I know there are a few people on here who produce music so I thought I would start a thread where you can post up your latest tracks and works in progress, maybe even start some virtual collaborations.
here's something I was playing with earlier (needs work and somebody with working ears to check the levels)

I thought this was going to be about bathroom hydroponics.
Not that i do such things.

Cant help with your question, but had a listen and i like the tune. A long cut would be cool, feels like it just gets going about 2:30 in. Nice shifts and textures. Id buy that.
Links to any more?

I like the cleanliness & sounds of the first track , think it could use a little more depth , subtle melodies & hooks in the background maybe ? Nice potential i would say .

2nd track is very catchy made me want to bust out some BBoy moves within 16 bars , yep like that .

Is that a bit of Floyd & E L O in the 3rd track ? love the vibes of that one , think maybe the mix could do with a little finessing , some subtle blending , really nice sounds .

Now this 4th track thats dope man love that shizzle fa rizzle , its like a lot of the stuff coming out of the French Underground scene at the moment , Quality love it .. 80) Big Smile on ... Ethereal Steps indeed Superb man !!

I would be up for a collab (not dubstep though haha). I am good at the engineering side of it but usually lacking in musical creativity. I am good at percussion and rhythm but woefully horrible at melody and that sort of stuff. I keep meaning to go to piano lessons to pick some of that up but never get arround to it. :)

In reply to lost1977: Hello, funnily enough I was thinking of starting a thread like this but for lyrics as well as music, was going to call it lyrics thread in the culture bunker or some such. My works in progress are on my profile page, these are the lyrics to hippityhop

F*ck fabulous cats, liv'in flash, lov'in cash - as for tomorrow, live rash

Can't get me working 9-5, no drive, I'll stay away, from that nose dive

Besides, I don't see the obligation to a nation, that isn't unified

Consumed with profit, can't drop it - I want no part of that demise

So I'll sit back relax, forget tax ignore what's happening in front of my eyes

Realise, there's purer things, beauty in amongst our lives

It's pretty mean, liv'in lean, floating in an abstract open dream

But in my own way, I'm just raging against this f"cking machine



Keep my mind off the money and the money off my mind - don't let it breed - this furious need

Secularise, from the hive

Keep my mind off the money and the money off my mind - don't let it breed - this wanton greed

Realign.



Just cut on back, give slack, we're not racing for the finish line

It's fine, it's quite divine - to forget about the daily grind

The prodigy of technology is there to free up most our time

Easy to see, without much change, we just got to slightly realign

Politic has lost, gone bust, can't speak the truth cast votes aloof

Consumed with image, can't bridge, reality to the pledge

So don't compromise, anarchise, visualise - there's so much more to find

Live for the dream, rage against the machine.

In reply to shaun l: I like your lyrics, are they to be sung or spoken? Song title is more of a mystery to me, unless you split it to hip pity hop

In reply to Game of Conkers: Hello, all my lyrics are either rap, or a riff then shouty line. This one is rap. The name is totally meaningless, just a made up word. I think anarchise might be a made up word too :S

Do you stem mix & master as well? I like to get my stuff mastered afterwards. If so can you PM me your rates please? :)

In reply to lost1977:

Nice one. As I said, not massively musically creative but I put the effort into the engineering side of it. :)

All my stuff is done initially in reason, it's a great tool for composing.

There are hundreds of good tutorials on youtube for reason, you will not go far wrong looking there.

In reply to stroppygob:
Cheers guys! Yeah Youtube has been my faithful guide so far, though sitting listening to dopey stoner hiphop producers drone on and on is not a great way to spend a weekend. Probably explains the dreary nature of some of my tunes! Just starting to learn how to use the samplers and its making a BIG difference.

I tried to use Ableton but could not get my head round it at all. Anyone use it?

Was this done in reason StroppyG ? Really like the idea , sounds used not sure if the pics do it justice though , especially like the last half & think this could evolve into something wonderful .

...is my ambient incarnation (first two tracks are covers, go down to "Tree..." for the original stuff

...is the space rock alter ego (a la Ozric Tentacles), hope to be uploading one more to this sometime soon, if I can ever get the mix right!

In reply to LaMentalist:

Thank you. Yes, that was all done in Reason, if I remember rightly I had about 60 samplers stacked when doing that.

You are right about the images, I whacked them on with little care just to have something to show, I should revisit that.

I may do a similar thing for my more recent stuff, and take a bit more care.

Here's more of my malarkey (dropbox download);

All done in Reason and fine tuned in Audition
