Ride It Remake

Here is my take on Ride It by Jay Sean. Musically Jay Sean has been a significant influence on my development as a musician throughout my years growing up listening to his material. Ride It was the first song I had ever heard from Jay Sean and straight away I was hooked. The way the song is composed in a way that allows the artist's voice to shine without overpowering the vocals with many different sounds. When re-creating Ride It I wanted to keep it as close to the original as possible. Using Fruity Loops with only default sounds and plugins, I first used the built-in drum sequencer to add the simplistic drum pattern which only contained a kick, clap and hi-hat. Next, I recorded the choir strings and bass and then the Bollywood style melody you hear playing during the intro and chorus. Lastly, I added an acapella of the original song and placed that within the project.
