Tunes, Tracks, Beats & Mixes
Description : So I really wanted to have a song ready for Halloween. But I've been so busy watching Stranger Things that I almost ran out of time. I managed to pull this track together. It still needs some work. But I think it's acceptable to show you guys. I think it's dark 80's electronic pop, but there's no genre tag for that. So electronic will do.
Description : I had a vocal melody stuck in my head, which is not how I usually start a song. I also realised that I never seem to use the vast wealth of loops on this site. So I used a beat by laurentwirz.
I ended up with something that feels to me like melancholic chill-out. Thoughts?
Description : I love movie soundtracks and I love lyrics that tell a story, so I thought I'd make something that had a bit of both. I hope you enjoy :)
Description : It's been a while since I've uploaded anything new. Lack of inspiration and a broken audio interface kinda ruined my creative streak.
Anyway, I managed to steal a bit of time at my friends studio. This is what I made in a few hours.
Description : UPDATE: Intro now starts with piano instead of drums. There's a whole new section at the end. Please leave a comment letting me know your thought. Thanks x
Description : This is an old track that I wrote and recorded during a really low point in my life. I wanted to share it, so I cleaned it up as best I could. Let me know what you think.
Description : I've been rewatching a lot of John Carpenter movies and listening to the soundtracks. I've also been bingeing on 80's gothic synth pop. So I thought I'd give the genre a go. I had fun making it and added lots of different references. Please enjoy and let me know what you think, comments are always greatly appreciated :D
Update: Levels and EQ on Vox and piano have been tweaked. 1 bar has been removed from the extro.
Description : I'm not a madonna fan at all, but I can appreciate a well written song and I always had a soft spot for this track.
So I tuned everything down half a step (so I can try to sing it). Then I cut out part of the second verse ("love is a bird and she needs to fly...") because a shorter refrain before the next chorus works in my arrangement. Then I just went mad with it. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
Description : This is a song that I will often sing to myself if I'm feeling like crap. Apparently my friend likes the song, so I invited him to jam out a recording. This is the result.
Description : This is little something I've been working on in the background. Whenever I got bored of mixing something else, I'd work on this.
This song is all about energy; pushing forward until you can't go on.
There's no vocals this time, which is a rarity for me. I hope you enjoy. AND MERRY CHRISTMAS! x
Description : I found an old recording of me playing guitar on 8-track and decided to use it in a new track. All parts have been recorded using analogue equipment. I've then slowed down, sped up or reversed as I recorded them digitally. Then came the difficult part, attempting to piece it all together in ableton without everything being too out of time (there's no way to make it perfect).
Once I'd EQ'd out some of the loudest hiss, I started applying effects and eventually mastering it all.
What you get as a final product is a simple song executed in a very weird way. I'm quite happy with the disorienting effect. I hope you like it too :)
Description : This song has been driving me insane for 3 years. I've demoed it several times, each with a different approach, yet it's true form has always eluded me. Last time I had a go, I think I may have uploaded a version of it to LM about a year ago. Thankfully I feel that I have finally cracked it.
This isn't the final version, so please let me know if there's anything you think I should tweak in the mix. Thanks for listening :)
Description : I thought it would be cool to do a fun song for Halloween. The lyrics are delightfully cheesy. Sorry for the rough vocals I haven't been singing much for the last few months, so I'm a little rusty. Also, I put it as pop because I'm terrible at labelling things. Hope you enjoy and Happy Halloween! :)
UPDATE: Tweaked EQ and new compression on Vox.
Description : The best way to deliver a heartfelt apology? A rock ballad in 3/4! Not terribly original, but the vocals were all done in one take and the experience has been very cathartic for me.
What do you guys think? Feedback is greatly appreciated.
Description : I've always wanted to make a track about how it feels to suffer from anxiety. On days when everything seems so incredibly overwhelming, it seems that the mind becomes a manic, unwieldy, crunching machine that doesn't want to stop.
I can honestly say that the song in itself has caused it's fair share of anxiety, with over a hundred homemade samples it's been a difficult beast at the best of times. Anyway, it's here now, please enjoy.
Description : This is a very personal song that I wrote about 3 years ago. I've tried to record it a couple of times, but it's never quite worked. But I think I've pinned down the sound this time. Let me know your thoughts.
Description : So I've been a way for a while, completely at a loss for creativity.
Then last week I was reading through my old notes and found a four line poem scribbled on the back of a page. A week later this happened (Whoop). Hope you like Sci-fi :)
Description : So I've been watching waaaay too many videos about monsters of the deep ocean. So it seemed only natural that I used this theme as a basis for a song. It's kinda got a modern rock sound, so I went with that as a genre description. Please enjoy!
Description : A kinda chill out, hip hop track that I created a year ago and didn't finish mixing for some reason. Thought it was a shame to waste so I thought I'd finish it up and share with you guys. Let me know what you think.
Note: I think I got the beat from LM originally. I've chopped it up a lot and changed the tempo. But if you recognize it, let me know.
Description : So I've been working a lot lately and haven't found much time for writing and recording. This is something I've been working on in little pieces where I can. When I started writing it, I decided that I wanted to make something that could be a closing track for a concept album. Let me know what you think, comments are very much appreciated :)
Description : I had a lot of fun recording my last folk song, so I thought I'd take a stab at recording another one. This time I limited myself to 2 for all my vocals and instruments (guitar, piano, ukulele and organ). Enjoy the song and leave a comment letting me know your thoughts :)
Description : I've been in a bit of a musical funk lately, so I worked on this a little bit at a time, building it up. I kind of wanted to capture my frustration and the hope that I will break back out of my shell. Let me know what you think.
Description : My Dad found his old 8-track recorder. I think he was going to ask me if I was interested, but I was already half way to my room with it and a new song forming in my head.
This track is more of a straight-forward folk song. The opening is completely recorded on the 8-track, so it's a bit more lo-fi. Then the track kind of opens up into a cleaner chorus. I hope you enjoy my little experiment.
Description : Welcome. You're expected...

Description : A piano lead rock song that I've just finished mixing today. I know I only just posted a track yesterday, but I'm pretty happy with the way this track turned out and wanted to share it with you guys and get your opinions. I hope you enjoy listening to it. Download is available.
