I found a drum break from the record that I found in the 500 yen records section. I cut it up and tapped KORG NANO PAD2 all night long until I find the beat that I like.
I made the melody by using the tone of Stan Getz's saxophone from his album and again I cut it up, and made my original melody.
I also overlaid melody by playing KORG microKEY-37.
Now, we have the melody and the beats, so I played a base along with it and made some phrases.
I combined some phrases and made the structure of the song - verse1, chorus 1, verse2, chorus2.
Finally, I played with AKAI APC40 to make it more interesting.
