I'm Alive...

I’m Alive…

It’s been long since my last upload and that’s because I was dead. But now that I’m alive I manage to create and share with you my latest production.

SmothAfro is a somewhat tribal house music that I’ve allowed myself to produce. There’s a lot of experimentation in this track that consequently gives it a unique vibe very different of any other production I’ve done in the past.

The animal sound taken from the hot lands of Africa mixed with the classic groove of house music, this is SmothAfro.

The right sample

And here we have a small production that slightly moves away of the path followed by latest music’s.

"the_right_sample" is a softer track that borrows inspiration from styles like Chillout and Jazz avoiding the more depressing sounds of deep house. The music is simple and short but nonetheless manages to create a sense of lightness that is often missing from my productions. I blame the feelings that are normally associated with summer.
I can almost imagine myself in a beach bar listening to this tune while drinking a cold beer and watching the sea.

A story that penetrates our soul

“voice_of_the_beast” it’s pure deep house music, an amazing genre that lately I’ve been viciously addicted. – Creatively speaking, of course.

There is something dark and cinematic in deep house that really touches me. It’s not an easy sound to describe because of the emotions that are subliminally attached to each creation.
This type of music has a very strong emotional effect. The relaxing vibe fills our minds with thoughts and dreams and the mystery that emanates each sound tells a story that penetrates our soul.

“voice_of_the_beast” uses a progressive technique that introduces each sound in a very harmonic way creating a wave that that grows into a force of feelings that open as the track progresses.

One of the most interesting pieces is the inclusion of a dark evangelic speech sample in one of the music breaks. This is homage to the 90’s underground music. Who doesn’t remember the amazing track “So Get Up” the 1993 track by the Portuguese house music production duo Underground Sound of Lisbon with words spoken by Ithaka, about "End of The World".

if you never heard this song, let me tell you that you are missing a very important piece of house music history.

Moving Souls

"Moving Soul" is a deep cinematic house music that has a similar vibe to my previous production "act_good", although using a less conventional beat and a slower tempo.

In this track I’ve decide to experiment with some new techniques in order to create a more original music.
The minimal unconventional beat uses some voice elements has percussion tools, this gives some originality and also helps in create its unique personality.
The rest of the samples like basslines, synth and effects were pasted with the intention of creating a wave of mix sounds that gradually grow and carry the music to the next level.

The intention was to create a deep, moody, cinematic track that could touch the listener at some different levels. I believe that this goal was achieved and "Moving Soul" is a deep original House music.

Hope you enjoy,

Repetition and admeasurement

“act_good”, is a deep, moody and cinematic house music that came to my mind as an act of rebellion in an attempt to free myself from the prejudices of house music.

This is a story of a man that every day walks in to the subway hoping that it takes him to a different place this time.
He is tired of walking in no direction, with the purpose of nothing, and the goal of continuing in repetition and admeasurement.
He reaches the end of the track and finds Himself lost in the standardization of life, performing the same moves over and over in a autism pattern that He cannot escape.

First Steps

First Steps is my latest production. For this music I used some very unique samples which helped create a nice retro vibe.

This is probably my first music that doesn’t use a Bass loop on its main structure, instead and in order to create the same effect I use a very subtle Rhode loop which can be heard to almost the entire track.

There’s also a very persistent Jazzy chill out vibe that is given by some flute sounds and loops, this was included to give a more summerish on the beach type of thing, giving this track a somewhat commercial Ibiza vibe.

In order to break the track monotony, I’ve used a small trick. During the song and on three separate occasions a specific sample is raised two octaves up. The twist, although short, really helps give this track a very unique and sophisticated groove.

First Steps is a good track, one of those that by some strange consequences are created in a very fast and harmonic way and without almost any effort. I’m really happy with the end result especially because First Steps was my first music which arrived after a long period of time without being able to create a track that artistically I could be proud of.

Hope You enjoy,
