EROS INTRODUCTION

Introducing EROS

EROS INTRODUCTION: The EROS album is definitely a step-up from my previous work. The mix quality as well as the writing is just on another level (thanks to a lot of hard work). I am attempting to write songs with a new degree of depth, EROS is a result of that search. Now for the EROS introduction, my latest work and music that I am very proud to present to you.

I have taken a lot of influence recently from old rock music, especially Pink Floyd, the Beetles, Led Zeppelin, and Jimmy Hendrix, specifically. The ideas of concept albums and how Pink Floyd used them to talk about ideas that are pervasive to the human experience. I’m in love with how Led Zeppelin plays to ideas and how all of the artists create stories with their music. Especially Hendrix.

So I have attempted to adapt my own methodology to create a concept for an album that I think can stand the test of time. EROS is an alien concentration camp of Mar’s moon that all of my tracks focus around. I am almost finished writing the tracks built around these concepts and there is a full storyline to accompany it. EROS tracks has been nearly 6 months in the making! So here’s the story.

EROS was originally going to be a trilogy

 

I decided to cut down the track count to about 7 or 8 and just take the best. I have also signed one of the tracks to a label. More on that later. Now to introduce EROS and the Universe that exists around the alien concentration camp.

EROS Introduction

Part 1: Introducing J the Alien

Introducing the main character of the Saga, J the Alien. J is an alien, in fact, he is the last being of his race, a once populous and prodigiously successful civilization until the collapse of their neutron star. Now a being must be born into a collapsing star in order to absorb the necessary energy into the incubation process. The energy requirements are so enormous that a birth causes the neutron stars to collapse within a millenia. The Novaborn live until they are killed.

Novaborn – the birth

Future Bass Hybrid

Novaborn is the story of J’s birth, the first part of the EROS introduction. He was birthed without any knowledge of his ancestry into the darkness of space. Upon waking for the first time post-incubation, J is guided via the Novaborn AI, Celexa to his new homeworld, Celexus. Celexa encountered a planet during the incubation process and already begun the terraforming process to make the atmosphere suitable for J to arrive and begin mining the crust. His first quest inundates J with knowledge about his species, their energy consumption, the energy costs of his own life, and the recognition that he is the only one of his kind. J’s life is a search for energy, to keep himself alive and to revive the Novaborn species.

J the Alien – Introducing the main character

Future Electro

J is a very unique character that I am very excited to share. I had an entire album built to explore J’s universe and existence. But I scrapped 5 tracks and combined the rest into the EROS saga. J has all kinds of incredible technology and unique attributes. Luckily, these attributes  make for harrowing and mind-melting adventures through the cosmos. I will release the next tracks ‘very soon;.

I will be releasing more music within the next three days, most notably Positron, which is at the basis for J’s technology and existence. Also check out this music video for Novaborn in the meantime:

New Music and more Focus on Yoga

Morgan Page - the E.T. remix

Morgan Page – Beautiful Disaster (the E.T. remix)

This past week has been great for my yoga practice and also my music writing, usually the two go together for me. Hence the above remix of Morgan Page – Beautiful Disaster. The vocals are fantastic, I really hope you like the mix!

I subscribe to a sample library that I have a certain amount of download credits to each month so that I can download professional sounds, mostly drums and specialty synthesizer sounds or vocals. They are royalty free, but I always manipulate them enough to make them unrecognizable anyways.

They have remix contests and this contest in particular had some excellent vocals to work with, which I was looking for in Splice anyways, so I decided to just go ahead and do a remix instead.

So my latest track was a fantastic mix-down experience because I got to work closely with vocal samples to making them fit into the overall house mix that I created to accompany it. The vocals make the track stand out against a lot of my other work, but the sound design is very similar and the leads are Juno emulations.

I took a lot of new sound design techniques that I have been working with and applied them to the stems that were provided. The track is pretty simple, but the drum-beat is very original and the bass is super dope, I seriously can’t wait to hear it on a louder system. Part of the reason I make music is that I like bass music and house so much; it gives me a good perspective on going after the future of the genres and market.

The percussion also keeps the track moving at all time, while an electro stab that I added creates a bit of contrasting melody against the chords of the track, just to spice it up and provide a bit of my own flavor. I think the best part of the track are the FX and the beat. On some louder speakers those drums will smash.

Anyways, I hope you like the track. I can’t offer you a download, but here are the streaming links:

Soundcloud – Stream and let me know what you think of it.

Splice Contest – Vote for me!

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.

 

 

Haze EP Releases 9/1/17

HAZE EP Cover

The Haze EP

Haze EP is a group of some of the most unique electronic music tracks that I have ever listened to. Sometimes, I can’t believe that I created a few of the tracks.

Each song is kind of a world of sounds because I do all of my own sound design. Then I take the highest quality analogue samples and mixing the hell of of the track. The sound is nothing short of galactic adventurous. My journey through music continues to evolve and these latest tracks take the quality to a new echelon.

Haze has some of my favorite music ever on it. I’ve always had a certain taste in electronic music and I am very excited to share how I like it with the world!

Diving into Sound Design

Of course, the kind of music that I enjoy is an ever evolving taste and honestly, I hope to be able to follow this path forever.

My handle on the technology involved continues to grow firmer and my sound design skills improve as I continue to experiment with my different synthesizers, Serum and Zebra2. Operator is and always has been my go to. My ability to create unique bass sounds grows more and more potent as I also hone my mixing, the two go together really nicely.

I have begun to split frequencies far more often to great effect. I feel highlighting certain frequencies in the bass spectrum becomes really important as I get more detail oriented with my bass music.

The Tracks

I finished composing nearly all of the tracks for the album and will release a few of them early. I might release one tonight, actually. This time, I am giving myself plenty of time to finish all the tracks.

So I will tell you my favorite tracks and why before I give you the Haze EP track list.

HyperDrive is my favorite song. I love it because it represents a beautiful style of electro house that has been a little bit forgotten. This multilayered Future-Bass influenced house track will leave you feeling like you just visited another world.

8R0K3 is also my favorite song. It has some of the most unique soundscapes I have ever made and drops like a champ. The bass is fucking wonky and super glitched out. The sound design is so unique, it’s very weird to listen to it in different environments. But so far, the tests have all come back positive!

Lucid and Digital Eternity are both Bass oriented tracks that I really want to play live. They have certain rhythms to them that are very unique, kinda remind me of REZZ. I am definitely hoping that this album helps me to get live at local festivals and stuff like that. Here’s to detachment from results.

HAZE EP

  1. HyperDrive – Electro-House
  2. Lucid – Future Trap
  3. Escape Endor – Tropical House
