Inspector Gadget (Marked Features Remix)

19 10 2011

I made a new track, remixing the Inspector Gadget theme. Most of what I did is cutting, looping and some effects. Again, this was made using Reaper.

Enjoy :).





PULSECODEMODULATION @ ORCHARD RADIO

5 10 2010

I decided that my music knowledge needed a refresher and enrolled in a few audio/music applications courses. For one of the classes, I get a radio spot on an internet radio station. I have had radio shows in the past but this time I want to focus on modern electronic sound and the various subgenres within the spectrum of this thing we call dance music or techno.  I recorded my first show and posted it on the WCC’s Orchard Radio Facebook.

Here’s the first show sans the announcements.

Movements of Happiness

1 08 2010

Jon has posted a few of his sets from percussionlab on the blog earlier (https://muzikigan.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/mixes-mixes-whos-got-the-button/). I thought I’d try my hand at playing and recording a dj set. It comes in at just under an hour, with a mix of dancy stuff, electro-indie and other related joyous musical nuggets.

Daft Punk – Remix After All

28 06 2010

Daft Punk’s phenomenal album, Homework was one of the seminal techno albums that really pushed me into all things electronic back in the day. Every single track is a burner. I have so many memories when we used to rock out to these jams

They since have slowly developed their sound and morphed into a live force to be reckoned with whether DJing or putting together a full Live PA show for big festivals. I have a few remixes for all you mixheads out there to check out.

Daft Punk – Emotion (Werewolf By Night Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – On Off (The Noizy Kidz Daft Zapping Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – Technologic (Kids At The Bar Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – Television Rules The Nation (Dirty Disco Youth Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – The Brainwasher (Melee Beats Remix).mp3

Daft Punk – Remixes After All rar.

cheers.





DEMF (aka Movement 2010): Detroit Electronic Music Festival

7 06 2010

Last weekend (Memorial Day Weekend), two of us bloggers here went to all three days of DEMF, and had a blast. It was crazy sweet, seeing some sick acts from classic techno to dubstep and downtempo. A couple highlights:

First and foremost, Pretty Lights brought down the house. Monday evening in general was just out of control amazing on the Red Bull stage, but my favorite by far was Pretty Lights. They did a live set with a guy mixing and a live drummer. They put together music at a little slower of bpm, but with huge downbeats, sweet samples, and great rises and falls. Within seconds of arriving on stage, the place was packed to the gills, superhot, and heaving. Arms went in the air, rocking the beat. This group does a sensational live show. Do not miss. One song they played was:

Pretty Lights – Total Fascination

Another favorite was A-trak, who played a dj set on Saturday. He’s got a real hip-hop vibe, and actually toured with Kanye West as his dj. The whole show had some sweet energy, and he was clearly having a blast doing it. The best piece of the show was a remix of Daft Punk’s Robot Rock, with an inserted sample saying “Barbra Streisand”. I wish I could that recording. And my favorite track by him (and how I heard of him in the first place) was his remix of Heads Will Roll by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It is awesome. Unfortunately I only heard from over by the porta-potties.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-trak remix)

Great shows!!!





Synthpop paradise: NightWaves- She’s Electric (Short Circuit Remix)

27 05 2010

I came across this synthpop group Nightwaves and listened to some of their music. My favorite song is the Short Circuit Remix of She’s Electric, see the link below:

And for download: http://www.mediafire.com/?ztmjgmdizzd

It has a pleasant but energetic low synth keeping the music moving. The clipping is really smooth. I think the best evidence it’s good is that I just keep listening to it again and again. Hope you like it!





Bloody Beetroots

29 03 2010

The Bloody Beetroots are an italian electronic music duo. They have remixed a lots of songs, and they are always really intense, usually with a strong, aggressive low synth. The remix of She’s a Maniac is fun, really upbeat, and energetic. It kind of feels like your heart is hyperpalpitating. Others I’d recommend are WARP 1.9, Jolie Fille (The Bloody Beetroots Remix), I Am Not Drunk (Bloody Beetroots Rmx). It’s hard to listen to them for too long, but if you want music to scream at the moon with, this might work.
