Podcast #003 – Chillout

It has been raining here in Los Angeles for 5 days in a row now, so instead of sitting trapped in the house I cranked out a quick mix. This one is mellow and downtempo, and the sound of the rain outside was my inspiration for the laid back beats.

Track listing:

  • Sleeping Beauty Pills – Deadmau5
  • The Man I Love – Worldwide Groove Corporation
  • Shake it Loose – B-Tribe
  • Transparent Things – Fujiya & Miyagi
  • Pink Blue Hotel – Baul Dimensi
  • Les Djins (Trentemoller Remix) – Djuma Soundsystem
  • Mer du Japon – Air
  • Sola Sistim – Underworld
  • California Suite – King Koopa
  • Trainspotting – Primal Scream
  • Suzuki – Tosca
  • A Final Hit – Leftfield
  • All Right – Guardner

Going retro, all the way back to the Insustrial Revolution!

If you go by the logic of some people that going old school and spinning vinyl is much hipper and cooler than spinning mp3s, then there’s no fucking way you can beat this cat, with his steam powered record turntable! It sounds like crap, but man is it cool.

Video of it in action:

Commodore 64 8-bit synth emulator

This is a free VST plug-in for Windows that reproduces the retro 8-bit gaming sound of the classic Commodore64 computer.

There are ways to create the 8-bit sound by using converters and such, but it doesn’t get any easier (or more fun) than with this plug-in that you load up to any VST compatible music production software.

Visit de la Mancha’s website to download the FREE plug-in.

Now this isnt an example produced by the plug-in, but if you’re a old school video game geek like me, you get the idea…

…or how about a new Contra boss level soundtrack 🙂

Digital turntablism just keeps getting better

Vinyl purists will not like this, but i think it’s a step forward in using modern technology to manipulate sound in a way that has been done for decades (using vinyl records and samplers to mash up a track).

So here is a demo done by DMC champion DJ Shiftee using Native Instrument’s current line-up of toys that make you think twice about holding on to those crates of vinyl.  All you techno geeks like me, check out the 2nd video of how its exactly setup and done. (drool)
