Altergrammed Carbon

By brian botkiller on January 24, 2016 10:25 pm

I'm really into Cyberpunk everything, and so I've been writing more music that leans towards that aesthetic.  This one is for wandering the streets of Neo Tokyo at night, pursued by hunter robots bent on sending you back into the carbon. It's a lo-fi retro wave electro track with a nice groove.

Produced in Ableton Live with Push, using Imposcar, Massive, Reaktor.

Watch your back, shoot straight, conserve ammo, and never, ever, cut a deal with a dragon.

Soo good!!!

Great electro vibes, but I wouldn't mind if you eased off on the heavy sidechaining.

Digging that pad of stacked fifths. Would have loved to hear that come to the fore some more.

Nice groove! Dig it

Dude, absolutely love it!! I too am a sucker for that retro cyber-punk aesthetic and you're nailing it. More please!

Yeah, I just kinda prefer it for the aesthetic of the track.

It feels a bit too fluidy for a theme that's all about tight.

Great track! The only thing is I feel the bass would be better served appreciated rather than side chained. Just my personal preference. I love hard edged bass for aggressive tracks.

Serious impact from those drums, super-hefty bass...surprising drops and transitions...loving this piece.  But I really don't want to be caught by the robots.

I was going to comment on this track but I was ended by a killbot

I might change it at some point in a future release, but I pretty much always sidechain my bass in some way or another.  Depends on the track, though.

Ha! D'oh. I meant to say "better served arpeggiated...". Hopefully that makes more sense.

Ha! Yes, that makes more sense. I use arps on like, everything tongue I'll fool around with the sidechain someday.
