Description : I'm not sure how to describe this one. Listen to it, and then maybe you can describe it for me in the comments. Everything, with the exception of the drums, I made from default settings in both Sylenth1 and Massive. Everything from the E-piano sounding synth, to the chimes, to the "vocal" synths, and everything in between. Enjoy. Skol. V.

    I tried leaving a comment 3 times before and I get logged out every time I hit Post...switched browsers for this one...but I`ll make it short just in case...Dark....grinding..but what would be expected from ValveDriver..fits the title theme perfectly I think..that part that hits jest before 3 min is per4fectly huge...I don`t really know how to describe it either...but genres & such aren`t helpful to music creation....and this always creative stuff...good to see you back around Aaron....keep on....Ed

    Aaron, just noticed the new track and damn I'm here at work. I gave it a quick precursory listen using my ear buds because I wouldn't be able to get any work done thinking about it otherwise !! I really dig the heavy use of the high frequency sounds, very cool stuff ! That combined with the deep ryhthms and bass lines (should I say Dubstep elements?) really make for a uniquely interesting contrast. I have never heard anything like this before so yeah I especially dig this approach man. The overall vibe here seems like you have revisited early ValveDriver, which is really exciting. I definitely will be giving this a few more spins later this evening bro.

    Good track!
    I would not put it into any "category" ... but if forced to, I would say that it should have "progressive" and "dark" into the name.

    Psychedelic Electro / Experimental sandwich... and dude, I like sandwiches. Great track... Ever start thinking about something and your head starts to feel tight?, like it's pressurized? This track gave me that feeling. Awesome work.

    Hi Aaron...long time no see..:),

    I hope there will be no exaggeration if I say this is quintessential
    ValveDriver trademark work. It brings together all important elements
    that your unique progressive style is known for. Dark tone and everpresent tension work convincing as ever. The instrumentation choices are absolutely in place and I must say the synth work is fabulous and production shines !

    Those exquisite 7 minutes were over in a flash...BRAVO !

    Compliments and respect_____Orlando

    Damn you, Mr V, and your damned dreams. You've probably been dreaming of this review so here it is:

    A fading in distant, buzzy synth and then that trippy glassy lead is perhaps a little too loud and/or shrill. Kind of toy-like sound.

    Trappy/dubsteppy drums enter and I know some fat bass is coming.

    1:31 gets dubsteppier plus probably some Shreddage squealing there. Or maybe not. This is fairly unsettling, eerie stuff.

    2:37 another break. I'd actually consider removing 1:31-2:27 and just going from 1:31 to the fatter, bassier section on 2:52. That's when things really come alive.

    Another, windy, swiriling break and the drums return doing a bit more dubstep, wobbling madness.

    4:00-4:03 that's actually a bit jazzy. I'd loop that section up and try to build something even jazzier out of it. The contrast with the dubstep could work really nicely.

    5:40 by the time it's got here, the track seems to have had too many drumless breaks and it's a bit too predictable and plotted out that you're going to return with fatness. Just get rid of 5:40-5:56.

    This is some good, solid, eerie shit but it didn't hit any particular high points for me. The structure was a bit too predictable and I wanted to hear some new and more varied sounds being introduced. All the same, it is quite nicely eerie and dark sci fi and the heaviest dubstep bits would well on a fucked up late night dancefloor.

    first to comment???


    Man Aaron, you did it...everything together in this 7 minutes composition, why we like your world...darkness, progressivity, fabulous use of synths, song buildings, mixing, mood...what else?
    My favourite break is the last one...
    It could easily be a prog/metal hymn to use electric guitars instead of synths but it's not a critique of course...
    Apocalyptic song as usual but this one sums up your career...:-)

    thanx for sharing, fav with my handshake, Danke

Description : This one came about after looping the female Mmmm vocal. Again this one was done a long time ago. Recorded in cubase
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 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 : 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 : 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 : With the winter solstice comes a new album from Spivkurl, as well as this new song from the album. Kind of a new-new-wave sort of track. We all like it around here.

Description : Recently did a collab with Looperman user doctorcatface, and this is what came of it. He sent me his project file with individual loop sections. I laid out the arrangement and wrote some lyrics. Did the mixing and mastering too. I don't know about you, but I enjoy listening to this one. Here's the original track that inspired the collab:

Thanks much for listening!

You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are... Records Capitalist Market found here:
Description : The wild warrior.
In a mysterious chilling EBM mix.
In this unusual song I only use VST's.
The total wacky WHOOO, for the Jungle alarm flute. He really has a totally funky interface.
Then even the Revolta2, Tethys2 and MT Powerdrumkit2.
And underneath, sounds from Robotar.
Mixed with Spinner and KeroVee and some more FX stuff.
And on top of it a little singing, from me.
Again the question arises.
What is the name of this style or genre?
But more important, of course, that you like it.
Comments are of course welcome.
Enjoy the music and dance like a wild warrior

Description : Well, yesterday I did another cover tune, this time an REM song from the album "Monster." I've wanted to cover this song for quite some time, and it all fell into place in just a couple hours. I took one of the basses from my modular synth, and the intro atmosphere was played on my optical theremin. In the chorus there is an arpeggiated organ sound which is sampled from my Gibson G-101 organ. The drums are all samples, and the rest of the synths are VST. Very interested to hear the reaction to this, as it's quite different from the original. Thanks for listening.

Here is the instrumental version for you to download.
Lay some singing on there for me, let's make something cool together! I can't wait to see what you can come up with.
Share with me what you end up with.

Have fun!

Description : This song is represents the final summation of Spivkurl's new album "HellLP." Wrote it with my own two legs and a brain, and composed it with the help of some of my robot friends. The message should be very clear, and if it is not, then you may want to unplug for a while.
