Electronic Music promo: Drinks Plus
Written February 11 2011 , Tags: skweee, wonky, house, space, future
I've been sitting on this album for quite some time now waiting to get samples cleared but finally just said screw it and took them out.
Now you can listen to the first full album I've done in quite some time in glorious soundcloud fidelity. I will take the description from there and put it here:
This is the debut album from alias mirrorfacet. Timothy Doerr aka GKG
presents nine tracks representing the cybertnetic sherbert dream rainbow
that is modern electronic music. A retarded all you can eat golden
corral buffet of electro, skweee, trance, garage, house, wonky, garbage, and
minimal techno. "Basically this album was a series of intense challenges
I was required to complete to gain my release from a secret Mexican
prison" quotes the author. "Originally the tracks were going to be used
by an evil corporation to hypnotize large populations, but during my
escape I managed to steal the masters before I exploded everything".
Truly a misguided, directionless album, the tracks on Drinks Plus are
nevertheless shining pinnacles of greatness within their genre. Let's
take a minute to ask GKG about the concept for the album.
"Imagine you're in some post-terrestrial satellite habitat for wayward
humans. You're walking around a gravity ring through a huddle of make-
shift huts when an aging cyber-apothecary sticks her head through some steam that's
excaping from her tent and beckons you in. As you stare at her wispy
silver hair and cyborg half bone half computer-chip jewelry, she proffers
you a ladle of some multi-colored fluid. You drink and leave. Moments
later you are overcome by intense visual distortions, and as you lay
back in the astro-turf and stare through the habitat's transparent dome
at stars of a million different colors you lapse into this trip, Drinks
Anyways check it out if you feel so inclined. Also if anyone has any suggestions as how to put this out there/sell it to a label please help me.
that's really great tim! i'm glad you finally finished it!!! xoxoxoxp
woah-ho-ho! congratulations. You are really good!
ur amazing. . .listening now
i want me some cybersmokes!
no sex before marriage!
I know a guy who carries around a whole pack of e-cigarettes.
thanks for listening to IT. i hope it was GOOD.
If everyone who listens to this smokes at least one cybersmoke, and then makes each of his friends smoke 3 cybersmokes, and then each of their friends smoke 9 cybersmokes, each of theirs 27, etc. and then for every cybersmoke smoked my album gets 100 or so listens, i should be rich enough to buy both of you a new casio cz1000. or me a con brio ads 200.
basically i'm just talking nonsense.
thanks a whole bundle jack
This is a really nice release! You must be excited. Spread the word and I'm sure you'll get lots of positive feedback.
One thing I like about em411 is hearing how much better people are getting over time. This is the best work I've heard from you yet.
is it just the mastering then? most of the tracks on this release have been on this site at some point (some still are) two+ years ago. i must be getting worse!
really cool. enjoying every track. thanks for sharing it.
v v v good.
Cybersmokes is groovy.
but all the tracks ive heard are good.
This is super house-o-licious KG. I love the dirtiness of the sounds, and the general catchiness. Thanks for sharing.
The mastering is a problem for me though. Itâ€™s too compressed. The dynamics canâ€™t breath. The mixes, which I recall having a sense of depth before, sound 2D now.
you''re definitely right about them being overcompressed. i think some of them went through the same mastering compressor like three times.
i think i was going through the same thing as everyone else in the "loudness war" at the time, louder is the new loud and all that...
i'm surprised to hear somebody say anything about catchiness. I didn't think I'd ever hear anybody use that term to describe any of my music. so thanks for that and your other kind words.
And thank you repicalex and monty too. Originally I thought cybersmokes was one of the weakest tracks on the release, maybe because of the really awkward into, but as more people talk about it i realize it's not that bad.
btw the stereo version of super cameron''s world is streaming now in case anyone wants to check it out
Sick tracks man. This was far and beyond what I thought it was going to be. Dead sexy.
