There's Something Wrong With You by DJShadowkat 19 days ago
mre:

Thanks for the comments. As you may or may not recall, my "stage name" of DJShadowkat came from my cat, Shadow. I was trying to think of a name to go by when Shadow jumped into my lap and the proverbial light bulb went off and DJShadowkat was born.

I love cats, I have another named Peaches and she's a hoot. I love dogs too, but I have always had cats. In fact, I like lots of critters and have had a couple of Cockatiels, which are very zany critters and parakeets and at one time I had 12 aquariums.

All that bubbling had a nice effect when getting ready to sleep...

There's Something Wrong With You by DJShadowkat 20 days ago
GaryLester:

Please allow me to explain.

There's a lot I don't understand either! I was just playing around with some new synth sounds and this tune just kinda happened!

I noticed you removed the comment you made about the cover image so I thought I would explain it. The cat just had this look on it's face that reflected the name of the song and the fact that the cat's foot was up in the air added to the silliness of the song itself, so I used it.

Thanks for listening and thanks for adding it to your favorites!

KennethLavsen:

Thank you, thank you and thank you!

Eagle:

I'm glad it grabbed you! It was fun putting it together and it's pretty rare that one of my songs is not 14 minutes long! LOL

Thanks for adding the tune to your faves!

I really, really, really love this tune!!

The mix is excellent and the recording stands out as quality work.

I love this style of music, but I suck at it so it's nice to hear people who know how to do this do it right.

Greatly enjoyed!

Very nice recording and a wonderful performance as well!!

BTW: You can convert videos into the .mov format in iTunes as or Quicktime as well. I also use Flip4Mac's converter for creating .wmv files for Windows users and it works quite well.

I love the live band here, you have more guts than I do. I'm too shy and ugly to get onstage and play.

Hold On by geoff_wales 3 months ago
Nicely done!

The recording is flawless and the arrangement it quite nice as well. This kind of reminds me of a tune from the band "Afternoons In Stereo" that I discovered on SomaFM radio a while back.

Very laid back and kind of a late 70's feel to it, somewhere reminiscent of bands like Bread, America and others.

Always Time by geoff_wales 3 months ago
Beautifully performed and recorded!

I agree with you that some other percussion and latin style beats would be nice, but I really enjoyed this as it is but would not be sad to hear you "spice" it up, either.

Excellent!

bmann,

I thank you for the Eno reference, Brian Eno is one of my favorite artist/producers.

I am not familiar with the "Finding Forrester" soundtrack, I will look that one up.

The Rheostatics "Whale Music" and "Music Inspired by the Group of Seven" albums is something I've heard of but not listened to. I will look that one up as well!

Your support is greatly welcomed.

Thanks again, bmann.

It's always nice to hear from other discerning music listeners like myself.

I've enjoyed working with Pharmakeus, his style and my style seem to mesh quite nicely at times. I am particularly fond of "The Shadow Machine (Broken Head Mix)... his work inspired the 'Floydian' mix I gave it in the final production.

This song just fell into place as I was waiting for the plumbers to finish repairing the mess in my kitchen when the pipe blew up that feeds my hot water heater (my cats were tripping on all the water).

I did a blues radio show on KAAY 1090 back in the late 70's when the guy who did the show got his *** shot and was in the hospital for several months. I learned a lot about the blues then and learned to love it!

Added this to my iPod.

Complacent Minerals (test mix) by DJShadowkat 9 months ago
MRE-

Thanks for the ratings and the comments. Per your inquiry about the sfx that was a sound that came with one of the NI Soft Synths and it was already mixed that way. I liked it so I used it. Hope it didn't give you a headache!!

Chromatic-

Welcome to the strange world of DJ Shadowkat! Thanks for the kind words and great ratings. I still miss my friend, but my music is being mixed with his audio gear I was given and I'm sure he approves. My wife LadyKat and I miss his presence in our lives every single day. He was a wonderful human being.

I'm glad you enjoyed the song, I will be posting the final mix by the end of the month. Stay tuned.

Complacent Minerals (test mix) by DJShadowkat 9 months ago
Pharmakeus,

Thanks, and I will take the suggestions you sent me into consideration as I work on the final mix. A few minutes ago I came up a guitar track I created a few years ago and saved it in midi. I'm going to use it in this song.

As usual, your comments and suggestions are always welcome!

RazbaqueDirge,

I still can't get over your name. I just love it.

Thanks for the comments, I love the reference to the "w". Interestingly enough I am using a new mixing tool that adds dimension into stereo mixes and you can even control the panning and placement better than anything else I have used. It's taking some getting used to.

I like your suggestions, I will attempt to use them as best as I can. Good ideas, thanks!

Peace, Always!!

Kenneth,

Thank you for the nice comments and ratings. I do have a tendency to mix styles, mostly because as a DJ I've been exposed to so many different ones. Makes life interesting!

Alanatomic,

Love the name! As I said in the song information section this is a "almost pretty good test mix". Once I do the final mix, the top heaviness will go away. It's a work in progress. I do thank you for your comments, though!

It's pretty long winded as usual. Sorry about that, I just get into a jam and can't seem to stop.

Please stick with it, it's a toe tapper.

It is 2 months of painful slow work. I wanted an exact sound.

This is close.
Complacent Minerals (test mix) by DJShadowkat 9 months ago
Used both loops and synths.

Mostly MIDI loops so I could learn to play the loop and also modify it if I wanted. I did a lot of that actually!

Used Massive synth and Absynth as well.

It's always difficult losing a friend or family member, or even a pet for that matter. Unfortunately it's part of life. I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

I am currently working on a new version of this song and also working on a new one. Been busy with work so have not had much time to do anything the last 3 weeks, but keep an eye out...

Axelbreeze,

Thanks!! I'm glad you like it. I've always been pretty shy about singing, even if I'm being silly like in this song.

I have often thought it would be fun to tag along with them on a hunt.

Glad you liked it.

The little noises and effects are called "garbage" by the band Garbage and I like that term, so I'll use it too. They do the same thing on almost all their albums!!

mre:

You are correct! I had a blast doing this tune and made use of my newest mastering app that I have decided I will use form now on. I love the clarity it gave the mix.

I've been recording since I was about 10 years old, and after years of being in radio & TV production and working in studios and doing live music I've gotten pretty picky about how my stuff sounds, even though there are some I have not quite gotten right (yet).

Last Time I Saw You by DJShadowkat 1 year ago
Tribrix,

Thanks for the glowing review! I tried hard to keep this down to a minimalist sound as I have the tendency to get long winded and add tons of stuff.

I loved the guitar sound as well. I used NI's wonderful Guitar Rig for that. I bought the Komplete 8 package last summer and use everything in it a lot in my music.

I've been pondering remixing the song and re-cutting the vocals because I am still recovering from the MRSA infection in my throat. The antibiotics are working and I'm getting better every day, so I'm thinking I could do a better job on the vocals.

I agree with you that the drum track is the weakest. I just used what I had in the original tracks from a couple of years ago and built everything around that. I will consider trying to build different drum tracks if I do a new mix.

Thanks again!

Peace, Always!

Last Time I Saw You by DJShadowkat 1 year ago
FYI:

The last 4 months have been hell.

My best friend died suddenly at the age of 49 of a massive heart attack, and then I came down with an MRSA infection similar to strep throat and almost lost my voice.

I went into a deep depression when my friend died, he had been at my home on Christmas Eve and then he was dead 2 days later. I'm going to miss his presence in my life forever.

Other than that, I'm okay.

smiley

The cool thing is I signed a new contract with my current job and I love what I do. I've been very busy and having a great time. Everyone I work with are wonderful people and very funny and interesting people and I have a great time and learn something new every day.

What more can a man ask for?

I have my wonderful wife, LadyKat, I have my 2 cats, Shadow and Peaches and a crazy cockatiel named Cosmo who always wants to sing on my songs. Sometimes you can hear her!

I love you folks on iComp. I'm sorry I was gone for so long. It's all of you that keep me going.

Peace to all of you!

Love ya

I don't know if anyone gets the one reference I make to "balls on the fence" and "ridiculousness "

Ridiculousness is my favorite new show on MTV (yes, MTV) starring Rob Dyrdek, Steelo Brim and Chanel West Coast where they play very funny videos of mostly skaters, boarders and just plain crazy people doing very stupid things. The show has become a huge hit on MTV and I wish them the best.

You will see many idiots wrack their balls on fences and more on the show. It's truly a LOL/ROTFL type program. I'm not a skater as I have no sense of balance at all. I fall UP stairs, for crying out loud. But it's fun watching people fail....

Drydek is a very funny guy and I have tons of respect for him after reading his WIKI bio and he's an excellent host.

Dyrdek is a guy who made millions from skateboarding and other extreme sports and a clothing line and even burritos and appears to be a really crazy but sincere guy. He's had 2 other shows on MTV that I am just now catching up with and I cannot stop laughing. He's got balls the size of King Kong. Seriously.

Chanel West Coast (Chelsea Chanel Dudley) is the daughter of a DJ so I kinda "get" her like a dad "gets" his daughter (hope that does not sound creepy or anything). She has this woody woodpecker laugh that just slays me.

She's also a rapper and dancer and a singer and she's not too bad at all that and she's damn cute, too. She did a rap song called "Eat My Cookie" and she's so naive she did not see the sexual overtones to the song. That cracks me up. Look her up on YewToob.

Steelo Brim is a DJ I think, and he's funny as hell. I love his contribution to the show, it would not be the same without him. I would like to see more of him.

I love this show. Check it out, it's on Thursday nights at 9pm CST on MTV.

They have famous people on the show regularly. The show is produced by the guy who did Jack-a-s-s.

Peace, Always!

Last Time I Saw You by DJShadowkat 1 year ago
Only loops used are the drum tracks, which are the original tracks from the song I recorded a while back.

The rest is new stuff via my M-Audio 88 key midi and various synths and EXS instruments. Used NI's Guitar Rig for the guitar and NI's Massive on the bass synth.

Vocals are me, just havin' fun.... I laid 3 tracks of vocals doing harmonies, then mixed them to one and then duped them 3 times with different effects on each. That was fun!!

I think I'm channeling Elvis on acid again!

Peace, Always!
