Wow. Much improvement from the track I listened to a few years ago.

Why has nobody bothered listening and commenting?

 

I mean, pretty fuckin good for a guy with an actual job (unless that changed)

Thanks man. I really appreciate it. It took me quite a while to get to where I was starting to be confident that I was getting a handle on all the various skills required. I've probably been at it for about 20 years now. The hardest part is completing a track. It's really easy to make a cool beat and put a baseline and whatnot over it, but turning it into a whole track that evolves in a way that can keep a listener interested requires perseverance.

the first one and some of the more trancey reminded me of eye q records stuff.  Nice stuff

 

I like Acid/time the most  , faster stuff, I usually like them harder

Thanks. I didn't see your post before. I actually wasn't sure if anyone was still listening to these and if there was any point in posting more. I'm not very involved in the forums these days except for the small amount of moderation required, so I don't blame the community if people aren't that interested in what I'm doing with my music these days. But if even just one or two people enjoy my music, I'll keep posting stuff. :)

 

I recently messed up some of my mastering because of an incorrect setting on my mixer. This caused a few of my mixes (including Voyager 7 above, but mostly ones that I haven't posted here) to sound very thin. I've started remastering them, and Voyager 7 is done now, and well worth listening to again in my opinion. I've been working on some housier stuff recently, so will probably post some of that soon, but in the mean time, here's the sequel to Voyager 7. It's more hard trance, but has a 'playful' vibe that I think makes it a bit more interesting. When I'm producing, whatever track I'm currently working on is my favourite, but after the dust has settled over time, I realise that some really aren't as good as I thought, but others are better than I realised. This is one of those tracks that I listen to after working on half a dozen other tracks and it really stands out as having something special to it that I wasn't fully aware of while I was creating it. Hopefully someone else enjoys it as much as I do.

Just listened to some of you stuff

 

You got some nice stuff big improvements from the beginning. Easy to lissten to with some nice beats and bass drops can follow an get into it

 

Constructive criticism, maybe work on your melodie flow, its nice but it feels slighty out of sink if you get me ( sorta like like 2 tracks randomly playing over each other) an change it switch it up a little . Maybe ease off the back ground stuff slighty to much going on. ... maybe some faster thuddier deaper bass 

 

But all in all not shabby man keep up the good work looking forward to see more :lol:

Same reason I come here to share it. I post other places sometimes, but I've got much more respect for the opinions of the community here than on some random music forum.

Thanks for the feedback. It's much appreciated.

 

 

 

 

Here's one of the House tracks I produced lately. Not super sure how this genre works because I don't listen to it much, but I'm pretty happy with the result regardless of whether it follows the 'right' conventions or not:

Keep these coming, brother. Please don't stop, even if you're not getting much feedback. I'm really loving it.

Not sure what style this would qualify as. It's got psychedelic elements, rock/blues elements, and house elements. Whatever it is, I like it.

I kinda lost my way with identifying music style, probably in the last 20 years, give or take. So I've given up. When I listen to a piece of music for the first time, I like to be in total darkness and otherwise silence and just listen. I found I liked a much broader range of sounds than I expected. I've used music extensively to help when I've been in the dark places. 

 

I haven't listened to all your stuff yet, but this one is currently my fave. It's almost anthemic in that I find it uplifting, inspirational. It gave me the image of a piece of music in a movie, playing as the protagonist drives with resolute conviction toward the final, culminating scene. Love it, man. Love it. Thank you so much. :)

Acid/time is a killer song. 

 

I too have not beeing so active in the forums for some time, I had even lost my passwords and was locked out for some time. 

 

The names of music , heheh, yeah this has changed. Many names are really unneeded. Music nowadays  mostly if not all is crossover., mixture of things  I think the most unneeded and stupid names exist for the rave/techno/house  culture... but recent metal labeling are also equal in stupidity.

I'm not sure how I feel about Acid/time. It stands out amongst my music as having unique qualities, which in itself is something positive, but I don't listen to it and think "this is perfect. there's nothing I would change about this". As for genre names, I think of them as mostly a convenience to help people find things they like. For me, it also helps to find new inspiration. I'll often look up a variety of examples of some particular genre and try to emulate some commonalities without actually copying anything from an individual track. Sometimes I end up with something that actually sounds like that genre, and other times it just sounds like my own style with those elements incorporated, but I always walk away with a larger toolset that I can draw from in the future.

 

With that said, here's my take on techno:

 

 

Yes, a lot of my track names end in "7", lol.

Some pop:

 

I put this up on soundcloud about a month ago, but I was planning on remastering it before sharing it around. I spent a while tweaking it to bring out the base and kick a bit more, but I think it lost some commercial pop charm in the process, so I'm sticking with this original master.
