Mastering (Overview) September 16, 2013


The process of mastering is one that you will hear musicians rave on about, and anyone else has a rather blank expression when you mention it. This therefore is a brief summary of what it is, and why its done. Hopefully I will get round to writing some articles on how to do it later. Read More…


Your Final Decision April 27, 2013


Firstly, I made this in about a week, you can tell because it just doesn’t sound very polished (at least to me). Secondly, I had waaaayyyy to much fun making this, the main instrument was surprisingly simple to make and the main tune came about as quickly, and then I spent all the time whilst Read More…


Sunday Blues April 27, 2013


So, as the name suggests, this was started after feeling a bit rubbish on a Sunday afternoon with the prospect of work in the morning, I get it really bad but I also find I can have minor brain waves from it, this is a fine example… I actually started off making the most nasty/ Read More…


Turo (DJ^2 Remix) April 27, 2013


This started off when boredom got the better of me; I went onto remixcomps.com and choose the first one that I saw, without reading what they wanted or the prize. Not a great plan to anyone looking to get into a remix competition, knowing what the artist wants helps hugely (as I later found out Read More…


Are We Alone (feat. Delano Johnson) November 2, 2012


This song has been aaaggggeeeessss in coming together from when I first thought of the idea, or at least when I first made the main instrument (as ever, instrument came first). I made the instrument on its own when I was frustrated at 533557 and just needed something else to get my mind away from Read More…


BeaUtiful Power August 23, 2012


This is by far my favourite production, the more time I spend producing the more I enjoy what I produce… The main instrument in this came from another song called ‘Are we Alone’, that is still on the drawing board so much so that I still can’t get it finnished. Through a combination of writers Read More…


Now Your Just Somebody I Used To Know (DJ^2 Remix) July 1, 2012


So the second remix I have done, a lot more serious than my James Bond one that being said! I have had the acapella for this song around and about and I really liked the original vocal line, the original instrumental though isn’t much in terms of dance music (it hardly even has a steady Read More…

Pepper vs. Like a G6 (DJ^Mashup) April 23, 2012


This like my other mashups is to address the problem of not being able to play quality trance tracks because of people just not being able to engage with them through lack of words and knowing the track. Pepper by Store n’ Forward is an amzing track, one of the best drop I have come Read More…


Moves Like Jagger vs. Unison (DJ^Mashup) April 23, 2012


This is my favourite and everyone elses favourite mashup, wierdly the first one I did as well… This came into being from listening to Unison by Porter Robinson and thinking ‘wouldn’t it be great to be able to play that’, the problem being that for music like this it is very difficult for it to Read More…
