Description : This is sort of an Alien-ated Retro-fitted Dance-amacallit I worked on last year 2015, and totally forgot to upload it. Oh well, better late than never, right? - It's prolly not something normal humans might dance to, but if there are some aliens in the house, then feel free to get your groove on, LOL. Peace.
Description : Just having some fun with a little more Metal, but what goes good with Metal these days? Well, that would be good ole Darthy-Boy, the King of Biomechanical Darkness, Lord Vader! If he was to lay down a track, I think it would go a little something like this. Hit It!
Description : HAPPY HALLOWEEN! - Remember that old PC video game called Blood 2: The Chosen? Well, Stepping back into time inspired me to make this track. I miss good games like that and I wish somebody would make another Blood Game while using the same characters. I probably should explain a little bit on how I got the audio. It wasn't easy, that's for sure. I managed to record some of my playing session audio. Then I had to manually adjust all the measures and tempos and separate the sound effects. Tweak the quality a bit. Add some special effects. Make a few variations. And so on, and so forth. Loaded it all into a compiler and tried to strategically place a nice arrangement that would somewhat give a good representation of the game as I felt it should be. So, In loving memory of a great abandoned game, I present to you this track. - Not for sale. Available for download (free personal use only). - Switching genre to Cinematic, because it is related.
Description : This is a track I made for a "How To" YouTube video. I didn't really give a title, other than indicating it's a first edition. Although I put it in the Hip-Hop genre, it's more of a groove than anything else. I thought maybe somebody else could use it in a YouTube video music background too, or a remix, or something. You have my permission to do so already. Just remember to give me credit and let me know what you created with it. - Edit: Moved to Weird - Edit: Moved to Trance - Why? Because I can't make up my mind... lol
Description : This is another track I made for a "How To" YouTube video. Again, no real title other than indicating it's a second edition. Although I placed it in the Metal genre, there's a little surprise Hip-Hop package in it about mid-ways. You may use this track freely, but please remember to give me credit. Let me know what you come up with too. Thanks.
Description : The reason why I call this "The Nut Drop" is because I actually took a hex nut and dropped it onto a metal cart to get a metallic ping / bang. It's the noise that sort of sounds like a jet buzzing by. The complimentary vocals were all done by me. I can't sing worth a lick, but I can Holla'. Although I placed this track in the House genre, it's more like a House-Funk-Techno-Bass-Trip-Hop like deal. It does contain low bass (which is more the heart of the track), so you can dust your woofers off a little bit. I set the bass on a 2.1 system, therefore you'll have to tweak your EQ for headphones.
[the name of the game is Fun... NOT popularity]
... and this is my split personality reviewing my own track...
You're just weird, man! - But cool.
Switch genre to Funk(y)
Description : "Bell of the HydroFlame" is just a title I threw at it. I like to think of it as... Bell for an actual bell, Hydro for the jazzy orchestra wetness, and Flame for the hot beats. I warped the bell a little to give it a longer duration and give it a touch of darkness. But then I give it a slap in the face with a bit of happiness. It's like a battle with feelings in this... sort of. - Edit: Moved to Pop
Description : Okay, I think I had a power trip while making this one.
Is there such a thing as having too much fun?
Here's the story...
In the distant future,
In a galaxy far far away,
The God of Metal still reigns,
And he unleashes his creatures of the night,
Forewarned he will come,
and justice will be served.
I call it... "Dark Pulse"
Description : (I updated this track with a voice melody, because I wasn't entirely happy with the old one.)
The Drip Vaping Beatboxer is just a little something I was toying around with. I made every single sound from scratch with nothing more than a cheap mic, my mouth, and my computer. Not a single conventional musical instrument was used. It was a pain to do, but I wanted to see if I could do it.
For those who don't know what "Drip Vaping" is... It's electronic cigarette lingo for dripping nicotine fluid directly into an atomizer and taking a draw from it. The sizzling noise in the background of the track is a recording of me actually using an electronic cigarette and drip vaping. The loudest part of the noise is the sound of air flowing into the E-Cig. - Switched genre to Weird, but we really need a World genre somewhere on here, or Mood, or something.
Description : I thought I would try some trance and see what I could come up with. The robotic voice is me. Some of the sound effects came from my old DarkBasic royalty free media collection. AcidPlanet provided the bulk of the hearty loops, but the variations, mods, and tweaks are all my idea. I worked on it until my head exploded and said I can't do any better. So this is the final cut... I'm tired... enjoy
Description : This is the first time I've ever done anything like this. It's amazing what you can do with a little effort. The funny thing is my brain, mouth, and beats just wouldn't sync up right this time, so I had to do some crafty editing to make it sound okay. Not to mention I think I have a terrible voice, so I doctored that up too (handicap alert... lol). And, NO, I didn't use auto-tune. It's more fun playing with the transpose keys (okay, I guess you could count that as semi-auto-tune).
But anywho... the setting... pretend you're in New York clubbin', it's after midnight, you're still drinking, and you don't care what music is playing... okay?... now click PLAY.. ha ha
Description : I wanted to create something that other people may relate to. "They Took Me" has a dark alien touch to it. An abductee has a message for you from a place far, far away in the extremes of the Universe.
It begins with an incoming spaceship. Then surveillance scanning. Then Extraction and complete removal of a human. For what purpose?... Your guess is as good as mine, use your imagination. The ship leaves, but it may return again some day.
Voice and some SFX are my originals. Others are modifications from royalty free loops. Beat and tunes are from an Acid Pack, but of course I just had to alter them a little bit (can't resist).
As a special note: Many years ago I believed Ancient Alien Astronauts were going to return and collect their children (US). Although I don't believe anymore, this track still represents my old past passion for Alien Vistors. I suspect this track may mean something special to others, and so I dedicate this to you (you know who you are).
Description : I found some loops that jogged my memory of a very old dream. I'm running down a path through some woods. I'm trying to get away from a wolf that seems to chase for sport before making a kill. In the real dream it never ended, but in the track I draw an obvious conclusion to complete the dream.
The explicit content is only 1 word "s**t", some people don't mind, but others do, so the track is marked accordingly.
For full effect, listen with headphones.
Warning: Metal music at play. Noise is art.
Description : Thought I would try a track with lots of distortion in it. I had fun bending a few guitar segments to make it cry a bit. I couldn't come up with any vocals, just couldn't get the music to talk to me like that, so I just let the tunes do the talking for me this time. I guess it's still not bad for a first jab at this. Not sure where to stick it. Rock? Metal? Dance? Country? Trickety-hip-bop-doo? Countrikancametock? Let's try Country... naah... Let's go with Rock for now. On second thought, maybe Country would be okay.
Description : I was playing around with some Acid packs and picked out a few loops I thought were interesting. In the process I got a mental image of a large outside field with speakers placed in multiple sectors (like maybe for a concert audio test). Somebody has to get out there and check the equipment during the test, so get some audiophiles out there for an earfull. With a little imagination, some homemade radio chatter, and me trying to make different voices (not an easy task with my southern accent), I came up with this gig. My goal is to make you smile. Hope it works.
Description : I call this "I Don't Know" for a few reasons. 1) It almost sounds like the guitar is saying "I Don't Know" in a wah-wah way. 2) I don't really know what to call this track. 3) I don't know what lyrics I could squeeze in it, therefore I didn't design it for lyrics. So, it's just a big I Don't Know track. - The thing about me is I usually spend a lot of time just listening to each individual loop over and over continuously until I can paint a flow in my mind and mate it all together. After I find what fits where then some variations just materialize in my mind with the flow and I make the proper adjustments. It's like working on a Bonzai Tree. You just cut away what you don't want to be there. - But sometimes it's like particular frequencies in a dull grouping interfere with my imagination and prevent me from going any further. It's weird and I've never understood why that happens. But, I always try my best and this is what I came up with this time.
Description : Ever had something on your mind and you wanted to get it off your chest? And, it didn't matter who heard it just as long as somebody heard it? And, you also wanted it to be productive at the same time while you're sending the message? - Well, that's what this track is. - Check the Lyrics page for detail.
Description : Just something I threw together for some background audio. I used it on YouTube. You can too, if you want to. You're welcome. I stuck it in Hip Hop because that was the largest inspiration, but technically it's like a Ethnic Hip Hop creation (don't have a slot for that)... I'm a proud weirdo... lol ... might be considered a little pop, let's try that too.
Description : WARNING, this is creepy stuff...
Universal as in "from the universe", Bass as in "it's got some", Phantasm as in "phantom having a gasm" (not to be confused with the movie). Crank up your woofers and dust them off a little bit. It's not mega-low, but it's low enough. Stuck it in Techno temporarily, I'll probably file it under Weird later, or maybe fusion, or maybe trance... IDK. - True factoid, I never aim for a specific genre. I do what I feel and I am random like that.
Description : Finally got around to making another track. Set your subwoofer on low and slowly increase it. I call this one "Suicide Bombers" because it sort of sounds like old bi-planes flying around and nearly diving to their death. Explosions and other SFX are just background drama. Releasing this the day after 9/11 is a total coincidence and has nothing to do with that horrible day... enjoy.
Description : Was playing around with some old ACID software and came across some sequences I totally forgot about. This is a marriage of Hip/Hop Scratch, Metal, Mellow Pop Alternative, and Rock at 111 bpm's. Done my way, of course. For those who have been around ACID compilers since 1995, you'll probably recognize some of the loops... Brings back some memories... Have Fun!
Description : Acid Loops were used from the following collections, Afterhours EDM, Evolver, Trance NRG 2. Some SFX and Vocals are from an old Sony collection. Other additions and mods are done by me (The1Observant). It's not really Dance and it's not really Trance, it's more like Electronica Evolution. It will make you move and feel a sense of well being. You may be able to detect I had trouble with the blend and merge, but that's what happens when you get rusty. But, I still did my usual and built it to match my mood. Perhaps you will like it. Enjoy.
Description : Cinematic Jazz Hop (or Funk), with a touch of Western Rock in the middle. Most samples came from an Acid Planet 8 Pack (Magic Boogie). A lot of the samples have been edited (discard what I didn't like). Also found a Buzz Congo loop that seemed to fit in there nicely. I have not done my best on this one. I was just playing around because I haven't done one in a while. Plus I wanted to see what I could mix up with some horns. I might revisit this one some day. Meanwhile... Enjoy "As Is".
Description : Samples in track are a mixture of an ACID GITM 8pack, an old Music Studio library, and an ancient video game developer library. These include popular titles like from Afterhours EDM, Electronic Point Blank, Iced, Liquid Planet, Modular Electronica, and White Rabbit Asylum. This track portrays a vision of immortal enemies from a digital realm. No matter how hard you battle and win, they keep coming back.
Description : Here's something a little different for your ears. Industrial Jungle Rock Meets Soul. Is it love at first beat? Or should they break up? You Decide.
Aural-E, Chicago Fire, Electro-World Percussion, MetaRock Visions, Jungle Groove, with mods and variations.
