Believe or not! My first own track in over 5 years. It took me this long (well not quite) to actually get my ass back on the production line.
It all started already earlier, when we relaunched our Nervous+Anxious project last December, before that I didn’t even have any tools installed. Now we have already written two tracks for that project, but personally I haven’t touched FL Studio outside of that project and this pounding acid techno track is my first.
I’m not promising whole a lot of new updates, but if anything happens besides our N+A project, I’ll be posting it here. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy…
Substance – Keeper of the Purple Twilight

I’ve got these patterns done and ready but sometimes I just can’t finish a track. Now I’ve collected some of those unfinished ideas together and was able to push out another track for the week.
This time it’s pure Roland TR-909 and TB-303 joy. All the sounds come from these two infamous classic elements of techno. The track is pretty cold, minimal and harsh, so if you’re not a hardcore techno lover it’s not probably for you. And then again, if you like this kind of music it’s nothing special either 😉

I have just finished my next remix. It’s not available for downloads just yet because the deadline isn’t until the end of September but as usual, it will be here after the competition is over.
The remix is of an oldschool hardcore breakbeat classic Bish Bosh by Yolk from 1992. The competition was hosted at the Back To The Oldskool forum.

I also made a remix for the Logan Lynn remix competition hosted by Dancefloor Mayhem.
The deadline is on 24th of August and after the competition is over I will also post the track here for downloads.

Today I’ve been working on the remix for an UK based indie band called Kill The Young. This project will take most of my attention this week but I’ve already got some nice test results. My attempt is to create at least one remix for the dancefloors, anything that comes aside is just bonus.
Check their My Space for more information about the band.

This week has been really effective production wise I must admit even myself. Besides having written tracks for the upcoming ep on Monotonik, I’ve been able to come up with these dancefloor tracks as well.
With Trash The Disco I took the idea of electroclash and nu-rave that I had in mind with Ask Why, even further. As a result it turned out to be pretty harsh track but I feel that I succeeded better at how I wanted it to be. Decide for yourself but be warned, this sort of stuff isn’t everyones cup of tea 🙂

Last night I started with another track. I was inspired by some of those Tiga tracks my friend posted in his Facebook profile.
At the same time I had been wanting to experiment with a bit of electro, nu-rave and house and what happened is that I finished with a stompy dancefloor filler using a bit more harsh sounds than I usually use. This version is not actually going to be the final as there are still some bits to polish, but it is the first public version.
This track uses samples from the Texas Instruments Speak & Spell toy.

It is always fun to make acid. With that I of course mean music mainly made using the Roland TB-303 bassline synth that has been one of the biggest things in the world of electronic music and also seriously inspired me in whatever I have done.
This particular track is about experimenting with multiple different basslines, most of them running on top of each other, maximum of three at a time.

After writing those trance tracks, I took a step beyond the straight four on four beats and wrote this electro track for my Kocmohabt project. At this point I am not exactly sure whether it’s one of those projects that will come and go, so it might transfer to my Substance project at some day.
This track has a sample from the classic 1976 sci-fi movie Logan’s Run.

The first tracks of the year were these three acid trance tracks that I wrote for my Substance project.
I wrote these during weeks four and five, in January and February 2009. They represent an oldschool era of trance, mainly sounding like the music that was made in 1993-1994 and that has been one of the bigger inspirations on my experiments in electronic music.
