I seem to love this drum beat with no snare. For some reason that gets people moving more than having the snare on the down beat. I guess that’s what techno is based on. I kind of like the word ‘relentless’. That’s my motto this year for music and songwriting. I’ve done my best to be relentless in my pursuit to make more and more funky music.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
