  1. Do you still hang around here Sam? been 2 years I see...probably not. PM me if you do though.

  2. ha, i just joined this place and I found your page. well, your cryptic marble remix was my favorite. just wanted to see what you think of my chemical plant zone remix

    youtubes quality sucks. it sounds way better in mp3.

  3. Given it a quick remaster so there's more mid in the EQ.

  5. A suggestion - don't sing the whole song at once, split it up, record parts and then put them together in your final. That way you don't run out of breath.
  6. This reminds me of some of the stuff I used to do when I was just starting out. I like it though. Contact me on AIM and I can help you out with some stuff. DistantJUK is my handle. Or distantj@gmail.com if you prefer to use MSN.
  7. You should get somebody to do vocals for you if you're worried about it, cause there's nothing more unprofessional than using a synth lead in place of vocals. Besides I quite like your voice, lol, reminds me of that fella from Monty Python! Just needs a bit of pitch training, I'm convinced you could pull it off with practise. The "take-on-me" backing vocals should be reverberated and maybe some echoes and stuff and I think they need their levels sorting a bit. If I was to cover an A-Ha song, though, personally I'd pick "The Sun Always Shines on TV"
  8. Heh, thanks. I found it was better without percussion, it seems so tacked on whenever I put percussion in it.
  9. Omg yeah that was cool. What a great movie! Thanks for the comments so far!
  10. Every synth musician has to attempt their own Doctor Who theme at some point! That classic innovative theme which used synths (and bits of tape manually stuck together) before people even knew what a synth was, and scared people just because it sounded so odd to them, you just gotta have a go at making your own take on that awesomely mysterious theme song! As much as I love the dramatic half symphonic half synth version in the new show, I thought I'd have a go at a really mysterious one. So why don't you guys have a listen and see what you think! http://www.hooplanet.co.uk/distantj/music/Doctor%20Why.mp3
  11. Awesome to hear Ellywu doing Pendulum style Drum n Bass Keep on being awesome, man.
  12. You into synthpop? Wanna do a cover with me?
  13. In case you didn't work it out from my Cryptic Marble remix, I love ethnic stuff. And I loved this. Really excellent remix. Unusual decision to make the ice theme into something eastern, but it works and it sounds brilliant. I particularly love the keychange right at the end.
