Description : How does it feel to do a more than 2000 miles Roadtrip? Well, it is fantastic. The biggest freedom I have. I need the "Autobahn", different countrys, different moods, rain & sun, something to eat, a ferry and off it goes in a 30 yrs old Merc. I wanted to bring the feelings into a song. And here we are. The initial “Groove” does come from a cheap Casio Keyboard I bought at a flea market. Listen to a simple 60s. sample beat. Thanks to our community for some loops and let’s start the engine.

Hey Oli

mate thought come listen to something other than the last track I reviewed, now this is very nice, This is the type of music I like, you are right this is something you could listen too while out on a drive, great clarity listening to it on headset, great filling of the headset with plenty of space so you get to hear everything you have achieved in the mix, nothing to fault in this track mate, glad I came back to checkout another of your works, big time Fav'd...Peace and much respect on this one my friend...mosaic..

Sounds authentic. Definitely Kraftwerk-esque. Nice to know that Casio keyboards can still be of useful purpose.

This is so authentically cool. I really love to know what keyboard that is at 02:46 into the song. Those keys are fire man. It's like the best part for me. All in all, a great showing. I actually lived in Germany for a year and traveled on the Autobahn as a passenger in a Mercedes Bens bus. Probably the nice public bus I have been in back then.

It sounds like you have been around for quite some time. You really have amazing in depth skills at what truly works. Well done, I enjoyed this.

Hi Eric, thanks for your reply. The Keyboard is the famous "Hammy" in the NI Reaktor library. A famous software synth. And yes, that's a powerful sound. Actually may I should build a dance track around it. :-)

very strong intro VN, the synth work is mint clean, love the balance of the drum track too its loud enough to make a statement but not crushing anything the brass sounds or nice also, yes their is a little Kraftwerk vibe but i think thats sub-conscious though they are the standard bearers in this genre, they contributed to music massively and inspired lots of the modern genres of today, good work, it was nice listen bro

Many thanks for your reply. I did felt in love with the into also so I decided to extend it to give it the real feeling when starting the trip going through Devon county side before arriving at London M25 :-)

Hello and good morning.
The first thing that came to mind, of course, before I even heard a note from your song, was “Kraftwerk.” I spontaneously asked myself whether you had the courage to produce a homage. Even though it's not quite like that, I think a lot of that ended up in your song. I even have the impression that if "Kraftwerk" were to produce their song "Autobahn" today, the result would be very similar to your song!
I don't need to say anything about the quality. You are a great musician and also a great producer. And I will definitely look forward to my husband on my next drive home with the words "nachts um drei auf vier und um fünf bin ich bei dir"
Kind regards and have a nice Sunday

Wirklich ein hervorragender Song. Ich freue mich auf die Veroeffentlichung? Dieser Song hat großes Potential!

Hello Manuela. Also a big thank you for your feedback. Did I think about Kraftwerk whilst I was producing the song? Not consciously. But, in one of my earlier radio shows I did play the song as an example for typically German influence in music. So it may was my subconscious mind giving the song a distinctive direction. I am still looking for my Audience for this kind of music. When I found it I will release it (next to Soundcloud and Looperman) :-)

WOZERS! You can always tell by the quality of a track by where the producer is either seasoned or simply have a good understanding of music, you seem to seriously know what you're doing when creating music & especially music that makes the listener envisage, allowing the imagination take flight.

You definitely captured the feeling you were going for, I actually felt I was on this road trip & this musical journey was mind-blowing. The track is filled with a plethora of sheer musical joy! a stunning! track, not a moment of boredom just pure musicianship. It's Not the destination it's the journey & this was a beautiful one. EXCELLENT! Work! :)

Many thanks for your strong feedback. That encourages me alot. I found out that producing music a very deep emotional process, even when you cannot feel it at the moment. But it is the moment when I am pressing the button to upload my music that changes everything. When I'm still loaded with all the feelings, it will be conserved in the carrier waves of my music. It took me a lifetime to internalize that.

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.

Description : This is one of my earliest productions that I did at the start of my recording career. I did not have a keyboard at the time I made this song, so I improvised and used my sister's iPad and a 5 dollar GarageBand application instead, and plugged the headset jack into into my PT6 rig and did my best to turn each individual track (which were mono and there were about 25 tracks or so) into a stereo image. Then recorded vocals over it. My computer was so old and slow that I had to mix my music and then BOUNCE it to a new session - four times. My computer (which had 512 MB RAM and an 80 GB hard drive) couldn't handle more than 8 tracks at a time or it'd stop working because the processor couldn't handle it. Took me FOREVER to do. But I got it done. Had a lot of fun doing it too, even if it isn't my "best" work. I'm still happy with it, considering I didn't have many tools to choose from at the time.

Description : Long time lurker first time poster, pretty new to production n stuff, this is my first track in Ableton Live.
was going for a darkwave/synthwave sound, reminiscent of Justice, Carpenter Brut, Perturbator, ect.
Looking for some feed back, constructive criticisms or even just your thoughts if you liked it or not. This is just a rough cut on this current WIP, just the bones of it if you will.. If you have some cool title suggestions, would love to hear those too.
Thanks for listening.

Description : Far out mid-tempo fat beat deep chillout grooves with Eastern/Arabic and slightly menacing vibes, huge delayed synth bass and a great palette of psychedelic layered and intricate sounds (mostly synths) and a stirring, epic feel. Even has guitar solo section reminiscent of some 80s power rock which is then followed by a brief synth harp solo. I began making it straight after staying round the flat of the flute player from the legendary Ozric Tentacles - easily the greatest ever space rock band. I made this in about 2001 and still think it might be my best track (and it's nice and short, for a change). My production skills were much weaker in those days (no EQ, compression or mastering used here) but, somehow, this one turned out pretty much just right. Feel free to disagree. Now sit back and get ready to trip extremely far out. If you manage to return, let me know how that trip was...

Description : Got some spare time finally...just started on some random ideas basically (lets say kygo meets alan walker). A blend of dubstep,edm,downbeat,tropical etc.
It's still a work in progress, so i would appreciate your honest inputs. Thanks to all those whose loops I have used in here, sorry I don't have time to search them out.
Edit-added some more filthy sounds from my previous tracks and gave it some ending. Advice will be helpful.

Description : Love the unique style and dark vibe of the acapella so I gave it a go and ended up with a Mid tempo/Bass house track. Got the acapella off here If you're wondering. I don't make a lot of bass house so any pointers or opinions in general are always appreciated.
