Description : My Dad found his old 8-track recorder. I think he was going to ask me if I was interested, but I was already half way to my room with it and a new song forming in my head.
This track is more of a straight-forward folk song. The opening is completely recorded on the 8-track, so it's a bit more lo-fi. Then the track kind of opens up into a cleaner chorus. I hope you enjoy my little experiment.

Description : I've been in a bit of a musical funk lately, so I worked on this a little bit at a time, building it up. I kind of wanted to capture my frustration and the hope that I will break back out of my shell. Let me know what you think.

Description : I had a lot of fun recording my last folk song, so I thought I'd take a stab at recording another one. This time I limited myself to 2 for all my vocals and instruments (guitar, piano, ukulele and organ). Enjoy the song and leave a comment letting me know your thoughts :)

Description : A kinda chill out, hip hop track that I created a year ago and didn't finish mixing for some reason. Thought it was a shame to waste so I thought I'd finish it up and share with you guys. Let me know what you think.
Note: I think I got the beat from LM originally. I've chopped it up a lot and changed the tempo. But if you recognize it, let me know.

Description : So I've been a way for a while, completely at a loss for creativity.
Then last week I was reading through my old notes and found a four line poem scribbled on the back of a page. A week later this happened (Whoop). Hope you like Sci-fi :)

Description : This is a very personal song that I wrote about 3 years ago. I've tried to record it a couple of times, but it's never quite worked. But I think I've pinned down the sound this time. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : I've always wanted to make a track about how it feels to suffer from anxiety. On days when everything seems so incredibly overwhelming, it seems that the mind becomes a manic, unwieldy, crunching machine that doesn't want to stop.
I can honestly say that the song in itself has caused it's fair share of anxiety, with over a hundred homemade samples it's been a difficult beast at the best of times. Anyway, it's here now, please enjoy.

Description : The best way to deliver a heartfelt apology? A rock ballad in 3/4! Not terribly original, but the vocals were all done in one take and the experience has been very cathartic for me.
What do you guys think? Feedback is greatly appreciated.

Description : This song has been driving me insane for 3 years. I've demoed it several times, each with a different approach, yet it's true form has always eluded me. Last time I had a go, I think I may have uploaded a version of it to LM about a year ago. Thankfully I feel that I have finally cracked it.
This isn't the final version, so please let me know if there's anything you think I should tweak in the mix. Thanks for listening :)

Description : I found an old recording of me playing guitar on 8-track and decided to use it in a new track. All parts have been recorded using analogue equipment. I've then slowed down, sped up or reversed as I recorded them digitally. Then came the difficult part, attempting to piece it all together in ableton without everything being too out of time (there's no way to make it perfect).
Once I'd EQ'd out some of the loudest hiss, I started applying effects and eventually mastering it all.
What you get as a final product is a simple song executed in a very weird way. I'm quite happy with the disorienting effect. I hope you like it too :)

Description : This is little something I've been working on in the background. Whenever I got bored of mixing something else, I'd work on this.
This song is all about energy; pushing forward until you can't go on.
There's no vocals this time, which is a rarity for me. I hope you enjoy. AND MERRY CHRISTMAS! x

Description : This is a song that I will often sing to myself if I'm feeling like crap. Apparently my friend likes the song, so I invited him to jam out a recording. This is the result.

Description : I'm not a madonna fan at all, but I can appreciate a well written song and I always had a soft spot for this track.
So I tuned everything down half a step (so I can try to sing it). Then I cut out part of the second verse ("love is a bird and she needs to fly...") because a shorter refrain before the next chorus works in my arrangement. Then I just went mad with it. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Description : I've been rewatching a lot of John Carpenter movies and listening to the soundtracks. I've also been bingeing on 80's gothic synth pop. So I thought I'd give the genre a go. I had fun making it and added lots of different references. Please enjoy and let me know what you think, comments are always greatly appreciated :D
Update: Levels and EQ on Vox and piano have been tweaked. 1 bar has been removed from the extro.

Description : This is an old track that I wrote and recorded during a really low point in my life. I wanted to share it, so I cleaned it up as best I could. Let me know what you think.

Description : UPDATE: Intro now starts with piano instead of drums. There's a whole new section at the end. Please leave a comment letting me know your thought. Thanks x

Description : It's been a while since I've uploaded anything new. Lack of inspiration and a broken audio interface kinda ruined my creative streak.
Anyway, I managed to steal a bit of time at my friends studio. This is what I made in a few hours.

Description : I love movie soundtracks and I love lyrics that tell a story, so I thought I'd make something that had a bit of both. I hope you enjoy :)

Description : I had a vocal melody stuck in my head, which is not how I usually start a song. I also realised that I never seem to use the vast wealth of loops on this site. So I used a beat by laurentwirz.
I ended up with something that feels to me like melancholic chill-out. Thoughts?

Description : So I really wanted to have a song ready for Halloween. But I've been so busy watching Stranger Things that I almost ran out of time. I managed to pull this track together. It still needs some work. But I think it's acceptable to show you guys. I think it's dark 80's electronic pop, but there's no genre tag for that. So electronic will do.

Description : Happy new Year fellow loopers!
I was going for a Depeche Mode sound. Thoughts?
Update: Vocals re-EQ'd to reduce low frequencies, Reverb space increased.

Description : The latest track I've been working on. I uploaded this as a demo, but started experimenting with different sounds. I wanted light and dark. So there's light acoustic and dark electric guitars. Airy synths and moody bass. Kinda like how it's turning out. What do you guys think?

Description : I wanted to step away from electronic music and just make something simple and heartfelt. SO I gave myself an hour to write and record a track. This is what I made.

Description : This is another 1-hour song challenge. This time I'm stepping away from acoustic ballads and going for something a little louder.
I also must admit I overran by a few minutes because of technical difficulties during the recording process. But I got there in the end. Let me know what you think :)

Description : A track dedicated to my love for 70's exploitation cinema and well... weird cinema in general.
Please note: Some may find the sample offensive. And back in the 70's it was made to be so. The film was written by a gay man and the lead was played by the worlds first modern drag queen, Divine. They dared to challenge the world and this is my tribute.
