After a song about playing the traditional game with a dreidel, we’ll now switch to a song named after the dreidel. Sevivon is Hebrew for dreidel, which is Yiddish for a spinning top. While “The Dreidel Song” has gained popularity in Western culture, “Sevivon” is mostly known in Israel or those familiar with the Hebrew language. The traditional version of Sevivon accelerates throughout reaching a fever pitch by the end. I couldn’t say no to tradition, so expect to be dancing your tail off by the time this song is done.
For this decidedly electrosynth piece I’ve utilized pretty much all of my vaunted emulators of old-school gear. Strings from a Philicorda, an Orchestron choir, an ARP Oddysey, an OSCar, even a MiniMoog all make appearances. And it’s all tied together with drums provided NI’s Maschine using sounds from the Pulswerk and Raw Voltage kits.
