Leaving Orbit in a Can by DJShadowkat 24 days ago
@falconep,

Many thanks! Your input is always welcomed and appreciated.

Sorry I've been behind in listening and commenting on other folks works. I'm still dealing with moving stuff out and in the new home and it's pretty amazing the stuff Ladykat's parents collected over the years. We are slowly going through stuff and much of it we are keeping or giving to her brother and his family.

Peace

Glowing Green Thing 2018 Rework (Test Mix) by DJShadowkat 1 month ago
@pharmakeus,

Glad you enjoyed it. It's kind of like controlled chaos in a way...

Phil had a blast doing this. For a Professional Jazz drummer he's really open minded about different styles of music.

@falconep,

Thanks!

@becwil,

Thanks so much! My friend Phil is working on real drums and percussion for the track and another old friend is going to add some guitar and bass stuff as well. I'll post it when everone's done

Gravity by DJShadowkat 1 month ago
@falconep,

Herculean is a great word to describe it! 😎

There was a bedroom with 42 boxes of books of every type, size and subject stacked to the ceiling.
It was amazing. The local library is going to be getting a nice donation as soon as we get better organized.

Atmospheric Leak by DJShadowkat 2 months ago
Hey folks, I just have to say this and I hope you agree.

Phil’s drum work freaking absolutely nailed the mood of the track and brought it to a level I had not imagined.

A live drummer rather than a drum machine in electronica isn’t unheard of. And we are not done yet.

Damn fine work, Phil. Damn fine work.

@BlancFroid,

Thank you my friend for the kind words.

The way Phil and I synced with my drum machine and his live analog and digital drums was so impressive I literally wept a bit. It went so well you would have thought we were in the same room. I just gave Phil my tracks and told him to β€œhave fun”. He did, so did I.

The last time I felt like this about a collaboration was in 2012 when @pharmakeus and I did this:

I really enjoy your music and would like to collaborate or remix something with you some day! Keep me in mind!

Glad you enjoyed it! We are getting better at this with each track.

Perhaps I have been reticent in regard to returning such kindness and interesting rubber arm stories... ah... the fun we could have around a bonfire.

I have no idea what I’m talking about.

I love ambient a lot as well, got the bug after β€œMusic For Airports” by Brian Eno. I’ve never been the same since.

Metal Modulation by DJShadowkat 7 months ago
I feel that I need to add a comment for everyone who sees this:

Depression is a real serious thing, and nobody should take it lightly. Get help. Be careful of those mind control pills they want you to take. Many will make things worse.

Suicide is NOT the answer UNLESS you or a loved one is suffering a terminal disease that cannot be cured. Otherwise, the pain and guilt left behind by a suicide is devastating for the family.

Get help if depression has a hold of you or anyone you love.

Peace to all,

Mark aka DJShadowkat

LOOKIT DAT by DJShadowkat 8 months ago
@toveco,

Thanks! I’ve recently gotten a bunch of new gadgets and having quite the time figuring them out.

I have to admit that Abelton Live is a completely different elephant than anything I’ve ever used before. I’m pretty sure thst I’ve watched at least 25 videos about it and I’m still reconsidering the decision to stop drinking that I made 20 years ago. I didn’t quit because I drank too much, I was sick of feeling horrible for two days afterwards.

I’ve got something new coming you way soon. I think you’ll dig it.

My drummer friend and I have been recording sessions lately.

Peace

Subterranean & Spaces by DJShadowkat 11 months ago
My wife, LadyKat, dropped her iPhone in the toilet by accident one day so I gave her my iPhone 5s and I got a great deal on an iPhone 7+ with 256GB of memory.

With all this memory and the right apps I've found a way to do both music and video that I can work on in the middle of the night since I don't sleep much more than 4 to 6 hours. I guess that's part of being hyperactive.

I'm really enjoying the Launchpad Pro app and Mac hardware. Awesome stuff for electronic music!

Peace & Banana Pudding,

This is very well done.

Before you completely lambast Logic Pro, I suggest you take some of the inexpensive courses you can find online and learn a little bit more about Logic, because it's WAY more powerful than GarageBand.

Just a suggestion, anyway.

This really sounds good, levels are good and the EQ is excellent.

I like it. A lot. Keep it up!
