Today I’ve been thinking about the major pentatonic scale. It’s a scale that players in most styles of music know. If you don’t know the sound, think the bass line from “My Girl.” Most people approach this scale as root based to the key they’re in. For example, the song is in C major, you […]
FULL DUBSTEP! I got to go full dubstep with this one. It has a wonderful sounding vocal, so I brought all the glitches, growls, wobbles, and beeps that I thought would work with the voice and chord progression. I enjoy working in this tempo as well because there’s more room for some tricky drum fills […]
I love complextro and glitch music, so for this remix, I combined some noisy sounds with an FM sound to make the bass track. I also got a little lucky and got the hi hats to swing just the way I wanted. I like to make peak hour kinds of music with lots of energy. […]
For this remix, I took a pretty understated, quiet track and sped it up, and then used some cutting sounds to give it more energy. The bass sound is a combination of sounds from Rounds, by Native Instruments. I’m finding that its ability to combine digital and analog synthesis into one complex sound makes for […]
This is a remix of a techno song that I made into more of a house track. I did most of this on the Maschine, which is something I’ve been wanting to do, but hadn’t gotten around to until now. It has some fantastic sounds in it, and is fun to finger drum on. I […]
For this remix, I wanted to work to create a big bass sound by combining digital FM synths and analog modeled subtractive synths. This had a fun vocal melody to work with, and I enjoy making fills and breaks that don’t land on the 1, so that was another aim to accomplish here. The original […]
I’m going to be doing as many remix contests as I can find, and I will post my results here. I’d like to get some notoriety, so if you like anything I do here, please share it with your friends. This is a nu-disco remix where I played live guitar and bass in addition to […]
Normally I do VERY open format, so I wanted to make myself work within the confines of a festival or club setting. This is some electro house, indie dance, nu disco, and house music that I enjoy. Hope you like it too!
