Norman Jay MBE on GSS and Notting Hill Carnival after party
Just thought I’d celebrate my latest release with Toby Tobias by dishing out the horn sample we used for the downbeat of the drop. We’re calling ourselves Badnonday and the track is called Albondigas. Too early to say how it’s doing but as I write this, it’s the first record on Phonica’s homepage which is a pretty good sign!
The horn is a long sample that rises towards the end and pans slightly from right to left. It really gives the drop an uplifting feel by bringing out the major chord but you can’t really hear it unless you’re listening out for it.

Norman dropped in to the office to grab his copy early. There may have been a football match on too that day but we won’t talk about that! Since then he’s played it at Glastonbury and reports are that it went down a storm. I still haven’t heard it on a big system and I can’t wait to hear it at Good Times at the Notting Hill Carnival. I’m going on the Sunday and we’re both DJing at the Good Times after party at the William IV if anyone else is about. Hover your mouse over the image of us. We thought it was funny at the time!
