Description : When someone lives in your walls, watching, waiting. Not one of my darker tunes, but it's a little menacing at the very least. All synths, and basslines created by me in Serum, sylenth1 and always. I suggest speakers, or headphones that can pick up deep sub bass.

(Edit: I adjusted some of the melody synth levels. They were buried too deep in the mix. I also brought the percussion down a touch. Hopefully this is better)

    Pretty cinematic track, sounds like from the Bladerunner or a sci fi suspense movie. Plenty to keep me interested, good changes, intro, breaks... all cool. Some neat synth work, you seemed to really get what you were looking for for sounds to build the soundscape and create the feel you wanted.

    Great job!

    Dude, I guess I'm gonna have to start checking in here on a daily basis now ! I hate being late to the ValveDriver new release parties. Especially when the Hors d'Oeuvres your serving up are this good ! I know your style is typically very mood based and generally very dark natured. But yeah this is something else. It's more creepy or disturbing I think. I agree with danke that it does have some cinematic elements and you do a great job here to manage the effects and not overwhelm it. It seems to be more minimalistic than most of your tracks and whether this was done purposely or not, I think it really works here. Everything seems to blend well in the mix for me, but I didn't hear the first version before the edit. I notice some difference in the sound of the synths, I suspect you tried some different settings. As usual your structuring is great, love the mid way tempo change up.

    Aaron, your really firing on all cylinders now bro. Keep poking the coals to it man. This one was really fun !

    Ha! I guess it has been a bit of a Valvdriver Smorgasbord these last couple of weeks.

    Yes. Typically, my work is darker and more mood based, but lately, since I've had the time to just sit down and let it all flow, I've just been letting it write itself. No matter how far outside the realms of the "vast and barren wasteland of post apocalyptic industrialism" it gets. Basically, I have time to enjoy it, so that's what I'm doing! I'm sure I'll eventually get back to the grinding doom based nightmare soundtracks, but for now...I'm a roll widdit!

    You mentioned this one being more minimalist than usual. That is true. I did purposely go with a more minimal approach. Generally, I really like making the complex, uber-layered tracks with a lot of shit happening, (Just like my art. Of which, I still need to get a way for you to see those too.), but I wanted to try seeing if I could make a filled out track with less elements. In this one, I used a total of 11 instruments. That includes each piece of the drums. Normally, I have almost that many in synths alone. (I really like to layer)
    I did go a little out of the box with the synth patches this time. I was trying to achieve a more detuned, uneasy, unsure feeling without actually being out of tune. However,I'm curious to know what the differences were that you heard in the synths.

    Eric, as always my friend, it's a pleasure to hear from you. I will get a hold of you later about the art stuff.

    Take care, mister.

    Cool, Intro, and then you go modern German Goth. I love it.
    Your melody lines are like this:
    Without the pop chorus. But you have a darker edge that makes this fun and deranged in a good way.
    Quality work, excellent sound.
    Your work seems very focused now.
    All the Best

    "Modern German Goth."

    There's a genre/subgenre for everything now, isn't there?

    I can see some similarities between this track and the AND ONE. I can't really say that I was influenced by this genre, though. I listened to this kind of music back in the late 90s/early 00s, but not much since.

    "Your work seems very focused now."

    I have been given the opportunity to have some free time with no job, no kids, and no responsibilities for about the last month. I've had PLENTY of time to focus on it. Not being caught up in the daily hustle and bustle has done wonders for my creativity.

    Thanks for stoppin' by, mister!

    Take care.

    Thanks, man!

    Honestly, I wasn't a fan of Jack as Joker. For my money, the only person that ever truly captured the full sociopath, chaos driven, psychotic essence of the Joker was Mark Hamill in the animated series that came out in he 90s. But, that's my opinion. ;)

    Thanks for listening, and taking time to comment.

    Take care.

    An absolute gorgeous production...reminds me at Kurt Russell's Escape from New York but for the 2020 version...
    dangerous synth work as always in your electronic works and cool easily colud be cinematic the genre...
    quality, feeling, pro work...
    that's all, this is what ValveDriver is all about now ...

    Thank you, sir! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's good to hear from you. I always look forward to hearing what you have to say.

    "Dangerous synth work"

    I like that. I think from now on, I may have to use it in my profiles and general descriptions of my music.

    Danke, you take care, mister.

    with all sincerity.

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 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.

I know I have promised a lot you that I will finish it but never did. However, I am for real this time.

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 : I did this today instead of going for a walk in the sun. This is not the final mix, but the idea is there. I'm always looking for voices to collaborate with so if you feel like it contact me
