Remixed this track again and spiced it up a little. I think I'll run to the toilet and comb my hair now ...

Hello Micky, I join the ranks of admirers and humbly note that what you have created is a completely professional achievement and refreshingly stands out from the crowd. Fantastic sound, and as you said yourself in one of your answers here: Disco is immortal!
Kind regards, Manuela

The Bass is killer on this one Mate! I am a huge Heaven 17 fan. I know they did a few Remixes for ( We don't need this) Fascist Groove thing back in the late nineties. I am reading Electronically Yours Part One from Martyn Ware as we speak. I would love to hear what you bring to the table with that tune. Great job Mate!

Yes, I don't get a commitment to do the number. I think it's already stuck with the sub labels that manage their rights here. But I don't want to do it without permission of some kind. I think for use only at LM I could try and do it. Thanks for listening.

In the first 3 seconds I thought of the 70's song Na Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye and got reminded a few times in the track. weird but true, lol. Cool track, lots of dance-able energy in this one. Rollerskating in the 70's to this kind of music.

Hope all is well!

Hey Hey Wayne, yes, I remember the Na Na Na song. It was actually kind of cool. The track would definitely be good at the roller disco, hey hey... mine too, probably. Thanks for listening, glad you liked it.
Cheers,

Hello BeatMaker4real, a wise man once said here on LM: You have to make sure you're doing the music for yourself and the joy will never leave ...
That's actually exactly how I think of it. But comments like yours here are just the icing on the cake that makes everything so delicious, aren't they? Thanks for listening.

Greetings, Now this was kinda refreshing to listen to. I do digged it. I love the vibes in this one. A bit of old school disco is always good. I also sense some modern elements to this one as well. Which made it for me even more interesting. So yeah very well done. And a good blend of different kind of elements. Keep up the good work. And yes one for the favourite section. Verdi,

Groeten, Verdi,
I really enjoyed your review because that's exactly what I'm actually trying to achieve: classic references with a modern twist. Somehow you can't kill disco, huh?
Cheers,

irresistible and damn seemingly effortless ride to the top of the tower of babel — that elevator image combined w the music is pretty haunting!!
great, great stuff!

Micky replied 11th Apr 2024 - 3 months ago
The top of the Tower of Babel... what a beautiful, pictorial comparison! I've since added a few things, such as an additional rhythm guitar, short bursts of brass and some keyboard sequences ....

Hi Micky, Really good progression; I definitely felt like I was in a "Disco Elevator" ;)

Micky replied 11th Apr 2024 - 3 months ago
I saw this video where a few guys in disco clothes squeezed themselves into an elevator that was styled disco and danced wildly in there. In fact, that's what inspired me to write this track. It's nice that that's how it came across to you.

Hi Micky,
ich liebe die brillanz deiner Tracks. Dieser Sound haut mich jedesmal um. Wenn Du mir mal ein paar Tricks verraten könntest würde ich dir die Füße küssen ;). Geil. Auch wenn das nicht mein Genre ist, haust Du mich damit immer um! Geil, echt. Ich bin neidisch!!! Weiter so und vor allem mehr, bitte! Wieder eine gute Zusammenarbeit von euch beiden!
Grüße
Matthias

Hallo Matthias,
danke für die Komplimente!!!
Uff, was für Tricks könnte ich dir verraten ... hm ... eigentlich kenne ich gar keine Tricks. Also, ich benutze, seitdem ich auf dem iMac arbeite das dort implementierte Programm Garage Band. Viele halten es für ein Spielzeug, was es auch sein kann, aber es ist eben doch viel mehr. Es nutzt die Logic Engine und daher ist es eigentlich vom Sound her gleichwertig. Viele praktische Funktionen fehlen ihm aber – so hat man zum Beispiel keine Busse oder einfach so Time Stretching etc. geht nicht. Ich habe mir daher alle möglichen Workarounds angeeignet, um zu meinen Ergebnissen zu kommen. Die mehrstimmigen Gesangsspuren nehme ich alle einzeln auf und bearbeite sie auch alle einzeln. Überhaupt bearbeite ich jede Spur akribisch mit EQ und ggf. Kompression schon vor dem Master. Ich benutze so gut wie keine Samples, sondern spiele fast alles über ein Controller Keyboard per Hand ein, oft sogar die Drumtracks ... jede Trommel und jedes Becken einzeln (Gitarre und Bass natürlich nur klassisch analog). Dabei verwende ich in den meisten Fällen das in Garage Band mitgelieferte Instrumentarium, welches nicht von schlechten Eltern ist. Beim Mixen und Mastern helfen mir die Izotope Tools wie Ozone und Nectar etc.
Aber der größte Teil der "Tricks" ist wahrscheinlich meine Erfahrung als Musiker, meine Begeisterung und jahrelanges Tüfteln. Ich liebe es einfach, an einem Track so lange zu feilen, bis er beim Anhören in meinem Auto Stereo so nah wie möglich an professionelle Produktionen herankommt. Und wenn ich das mit Garage Band schaffe, freut es mich diebisch zusätzlich ... ;–)

Wenn du konkrete Fragen hast – nur zu. Allerdings habe ich keinen blassen Schimmer von Samplitude.

Schöne Grüße aus Düsseldorf,

Micky

I'm back, dance break, you always achieve the ultimate, your music makes ya dance like no one's watchin you can't ask for anything more, and for f#ck sake keep singing your fly

Thank you Paul, your kind words make my day.
You know, I've always been a fan of dance music when it's got this strong draw. It's not that I don't have a political opinion and conviction but it's hard to combine both. I'm trying (for years now) to get the permission to do a cover of Heaven 17's WE DON'T NEED THIS FASCIST GROOVE THANG, but it seems they aren't interested since it's not for commercial purpose. So I keep grooving until I find the right lines myself ...

Cheers,

Micky

Description : A psychedelic techno cello epic. It's not really techno as it's only 110 BPM but something like that (eg breakbeat), with lots of banging beats and arpeggiated acid synths, plus a whole load of my layered cello playing techniques. There aren't that many synths used but they do a lot of work and are carefully automated. No guitar. Drums are mostly a lot of drum loops, supported by a few programmed acoustic drumkits. Very busy and complicated with loads of different sections (funky, chilled, fast, heavy) that make up a constantly progressing trip. I don't know if there's any other cello music like this so let me know if you think there is. Interesting feedback appreciated - criticism, praise, ideas etc. Enjoy...

Description : Pretty basic dance track. Was experimenting with the Falcon synth plugin, hence the name. Instrumentation for the melody lines might be a bit unusual, more orchestral. Vocoder is from the Icarus synth plugin, a great new instrument.
