Doing more work with Maxx.

So I worked with Stuart all morning and he got down some really suprisingly good vocal work, he was really on the ball today, we did "You're a Liar" and we are currently doing "Walking in the air" but thats going to take quite a bit of mixing to get right. So I give you the new song which I produced and mixed http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/760547 hope people like it! 

 

Update: just finished mixing the other track we did at the weekend, This is called http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/760583 "What do you want from me?"



First of all I want to plug Stuart's new "Heartless", which is a rock thing inspired by the ages. 

So Stuart wanted to do a Giorgio Moroder and he wanted to create a album with the sounds of the 70's, the 80's, 90's and a sound of of the future! He thought wait a second I'll use the softsynths and everything else he knocking around his flat and personal studio, git even kept on borrowing my equipment, the cheek of it! But he's focused for months on one album project and for someone thats the attention span of a gnat its not bad going. He's doing this one as a freebie through this platform for download if you can stomach his mouth, that I will say now that his vocals at last has kind of found a genre which he doesn't sound half bad. I talked to him on the blower earlier after I listened to his release on Mixcloud and he agreed to slight bit of remixing and then he'll get it mastered by a monkey and a typewriter and see if it sounds like anything which he maybe able pass of as something that wasn't produced by him. Its taken him a decade and 15 albums to get right, but for once his mixes are passable, his technique and production skills which have got better over the last mellenia, failed attempts and actually for once making something that people called for, his handful of fans and everyone that follows either Exe.Dist or his other group Transquanta sound and design. He's really tried on this one, if u ain't give it a listen, he ain't moroder by any stretch of the imagination, his vocals are kind of unique, he belives that one day he might sound like Gary Numan, which will be f**kin very very funny indeed, but doesn't stop him trying. This link is his pet and brain child hope you like it! http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/760006

I've been going on about a secret project part of it was this [the thing above], and also I'm working slowly on a collaboration project which will see me boucing to different places and getting different views on what music should sound like which is going pretty interesting to say the least. Please await more info and I will some snippets when tracks get made. Peace out everyone! 



Me and stu just finished a new dance song called "Phased Strings" which was mainly made on Analogue equipment, and has a little bit of reinforcement with select VSTi's. I really like how this one turned out, if you like leave a comment as we would love to hear from you and your opinion! http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/759916



Downfall is one of Maxxpump's hit tracks from last year, which he composed at least three years before that. My new job is to help him adapt it for live use....its an absolute nightmare in a ham basket.

My downfall is one of those tracks that Stuart made that he spent, I remember him saying about a week and a half, he broke the mold as genres go and its Ambeint Electronica, but its not ...Really is its own genre. The original has hints of dance in there as well, but me and Davis agree that its a very  different track, its his own signature piece and he now wants to re-create it and open a fourty five minute show, which started selling tickets a couple of weeks ago, and there is suprisingly a lot of poeple that want to see him play live. He's doing a small venue which has a capcity of about a thousand people. I've come up with some ideas, but the original is so hard to beat, its a very intricate, very delicate piece. I know, but I did look how well it did on the portal and it seems that it unfortnatly maybe posted at the wrong time of day or something, but it crashed and burnt, swept under the carpet, I think its the worst reaction he got on any platform unfortunately. He released a few versions on YouTube getting a few hundred views a piece, better than he even got on the portal, which I imagine is down to statistics and it was posted just at the wrong time in the wrong place and noone was the wiser. 

We will be rerecording as a two week project using the original analogues, apart from the Yamaha CS-40m which stu traded in for a Roland System 8 a while back and I know regrets it pretty sorely.  This will be recorded to Neuendo for Live reproduction (obviously with all live aspects removed, its mainly going to be drums and SFX tracks as Stuart's going play all piano and lead synths live). But we have spent three days on it so far and my recyling bin has a whole bunch of rejects in there already. Stuart's been very meticulous about this, he's after a very spefic sounding track and he doesn't get it at the end thats two weeks down the proverbial toilet as he said he ain't playing anything but what the original sounds and he wants that to be the live version, even though his original project was unfortuenatly corrupted last month, when his SSD died on him. 

Anyway watch this space for developments, and here's the original for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgPZTALZl1o


New dance track Equinox

Overly technical dance track, hope you enjoy it as much as I loved making it, its tester as I currently am playing with boiling water. http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/759282?updated=1502137769


Im back!

Been away for a few weeks, saw both Jean Michel Jarre with Stuart and his lovely girl friend, then I saw Giogio Moroder play live in spain. Currently working on a secret project, with a few people. More to come.



So basically everytime someone has a problem with any of my releases, instead of leaving a comment on the said piece, or just adding it to the bottom of my news section. Don't keep on PM'ing me your crap on the PM system, it ain't cool, you do it to my other mates as well on here, I guess because there maybe a problem with your grapes? not enough balls...Just stop being a nob through the PM which I usually use for permissions of music and general chat with my work mates! It's not for your spam! 



So I released two electronic EDM pieces tonight, one being a dubstep orientated piece another drum and bass piece. Imagine not many peeps up on the portal tonight as barely a peep around to see what I've done, oh well I'll sit on it...Just helped Stu with a Skrilled inspired tune, again not conventional Dubstep, but very close to Skrillex's style and I think if posted at the right time it would be a killer track. He nearly crashed his computer that he was running so many instances of Serum. I believe he was running between thirty to fourty tracks and his computer crawled when we did the bounce down. If your interested he posted it up on soundcloud, he said he will release it here tomorrow afternoon (GMT), I think its a really cool and catchy track, but that depends what the communtity thinks of it as even though its got a lot of simularities to skrill's work, its slightly experimental and we were playing around with a load of layed machine sounds in the end. I think he's got the hang of the drum patterns, and he showed me some track called game something by a kerry? It sounded like some pretty cool Dubstep and would love to produce something like that, but ain't no time foo dat! I will be hopefully launching a new Drum and bass mix I've been working on that sounds very much like a mixture between Chase and Status and Pendulum, been out to a fridau gig last night and played it and it went down really well. 

Don't know if Stu's let on that we just purchased a Moog Voyager Stage edition. which is F'in cool as tits, and has a hell of a sound on it. Hopefully be doing a few tracks in the near future with that can of worms and hopefully kill some birds with my rather large rock. Freedom Stuart's track to be honest I haven't touched it yet as a major project and am a bit lost as what to do with it, as its a very good track as a New wave piece, he want's some electronica/Drum and bass track made out of it, and in minds eye I don't think it will suit it. 

As you may have seen we are currently for the next day working with Jordan some weird irish dude, he sings, not professional level, but sounds much better than Maxx (Stu). He's got a nice drawl to his singing voice which I seems hard for the pro singers I've worked with in the past. So expect a few featured tracks to come out in the next few days.  



Stuart the other day gave me the original files for his hit song "That 80's song" Also known to others as "Freedom", his song has reached nearly forty thousand views on Youtube, thanks to everyone which made it possible and viewed it. He has many different versions of it on newgrounds where It didn't do so well, but he's asked me to remix it, with the help of Aaron Horn, who is trevor horns son, his dad is known for producing the Art of Noise and Frankie goes to hollywood. Stuart's original single had reached the top 100's in the UK and sold over 20K copies, which stuart is severely proud of. I'm going to do everything in my power to make this the best remix ever.

It will probably be dance with hints of rock, hit me back to hear whats going on as this is an amazing project and am honored to do this for Stuart (Maxxpump). Even though most people on Newgrounds, think thats stuarts vocals are crap, he performed his chart selling hit with jimmy anderson, and Shane MacGowan look them up they are excellent singers, so his vocals can't be that bad due to the fact the lead singer of the Pogues sang on it (1980's band from ireland). Stuart Is currently waiting to hear back from a company called Parlophone, which if he's employed he will join other members like the pet shop boys, and chris wood's who are also signed to parlophone! It's taken stuart maybe two decades to being noticed, but he is making it slowly but surely. I'm jealous as I'm stuck in a dead end studio job, even though it's my dream job, there's no career path within the company and I've never personally been signed. 

To the people who are hurting stuart by hating on him, please stop as he needs all the help he can get at the moment, and he really cares about Newgrounds, and he has said to me he may pack it in if he doesn't soon get recognition, as some of his music is shit hot and hes just been hated and bombed to stop him getting on the front page lists which is not fair. I've been here a decade nearly and never seen so much hate towards a user ever and it needs to stop. 



So last night I made a song, a dance song which was probably a little repedative, so some kid (obviously a kid as how he's been chatting to me), left a comment on the song saying it pretty much was boring and made his ears die. Then he pretty much imediately sent me a private message stating that he was sorry and he didn't mean to say these things. Then I got a message a few hours later from one of the mods on the forum stating that I've been acused of stealing or uploading other peoples work. I found the post and it was started by the same kid. So I PM'ed him saying what he was playing at, because plagerism is not an activity I partake in. He said, that he thought I had uploaded a Skrillex song, a Bangarang and I had been caught and apperently been given the boot. A.) I would never upload anyone elses music, B.) until last night I didn't know who this Skrillex guy even was. C.) If I was given the boot I wouldn't be here. So if you come across one of his posts on the forum, you know whats going on.

I imagine hes annoyed at me for making something which he can't make and he is insecure, plus has a bad temper, likes lieing and stiring shit up and, obviously doesn't like me for some reason. If anyone has a clue whats this kids upto give us a message as I would like to know why someone would decidedly attack me, through the forums and PM system.
