Fresh off the boards: “2010” from The Presence, Produced by Subtitle. This is the first track released from The Presence in about a year. It was recorded and mixed at Nasa Labs, Produced by Subtitle. It’s a promotional track. You can get it for free at www.uncommonmusic.net. Look out for “We Want the Winter” from The Presence late in 2010.
Today I started the mastering for a project from Alpha MC for the B.E.A.R./Briefcase Rockers imprint. I’ll probably be working on this over the next few days. Yesterday I was able to finish mixdowns on the “Intergalactic Rap Attack (Nasa Remix)” from Atari Blitzkrieg feat. C-Rayz Walz and “Warlock Junkie” from Adam Warlock that will be on Eleven’s “Chapter 1” compilation.
Worked on the Nasa Remix of “Intergalactic Rap Attack” all day today. It’s from Atari Blitzkrieg and features C-Rayz-Walz. Asking a guy named Nasa to remix a track called “Intergalactic Rap Attack” is pretty much a lay up huh? Expect what you would expect.
Adam had to tie up a few cameos today. Got the verse for “Gasoline Dreams” done which will also feature Computer Chip & Passive 65ive, produced by Agartha Audio and also dropped a full track for Eleven’s “Chapter 1” project. That song is called “Warlock Junkie”. To get at Adam for verses, hit up email@example.com. To get at Nasa for mixes, hit up the same email. Their tight like that.
Random Song of the Day I’ve Produced: “Nuclear Five” by The Presence feat. Masai Bey, Karniege & Aesop Rock. This song came up on shuffle on my Ipod today. The lyrics really pop with today’s current events, maybe even more so then in 2005. Still can’t believe I got these 3 guys to drop two 16s each for us for this song, making it almost 6 minutes in length. Glad they went along with the concept so strongly, really proud of this track.
Random Song I’ve Mixed of the Day: Aesop Rock: The Greatest Pac-Man Victory in History. This is off the “Bazooka Tooth” LP. Peep all the panning and phasing effects that I put on this in order to really make it feel like your tripping, to match the feel of the track.
Get at me to mix your track, I can add something special for an affordable price.
Collecting tracks from the back catalog to include on my “Iomega Years” Bandcamp release. It will feature unreleased beats from each of the years I’ve been making them on the MPC. That’s 11 (years & beats).
Izotope’s “Vinyl” Plug in essential to anyone mixing hip-hop, or really any genre. It’s amazing. It replicates the sound of vinyl in a very accurate manner. It let’s you add pops (you can determine how many per cycle), dust (also user defined in amount), Mechanical and Electrical Noise, warping, etc. It also let’s you set the vinyl to a pressing from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and more. You can choose between 33/45/78 as well. Can’t say enough about it. Not only does it make a sample that might be too clean a bit dirtier, it can also separate out a sample that blends too much with some of the other stuff in your mix too. Best of all, I got it for free from the company.
