Electronic Harassment Audio

I captured audio of the electronic harassment equipment. You need bass speakers in order to hear the low modulation. These are audio reconnaissance field recordings. This forum does not get a lot of traffic but since I started a thread about it posting some audio seemed appropriate. https://soundclo...

Talking Techno Oddities on Freakier Zone

Talking Techno Oddities on Freakier Zone tonight at midnight

I really enjoyed this program with Graham Massey just because I'm from the Acid House/ Retro Techno era. Good tunes.

Re: The Story of a Sample That Keeps Coming Back

Think fast mates Aphex Twin unreleased tracks with the sample (forget which track). He's been putting tunes on Soundcloud.

Re: 808 State drum patterns – any online?

I did a version of "In Yer Face"

https://soundcloud.com/theonewhois/inyerface

Listening to the original on YouTube my version lacks a lot of elements like the stabs and bassline but I didn't spend a lot of time on it. :-? :wink:

Re: 808 State drum patterns – any online?

"In Yer Face" is a break beat track in the style of a live drummer. Focus on the kick, snare, open hi-hat, and cymbal pattern that goes throughout it should be close.

Reverbnation - Rap/ RnB/ Hip-Hop Manchester, UK

Reverbnation is a hot bed of b-rate talent and amateur artist. Some of the stuff is pretty funny. :) There is raw potential in other talent though. Dallas, Texas where I'm from has over 15 pages of rappers. Manchester only has two pages of rappers, most of the music on Reverbnation from Manchester i...

Re: Yellow Magic Orchestra

One problem with YMO's music is their English vocals sounded slurred. I think they were going for Genesis/ Peter Gabriel effect applying a little chorus to the vocals and trying to sound similar. I could be talking out of my arse but that's what it sounds like. The German accent in Kraftwerk's man m...

If you play 1000 Knives at 45 RPM - 8 it sounds like 808 State Album 90 type stuff. :)
