Description : My first truely 'electronica' song I ever wrote. I busted it out in about 3 hours due to an unnatural state of mind...... it was the early 90's. Recorded on a Tascam 246. For those too young it was a 4 trak tape recorder that used 'cassette' tapes. I should try to remake this one.

    Yeah, I totally here the retro & asian quality to this. In fact, there were parts of it when I was listening the first time that were remindin me of the soundtrack for Ghostbusters II and various NES & arcade games of the day.

    And good lord, Cassette tapes, whatever happened to those, ay? Actually, I'm just kiddin. They still sell 'em at places like Office Max & Wal-mart (I think Wal still does). Course, they also still use the heck out of those micro-cassettes for those non-digital recorders.

    As for redoing thing, I hear ya. I've got those urges every now and then with a few of my tracks. And as for this one, there's a small part of it that sounds like the audio was overly compressed (like it was part of the tape that was messin up when it was playing/recording). Okies, couldn't find it on the 3rd go round, but there were sections that seemed dodgy (prolly having to do with the drums or something).

    Though for a dated song this is amazingly fresh. Thanks for sharing mate. Later on!

    It does remind me of video game music. Very Asian. I can't say much more to add to what everyone else has said. Another great song. Great quality for the equipment you used. Quite the vitange recording gem. Definitely a favorite.

    I've fallen in love with this track, it is amazing, I can find no fault with it, I would love to hear a remake, but I don't know if you could make it better.

    I love classic synth sounds especially when in ambient. Isn't recorded with cassettes fun? Me and my brother had a project a few years ago with a 6 track yamaha, we still use it when he's in town. Wasn't there for the 80's but seemed like a missed a bunch... like the Stark Club in Dallas.... that sounded like the good ol' days.

    Well Great Job!

    Really nice. Hard to imagine you did this with a four Track. Great job. Like the oriental flavor. Great keys. And like the beat too. I really don't see anything to try to give you constructive criticism on on this. It's nice.

    I've often thought about revisiting old tunes I made years ago....but never seem to find the time...they weren't as good as this one though..newer technology,clearer sound,better production values would possibly improve the sound but not the impact of this track it's great as it is!....cheers planet

    Wow, this takes me back to the 80's, very retro sounding, the drums sound great. Yeah, I like this, does remind me of maybe O.M.D. or Depeche Mode. I have a Tascam 464 in the loft, great machine, took my first steps into the world of home recording with it. Watts

    This is great! If you remade this it could be a lot better with today's technology.

    Thanks Trav, I agree with todays tech, it'll be much better. But I wish I could find that sound again. It was an old Roland D-50, almost 20 years ago. Guess there's alot to choose from these days, tho.

Description : Just like the first EP "OGOU", this production focuses on organic elements with drum samples.It contains modern sounds such electronic down-tempo, future bass,and hip-hop, which makes the music sound old and new at the same time. With heavy sampling of African chants and sound generated from other tribes, this is production will bring more flavor and enjoyment--it's like Africa to your Ears.

Description : After a major uphill battle completing this song and turning it into what it is now, I feel some amount of satisfaction. It was like reality wanted me to give up or something. It's done... phew... Have updated this almost completely, from repatching the modular bass, playing some guitar parts, adding electric piano and synth lead, redoing and tuning the DW-6000 synth, of course adding my vocals, and mixing and mastering. It really has become pretty new wave, like much of my stuff does recently. Have added the lyrics as well. I am proud and happy with it, and I hope you all enjoy listening! UPDATE... woohoo just broke 1000 plays on this track here at looperman!
***original description***
Hey finally here with a new track! I'm not sure what to call this other than electronic, due to the high tempo. This is the first song finished using my interface which allows direct MIDI control of my modular synthesizer. The mid frequency bass part is all from that patch. There are tracks designed with my Zoom RT-123 drum machine, the microkorg, and the circuit bent KORG DW-6000. Other than that it is just a kick and snare drum sample, and a a quick vocal snippet. So I guess it's fairly minimal in that respect. Would like to hear the Looperman community's thoughts on this song! Thank you for listening

Description : The tangled skein of life permeates all creation, binding the known to the unknown. This track, in its own subtle way, attempts to convey that.

Description : The answer to Close Encounters is Hymn Of The Pleiades.This is a strictly groove track where the elements of ambient meets electronic funk and Hip Hop. Track was recorded, mixed and mastered using Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 software. Results were achieved by using a FATA Studio 90 MIDI keyboard ran through a E-MU Proteus 2000 sound module, - for the phat funky bass synth. I also used a KORG O5R/W sound module for the retro lead synth parts and ambient sound pads.
I utilized what was essentially a old school Hip Hop drum track, arranged and beefed it up for that extra umh! I greatly appreciate all the positive feedback the track has garnered thus far. Keep listening and by all means, your comments are much welcomed... thanks.

Description : Here's another bass-packed, African-flavored track for you to dance to.
My sound is heavily influenced by "Africa." Something about the African influences in the vocal samples and percussion made my heart swell and my feet flicker.

the first track of my upcoming Album "World Futurism."

3-Joy
4-Dance Circle
5-Ode's Mythology
6-Rite
7-Thakathi

Description : This one has a lot of changes. Pretty unique. Lots of dubstep sounds, glitch and other sounds. I always enjoy listening back to it. Throw on some headphones, crank it up, and experience the awesomeness of this epic electronic composition.

Description : Recently I've been quite into future bass and this my first real try at making it.

Looking forward to some constructive criticism. Hope you enjoy

Update - This is the updated completed version of the song featuring Eshar on the vocals.This is a very experimental track and hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised by it.

I don't know where else to put this, but I really want to thank the Looperman community for giving my track a chance. It's almost hit 800 plays and it's got so many favorites, it's insane. Thanks to everyone who made this the song it is right now.

Description : Electronic blend. Starts off with a wup wup wup wup bass wob, then a rock beat with a bass line, and synths and samples are weaved in. Glitch sounds invade, and dub step robo voices speak up. A sliced up climax tops off the structure. Thank you, come again.

Description : Here's an original track I made which features different vst's I've found within the interwebs. Very chill, yet hard hitting. I'd say this track is Chillout/Electronic.

Description : A demo of one of my current projects. The chorus vocal sounds like "Aaaaraashe" to me. The song is in C# minor with a nod to C# pythagorean on the chorus. The beat on the verse was inspired by the Peter Gabriel song Intruder.
