take) https://beta.catalog.works/sweatsonklank
Originally meant to be on his 2011 album "Only Mountain: The Remixes", which was A follow up to his 2010 sophomore full length album "Only Mountain" both which were released on Alpha Pup.
Due to the limitations of time / space available on physical releases and multiple producers submitting versions of the same song, The Dutchyyy remix along with remixes from Shlomo, Teebs, Free the Robots and a few others didn't make the final cut.
Backstory: ACT II
Fast Forward to Spring of 2012, After months of planning and saying goodbye to friends and family in the place I called home (Tampa Bay) since I was a child. I took the leap and decided to move to Los Angeles after taking what was supposed to be a 4-6 month long contract teaching at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Unfortunately, we taught them too well & too fast and the contract was cut short, only lasting a few weeks. I was already committed to making Los Angeles my home but now I was limited on funds, and about to lose the hotel I was supposed to be at for months while searching for apartments, but As fate would have it, I was about to get a life raft. After jokingly posting on Facebook, "I'm hungry, someone bring me some food". Someone commented, "You're in Los Angles? I'm a huge fan of your music and my family owns a restaurant". It was my day off, so I commented. "Come Scoop" jokingly, not realizing he would want to follow through. Long Story Short, We became good friends and that night would change the course of my life. Meeting multiple strangers who became best friends. When the contract ended. My new friend (Anthony) allowed me to stay with him while I searched for a place to move into. During this time, I taught him and a few of his friends (who are now my close friends) how to use FL Studio. He was a huge fan of my music, so I played him a bunch of unreleased music I never planned on releasing. He lost his mind when I was adamant about never releasing the music I was playing him. What he didn't know was a few months prior on Xmas night 2011, My Laptop filled with my upcoming Dutchmassive album titled "Romanticizing" along with every beat I made from 2008-xmas 2011 was lost when hard drive got corrupted and dealt me the dreaded Blue Screen Of Death. I didn't have any of it backed up on extra hard drives. All that remained from 2008-2011 was the crappy first draft versions I burned to CD's for "The Car Test" and well, I didn't take care of those either so they all had scratches and were sun damaged. So the things I was playing him, where unfinalized early versions of songs that I know became so much greater than the versions I was left with. He wouldn't take no for an answer and eventually offered to pay my 1st month's rent and my security deposit if I swallowed my pride and uploaded the few early versions I salvaged to bandcamp. He didn't want any profits from it, he just wanted those songs to exist online and be heard by the public. I agreed and moved into my new apartment a few miles down the road from him. Shortly after moving into my new place overlooking the port of Los Angeles, My friend Angel (Kronika) introduced me to another producer who went by the name Ahwlee.
Backstory: ACT III
Ahwlee & I vibed pretty quickly. He would come stay at my apartment and make entire EP's on Ableton Live in one night and not even save what he made. He deleted some of the best beats I've ever heard and he did this frequently. While I was taking all night on a single flips that I would maybe finish at a later date.
So one night A few days before my birthday, while he was knocking out an entire EP in Ableton Live,
and I was stuck working on one single song in FL Studio.
I thought to myself "How is able to knock out fully fleshed out albums during the same time it takes me to finish one song" Later that night, I said "enough is enough, teach me Ableton please!" So he taught me everything he knew and the next day we made the song "Medutayshun" with Ahwlee on the drums and synths and me chopping on Ableton for the 1st time.
This would be the beginning of a new chapter for me. I was very proficient in Ableton and could never go back to the slow and limited work flow I had while working in FL Studio. I wanted to make one final beat in Fruity loops and then close the book on my FL Studio Arc for good. So I made one final song in FL Studio on my birthday May 23rd 2012. titled "Just Be Yourself"
A few months went by, and I was countless tracks in using Ableton. I truly got distracted and got lost in a new extended burst of creative energy. Until one day, I believe it was rent day so September 1st if I'm remembering correctly, Anthony reminded me that I still owed him that album of unreleased tracks from my old hard drive that needed to be uploaded to Bandcamp.
Most of the songs were too badly damaged by scratches in the CD or sunspots so I salvaged what I could, I added a few beats I made in FL studio after moving to Los Angeles. Then, on September 12th, 2012 I reluctantly uploaded the album "Blue Screen of Deaf".
Never touching FL Studio again, becoming an Ableton main and moving to the next chapter creating what would later become the 2 hour Cassette "Chill Gawd, Chill"
- Closing -
This backstory was pretty lengthy, and covered a lot of info that I would have preferred to reveal in future back stories for songs like "ANGLWNGS" or even "Medutayshun" (f/ Ahwlee) because the bulk of story revolves around those songs more than it does to "insane go all don't we If" but the reality is, This song would have never been released to the public, especially since it's an early, unfinished version of the song like 95% of "Blue Screen of Deaf" is. So the elaborate backstory became necessary since I wanted to release this song in tandem with our 1st collab together from 2006 titled "Dream Suite" which is being released as my Genesis drop on my other artist profile (focused on my career as a Vocalist, Writer, Emcee : Dutchmassive
