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!
Chanting has long been a tradition within world cultures - nearly everywhere you go in one form or another. When chanting takes the form of vocals with lilts, overlaps, intersections and emotion, it can be particularly powerful. That is what 'Winter Tale' seeks to embody. Enjoy.
Chords by Oneohtrix Point Never / Daniel Lopatin, the rest by me. [more inside]
A love song transcending space and very much linked to a time, a feeling of weightlessness. I'll let the lyrics speak for themselves: Cosmic lover Made up my mind I’m not going home This is where I’ll stay With you Long as you’ll be here So will I In our space In our space Orion is closer Now than ever Get to know the universe Around us I can feel your movement When I see you Every morning Every moment Every motion Whenever we drift away
Space has long been a stimulator for creative outlet in nearly every sphere of human activity, music being no exception. In this track, it is clearly front and centre, whether it for you brings an association with the cosmos or you internal realm. Happy listening.
If psychedelic space rock can be sparkly, this song would be the epitome of that dynamic.. Or shimmery or glistening or whatever. Glitter is in the eye of the beholder.
Space rock is a term that is often over-used for various psychrock tunes, but it is dead on for this track from Sounds of Sputnik. Or space post-rock or even space post-rock shoegaze. Looking forward to your take on that.
Kinda moody, kinda sci fi hip hop with a lot of synthesizers and reverb and stuff. [more inside]
I decided to try sampling something from porn. You probably wouldn't notice if I hadn't told you. [more inside]
I got infected by the spirit of National Motivation via Trend Month, and started writing and recording music for the first time in a long while. This is the first song that popped out. [more inside]
Spacey, instrumental, bongo-heavy breakbeat-driven jam with vintage analogue organ sounds sampled from a Baldwin Funmachine. Picks up where the first half stopped and has more of a prog-hip-hop vibe than the first section. [more inside]
Spacey, instrumental, bongo-heavy breakbeat-driven jam with vintage analogue organ sounds sampled from a Baldwin Funmachine. This part contains an ambient section. Long story detailing the composition of this song inside... [more inside]
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
i made this a few years ago, spacey and twisted, no lyrics. still one of the songs i've done that i'm happy with. mellow. some more stuff on my myspace, let me know what you think of what it sounds like inside my head.
CollaborationFilter: I had this song I could never considered finished because it sounded dreadful in my voice. Then I discovered Metafilter Music and here I discovered chococat. Like pretty much everyone else who heard his music, I was blown away. And so I asked him if he would help me out with the song. Cool guy he is, he did. And this is the result.
Moody, deep and spacey. This is one of the first tracks I put together in Garageband going by my solo name "SysOp". I love the low bass notes that rattle the speakers. All original loops.
