Braincells (Lack Thereof) by DJShadowkat 22 days ago
@ScottHorwath,

Many thanks for the comments! I have a couple of other tracks sitting on my hard drive that I'm considering posting as well. Sometimes I have to let my own stuff grow on me!!

However, I've been nowhere near my studio in days, lots going on.

Thank you again, and many thanks to everyone who has listened to my music.

Prayers accepted that my current situation will be resolved soon.

Braincells (Lack Thereof) by DJShadowkat 24 days ago
@BlancFroid,

There is quite a bit going on here, thanks for the comment!

I've been sitting on several tracks that I wasn't sure I would ever post, but felt this one was worth it after giving it a listen. The original title of the first part was Marsh Mellow, the underlying beats were an unfinished track with no name. I put them togther and added a few things and this is what happened.

Due to new and serious complications in my life, this will most likely be the last post of 2016.

Thanks for everyone's support this year!

Listen To Her Heart (Tom Petty Cover) by DJShadowkat 1 month ago
@Dyl,

Thanks for the comments. I worked hard to take this from a somewhat crappy midi track to something with some substance. You words mean I did my job and I appreciate it.

@BarracaDaBossa,

First let me say how much I love your artist name!

Many thanks for the comments, I was first a rock and roll deejay and musician until I fell in love with electronica and started blending the genres. This song is a kind of return to my roots, so to speak.

Tom always does a great job, Steve.. your track is most dope!

Interesting somehow that someone with the word Shadow in their name is the first to respond to a song with the same word in it.

It's All Come Down To This by DJShadowkat 1 month ago
@RTe,

Thanks!! I'm an old rock and roller, so it was kind of cool to be able to go back closer to my roots.

But as a keyboardist, the electronica genre captivated me many years ago and once I began writing music again after a 20 year lapse it was fun combining rock with elecro and I've been working on it since.

I'm very happy you liked the track.

Figuring out how to get the SparkLE to record was interesting, but after some tinkering and reading up I got it working. It's a cool little gadget. I am looking at getting a NI Maschine someday as well, I've been eyeing their new Komplete Kontroller keyboards too.

Glad you liked the track!

I'm really digging the SparkLE drum gadget and software!! There are 4 different beat tracks of just the Spark alone!

The singing voice is from LPX. It's South American and I think it's Portuguese, not really sure.

@FreeEarCandy,

Thanks for the ratings and comments!! πŸ‘

I did a small amount of retouching on the original tracks, but Supercharger put the kick in the drums.

I too used tiny speakers for a long time, then one day I decided to put a real amp and speakers on my MacPro running the audio from the Mac's optical out to the amp input. Made all the difference in the world!!

@becwil,

Glad you approve. This has been one of my best and favorite original tracks for a long time, but I always felt it needed more punch and volume.

I actually remastered this from the original tracks.

I'm so impressed with the new gadgets I hardly know what to do.

Well, that's not true.

I just dug through 6 hard drives looking for oldies that I've always wanted to rework and I found 4 that I'm going to start working on this weekend.

Yaaay! TOYS!!!

@mre,

Thanks!

I just got the new NI Komplete 11 and a new Arturia Spark. Still trying to figure out the Spark... I can get Logic Pro to see the pads on the Spark but the sequencer is another thing. Several of the synths on this track are new to me. Plus I also used NI Supercharger for the first time on the mastering.

@Narananda,

Many thanks! Coming from you such praise makes me very happy!! smiley

I am a fan of your work as well. I still would love to collab sometime!
