To celebrate releasing an album Neon Live a Synthwave/Electro Funk album, I thought I’d do a special blog post on why I personally love the 80s and hopefully highlight some of …

10 Tracks That Have Personal Meaning Behind It

Following on to the other two 10 tracks I thought I’ll do another one but this time 10 tracks that have meaning to me. The songs listed are tracks I’ve heard …

NEON LIVE

Neon Live is a 12 track Synthwave album with a bit of Electro Funk in there too. It started out as a Electro Funk album but I found it hard to find sounds that fit the bill so I turned it into a synthwave album instead which was a more easier job to do rather then go through 100s of presets and still find it just wasn’t what I was looking for but I do hope to try again some time soon. The album is kind of reminiscent of 80’s House music, Electro Funk and late 70s to early 80s hip hop with drum kits like the 808 and 606 both drum kits used in those genres when it was first trending. Even though I did try to make it old skool with the drums and synths it still has a few modern like Synthwave tracks in there too but I tried to keep it mostly old skool flavas. It is called Neon Live as neon cos it’s 80s baby and live comes from live wires and also live performance the clean sort obviously lol.

LUCKY STAR

Lucky Star is a 12 track House remix album of my Jungle/Drum & Bass, Chiptune, Vaporwave and of course House tracks I’ve released except for one track which I haven’t released the original version but did the remix which I did for sensitivity reasons. As always expect club like tracks filled with humour and characters from famous films and TV series which you can find out more in Track Facts in the main menu after the 21st of May. The album title Lucky Star is from my Favorite Madonna track this and Justify My Love I have a few actually yeah and what lol, but it’s from that song and is where I got the inspiration for the album title.

MAD CONVERSATIONS

Mad Conversations is a 12 track UK Funky House album that is a little different to what I do but technically it’s still on the grounds of house but more UK Garage. I decided to do a UK Funky House album for a couple of reasons. One cos it’s one of the genres I always wanted to make and secondly I got inspired after hearing some on radio and a Crazy Cousin’s mix on Youtube which I actually put my back out to whilst dancing to it now I am telling my age lol. I haven’t heard any UK Funky House tracks for ages and this is just a trip down memory lane and I hope you like it. Oh one more thing it’s called Mad Conversations as I’ve had a fair share of them and actually vibe off them interesting and the silly. I like to get into deep conversations and also I’m a nutter so I have mad conversations with myself so that is that too.

ELEMENTS

Elements is a 12 track 90s to current hip hop album with elements of trap in there too hence the title of the album Elements. It was inspired after listening to some trap and R’n’B songs from the last decade and thought one that was a good decade for both hip hop and R’n’B with all the main songs and remix’s it felt like the 90s again. But I also thought I want to make some instrumentals of my own and made this album for you all to enjoy. I thought I do half and half of 90s hip hop to some trap tracks to also some R’n’B like beats too so it is a mix of all three.

SOCIAL DISTANCE

A special album I made due to recent events something I whipped up in under a week gotta get it while it’s hot lol!?. If you didn’t guess by the title of the album it is all about the Corona Virus that is turning out to be a headache. I thought this would be a perfect time for a virus album and of course, there are some dark tracks but also some upbeat tracks too as I didn’t want it all doom and gloom. I went out a few times and it was quite eerie, hardly anybody on the streets, shelves bare, waiting outside shops to be allowed in, protection screens all in the album. I hope everyone is staying safe and at home except for the unfortunate ones who have to work my heart goes out to you and good luck out there to you all.

IT’S PERSONAL

Is Personal is a 12 track vocal house album I wrote and appeared on. I was in a writing mood and decided I haven’t done a vocal album for a while and to do one. I think I have improved on the quality of the sound of the vocals though I did notice some of the tracks were still a bit loud but next time I’ll try a bit better to improve on that. The album has various subjects from dancing, Corona, my dog Patch and other topics and I must admit it was hard to find subjects to write about it but there is loads of inspiration out there. It’s called It’s Personal as I did everything myself and some subjects were personal and I felt this is a more personal album than the others though I’ve had a few personal ones in the past.

RITMO RAIZES

I’m back after a three month break and I’m back with something a little different a Latin world album which has all sorts of Latino music in from Reggaeton to House. I love Latin music from all the sub-genres that are on offer and I especially love Reggaeton so I put a lot of that kind of beats in there too I call them donkey beats lol. Though I feel it’s not 100 percent Latin music all the instruments and loops I found are from the Latin genre so I hope it comes across a little bit Latin please leave reviews in postbox thanks. Whilst making this album I thought of a little challenge I could set myself for this year learn Portuguese which is what the titles are in for a little bit of authenticness, I googled the translations for my titles for those who are interested and even got the pronunciations of some of them but I forgot them now. Ritmo raizes translated in English is “Rhythm Roots” and is called that because I’m going back to my grandparent’s roots which are in Guyana and it has a lot of rhythms in with some powerful basses too.

NEW RELEASE

House Call is a 12 track house album that has different kinds of house from the deep to the club bangers okay it ain’t got it all as that would make the album longer but it has all sorts of sub-genres of the house genre and started off as 80s house album but I couldn’t get the right tools for the album so I decided to make it a mix album instead.

NEW EBOOK RELEASE

This Ebook is about my first-time experience with psychedelics and what happened the night I took them and what I think about them now. This is just my opinion and whatever is said in the book is from my own personal experiences and shouldn’t be tried by yourself or any others. Not to mention they are illegal in most places in the world so if you are going to do them, please check your laws and repercussions before you do take them. It was written about a year ago now and actually started on a word document then a blog post then I decided to make an ebook instead as I thought that was the best way to do it in the end. I thought I’d share my own experience with psychedelics and note down my first trip and I thought it would be an interesting thing to jot down. There are many rumours and speculation about the drug and I wanted to go on my own discovery so I did and what I wrote is what happened.

NEW RELEASE

Snow Queens And Winter Dreams is a 12 track vaporwave Christmas album I made quite a bit back now geez time has gone fast. It is a collection of Christmas/winter songs for this year’s Christmas and doesn’t tell any story just music on this one with Christmas sounds and titles to match. I went through all the presets to find the best wintery sounds for the album and had the name for the album before I did the album but I knew I wanted it wintery and Christmas which I think I kept it as. The genre is in Vaporwave but has hip hop influences.in there too. and are all chilled vibes you can chill to while we wait for Christmas to arrive maybe wrap up some presents.

NEW RELEASES

Lockdown is a 12 track house album I’ve made and is made up of remixes from other songs and some original songs in there too. It has some vocal tracks but most of it is instrumental beats as I found it hard to find the right vocals for my tracks. I thought I’d just make a random album instead of making a concept album as it was that kind of album, I felt. I appear on two of the tracks on this album Hey 2 The People and Time Flow as I wanted to write something without being too consumed with the process of writing a full album. The album is called Lockdown for two reasons it represents the old me who was locked down and isolated myself from everyone and the other reason I’m taking control of my life and going lock it down to reach my goals so that’s the two reasons.

NEW RELEASES

Incidental Trips is a 12 track acid house album that was brought on by a suggestion by a friend that I should do an acid house album so here it is. I rented the legendary Roland TB 303 for all the acid leads and I enjoyed putting it together as always. The album title Incidental Trips is named cos for two reasons. One it’s named after a Notorious B.I.G. line off Nobody where he says “Incidents like this I take trips Lay up in Miami with Tamika and Tammy” now not sure if he is tripping whilst taking a trip out of town but it came to mind so that’s the first reason. The second reason is now I’m not sure if anyone has seen the pattern but there are the last three letters of acid in incidental so I named it after that too. There aren’t any thoughts in this album just random titles and music except for one Tusks which was about the poaching of elephant tusks in Africa and as we know has been quietly made legal the by Trump administration. I have a great passion for acid house and more like the 80s collection myself but this album is house tracks with acid leads in with some retro tracks in there too. I enjoyed making it so much I made it in under a week and plus I needed to finish the album by the end of this month so I was keen to get it done. If you have any suggestions like genre styles, titles or even concepts feel free to contact me with your suggestions I have a thirst for it now lol.

Found In Time is a 12 track Vaporwave/Progressive Rock/Hauntology album that is based around this year’s theme for World Mental Health Day which is suicide prevention. It follows a man’s struggle with life and eventually a breakdown which leads to a suicide attempt but he gets saved in time by a stranger and ends up having a happy ending but not before the up and downs of life first. Bits and pieces are based on true stories and a bit of my own in there too. It’s the second album I have done for this year mental health day and this was the first and only one before I decided to make Clear The Air which is all my story of mental health.

Maze’s Mixtape’s; Clear TheAir is a 15 track mixtape which was originally an album but I made it into a mixtape by putting some of my older tracks I did over the years with some vocals I wrote myself on top. It wasn’t going to be a personal mixtape but I had a lot of stuff to get off my chest so I wrote it from the heart no fake BS. Plus it’s Mental Health Month in America so I thought I write a song which turned into a whole mixtape. It covers issues from mental health, love for music and also the hate for music and other topics like haters and loneliness, I must admit it’s not my most chirpiest of albums but it was from the heart like I said. It’s called maze’s mixtapes as have you ever been in a maze? and this episode as I plan on doing more is called Clear The Air as if you haven’t guessed already I’m clearing the stuff off my chest.

NEW RELEASES

Afro Cosmic Generation is a 12 track Afrofuturism album I put together for Black History Month which is this month (October.) For those who don’t know what Afrofuturism is just think the legendary movie, Black Panther or if you’re a bit of a geek you would know it came from a comic first. Afrofuturism incorporates black history and culture and also technology along with sci-fi and also can be found in music with the futuristic looks like Missy Elliot has done many of times with her dopest videos. This album was a hard one to make and I had to rely on bongo drums in the tracks to make it into more of an afro sound and used old synths (the V Collection) for the sci-fi sounds. The album titles incorporate history, phrases and even a TV show Roots and were the easiest bit for me I found it hard making the tracks into an Afro sound but I think I managed it. I’ve put the inspiration behind the album in the facts tracks section and is a short video by YouTubers Say It Proud and is about the meaning behind Afrofuturism.

NEW RELEASES

Dark Impressions is a 13 track vaporwave/prog rock/hauntology album I made for this year’s Halloween. It is all around pictures I have taken throughout the years around where I live Bristol and is when I used to put photos on Flickr. They are all old places and have much history to it from an old railway track to an asylum all near to me. Some of the photos have stories behind them and I have put up a full detailed event of what happened in my blog section but I’ll leave a link at the end of this post. I also made an audiobook and a chapbook of 13 poems to go alongside the photos and tracks which you get a choice of one free with the album both on my website and on Bandcamp. The tracks are either dark or melodic or a bit of both and have got sound effects to put that stamp of what I was trying to convey which I hope I succeeded in doing.

NEW RELEASES

Into The Lion’s Den is a 12 track Drum & Bass/Jungle album that took what felt like an eternity to finish. It’s part instrumental, part vocal remixes of my house tracks I’ve done over the years and is part jungle part drum & bass with lots of breaks of course. I called it into the lion’s den as this year and more next year especially I’m throwing myself back into life again after being a hermit for nearly a decade and that was due to my dog who I sadly had to put down in June this year (2019.) This is a big step for me and I am working on the big finale which is a wedding abroad in Florida to be exact, that’s next year (2020) so I’m taking baby steps. It’s a free download but I am asking for small donations from you to keep making music and paying the music bills, thank you if you do make a contribution.

NEW RELEASES

In Fx’s is an Fxs and found sounds sample pack I put together using everyday items I found around the house and I bought, It can be used for most genres but works well with Vaporwwave. Each sample has been processed with Fxs like reverb, delay and distortion and also comes with the non-processed versions too so you can process your own sounds, they have also been eq and compressed so the sounds are ready to go.

Dystopia the sample pack is a Vaporwave/Prog Rock/Hauntology sample pack I put together, it is a dark and moody sample pack with melodic and hard edgy sounds in there. It’s my first sample pack I’ve made and I’m sure it won’t be the last one either as I rather enjoyed putting it together, don’t enjoy the upload problem though but that’s now sorted. There is a free album to go alongside this sample pack and can be found on my Bandcamp page. Fun fact about the album cover or though it’s not that fun the sheep mask represents people who want Brexit and the wall to happen and represents a dystopian, less fun more interesting I think lol.

Dystopia (The Album) is a 19 track demo album I put together from the sample pack I also made. The tracks are edgy but melodic and are ambient but danceable. I hope it has a dystopian feel to it and represents the current state of affairs in both America and Britain, it is a free download and be found here;

NEW RELEASES

Charlotte Urns is a 12 track Vaporwave album which was inspired by the Youtube channel Holy Koolaid which is all about exposing psychics for being fake. This album concentrates on the ways we are being lied to as people and the era of which we are living in, in a dishonest one I think full of lies and deceit. It’s mainly the main liers like tv, doctors, newspapers and so forth and is just a reminder to the stupid not to believe everything you hear on the news etc as factual and should be met with scepticism. I’ve like you might of have, have seen some proper propaganda from facebook and seen a lot of fake stuff and have seen quite enough for my lifetime lol.

LATEST MERCH

NEW RELEASES

Brexalon is a 12 track Vaporwave/Hauntology album that was inspired by the recent years of the Brexit war going on right now and for the last 4 or so years. It is set in a post-Brexit England where we have left Europe and tells the story in a dystopian world where the country is a hot mess and ready to be exploited by the rich and powerful. It was going to be a utopia and dystopia side to it but I’m against Brexit and couldn’t promote the good sides as there is too much wrong with it and any way that’s not a real cause in my opinion. The album is dark but melodic and is all made from V Collection 7 a synthesizer I’m loving at the moment and in my opinion one of the best around if you are looking for a synth for Vaporwave/Hauntology/ Prog Rock. I mostly got inspiration from various sites and forums where they looked at the impact of if we did leave Europe and was all based on the worst case scenario.
