Twintone – Velocity Life – re-release on Beyond Belief

You might wonder what is this new release on Beyond Belief – the whole album “Velocity Life” by Twintone. Well, it has a big history behind it. Basically Twintone has been with me musically since I got into drum & bass. He always used the right sounds that I really liked, especially around the liquid funk era of drum & bass. His sound was very original and very under-preciated.

At around 2003 Twintone was supposed to put out an album on Position Chrome (the label owned by Panacea). I am not sure what went wrong – it was probably that the sound of the album didn’t completely match the label vision. So what happened was that the whole album was free up for grabs for some time. That’s basically when I wrote a review for the album long time ago when I was still a member of the drum & bass group called Shadowbox.

To cut the long story short – I have been in contact with Twintone for the past few years – exchanging tracks and just doing occasional email conversations. I have always loved the “Velocity Life” album that captures one era of German drum & bass and I felt like it was a shame that it was nowhere to get.

That is why I offered Twintone to put it out on my label – Beyond Belief. We actually decided to add there several bonus tracks that came from roughly the same era when Velocity Life was made.

I am super happy to present this release to you. It might not sound special to everyone – as it does not match what’s happening in drum & bass right now but it is special for me and that’s why you can listen to it anywhere right now.

Free Range – new mini album!

After Hexage’s soundtrack for Redcon I finally had some more time for my own music.

The result is a mini album called “Free Range” that contains 5 tracks – all targeting different genres of electronic music.

Let me introduce the tracks to you one by one:

1) Free Range – dubsteppy electronica with guitar parts that were recorded by my South Korean friend Jo Joonghyun. I was browsing through some of my old Reason sketches and found the beat percussions – I thought that they were sounding cool so I took them. Then I heard another older sketch and liked the bassline – took that one out as well. Suddenly I had a deeper vibe going. The rest was just plain amazing. Especially Jo always surprises me with his guitar ideas. So grateful that I met this guy.

2) Falcon – this is an opposite of “Free Range”, I composed this from a scratch a few weeks back. I really enjoy listening to those evolving filtered beats and pads. Also pitched down vocals and shuffling hit patterns do the trick for me. Pure Deep House track.

3) Buzzard – another result of me browsing through my old sketches. I found a drum and bass part that I really liked however it was just sounding too fast and too crazy. I took down the tempo to a breaks level and suddenly I was feeling it. It’s got kind of a sci-fi atmosphere that I enjoy.

4) Swoop – I actually don’t know why it took us ages with Munk (a drum and bass producer from Hungary) to finish it. I have always liked this song that we composed around year 2007. It just never got to go out. So I sat at it and contacted Munk. I just basically cleaned the sound, made new mixdown and edited a few parts that sounded a bit strange. I love the result, powerful song with a few light moments.

5) Seoul Memory – as the title says, it’s a reminisce of Seoul where I recorded the background sounds used in the song. Their subway makes such amazing futuristic sound (subway and olive n young being my most favorite places during my most recent visit :D). Amazing city, amazing country. Jo again backed me up with his guitar. Thanks Jo! you are my star!

Patty Pan Planet – Kompilace Skladeb na Beyond Belief

Jelikož jsem během posledních šesti let nasbíral pár skladeb, které buďto čekali na vydání (nedočkaly se), nevešly se na album nebo jsem nevěděl kam je zařadit, tak jsem se rozhodl udělat mini-album / kompilaci, na které je všechny vydám. Půjde o digitální vydání na mé značce “Beyond Belief”. Na všechny skladby jsem si znova sedl a upravil jsem jim zvuk dle mého nejlepšího svědomí. Myslím, že se se sešla dobrá parta skladeb a tak se těším na moment vydání, který jsem zatím naplánoval na prvního června. Některé skladby můžete znát z mých mixů, djských setů nebo z živého hraní.

Název této časově rozložené kompilace bude “Patty Pan Planet“. Objeví se na serverech bandcamp, juno, trackitdown, digital-tunes, itunes, amazon, atd..

Tracklist (s časovým údajem, kdy byla skladba složena):

  1. Airport Stunnovo (feat. Stunna) – 2006
  2. Instinct (feat. Smote) – 2006
  3. Anybody Out There – 2007
  4. Squash – 2007
  5. Our Time Is Gone (feat. Stunna) – 2008
  6. Blue Beliefs – 2009
  7. Your Ambition – 2009
  8. The Night We Kissed – 2010
  9. Nana – 2011

Mix pro pořad Take Control na Radiu Kiss

Djka “IM Cyber” mi nabídla udělat mix pro její pořad “Take Control” na radiu Kiss. To jsem s radostí provedl a jelikož asi ne moc konkrétních lidí na mix narazí, tak jsem ho pro každého nahrál sem. Mix je drum and bassový, složený jak z nových, tak starších tracků s některými mými favority jako je například track od “Intelligent Manners” nebo “Tyler Straub”. V mixu zazní i celý nadcházející release BBELIEF011. Pěkný poslech.

Beyond Beliefs Volume 1 – BBELIEF011 – BBELIEF012

Nakonec ani tento rok nenechám svůj label bez releasu, zatím plánuji dva, respektive tři. Prvního května bych rád do světa poslal soubor pěti singlů z Beyond Belief, tří minulých a dvou budoucích. Proč takhle? Protože bych rád zaplatil distribuci i pro iTunes a ostatní servery, přičemž na počtu skladeb nezáleží, proto spojím do jednoho balíku BBELIEF008 až BBELIEF012 a takto se objeví na několika serverech. Soubor ponese název “Beyond Beliefs Volume 1”. Současně vydám ještě BBELIEf011 a asi tak za dva měsíce nato BBELIEF012. Ale abych byl více konkrétní co se tedy pod těmito názvy objeví?:

“Beyond Beliefs Volume 1”:

  1. Popped Up Rice
  2. The Right Moment
  3. Late Dance
  4. Problem Solved
  5. Next Dimension feat. MC Repete
  6. Lost In The Paper World
  7. Just Fine feat. Jett
  8. Near Distance feat. Jett
  9. Sputnik
  10. Lekkur

“BBELIEF011” (prvního května):

  1. Just Fine feat. Jett
  2. Near Distance feat. Jett

“BBELIEF012” (prvního července):

  1. Sputnik
  2. Lekkur
