Another noodl-ey instrumental - the ingredients of this one are a guitar driving a synthesizer and a multiFX over a bed of soft-synths and drum emulator(s).
Tropical karaoke mix of the Sonny and Cher classic
Have a merry Synthmas with this peaceful electronic soundscape from the Men's Snarehouse. [more inside]
A dashed-off not-quite-synthwave instrumental that rolls around for a bit but doesn't really go anywhere. [more inside]
An upbeat synthwave / retrowave instrumental. [more inside]
When a meeting of cultures occurs in a musical setting, something 'unordinary' may possibly occur. But when this meeting involves two awesome creators, it may even be extraordinary. Here Japan meets Ukraine and Canada, as celebrated Red Bull artist Haioka creates his own version of Ummagma 'Kiev'. Enjoy!

Piano, strings, and electronics on a journey across a strange, wide landscape. [more inside]
Instrumental with big tunes and riffs, and a driving cadence that's perfect for cycling (especially if the weather should force you to ride indoors). Bandcamp download (with artwork).
Chords by Oneohtrix Point Never / Daniel Lopatin, the rest by me. [more inside]
Percussive acoustic guitar through tape echo, with processed vocal. I don't know what you call this kind of music.
When it's time to move
Guitar riff by CarrotAdventure
Retro, funky, electro
Sampled a slack guitar to create a kind of organ-sound. [more inside]
Somehow the idea of doing an alternate podcast theme riffing on Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger got into my head a while a go, and here it is. [more inside]
Trying some further electronic stuff.
A synthed out, vocoded take on Beck's extremely non-synthy song off of Sea Change, as an excuse to fiddle around with Reason 8. [more inside]
This one has maybe the most tracks of any song I've ever made. [more inside]
Not sure how to describe this one, but I sampled a lot of disparate stuff and used some found sound I have.
Dancing is for squares. [more inside]
[Radioactive] remix of Low, by Juicy J (feat. Young Thug + Nicki Minaj), sequenced with that earwormy single by Envisage Komodos: If you can't get a radio single out of your head, turn it into a happy house track and put Juicy J on it. I used a clean version to make it enjoyable for all. Complete with filter sweeps and a half-time dubstep outro.
The vastness of making electronic music is really overwhelming to me, so I'm trying to just get over that and create some things.
En roulant ma boule roulant / En roulant ma boule
A fast tempo is ceremonially relieved by a slow tempo
You can feel the beat rising, incrementally, step by step. Melody, chorus, melody, chorus... The air clears. It's that part in the song that builds and builds to it's highest point and then [more inside]
When you conceive of how many tracks go into creating a song and visualize them, row upon row stacked upon one another on the computer screen of the producer's studio, it's mind boggling how it could ever come together in perfect symmetry, especially if the tracks are not laid down at the same time. This is the story of one remix. This is Huge Shark 'Line of Life (Ummagma Remix)'. Trans-continental electro dreamscape. [more inside]
Short, rhythmic, jazzy
Slow-build, lotsasynths, silly sounds
Rhythms and samples
distant sounds: slow, forward-moving, reminiscent; warm ambient winds + tumbling bass
When synth and guitar blend with electronica and vocals that are not too up-front in the mix, but not totally phased out to be lost in the mix, often some really nice sound is what can happen. At least that is what we think happened here with this track. [more inside]
Blackalicious remix. Video.
A short little trip
So much music, so little time. Even in the mind of the remixer, likely that expression would sound something like "So many remix options, so little time"… which is why we're lucky there are so many different great remixers in this world (yes, there certainly are a lot of terrible ones too)… But here we have a wonderful remix by Brazil's Mind Movies of Ummagma's track 'Lama'. Certainly do hope you will enjoy this vision too.
Different synths, different arps, different drums
A mix of cultures often results in something beautiful - interesting art, world views, beautiful babies and intriguing music. And you don't have to be from either of those cultures to appreciate how wonderful this can be. This song represents a melange of two cultural infusions - from Canada and Ukraine. This is Ummagma. Enjoy. [more inside]
Ever hear a sound that falls and rises at the same time? This is NOT a song that captures the feel of No Shave November. [more inside]
A good climb!
