Exeisms is the collaboration of Ignatius (The 2 EPs LP) and Müd (Yavonemu). "Problem Locket" is the product of several months of massive data swapping/file sharing and continuous remixing. The yield is a group of lush, twisted, detailed, beat driven compositions that make a perfect marriage of ideas from the artists involved. I'll spare you anymore marketing speak and just refer to the link above where you can preview tracks in full and purchase, should you desire, for only $1 the entire 6 tracks. We hope you'll dig it. And we expect more from this collaboration. though, the next project will likely find them in the same room for the production process.
this was a totally new experience for me as i'd never worked this way before or collaborated in such a comprehensive way. It was liberating, fun, challenging and i'm pretty happy with the tracks and the experience in general and i recommend collaborating to anyone who is thinking about doing it. It's pretty freeing to have someone else shoulder some of the work load and contribute with ideas. It was nice to surrender part of the process... and anyone who's having issues with finishing tracks.. this is a good way to progress forward. find someone you get along with and are kind of in the same musical head space with and work on some tracks.
I like this, the rhythmic elements are tasteful and each track is well balanced.
I wish I could find someone to collab with that was as into dance / em as me. I collab'd with a few vocalists but none of them had any experience with composing on the computer (I'll just call this the modern em process), sure fine they can play guitar or maby even a few lines on piano but in the end I'm always the one to build the entire song (99% of the time it feels like). I feel even worse when I make tracks that have a lot of potential but my vocalist don't feel inspired or I end up writing the lyrics and melodies anyway.
i find collaborating to be usually loads more productive than working by myself - well its defo quicker to get stuff done
its usually tommy walker 3 that i work with and we tend to treat it like a game- taking turns to add sounds - sometimes we'll impose restrictions to the type of sounds to be used. the main thing is that no ones in charge - we can both take the track in whatever direction we want and see what we come out with. generally we try to get shit done as quick as possible - like a couple of hours for a simple track - do loads of tracks and develop the best ones further
yeah.. we're talking about setting up some rules for the next thing we do together. some kind of veto power and working together in the same room and all that. should be fun... and it can be very productive.. all things considered these tracks came together in a reasonable amount of time.
thanks for commenting.. hope you guys dig it.
here's a review from igloo mag
I really enjoyed this thank you, it really has ingredient to it that clears the mind and is relaxing.
Thanks to being on the Buried in Time email list, I've already listened to this release. And yes, it's awesome. I'm going to listen to it again right now!
Actually, every one of the Buried in Time releases from this year have been fucking ace. I'm totally obsessed with the Proqxis album.
ps - proqxis record is in high rotation on my ipod too.
glad you guys are into the album. it was a lot of fun to make.. and a good learning experience.
hopefully we can get another one together by the end of the year.
