did you sample aphex for cuddlepuddle logic? really liked all the different bits, but couldn’t follow why they were stuck together, couldn’t follow the story.
all your songs have awesome melodies, cool beats, nice sounds! will be listening to them more often
No, i didn’t sample him, i cant bring myself to do that, seems so wrong. I suppose that’s what samples are though, in that sense i have no idea where they came from.
All sounds are treated with effects though so as to be unique.
Glad you like them, which one did you like specifically?
Thanks very much, that was actually one of the first tunes i wrote in Renoise, cramped into the back of a van.
There’s alot of use of raw samples. It’s funny that’s your favourite, as it took the least effort.
That’s always the way thought i suppose, its the simplest ones that write themselves that are the best.
Cheers for the all the positive feedback. Glad you like it.
I’m a huge fan of minimalism … even in detailed music. I’ve noticed that the IDM/breakcore artists I like all keep their songs restricted to very basic themes. If you can strip a song down to one track, and its melody/rhythm has still got you moving, anticipating more, then you’ve got a good song on the go. James Brown has it right… it’s all about the funk
Don’t get me wrong, i love funk. It’s all about grooves and rhythm.
I’m a strong believer in the fact that, no matter how simple the melody or chords are, if the rhythm is interesting and flows well enough, it doesn’t matter.
Simple beats always work well under an acid pattern though. Making the loop 12 notes long means it will add variation to the rhythm on its own just by starting again on the 4th beat (as opposed to the 1st if it was set to a 16 note pattern), shifting the loop along to new rhythms.
What did you think of Laardk, that is probably my weirdest track other than cuddle puddle.
IM BUTTERS is the favourite track I’ve ever written though.
Cheers man, its good to finally get some feedback.
Sites like myspace etc don’t really encourage it, its more a space to represent and promote yourself, even when leaving comments.
I’m glad i finally got round to uploading the tunes and hearing what you guys think.
