Made a remix today for a compo held by Dutch radio 3fm;

[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/plugexpert/typhoon-zandloper-jonas-uit-nijmegen-rmx[/soundcloud[

raps in Dutch, so…

Had problems with the first rappers flow, getting it right on the beat the way I wanted was impossible without chopping the vocal up, in the end I just left it this way…some of his bars also sound off in the original :wink:

Just checked this out randomly and enjoyed it. Hard & heavy yet nicely polished. Loved the smack of the beats and the weird break chops. Good stuff.

Another chill out track;

Also this. Love it. I envy your prolific writing! Any tips on that? :smiley: You use any hardware for sequencing or just Renoise?

Just Renoise, vst & tools. No hardware yet, though I like to win the lottery and buy some stuff, preferably korg electribe’ish sampler grooveboxes in which you can sequence and effect samples on the go.

Tips? :slight_smile: Just play with sound and options will present naturally, focus on the stronger ideas to build upon, if stuck start on something new and repeat the process. Eventually you will have enough material to combine or choose from. Might look like I’m prolific, just been tracking for a long time and have never discarded a 4 pattern idea, sometimes it just needs time to marinate, a new sound to spark a creative drive to finally finish it.

Every track is characterizied by the detailed elaboration. Technically it sounds great. Music is fully packed: tracks can both melt brain plates and send a listener to the quiet swimming around the endless expances of inner ocean. Everything sounds flattened, there is nothing extra. While listening, enormous mind map is opening right in front of a listener, and this really impresses.

Sounds awesome. Has an amon tobin feel but with a unique spin.Perhaps the “drop” could have arrived sooner? Like it anyways.

Flattened tone and professional approach to the sound. It is top-level performing. First track is characterized by digitalscapes.gloomy tune. The second wobbles with the sound and charges body with adrenaline portion. The third begins with fat breaks as if the sound embodied the essence of jungle and shoots a listener with powerful and aggressive sound shells. The power verges on terror. The fourth track disintegrates and synthesizes the form; break gives way to bit to become glitch. The fifth track breaks would breast across the atmosphere of synth sound telling who is really running the show. Interesting EP which shows what can be produced basing on jungle and developing the theme to the contemporary electronic sound by threading new digital layers. Great work!

Hah, thanks for the review/feedback! :slight_smile:

The bass is magnificent, good job here! How did you make such good bass? I also love the variations you used, in other words, I love the whole song! Good job, man! :slight_smile:

Thanks, I take it you listened to the first tune in this thread?

Those are all subb bass samples either processed with the CDP tool or left untouched, I didn’t use vsti. Mostly make sure every track other than the bass tracks are eq’d out the sub-bass frequencies (cut everything below 50hz, hi-hat/cymbal tracks cut everything below 250hz’ish etc). Than I’ve signalfollowed/sidechained gainers put on most tracks to duck when the kick track plays a kick, added compressors where necessary and played around with volume levelling in the mixer.
