Description : Another site specific mix (no DL as its a WIP)
Decided that I'd mess with some Rock this time (since it's been a while since I last did anything with the genre). I started with the bass originally rolled for another tune (that didn't pan out). On the track (in order of appearance)...
Me (bass)= www.looperman.com/loops?page=1&mid=64965&keys=melting&cid=2&order=date&dir=d
Alividlife (drums)= www.looperman.com/loops?page=1&mid=158799&keys=bosca&cid=1&order=date&dir=d
HMNN (pads)= www.looperman.com/loops/detail/24187
& Holly (vocals)= (refer to *Lyrics section)
This still needs some work (will probably pick it up again tomorrow) and I may expand this (dunno though, kinda like the current length). What do you think? Suggestions welcome! Hope y'all enjoy. Enjoy!

5.) My Funky Voc-Synth stuff=
And I think that about covers everyone. Massive thanks to those who shared their stuff on here. I hope y'all dig what I did here. 'Til next time, stay well. Lates
Description : So this time I decided that I'd ramp up the showcase series I sometimes do. To include loops from other artists & even an acapella. Yeah, this was loads of fun to mix and I'll include the list of folks I used below...
Bass= yours truly
I wanna thank everyone for sharing the above and hope yall enjoy this lil puppy I did. Lates!
PS. Might not wanna start this @ full volume ('specially the subs, coz it's kinda intense, just FYI and all that).
Description : So here's the full version of the collab between Laura & me (slightly dif from other 1). Dropped the last bit (with other bass loops that I'll add on here later), added some bassy brass & extra drum stuff (percs & more kicks), polished up the rough bits, etc.
Genre-wise, is it House, New Age, Synth-pop, Cinematic? Eh, bump it... I'll just through it into Dance again (feel free to voice yer opinions there though). Yall should def play this with a woofer (for full experience). Hope yall get a kick out of it & for those who haven't heard the original here's a link to it...
And here's her SoundCloud page if ya wanna check out her stuff...
Description : Continuing on my "Folktronic" journey I swing by Russia.
In my quest I stumble across a few that stood out. This being one of them. The song is most famously known for being the song Type A on Tetris for Gameboy, but its based on the song Korobuska (alt. Korobeiniki) that was written in the mid-1800s.
Figured that I'd return to my House roots with this one. I threw on some pads & effects to give it an 'in-space' sort of sound. Including a few from ShortBusMusic (sweet pad in- Aminor & Cminor).
His Loops page is here...
Hope yall can dig this revision of the classic Folkloric song. Lates!
Description : Originally hosting- Manipulation (LC Rough Cut Orig Vers)...-...-...-
For some odd reason I'm getting that ~Track page view error again so I've decided to swap out an older one for this newest piece...-...
This marks the second time I've ever tried messin with Breaks and Goa-Psy Trance. And marks the first time I've ever heard the two fused together like I've done here. The name comes from the way the one lead synth on this sounded like it was saying (that's right, those're keys and not something I vocoded). It's crazy, isn't it? Anyways, decided to keep this shorter because I only rolled 6 channels of sequences for this. It probably could stand to be a lil longer, but I'll leave it up to my friends to remix (if they'd like to, email me for the file/s). Well, I hope yall can dig it (c/c if ya wanna). Later on!
Description : So...
This was something I did early last year and I was sadly taken down in my attempts to resolve the 'Tracks Section view glitch' I was encountering late last summer. I forgot that I had intended for this puppy to be a possible collab (having posted a good number of the stems for this in my Loops Section shortly after initially posting the song before).
So here it is again, for your iPods, mix stations, etc.
The name comes directly from the sample I found of Louis Armstrong talking-it-up with the crowd before going into one of his band's song. Then the song takes off in a completely different direction with the electro craziness that you'd expect from me, haha. Well, I'm headin outta here yall. Be easy!
Description : Track time- 2:19
This was something that I started in April, I think. Back when I was on one of my 'Live Instrument kicks'. In relistening, the tempo change up for the second part was unintentional, but I actually like how it works for the mood of this song now.
I put this into Classical because I felt that's what suited it best. And that leads us to the title- Again, in relistening I was reminded of the Guilded Age goodies of yesteryear's masters. The piece screams movement. Not just in it's melody, but almost physically. As if I could see myself atop a majestic steed. Starting out at a reasonable trot, charging right up to a full speed run, and then easing it back to a mid-paced gallop. Beginning outside of some regal estate decked with fountains, Rose gardens, and all. On a semi-cloudy day. Heading left in the direction of the wooded country. Ending up along side a meadow that's bordered by some meandering stream. The clouds thicken and the light of day begins to wane as my Horse and I begin to turn to head back home.
Sorry for that mini-story there. It's just what this causes me to see. Perhaps instead of a solitary Equine maybe it's a carriage full of friends. On their way to some ball maybe. Lemme know what yall think. Later on everyone!
Description : The actual name of this song is Back 2 The Block (Chem Bros tribute beats), but I decided to make a special change for the site (since it is a showcase of stuff that's exclusive to here, the "Junglish Fishsticks" set).
So I'm bringin this back because I remember that I had this up as a possible collab. Made this a couple of months back using only loops from one of my drum series I added about a week earlier (Junglish Fishsticks). And it was also made to answer a challenge issued by MrE to come up with a drumpella track.
The name comes from the fact that this reminds me of an old Chem Bros song (a nod to Block Rockin Beats, but I'm not sure if that's the song it made me think of, I know it's on that album though) in a way. So I figured that since it's been 10+ years since they dropped that chune I'd treat this as a sort of revisit to that bygone era of electronic sweetness. Alright, nuff ramblin outta me. Hope yall dig this (and lemme know if ya wanna get down on it). Later on!
Description : Time- 3:41
Yep, you read that right- I only used one loop to make this whole song! It's another DV record!!
The idea for this came a little while back and it's more of an experiment than anything else. I just wanted to see if I could do it (and pull it off too). Really dunno what to say about it. Except that it feels like a House track.
Making it was relatively easy. All I did once I found the loop is modify it's pitch and it's tempo. Throwing in some reverse here and some diminished stagger there.
The name came from the game coz I useta love playin it growin up (it was big at my high school). I'll upload a cool image I found when I did a search for it on google after I'm done uploading this. Well all, I'm gonna head off now. Hope yall like. Lates!
Description : Listen to the original- Eshar's By My Side Remix
She picked Techno so I am too. (smiles). Anyways, had some difficulty finding the original coz she's got it disabled at the mo (shrugs). Hey Elaine, this one's for you chica.
There have been a number of her songs that I've felt inclined to mess with. This one took the Cake (and ran, haha). Yeah, this track has been nagging me, pleading for me to remix it. So I did and this is what we came up with (so far, might revamp this a bit later on).
I just went to town on this, going crazy with the reverse and adding in some effects here and there. Not as many as I normally do, but enough for it to qualify, I think. Dunno why, but Detroit Nights kept poppin into my head tonight when I was mixing it. So I went with that approach.
Though originally, I was wanting to go with a cleaner & more basic approach instead. Breaking this down to the core samples and loops to import 'em into another program of mine to add similar soundfonts so I could channel isolate 'em (like the bass or the drums, etc). That would've taken a whole lot longer though. So for this version I took the lazy route. Shame on me, shame, shame...
The remix name comes from the back & forth action mixed with a current trend among certain couples in their night life activities. The echo part has to do with how I tried to place emphasis on parts of the vocals.
I would say that this is kind of a rough cut that I'll need to work on tweeking later. For right now, I want to share what I've done so far. I hope yall dig my Spin on this truly amazing song. Later on yall!
PS. Now you can D/L this. And if you do...
PPS. I mixed this in a way that will
allow you to seemlessly repeat it
over & over again.
Description : Greets again. This was somethin I did about a month ago for a project in my Basic Speaking/Listening class. Pertaining to my Informative speech topic- Digital Audio Workstations & Productions. Since my time was limited the teacher suggested that I make a 30 second song for the class (I shot a lil past that making it 46 seconds)...-...-... I'm putting this one in Fusion, because I tried creating a song that everyone in the class would enjoy (blending orchestral/cinematic strings at the intro/outro with breakish electro beats, ambient bass, progressive guitars, and digitized vocals by yours truly- that I'll prolly add to my loops here later).
UPDATE- I've gone and reworked this piece, extending it out to just over 4 minutes. This is like a love letter to my favorite movie of all time, Tron. As well as a nod to the new film coming out Friday... Who else is going to see it? All of the vocals are me (with various effects thrown on). I may go n tweek this mix later, dunno. At the mo' I'm gonna go with this vers just to see what others think of it. Alright, well I'm headin off now. Enjoy!
Description : Alright yall, here's another Looperman Collab joint. This time it's from my keyboard again because lately I've been on this live instruments kick and have been wanting to do more with my stuff. It was recorded at the default 120 BPM and seems to fit best in the House category. Feel free to do whatever ya want with this. Later on yall!
Description : Not necessarily an Acapella, nor is it really a song. Of which, I'd classify this as Abstract House, maybe? Anyways, this is somethin that I just was messin with for the past couple of hours and this kinda goes out to that one guy who said he was pullin outta the site (See, it aint that hard to come up with something cool from scratch). The backbone is me beatboxin or hummin, but I went back and added butt loads of effects. I was figurin if any of yall wanted to do somethin with this ya could. So, here it is, there you are, there's a Duck, and enjoy!
Description : Greets all! I'm gonna throw this into Fusion, though it's my first attempt at making something Dub-like. Though admittedly I am kinda all over the map with this one. Jazzy drums and sax, electro-ish bass and leads. This track also marks another first for me- it's the first time I messed with using a public address (political). The vocals come from FDR's inaugural speech and when I threw 'em on something just fit, ya know? Somethin about the things he said seemed to hold alotta truth today. I didn't even have to really edit the last half much (either through convenience or lazyiness, shrugs). Either way, I hope yall dig this truly odd puppy I whipped up. Later on!
Description : I'm putting this into dance because it's where I think it falls now. Even though I started out wanting to make a trance now I think it's more of a trance-house fusion (possibly with one or two other things spritzed in there too). The song is pretty basic and I'm kinda surprized that I was able to take it as far along as I did, timewise.
Anyways, the name comes from this being my final weekend of the summer before fall semester begins. I wanted to give it a fitting salute and with a wipe of my kerchief what was once sweat will morph into the cool breeze that shakes the autumn leaves. So here's to one more day of soaring temperatures (and children having fun about the backyard sprinklers). Hope yall enjoy this. Later on!
Description : Umm, I guess it could be considered Fusion since I mixed Funk Bass with Rock Drums, and Folk-like Guitar with some dreamy pads to round out the mix.
And this, my friends is a tribute to all of the great stuff that came from the original Nintendo (and in some ways is a nod to some of my friends on here).
I finally geeked out goin to town with some Midi loops.
The Bass comes from Arkanoid, the Guitars come from Metroid, the Pads come from Zelda II, and anyone care to guess where I got the Drums from? Come on, it's today's Daily Double. Bonus points are through the roof, haha.
Anyways, I hope yall dig my latest... Creation? It was really fun to mess with ('til the end when the final Pad loop didn't want to fade out right away, grrr). Off for now.
PS. Feel free to remix or mix this one yall!
PPS. It sounds better out of headphones.
Description : So this is something I spoke with Esh about doin mid-last year and she sent me an email with the stems that I completely forgot about. Discovered the Zip file with 'em the other day when I noticed the 'attachments' part of my email thingy. Thought it was odd (and I guess new) so I clicked on it to see what it was all about. And in the 175 messages with attachments is where I rediscovered the email she sent me.
So 1, 2, skip a few and I started working on the Hard House version you hear now (but since that aint an option I put it in Deep House instead, amirite or no?). Originally I had started work on another project for this in the attempt to do a more beats/breakish focused mix, but when I started messin with one of the bass loops she sent me I opted to take it in this direction instead.
I'll also be adding some of the loops I made for this mix (so yall can play with 'em too). Anyways, I hope yall dig this joint I rolled for ya. Later on!
PS. Opps, almost forgot that I used one of Mhyst's loops from the Awakening remix competition too.
Description : When I was making this song I felt that it could use some vocals so I did some browsing and came across this nice one called Sweet Feelin by MrShammi=
Which marks the first time I've ever messed with any Acapellas off of here. This also marks the first time I've ever made a full Reggaeton song (the last time was just a drum sample I've got on here in my loops section, entitled Sweet Beat Salsa). I was wanting to go a different route this time so I chose this genre since its so awesome (amirite?). And I've been wantin to throw my twist on it for a hot minute now (since about 05 or 06), bout time, yes/no? Haha.
Anyways, the name comes directly from the 'pella (the feelin we get when the DJ starts playin some heavy stuff). And musically, I kept it really basic (only 3 channels). For the Leads I decided on a sound font that would be reminiscent of early 90s Techno/Pop stuff. Might go back n add some extra stuff (like horns n strings), but for the mo' I'm gonna let this fly. Hope it can lift yall spirits & add it to yer iPod if ya wanna. Lates!
Description : Am gonna put this into Fusion, as Trip-hop/Folktronic/Hip-house aren't currently avail options on here.
Stemming from the previous folk song remix that I did I was wanting to try my hand again and venture out into another part of the world. Did some hunting and found this Japanese folk song from the Edo period (that I recognized). Decided to mess with it and ended up taking it in a sorta Housey Hip-hop direction. The name comes from a 60s film trilogy that I caught a few years back. Done to kinda contrast the original song's theme/meaning. Hope yall can dig this crazy piece I've churned out for ya (and feel free to DL/mix/share/etc). Lates!
PS. Forgot to mention yesterday
that I used a loop from Lemon_Melon,
here's the link to it...
Description : So yeah, I originally wanted to start off by creating a tribute to good ole Bilbozo, but I ended up benching that idea and just decided to go with somethin new instead.
All in all, this is 4 channels- real simple stuff. I created the first synth Lead channel first (the mid-toned ones) and the rest of the song kinda built off of that. The drums are an absolute rip off of Mag's Livid (or whatever it's called). I didn't wanna mess with drums really on this one. Since my primary focus was the NanoKey. So after that I really quickly added some bass from the Drum&Bass synthesizer on Magix. After that it took a dive into la-la land. Yeah (will explain better below)...
Does anyone remember the first Dune film? With Patrick Stewart, Sean Young, etc?
Okay, do you remember the scene on planet Geidi Prime (home of the Harkonnens) where the Baron was boasting about something and his silent sidekick was standing there- grinding a black box (I guess would be akin to an alien pair of Bag Pipes). Anyways, that's what I was shootin for with the second set of Leads (the higher, f*ed up ones). Tryin to capture that whole Glitchy strangling a space Cat with a thing of Gladwrap, while holding it underwater.
I put it under Weird, because you'd have to be on some pretty intense stuff to follow this. Sanity has officially left the building here yall, haha. Hope yall dig this first day 'quickie' I threw together for ya. Download it too, if ya wanna. Later on everyone!
PS. I almost forgot- the name came
from the whole game trend that I've been
on recently. Anyone remember the NES
Max game controller, yep, nuff said!
