EROS Part 1, THE CONCEPT

The first part of EROS took an enormous amount of time; ranging from taking me months to days, mostly months for tracks to come together. Unwarranted Surveillance was pretty much written in a day! That just means I employed a lot of learned techniques quickly to the track and was able to create a fun experimental melody that works with the other heavy bass sounds in the track. Positron went through about 20 different iterations and took about 4 months; Positron and Stabilize my favorite tracks of the EROS, Part 1 album, but I’m extremely happy with how all of the tracks have turned out. This is an introduction to the concepts of the trilogy album and will evolve with Part 2, and 3. EROS is a three-part adventure.

The EROS UNIVERSE ARRIVES

EROS is a concept album, a post-apocalyptic (you guessed it right!) space station that houses the criminals and fugitives of the intergalactic police, namely the Nemoans on the moon of Mars, EROS. The Nemoans are a race of giant toads that police the allied galaxies and are self-entitulated rulers of the galaxy, due to their military’s superiority. Toads are known to consume entire planets, some by themselves. Nemooah, the emperor has done this several times, though it is recognized as a legend by many rebels. EROS is the pinnacle of their demonic society and is influenced by my trip to Poland when I was 21. Part 1 contains 12 tracks about the technology and hero of the saga, J the alien. Part 2 will introduce Nemooah.

The Villain.

Emperor Nemooah is one of the universes most grimy and slime coated giant toads from the boggy swamps of the gas giant, Xaxis. Xaxis was destroyed by humanity in 2119. Nemooah’s revenge was the end of humanities occupation of Earth. Nemooah now lives deep within the swamps of Earth, eating crocodiles and whales occasionally. The remainder of the people’s of Earth now live in EROS, an energy producing virtual reality space station build on Mars’ moon. The energy gathered from the human bodies continues to grow as the humans become more and more complacent with their virtual prison. Hope for the future of humanity and the universe is fading.

There is only one being that is known to have escaped the Nemoan Federation since the beginning of time; a species, actually. the emperor has learned of their technology by the slim remains that he was able to find on Earth’s moon. He calls the race ‘novaborn’ as it appears that their technology requires the birthing of a new star, and not just any star, but one formed in the thickness of a new nebulae.

This is the beginning of the story for our hero, ‘J’, who is the last of an extinct race of ultra advanced cybernetic organisms. They are called, the Novites, or the ones born of stars. J wanders galaxy in search for new energy sources that could help to provide a future for his extinct race and their technologies that once spanned the universe. He is the last one.

Prelude to EROS Part 1

Drysithe was sure that he would die. Ever since he heard the transmission, his left eye twitched incessantly. This news wouldn’t sit well with the Emperor. Nemooah would surely execute him, like his predecessor. Nemooah didn’t even hide that he would one day kill his messenger, he had no fear of his younger cousin whatsoever. He would fade into oblivion, like his father when he failed the strike against Newetan

“The NovaStar has awoken, my liege.”

“What are the readings?”

“They are immeasurable… forces involved were too fast and powerful to even withstand basic readings… it destroyed our sensors. Specially, during the nebulae absorption process; we didn’t even begin to catalogue or record the birth… It has escaped through some kind of wormhole or portal at the end, my lord.” The undertoad looked down at his emperor’s corpulent feet with terror, he couldn’t stop his left eye from twitching. His veins felt like poison, his heart pounded.

“Do not fret, Drysithe.” Nemooah took a long moment to cackle, his amusement at Drysithe’s discomfort was unfathomably light. His many uniform decorations clanged against each other on his enormous chest. “I would never expect to catch a Novaborn during birth.” Nemooah sighed disaapointedly, letting loose a slight tumult of saliva and the dead remnants of his last good meal. “We will search the galaxies for the energy signature we found today; we have what we need! The initial data should be plenty.”

“Excellent, Emperor Nemooah, this is such excellent news!” Drysithe tried not to look at the dead toad at Nemooah’s feet.

“Indeed, it is for you Drysithe; today will not be the day that I eat you. But perhaps tomorrow..” and with a smacking of his tongue against his toad lips, Nemooah launched himself outside, then tore into the softer ground with a massive launch into the heat of the blazing nearby star. He used his jetlike rocket-pack to disappear into orbit on the horizon-line; headed for the nearby moon and the Nemooan intergalactic space station that shadowed its orbit with massive spires and rings that swirled endlessly in magnetically enhanced patterns to create the massive energies needed to travel between galaxies. space-station’s rainbows of color struck Drysithe as he realized that he would love his wife and see his child this hallowed eve. Tears streamed down his face and nothing has ever seemed so beautiful as the station, radiating brightly against the dark oblivion of the beyond.

Crave – the E.T. [Electro-House]

Crave - the E.T. (cover photo)

Crave – The E.T.


Crave came together over the course of a few months, the layering of the lead synths took a while to plan. I feel like this is one of my best produced tracks yet and I certainly put a good amount of time into it.

It doesn’t exactly fit into what I am getting ready to create with my next album, but I certainly feel that the track is well written, so I am releasing it as possibly one of my last singles. I am feeling heavily into writing albums and am pretty excited about the idea of creating themes around the tracks to give them more purpose.

Electro-House and Modern EDM

For the past week I haven’t even been listening to much EDM. I’ve been actually getting really excited about older Pink Floyd tracks to find sounds that are more uniquely dissonant and distorted. Their older work certainly contains some mastery. This track is another experimental attempt at trying to create the sounds that meld together into a seizing rhythm of house beats.

Y – Future House

Y is OUT NOW!!!

That is apparently optimal wording for a new track release. You can download the track below, let me know if you have any difficulties.

I used a combination of my favorite drums samples from some Splice packs that I have been collecting for over a year now. The kick is from the Deadmau5 pack, it has some of my favorite drums sounds. The hats in this track are very uniquely arranged, I feel like they add a tremendous amount of momentum.

The Bass is heavily modulated and I’ve create three different layers for it. It should really shine on larger systems.

The Lead is yet another JUNO synth sound, which is still my favorite. I’ve added like 5 different FX channels to it that are all mixed into the drums to give some awesome melodic and pad pumping effects.

The composition came together rather quickly, I am sometimes really surprised at how it just seems to happen on some days when I devote myself to it.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the track, I will hopefully have time to make a music video for it in the next week or so.

HAZE – the E.T.

HAZE - the E.T. (offish_back)

HAZE an EDM album by the E.T.

Haze is the next level of evolution for the E.T., with 9 brand new tracks and a ton of new inspiration. This is the E.T.‘s fourth independent album and the quality continues to skyrocket. I worked extremely hard on all of these tracks and appreciate any and all of the support that I get.

So without further adieu, enjoy the adventure:

HAZE – the E.T.

TRACK 1 – HYPER DRIVE

Hyper Drive was one of my favorite tracks ever to produce, I’ve literally spent the last 4 months writing in all of the melodies. I take a lot of influence from Skrillex, Porter Robinson, Odesza, Daft Punk, and Wolfgang Gartner in writing this track and used a lot of sounds that are pretty similar to them.

The intro is a fantastic voyage through the different textures of the track, mostly using the Juno synthesizer from Yamaha, which I am now using in most of my productions. It cascades into a radiant bass-scape with heavy engine shutters and grimey dubstep basses in combination with some really beautiful melodies.

The ending has a synthesizer solo that I created with Serum, its pretty grungy and awesome to listen to and sounds different, every time that I hear it. Enjoy the adventure through sonic space-time!

TRACK 2 – ACID URINE

Acid Urine is a Dubstep track that has actually been finished for a couple of months. I’ve been making final touches to it, so you can definitely consider this one of my more thought out tracks. It is pretty original, lots of weird sound designs in it, but overall it pumps and I think it gives a feeling of future dubstep, kind similar to G Jones. I have a track that I am producing right now that sounds pretty similar to him, so I can see that influence continuing to grow.

Enjoy the heavy bass-lines, it gets really dancy at the end. So glitchy, and yeah the first drop is heavy, turn it up.

TRACK 3 – ESCAPE ENDOR

Escape Endor is probably my favorite track that I have produced. The Arp in combination with the Bass synthesis is just so groovy and in combination with the vocals, its vibes create an almost irresistible booty shaking.

It reminds me of when Walker Boh escaped the Martixy thing in the book Terry Brooks wrote about the Elfstones. Like Neo in the last scene before he becomes a demi-god or whatever.

It’s a little cray, but turn up the bass cause the mix is solid.

TRACK 4 – FORCE

Force is a Bass-House track that kinda came outta nowhere in the last week of writing the album. The melodies and bass are simple, but powerful and fun. Turn up the mix on this one, it will definitely get you dancing.

TRACK 5 – BROKE

Broke is a pretty special track for me in how it represents my continued advancement into the genre of Glitch-Hop. The soundscape is insane and the sub is almost overpowering in the mix, but the sounds of dubstep interlace some glitchy and beautiful melodies.

Broke contains some of my most unique sound designs and many of the sounds will be used in the future to fit into my future trap/bass/glitch-hop tracks.

TRACK 6 – LUCID

Lucid is a Future Dubstep & Trap Adventure that was very much inspired by the music of REZZ, which I find to be hypnotic and a bit simple, but very compelling. This track hits hard and has some really cool bass sounds so make sure you listen with at least a little bit of subwoofer.

TRACK 7 – DISCOVERY

Discovery has my favorite melodies of the entire album. To me, this track is all about inspiration and finding after the search, it really was quite a surprise to come up with some of the excellent sounds that create this dreamscape. Very inspired with my sound design in the Yamaha Juno series, expect some exciting melodies in combination with some filthy bass.

TRACK 8 – HIVE BUZZ

Hive Buzz is a French House track, meaning that I took an old disco sample, then turned it into a house beat. The bass here is undeniably booty-shaking and the melodies are a beautiful contract to create a disco-like future-house atmosphere. Tell your friends!

TRACK 9 – JUNO

Juno is the final track of Haze and contains some of my most ambitious sounds from the album, many of which were created in the Juno synth and from using emulations. It really is an incredibly good sounding synthesizer that represents the 80’s so expect some retro sounds in this track, though the mix is extremely modern. I love the vocal manipulations and how they turn into a kind of atmospheric melody for the track.

HAZE was probably about 500-600 hours worth of total work. I really have worked my ass off for the last 6 months to bring you guys these tracks, so if you enjoy them, please help me to share them. I am also creating a little commentary track on writing the album that I will include with the FREE DOWNLOAD BELOW.

The Future After HAZE

Now off to the future of the E.T. I am pretty sure that I am going to enter into CloZee’s remix contest, her latest mix with Pretty Lights was spectacular and I absolutely love her sound. It seems to be the perfect next step.

I also have a couple tracks that are in progress, of course 😉 One is called ‘Blow It’ and sounds a lot like G Jones, and I am working towards that level of Glitchy-Future-Trap and Bass tracks. Look forward to the future 🙂

The album will be out on Streaming Services within a week.

 

 

Bleep Bloops Bass Sounds will leave you wondering what planet you’re on.

Bleep Bloop’s Music Rages Ahead of Modern EDM

Bleep Bloop or Aaron Triggs is a future legendary Trap producer. He continues to make a name for himself in the bass scene, making future trap and heavy dubstep with G Jones, Proko, NastyNasty and Yheti.

Bleep Bloop uses some interesting and mysterious gear, though its well rumored that he uses a moog sub phatty for a lot of his tracks. Fat licks and heavily distorted industrial inspired basses lace his thick trap beats. His style is pretty similar to G Jones, and they have a good amount of tracks together. Proko and Bleep Bloop made one of my favorite tracks together, Disc Error, definitely listen on soundcloud.

Expect Big Things

Bleep Bloop is leading the way in a style of music that is new to the scene. His dubstep is starting to pick up some massive traction. This year he’ll be supporting Rezz on tour. The quality of his music will only continue to improve with time if he continues to do what he is doing. That makes me pretty excited for the future of EDM.

The West Coast Bass Scene has a lot to look forward to….

Combined with Eprom, G Jones, Proko, Yheti, etc the bass scene in the west has a lot to look forward to. Bleep creates some wonky analogue style sound designs and layers on some thick bass. Then he maxes out distortion and smashes the side chain for some face melting beats. Bleep Bloop brings it when he plays so if you ever get a chance, make sure you’re ready for this kid to blow your mind.

G Jones continues to excite with his unique style of Future Trap/Dubstep

G Jones

G Jones – Experimental Bass at its Finest

G Jones is a pioneer of the electronic music scene and has been pushing the boundaries of live performance DJing in the underground for several years. He has played under a few different aliases including Grizzly J, . Greg Jones is the creator’s real name. But G Jones is what the bass music fans are  shrieking alongside Bass Nectar, Bleep Bloop, Yheti, the Widdler, Bleep Bloop, Zeds Dead, Nasty Nasty, and Pretty Lights.

Jones has created with several artists and is definitely a rising star of the bass music scene. His latest album “Visions” is one of the most unique albums ever. It blasts distinctly unique bass sounds designed for louder systems. Check out the album below, stream it on youtube or BUY THE ALBUM (def worth it.)

G Jones’ soundcloud is chalked full of hits so make sure you check out his unique style of dubstep and future trap. Not really sure which it is. Don’t really care.

His latest release of Eprom’s Pineapple is completely ridiculous and true to the style of Visions, which is fairly evolved from his ‘EYES EP‘ four years ago. Also check out his collaborations with Bleep Bloop, including the 4 track ‘MIND EP‘. Also check out Bleep Bloop’s entire discography to melt your brain a bit, the dude has some seriously talented ears for dropping massive and unpredictably delectable dubstep beats into your lap.

Top G Jones Tracks

listen to some of my favorite G Jones tracks below:

G Jones Visual Style

G Jones, like many of the experimental bass artists on the West Coast Underground (see my list of top artists here) is still developing his visual style, however, the momentum that he has going right now is pretty incredible. He has started to team up with Bass Nectar, so expect this artist’s visuals to start pushing EDM further.

The west coast bass scene is continually undergoing major changes. The industry continues to move at a faster and more tremendously unpredictable pace. We get to see how Greg develops the brand of G Jones. And how he continues to reach the underground as he becomes more and more popular.

The Future of Trap and Bass Music

Huge sets in 2018 as well are new releases are a must. Expect this artist to shine in the years to come. Huge releases from Yheti, Bleep Bloop, and Proko lead one to get really excited for the potential of the entire bass music scene. 2018 will be huge for the bass music scene in California as it continues to mature. Find some more info below.
