O mor gynnes mynwes meinwen,

O mor fwyn yw llywa meillionen,

O more felus yw’r cusanau,
Gyda serch a mwynion eiriau,

What? Oh, thats just the original 16th century Welsh carol ‘Nos Galan’ that Deck the Halls was based on. At some point before 1866 Thomas Oliphant took the Welsh melody and gave it the words we know and love today. Mannheim Steamroller also gave this song a masterful new sound in 1984.

My version though goes in a very different direction. Can you say experimental post-dubstep? Very good! This track is anchored by a heavy broken beat created in Logic Ultrabeat and a couple of LFO controlled bass lines from the venerable impOSCar2. Other instrumentation include creepy bells via NI’s Absynth4, Piano and chipsounds from the Logic EXS24 sampler, string pads from a Logic ES E, and some miscellaneous synth lines from a Logic ES2.
