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
October 1, 2009
After been listening to some dub techno made by Teemu T, I had an attempt to create some moody techno myself. It’s also been really chilly weather lately, absolute autumn weather with clear skies and it motivated me to go for a bit colder theme as well.
What can I say? It’s completely different style of music that I’ve ever composed before but maybe because of that it was such a fresh experience for me. It was also completely recorded live without any previously written pattern programming and that also was a new approach in making music. Like it or hate it.
Substance – Dance Of The Spirits (Live Version)
September 18, 2009
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 😉
Substance – Pouring Acid
August 19, 2009
I was watching a live gig of Jori Hulkkonen’s and once again I got completely carried away with the sound of Roland TB-303. Motivated from that, I instantly started working on this new acidhouse track.
It’s a pretty short track for an acid track but I don’t think it matters really and you never know, perhaps I’ll write an extended version of it some day. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it 🙂
Substance – I Know
Edit 6/9/09: Now also in Youtube
July 28, 2009
Today I made a couple of short videos for older tracks I’ve made in 2000 and 2001. All tracks have been released on a free internet musiclabel called Voodoo (may it rest in peace) and are originally Fast Tracker 2 XM files. If you know how to play the tracks separately, you can download them from scene.org. Downloads links will follow:

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.
Substance – Acid Reflux
March 10, 2009
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.
Kocmohabt – The Escape
March 10, 2009
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.
Substance – The Abyss
Substance – Sierra Nevada
Substance – Arctic Surface
