Very Autechre-ish beats here... Loving those pithched down 808 beats, and the artwork is hypnotic, like that ghostly piano from an alternate dimension ruled by intelligent Korg workstations.

Song's quirkyness is both delightful and yet challenging.

I'm sure if Resident Advisor would write a piece about it, you'll be the creator of some whatever-wave internet genre with this one.

Straight to this week's playlist smile

Mmm really liking the soundscape here.

The popping candy beats are right inside the skull, some layers are large things moving slowly very very far away and the in-focus bits are in between.

Also again you got that organic feel like with the manta track, it's like nature and critters moving about.

Gorgeous. Your rhythms always sound so fresh

oh man love those all over the place reverbed percussions

January 25, 2016 11:31 am

wow!

really cool vibe on this! love the glitches and meandering synths. and that gif is bad ass!

I have no idea how you compose stuff but it's pleasantly chaotic-but-ordered in a way that I strive for. Nice sounds too.

Thanks for the comments! Definitely went for other-worldly angle with the melodic elements! Ha I ignore any reference to xx-wave genre gymnastics but I guess if I created blow-wave or another suitably odd genre I would feel honoured smile

Many tanks ! I think organic feel is definitely always at the forefront of my mind when doing anything these days - I think I naturally loathe every piece of software I ever use with composition - but eventually come to some sort of compromise smile

Yes quite a mess and also panning is a little OTT - but anyways

Hey futuristic something running at a uniform and steady rate always wins!

Ironically this track is mostly Fruity Loops (rhythms) but alot of the melodic stuff is all in Ableton

beautiful

@tim koch Oh man! I love/miss FruityLoops smile you must have a good intuition for making things sound stochastic/organic.

Killing it with the gif selection!  Like it was made for this track.  Great stuttering beats + gorgeous melodies.

January 29, 2016 4:15 pm

That reverb on the cymbal!  Gorgeous stuff. Loving the glitchy percussion, use of stereo, and the pretty, unpredictable melody over the top. 

January 31, 2016 11:28 pm

beyond stereo panning. Its in my head. Cool shit!

Digging this track.  Lots of lovely tones with abstract grooves and melodies.
