Description : Genre Americana

A note of jazz and blues here. I think its a big one, but I think all my songs are big ones. Lol

You might need to read along with the lyrics, not sure how great this mix is. Maybe its good, I think I'm too close to it.

I turned up the vocals on the chours. So it should sound clearer now.

    Amazing sax, great song!
    Btw what I learned from Manuela: rather than turn up the vocals, it's sometimes better to compress the instruments and sidechain them to the vocals. This creates more space for the vocals.
    Merry Christmas my friend!

    I always use compression on my vocals. But I do not have much control over the instruments, I get the instrumental in full form I could buy track outs... But I dont have that kind of cash on hand.

    This is very classy - classic soulful blues with your own twist- the lyric is great, the vocal performance is spot on and the production sound is excellent.

    Thank you, Paul. Really, I treat looperman like an open mic, there's not too many places like it on the internet. Just a common crowd, almost like a small twitter circle. Or a group at a local bar or something, where we've all gotten to know each others work. I always try to bring a surprise.

Description : Of all the classic Monster tales the Wolfman is definitely one of the saddest. Cursed, and destined to live as both man and monster. During the day he sits alone with his guitar, a prisoner of lonely existence, crying his heart out through his music. Then at night, the beast emerges, and in the dark under a full moon, he cry's as he rips the hearts out of his victims! Such is the life of a cursed bluesman!

Description : This is a tune dedicated to my friend, Nancy, who followed me to the clubs I played at for years, and is still following me with my studio work. Why do I dedicate this to her? Onnacounta cause she's soooooo naughty! She never liked violins, but loved her sax! Here's to you, Nancy. Anyway, this is a little blues track with some nice guitar and sex...oh, sorry, I mean sax.

Enjoy and download away.

Description : Been away for a while. I am doing something I usually don't do with this one. Here is a blues track I put together in a day. It features everything being done by me, with improvised solos for each instrument. This was done using Fl Studio 12 and my Korg M50 keyboard. I plan on adding lyrics to it down the road and having everything much cleaner. Anyhow, enjoy!

Description : Cosmic Eastern chillout atmospheric shuffle blues with loads of bluesy/Eastern electric guitar playing and warm sub bass (the same synth patch I've used in about 20 tracks). No drum loops and just two programmed acoustic kits - probably the simplest drum setup I've ever used. One day I hope to make a track containing only one drum kit. Also: a few female vocal samples (including a heavily timestretched one), one section of bass guitar, a few sample-based string instruments, a few notes of organ and two synth pad instruments. So, quite a minimal instrument lineup for me. It goes uptempo around 4:31 into a grooving, stomping bit of shuffle blues and I wonder if I should have brought this section back at the end for a triumphant finale. But I'm trying hard these days not to make things too long and this is already a decent length. Also contains some darker, Eastern sections but nothing too dark. Have a listen and leave me some interesting feedback - the more detail, the better.

Description : Simple blues, rough mix. Composed with my friend Costa Zbinden. We will appreciate if someone would add some vocals! Sirup: guitars. Costa Zbinden: guitars and keys. Alex Richard: bass. Claude Barbotte: Hammond. With my own drum loop (here on Looperman, genre blues).
