Ghost – Remixed

In 2013, over a decade after the original was released, I finished the remix of Ghost. Here it is.

The original was re-released on a Goa compilation at some point and is available on Spotify.

Woodchuck

What started out as a simple percussive beat became a two-track release, titled Woodchuck. Centered around organic woody hits and deep, rolling synth, the Original Mix is layered with a dubby soundscape. The Acid mix takes a different direction, with driving basslines taking things over. The latter also features a sample from a friend’s presentation at Adobe Max, recorded years ago. She seemed cool with me using it. Thanks, TK.

Pull the project from Blend:

Or, pick up the final version from Beatport:

Woodchuck (Acid mix) has been removed but it might reappear here in the future.

Opek

I recently updated my studio setup and even found some time to produce some music. Producing on an iMac for the first time ever has been pretty sweet. After using Nuendo for years I’ve also made the switch to Ableton Live for composition and arranging. UAD-1 became a UAD-2, and I’m trying out some of the new Signature Series plugins from Waves. The first product of all this is Opek, a percussive techno track with a thick ambience and a cut-through main riff.

Brand New Alek Biotic Production: a double dose of Eezvor

After years of hibernation I finally managed to piece together just enough time to complete a brand new dance track titled Eezvor, coming your way in two mix variations.

While less percussive than some prior Alek Biotic works, Eezvor’s minimal techno influence is heard while its driving bass and synth lines provide enough energy for the prime time sets. The Dark Mix provides a more focused, flatter vibe while the Original Mix reveals the melodic, source riff.

Eezvor is my first completed production whose structure was created largely using Native Instruments’ Maschine. This amazing piece of kit combined with great, upgradable software is super fun to use and arrange on. Individual tracks were exported to Cubase (also a first as I’ve previously used Nuendo) where they were processed further and augmented with additional tracks, elements and effects. The final mix was mastered in WaveLab using Universal Audio, TC PowerCore and Waves plugins.

Eezvor is currently shopped around and hope is to have the original wav files available asap. Guest remixes are also in the works. Stay tuned.

Exclusive: Joe Bond – Woosa

Since you really dug the last post featuring Joe Bond’s Continental Breakfast, we’re really psyched to present Joe’s follow up effort: Woosa. Yes, that’s right – another exclusive track, with the machines still red hot from it.

Tech-house fans will hear lots to like here as Woosa is one of those fresh jams that sets a very cool mood in a set and opens a door to a completely new direction. Personally, I’m a huge fan of such versatile tracks and will definitely look to feature Woosa in a set.

You up for it? Woosa up!?

Exclusive: DJ Surv – MNML Funk

Already established in Malta, Surv is becoming a presence in the New York minimal techno scene with new residencies and tight dj sets. But I was happy to learn that he’s also actively producing new material. In this exclusive we present a fresh Surv production. Enjoy.

Open Source: Magic Money

Open Source We’re back with another exclusive from Open Source.  Like Cold Room (covered here previously) Magic Money is a departure from Matt’s older techno productions, but maintains the dark vibe, intelligent arrangement and crisp production.

We’ll be on the lookout for more material from Matt in 2011.

Kill By Inches – Desecrate The Flesh (with Jeff Blanchard)

Ink was the topic of a few KBI tracks, and Desecrate The Flesh is probably the first one that comes to mind. Many versions were recorded, with different vocalists and guitarists.

This one was recorded on January 12, 1998 at Electric Plant Studios with Jeff Blanchard (check out his new band: Eyes Of The Sun) on vocals and Kev, Steve and me (Alex) laying down the rest. A heavy-ass track, this one was often requested during live shows. I’ll put up a another version of it soon.

Exclusive: Cold Room by Open Source!

A huge exclusive coming from Matt Antico currently producing as Open Source and better known by his techno handle DJ Eleven. You may know that Matt was also a part of New York’s premier acid techno tag team PS11 joined by Preston Space. (In fact, both were covered on trak.fm in the past, most recently with their live video set from DownShiftRadio, which includes a special guest, yours truly.)

Anyhow, I’m thrilled to present Matt’s latest work: Cold Room which, while a departure from his techno ego, maintains the dark and perfectly arranged elements characteristic of Matt’s prior works, though transformed now into the Dub Step format.

We look forward to future releases from Matt, and in fact may have another one here pretty soon.  Enjoy.
