Experimental electronic tracks I've prod...uhhh...cranked out
This is what happens when I get bored of the music I have and decide to do something about it. This tracks don't have great post-production or mastering and are the result of my attempts to produce music. Its all pretty experimental music. However , having said all that, I can assure you that:
-None of this stuff is cheesy.
-If you like experimental music and are willing to explore and keep your mind open, you should like atleast some of this stuff. If you find this too experimental for your taste, keep in mind that people talk about how "trance is dead" and nothing innovative is being done.
-I'd rather put more effort in making the beats and rhythms varied, than in polishing the tracks. I never repeat a beat or rhythm, so the track stays fresh throughout. The emphasis is on producing interesting experimental electronic tracks.
-I make this stuff to satisfy myself, they reflect my tastes, and I love all the tracks.
I'm putting them in reverse chronological order because it makes for easier listening. In the sense, the last one produced should be the best since I've learnt more.
1. Acid Retort [Soundcloud] [Download] [BPM 92] [23MB] [10:16] [Drumstep]
I tried making a 'journey' dubstep track. Yes, I hopped onto the Dubstep bandwagon, but I retained some trace of self-respect. It's fairly experimental - there's some acid and epic synthwork mixed in there. The first half is completely bass driven, but midway you have this transition into a trippier, acidic second half, to make a complete journey track.
2. Psyrogyro [Download] [BPM 171] [19.9MB] [8:31] [Psy DnB]
This track is aimed more at the body than at the mind, and its meant to be heard loud. Its jump up in parts, neurofunk in parts and psytrance in parts and it never lets up, good fun throughout. The point of this track is to combine psy and DnB in a dance floor friendly way without getting commercial/cheesy.
3. Scorched Acid Policy [Download] [BPM 185] [18.1MB] [7:55] [Acid/Psy mixed with DnB]
This initially started off as a acid breaks track a la Acid 8000 but then I discovered Drum & Bass. I looked for Acid DnB since I figured they would make a wicked combination. Unfortunately I couldn't find much. Being completely taken up with DnB, I converted the track into Acid DnB and I hope you like the result. You might find the intro a bit long, but thats just my weakness for long, and hopefully interesting intros.
4. Back to the Bass-ics [Download] [04:08] [BPM 125] [9.5MB] [Electro-House]
I got tired of making weird stuff that no one "gets", and at the same time I discovered that electro-house is really groovy stuff, so this is my attempt at jumping onto the bandwagon and making something that is "in" and "cool". It also has a cheesy commercial name to go with it!! No, really, this tracks is fun, enjoyable with lots of funky bass, relaxed bells and the complement of tweerps and beeps you can expect from electro. I have also worked on the production aspect on the track this time, you know equ-ed the sounds and stuff so it should sound a lot more professional than the previous tracks =]
5. Fever Dream [Download] [10:11] [BPM 139] [25MB] [Psychedelic Trance]
Yess! My best one till now :) This is complicated and psychedelic, and both the intro and climax and nice and acidic ;) It has some nice rhythms going on and builds well, plus its got my favourite movie sample, the one from the end of Bladerunner in the middle. I've tried to have multiple layers throughout the track so you don't loose interest over 11 minutes, and a symphonic layer throughout to lend atmosphere. In parts, the the kick hasn't been used in the usual 4/4 sense, but more as another layer. IMO this is good from the melodies/rhythms aspect, I need to work on production skills though. And I need to make something commercial which everyone can appreciate and which gets made in 6 hours instead of labouring over complicated, experimental stuff like this which no one appreciates anyway =p
I know you'll probably think they need polishing. All tracks are made off FL on my laptop. Any feedback is appreciated.
