What did you make before? Or, what else do you make?

Post by two oh one » Thu Mar 01, 2007 11:11 pm

It seems that people are from fairly diverse musical backgrounds here, so I thought it might be interesting to see where different people are coming from.

:)

Let's see what people are making other than Dubstep. Or what they made before Dubstep.

Here's some of my stuff:

Bleed is TB303 abuse. Kinda slowed down Acid Techno, down at an EBM pace with more of an Industrial/Aggrotech stomp to it. It's fairly brutal and the kids like it. I still need to dig out the silver box for a Dubstep track.

Machine Test is part of a series of mechanical Techno tracks I've been working on forever. They're made up of real machinery samples that I record out in the field. This series is where Machine Phase was born from.

http://homepage.mac.com/misterboo/.Musi ... estOne.mp3

I guess I still favour production to be rough and dirty and under produced rather than clean and pristine. I spent way too much time listening to Throbbing Gristle and Cab Voltaire and love that sound.

I've recently been to a couple of Dubstep nights and am absolutely in love. My non Dubstep trax are on myspace- they're kinda
- Glitch, Chill, Breakcore, trip hop, Electronica type tunes.

Link is in my sig

I like the sense of atmosphere in Machine test one- then that tune really gets banging !

Used to make: Drum and Bass, ambient electronic stuff, dunno what to call it really! (Would like to do more of this, but never seem to have the time)

Still make a bit of random grimier stuff as well, but not much of it is up to scratch yet.

Cheers for the links!

oceanzen - Liking the glitch, mate.

Unreachable thought and Existence are nice. I love things that seem to verge on chaos and feel like they're going to fall over but never do. Like Punk drumming.

Cheers- I've got to get Test one finished some day.

ikonika - Some of that production sounds like the stuff coming out of Germany. Has a distinctive sound.


Janner - Liking Man Come Man Go and particularly Busted. Moving shadow, eh? Loved that label back in the day.

i used to make hip hop in an electronic ambient aggressive sample based kanye west sort of way-then i discovered true bass.

you can get a taste at:

www.myspace.com/neurologists

i used to do a lot of work with these dudes. i actually have a hip hop compilation album coming out under my label with some of my production on there. stay tuned for details and future shameless plugs.

primarily weird silly tunes, i dunno what genre some of the shit i make is. i do attempt some serious dnb and hip hop tunes though. im looking to focus on dubstep now, recently discovered it and it seems like a nicely diverse genre that i want in on :)

Good to check out what everyones making, some excellent stuff being written. :e:

Ambient electronica, and the odd electro track when I come up with a nice jumping melody. Never put any of my stuff on the net though, just pure personal use. Might do one day, get some opinions.

Over the years:

Played in punk,2 Tone style ska,Deathrock/Deathpunk/Batcave-y/Goth,Experimental Noise,and dark Shoegaze/4AD style bands.(Still do it,just by myself. :D)

Later began to experiment with Ambient Dub using Casios,tapes,two stereo systems,guitar,bass,popcorn tins,ocarinas,Tupperware,scratched up CDs,chopsticks,and LOADS of effects.

Got my first computer about 7 years ago and began to use it as another instrument,thus doing more electronica.I do a lot of IDM,Glitch,Experimental DnB,Dub,Digidub,Dubstep,Deep Dub House,Electro,a very wee bit of Progressive House,Noise,Ambient,a little Downtempo, some Hip Hop,Trip Hop,and Industrial.

And I am also guilty of doing a bit of Acid and Techno...:oops:
