Newbie (1/14)

  1. I'm currently undertaking a Bachelor of Music degree in composition and music production at the Australian Institute of Music in Sydney. One of the units I took this trimester was an ensemble collaborative class. Typically these are for performance or recording, but this was the first time such a class had been run with the goal of creating a soundtrack for an indie video game. Myself and five other students wrote the music for Postbug, a Boulderdash-esque indie game developed by George Hemingway in Melbourne. The game is now live with our music, which can also be bought/streamed via Bandcamp. (I'm Joel, and I contributed the track for levels Jelly Drain, Water World and Bug Fort.) It was a rewarding experience- working to a brief, consulting with the developer and collaborating with other musicians with diverse styles and skill sets. I'm looking forward to more work like this in my next trimester, and have also lined up a paid job writing for another game developer (I'll likely post about that when it goes live!)
  2. Various Artists - Italdred x Dred Collective: Techno
  3. Hey guys, I've just uploaded my 30 minute entry mix for a national (Australian) drum & bass DJ competition. I've been DJing for a few years now, but not entered before. If you're after a high-energy mix of dance music, give it a listen. Stream / Download Here Tracks marked * are by Australian producers. Tracklist: P-80 & Rattraps - Sleepless* JETS - Pink Beat Tripletrain - Too Obsessed Ital Tek - Gonga Moresounds - Riddim Again JV - Standover* Jonny Faith - Zheng (Anomie’s Delirious Remix)* Machinedrum - U Don’t Survive (Chrissy Murderbot Remix) Fidser - Got My Bottle Rattraps & Luisterwaar - Dreadnought* COMOC - Grind It Iljus Wifmo - Frenetic* Heart Drive - When Droids Cry Letabruthaknow - Tear Juker (What About Us)* EDIT: The entry mix landed me a spot in the Sydney heat, DJing in front of about 200 people. I scored a tied second place! Here's my live mix recorded on the night: Stream / Download Tracklist: The Winstons - Amen, Brother Beach Club & Relic - Jungle War Dub Alix Perez - RIP N DIP Lennie de Ice - We Are i.e. (Om Unit Edit) Mark Pritchard, Danny Breaks & Om Unit - Alien Titmarsh Riddim Moresounds - Hour of Doom Africa HiTech - Out In the Streets VIP Rattraps - Is It Really Love?* 4hero - Mr Kirk's Nightmare (The Renegades Remix) >> Traxman - Callin All Freaks Tripletrain - Too Obsessed Beyonce - Mine (Machinedrum Remix) Spinscott - Variations Ticklish x Boogie Dan - Wanna Be Your Lover DJ Rashad - Drank, Kush, Barz (feat.

  4. Hey OCR, Been a while since I've checked in, but I've been steadily chipping away at writing tracks over the last two years. Here's one I finished about a week ago, drawing inspiration from Chicago juke, classic Warp IDM/ambient sounds, dub and drum & bass (as well as a cheeky Motown reference). https://soundcloud.com/scatterbrain/where-did-my-baby-go EDIT: This tune has been officially released on Various Artists - FuFa Music, Volume 2 - a free download via Bandcamp, compiling tracks from 13 Sydney-based producers, in styles ranging from hip-hop and trap to footwork.
  5. I love you too, man. :3 Hope to see you soon!

  6. It's been a while, but here's a new mix! Scatterbrain - By the Time I Get to Phoenix Mix A selection of dubstep and related sounds by artists that have featured at the Void and Index club nights here in Sydney, Australia.
  7. Wisp - Honor Beats (Sublight Records // SLR1003)
  8. Ah, thanks Skryp! I hadn't done a drum & bass mix in a while, so this evening I thought I'd procrastinate a little (university composition assignment due tomorrow, of course!) and put together a few tunes I've been digging lately. Tea and A Biscuit Mix
  9. Bumping with more audio goodness! I recently had the pleasure of playing the opening set for Clark (Warp) and Ikonika (Hyperdub) here in Sydney - it was a crazy night, with sounds ranging from banging/funky house to gritty, lurching beats and 180bpm breakbeat chaos. I recorded a redux of my set from the night, which follows on in a similar vein to my previous mix - a selection of garage and techno-inspired dubstep. Check it out! Index Reduction Mix
  10. If you wanna head back to the roots of your original post- this here is the kind of thing being replicated: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRIA66Mq9EU For more melodic content, check High Contrast, London Elektricity and B-Complex and the Hospital Records and Spearhead Records labels. If you want newer stuff with slicker production, but still maintain the bassweight, check out artists such as Misanthrop and Phace and the label Neosignal. As for dubstep, here's a little shameless self-promotion - a mix I did recently of deeper, more spaced-out tunes. Thread / Mix For heavier dubstep, check out Vex'd, Distance, Goth-Trad and some of Skream's material. Another useful link to keep up-to-date on bass music in general is FactMAG - which features free, twice-weekly mixes from a variety of top-notch DJs and producers as well as info on new/forthcoming releases, gigs, etc.
  11. That source tune is brilliant - very nice choice! EDIT: I love this 'related video' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M50uY59CCPc - Perhaps someone can fuse elements of the two jungles?
  12. Donkey Kong Country / Aquatic Ambience - Submerse Remix http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BejAOKJt-Zk Wow. EDIT: From UK garage to grime:
  13. Bumping with a little mix I did tonight - 50 minutes of spaced-out rhythms, at about 140bpm. [thread / mix]
