  • osmark86 Tip for beats is a lot of parallell compression and some tasty use of saturation on a drum bus. Then some subtle room reverb on your percs n tops. Tune your kick to the song too.

  • Dolving999 Yo JS! How are you doing? I remember you being one of the few here on sputnik who was interested in my music, and just for that I thank you immensely! I finally got around to releasing my latest album, so if you are into weird stuff, please consider checking it out. Here's the link (check the list I made for Spotify/YT): https://remeocivitas.bandcamp.com/album/modern-realism

  • Sniff New Physics House band pure fire

  • mindleviticus I modded a few synths and made my own sampler to get some of the sounds in Reaktor 6 and the mixing/mastering was done in FL studios.
    April 14 04:04 PM
  • SAPoodle It's really good, I like that it was a bit more subtle, although I still reckon the balance you had on Personal Infinity with the more piano-based tracks interspersed between the drone ones makes it my personal favourite. This is up there, though, everything you've done has been great. Yeah you inspired me to use Reason too haha I haven't managed to make anything nearly as good as you have but I'm definitely digging experimenting with it!
    July 24 02:10 PM
  • SAPoodle New EP is great man, really digging it!
    July 23 02:57 PM
  • I've been meaning to tell you man, it's been over a year since this happened already but oh well, I went to visit my friend in Chile and we sat on his piece of land on this island high as **** and looked out over the most beautiful natural scenery. While all this happened, we listened to Dead Branches... and the moment was perfect. So thanks for that memory mate.

  • Josh D. A place down the street rents instruments, and they have a pedal club where you can rent them 1,2, or 3 at a time and swap them out as much as you want. So I'm currently trying to hammer down a sound by combining different ones. So if yall have pedal recs or playing tips you come across, I'm looking for them.
    January 9 11:38 AM
  • Josh D. I'm actually experimenting with guitar pedals for the first time (I'm not a guitar player, but I need new sounds). So if you know your way around ambient guitar, that's what I'm pretending to do next.
    January 8 11:51 AM
  • osmark86 Resampling and working with samples tend to give richer sounds imo than pure synthesis, but sometimes you just want a really pure synthy sound like a slightly messed up saw or whatnot. Best of both worlds is where it usually goes.
    August 14 11:54 AM
  • osmark86 Ah nice, it's a swedish company behind reason here in sthlm. Wouldn't mind working there sometime in the future. I usually mess with manipulating presets in synths but I make a few from scratch as well. Usually it's just me and my laptop so I tend to program midi which takes forever when working on swing and dynamics etc ^^. I have a midi controller though just not at home.
    August 14 11:51 AM
  • osmark86 thanks a lot man. I use FL Studio atm as my DAW of choice because I've used it for so long and understand the workflow. mainly I work with a lot of samples (my own, from various packs youtube etc) and incorporate a lot of synths as well. I'll record my guitar every now and then too. can't say I'm an expert producer, but I've picked up a bunch of tricks over the years and mainly employ those or purposefully break the rules when I feel like a song calls for it. what do you use yourself mate?
    August 13 09:05 AM
  • Mongi123 Nice man glad it?s working for you too. Same here I pop up every now and then and I still keep it as a music database.
    June 10 02:47 PM
  • Mongi123 Hey man everything?s good! Just jamming, trying to make money and get through school hahaha what about you??
    June 10 12:19 PM
  • Mentasm I'm baiting that astral guy so shhh
    June 7 03:20 PM
  • lalchimiste Thanks for the kind words, it's an honor to be part of the label. As my first time releasing something I was definitely not expecting such positivism.

    May 1 01:24 PM
  • Dewinged Tx a lot for checking it man, glad to hear you liked it! I haven't followed up in a while but will have to get on the new stuff some time soon.
    April 27 06:10 PM
  • Cygnatti oh didn't know rival consoles had a new one! i have a running narrative in my head that every new year has it's own "immunity", 2014 - dave dk, 2015 - kiasmos maybe, 2016 - rival consoles, i didn't keep up with 2017 to find if it had one tho ~
    April 24 02:30 PM
  • Cygnatti on the off-chance ur still interested in stuff that sounds like immunity, try: dave dk - val maira, and kiasmos - s/t. not quite the same, but i think they all reach similar ends through different means.
    April 24 03:58 AM
  • Dewinged My stuff is under Manuel Trillo here and in bandcamp. Hope you enjoy it!
    April 22 11:14 AM
  • Dewinged I know how it is to put the baby out in the world after a lot of work man, so no worries. That said, this is pretty good dude, in all honesty. The closer is massive.
    April 21 12:17 PM
  • Dewinged Sure man, gonna jam it. Digging that art.
    April 21 09:10 AM
  • SAPoodle Dude really, who does your album art? Always really great! (Excited to hear the music it contains too haha)
    March 25 03:05 PM
  • DungeonBoy That's awesome man! Whenever you're close to finished just send us an email at thegreenmanlabel@gmail.com and we can go from there
    January 31 06:17 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hey man, I know you just released a new record, but do you have any plans for an upcoming release anytime this year? It could even be an EP, doesn't need to be a full length. If you're interested, we'd like to release your next album on The Green Man. The new Boring Bathtimes is coming out in a couple days, and my project Rota Fortunae is releasing an EP next month, both on the label. Cheers!
    January 31 04:32 PM
  • NorwichScene Lol, yeah Black Peaks not same genre, just saying that and TWBF are my most anticipated albums this ear
    January 26 08:30 PM
  • DungeonBoy Awesome to hear! we're working on sorting out some stuff at the moment, but will keep you in the loop
    January 24 06:52 PM
  • DungeonBoy Currently we have 3 artists on the label. Boring Bathtimes (https://boringbathtimes.bandcamp.com/) Meus (https://meus.bandcamp.com/album/miserere-mei-deus) and Rota Fortunae (https://rotafortunae.bandcamp.com/) if you are interested in the type of music we are interested in the type of music we are promoting. All 3 of the current projects are more on the acoustic folky side of things, but we have reached out to similar ambient projects such as yours since we feel they would fit with our label
    January 24 02:16 PM
  • DungeonBoy Nice man, that's awesome. Fellow Sputniker ButteryBiscuitBass and I have started a web label called The Green Man, and are seeking quality artists interested in releasing their work on it. 100% of your earnings will go directly to you, and the idea of the label is more of a community based collective that will help with artist promotion. We both agreed that your new album "When the Rest of Heaven Was Blue" would be an excellent addition, so if you?re interested we?d love to have you on the label
    January 24 02:15 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hey man, just wanted to let you know, I listened to your new release this weekend while I was working on some art, and I think it's excellent stuff! I remember checking out a previous release of yours which I thought was good, but the new one left a much greater impact on me. Cheers and congrats!
    January 23 05:53 PM
  • SAPoodle There's a sput compilation? Sounds awesome! I dunno man, your piano sounds pretty good to these ears already. It works well with the more textural stuff.
    January 8 01:39 PM
  • SAPoodle Just listened to Diomira - great track! Would have been a perfect fit for the second half of Personal Infinity. I really enjoy the more piano-based tracks of yours
    January 3 12:17 AM
  • Frippertronics much appreciated, beautiful cut you got
    December 23 03:24 AM
  • Dewinged Yo JS, checked the whole thing. Really nice man, Halo is my favourite by far. That piano melody is genuinely beautiful. About voices yeah dude, just record yourself and crank that reverb up and give it a shot. A female voice would also fit really well imo. I also have my stuff in bandcamp, not sure if it will be your thing but feel free to check it out: https://manueltrillo.bandcamp.com/
    December 20 06:03 AM
  • tacos n stuff Personal infinity was fukkin sweet man
    December 20 12:32 AM
  • tacos n stuff ill give your jams a go later today bruh
    December 19 05:42 PM
  • Dewinged Jammed your album up to Watermark, cause I had to go do smth else but really good so far man, very well produced and carried out. I don't know if some song will have them, but I would love to hear some track with some ethereal vocals.
    December 19 08:28 AM
  • Dewinged Cheers man, digging that cover and color palette, will jam it later!
    December 19 12:40 AM
  • SAPoodle And thanks for checking out my stuff too man! I wasn't joking when I said I hope I can make something as good as (pretty much anything off) Personal Infinity one day. I've listened to it every day since downloading it, can't get enough!
    December 12 11:02 AM
  • SAPoodle I checked out your first EP too! I'll need to give it another listen before I give an opinion on it. I think, though, the way you structured Personal Infinity is part of what makes it work so well; the piano interludes kind of keep the whole thing going without allowing it to become too dreary. Mind if I ask what you used to create it? I'm super amateur when it comes to making my own music so Claustrophobia is really just me messing around
    December 12 11:00 AM
  • SAPoodle Honestly no problem man, I genuinely love the album! If I ever make anything half as good as what you've done on here I'll be stoked haha! Yeah, I mean, I'm just one opinion so hope you didn't cut down Afterimage just because I thought it was too long haha but I'm listening now and it does seem to be a lot better. I really like what you do with all your voice samples by the way, the way they blur into the music is pretty unique.
    December 11 03:39 PM
  • SAPoodle Hey man, just want to tell you I checked out your Devictus project and it really moved me. That's really, really rare, that something I picked up out of the blue manages to have any real effect on me, so well done because you've made some genuinely fantastic music. I look forward to hearing what you have to offer in future.
    December 9 07:11 AM
  • Shave have a nice day :)
    November 8 12:06 PM
  • GmemberKills I definitely look forward to more stuff, and maybe a ep or something one day. I'd be curious to know a bit how you created it too, if you are will willing to share
    October 16 09:37 PM
  • GmemberKills Oh s***. Glad you decided to finally take a crack at it. I'm honestly impressed, there is a lot of nice organic textures going on throughout the piece, and it feels like it has some natural progression. There is a lot of user/bandcamp 'ambient' that is just s***ty vsts or lame acoustic guitar noodling, this is excellent tbh.

  • clavier There's this fun math rock band from Northern Ireland called Eatenbybears - they've got a fiddle which is really cool. Colour is poppier math rock, maybe not as technical as their peers but they've got much spirit. I've just checked out the Vasa album, I really like their Celtic vibes - actually ties into Eatenbybears' style.
    June 17 04:31 PM
  • clavier That Hikes album is pretty damn good
    June 16 08:19 PM
  • GmemberKills yo! did you ever try to make some music???
    January 11 11:11 PM
  • Sniff That Apocryphos album is amazing, thanks for the rec!
    December 8 12:41 PM
  • GmemberKills As far as interface brand recs go, look into getting something like a focusrite or presonus. Those are a lot more durable and most have built in xlr power too, so if you ever wanted you'd be able to use a real microphone. They infinitely sound better than a usb mic ever could. If you are interested in a midi keyboard though, be aware certain ones need to be setup with FL while others have near instant compatibility.
    November 24 05:01 PM
  • GmemberKills No problem. Fl studio has a mild learning curve but there is a of lot tutorials on youtube and i could probably help if you get stuck as well. I actually don't use a midi keyboard, but if you plan to use any virtual keyboards/sounds it would makes things easier. With the audio interface though i'm able to hook my keyboards/guitar/anything straight into the inputs on it and record directly which sounds really nice especially for the keys.
    November 24 04:35 PM
  • GmemberKills Ugh typos.... hopefully all that helps some though lol
    November 23 05:24 PM
  • GmemberKills Audacity is more of simpler straightforward recorder/editor in comparison to fl studio, but it's what I used to record the whole first white seed album with and I still use it today for certain situations as well. those things are like the minimum to get you started, and it's kind of how i started out as well. if you end up wanting to upgrade and have more options/better recordings a audio interface is must, along with a program like fl studio which is refereed to as a DAW.
    November 23 05:22 PM
  • GmemberKills It definitely can be useful. You can make some nice ambience with just a guitar, a few chords and some effects. Really If you have a keyboard/piano, some type of mic (could even be like a cellphone or something) and a computer you'd be surprised what you can start creating. You just need to get a hold of a recording program tho, i'd recommend something audacity (free) and fl studio.
    November 23 05:15 PM
  • GmemberKills *you can easily start recording with limited equipment. I can definitely give you tips on how to get started too.
    November 23 01:39 AM
  • GmemberKills Nice. That project is what i'm more focused on now anyway. Well tbh i don't really know much music theory or hardly use any computer based instruments. Pretty much all the instrumentation for white seed is made from guitar/pedals/cheap synths/ and samples. sometimes I manipulate the recorded sounds with a computer but that is about it. you might need more gear if you want to achieve a certain sound, but you can easily start recording
    November 22 11:36 PM
  • GmemberKills yo! i'd be glad too. are you referring to my crooked sun stuff or whiteseeD??? either way i could definitely help you out some, I've learned a lot too since i've put out my last release.
    November 22 10:28 PM
  • zaruyache If they were to get more invested in it they could prob be oretty OK. :)
    August 10 05:33 PM
  • zaruyache "Glaramara" is pretty decent. Songs aren't very long, and the production isn't great, but they're not bad. The clean guitars sound great, though; it's that vocal mixing and that faux-raw guitar sound aren't awesome, but what can you do?
    August 10 01:05 AM
  • Astral Abortis Not entirely similar but look up the new Garotted demo!
    May 22 09:17 PM

  • minty901 ah i guess you were lucky then. i saw them at nottingham rock city. ive seen countless bands there and every time the sound has been terrible. i knew it wasnt going to be a good gig but i still went because i wanted to see them. should have driven the extra distance and gone to manchester.
    June 6 07:07 AM
  • minty901 I have seen them live (and they did play Sycamore) but unfortunately it was at a venue with a terrible sound system and they were supporting HIM, so the whole audience was there to see a different band and talked over Caspian the whole time. It was very, very disappointing, though not the fault of the band. I hope to see them again some time, properly. How about you?
    June 4 03:08 PM
  • minty901 You love Sycamore Live at Old South Church right?Have you seen their new live video for the song from their upcoming blu-ray release?https://www.facebook.com/CaspianTheBand/videos/vb.6049165674/10153292683125675/?type=2

  • TheRealVermicide9013 I really doubt that you have heard Edguy's album, is more enjoyable than the ****in avril lavigne album, c'mon give a reason why should I rate with a lower score that Edguy's work
    April 27 12:41 PM
  • TheRealVermicide9013 Edguy rapes Avril JS,this album of edguy is funnier and displays more talente. Besides bitchin summer, hello kitty, the duet with chad kroger and the single rock and roll were bad for my ears :D

  • OmairSh Those ****ing vocals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJwSZIajEvI
    March 17 11:48 PM
  • OmairSh Been good. I've actually been more active of late. Just trying to listen to more new music. You tell. Haven't seem much of you in fact
    March 17 05:46 PM
  • OmairSh Yaoooza
    March 16 07:53 PM
  • Mongi123 Yea dude they work surprisingly well and I never thought I'd warm up to vocals like this in the shoegazing genre or just in general. It's pretty amazing.
    March 8 10:00 PM
  • Mongi123 I reevaluated my Alcest ratings and review man. I edited it like crazy. Shelter is still fantastic but it grew off a little bit after hearing Ecailles which doesn't normally happen to me when it comes to music :/
    March 8 09:46 PM
  • Mongi123 Tried your rec man. It was pretty great. Nothing out of the ordinary and some sounded like they could have been ripped right out of Violent/Bright but some awesome songs on there.
    February 28 12:01 AM
  • Mongi123 The guitar riffs in the title track part 2 are amazing. I'm pretty neutral about those type of vocals on here though. Hopefully they grow.
    February 25 08:58 PM
  • Mongi123 Lovin me some Alcest man! Really enjoying Ecailles and I'm surprised I am. I don't hate the vocals like I do on Sunbather. I don't love them either but they don't bring down the beautiful music.
    February 24 11:28 PM
  • Mongi123 Haha I'll throw that on my list and see if I like it! If it's anything like Violent/Bright then I probably will.
    February 23 12:22 AM
  • Mongi123 Oh sweet. It has a decent amount of rates too so I'm surprised it doesn't have a review.
    February 22 03:02 PM
  • Mongi123 Which album?
    February 22 02:20 PM
  • TooLateToGoBack Hah, found ya on here!
    February 17 09:24 PM
  • Mongi123 Thanks so much man I plan on it
    February 12 10:00 PM
  • Mongi123 Hell yea man! :D

    February 6 09:33 PM
  • Jacquibim Glad you liked them, any favs?
    February 4 01:32 AM
  • Jacquibim Depends on what you mean by "decent production", but if you check out my "Death Metal of The 2010s" list you should find a tonne of stuff you'll dig. The descriptions should give you an idea of what you're looking for.
    February 1 01:49 PM
  • Mad. Yo, how come you've never reviewed anything? You seem like a pretty articulate fella
    January 26 12:01 PM
  • Frippertronics hey man, got an Enid review for Touch Me up if you're interested
    January 20 06:07 PM
  • Mongi123 Yea dude hearing that song a second time made me 5 it. If those two bands are anything like that then I may have to check them out
    January 8 05:36 PM
  • Mongi123 I haven't man. I don't normally listen to indie rock stuff but damn, this album is different. Just saw all of the fantastic ratings and comments it was getting and I had to try it. What do you think of Here Is Where?
    January 8 05:22 PM
  • postrockpaperscissor Have you heard El Ten Eleven? Oh my god, man.
    January 2 05:35 AM
  • Mad. I dunno, they said they're all still mates, just that 'it seemed like a good time to finish' or somet
    December 12 07:59 AM
  • Mad. Ah, were you at Arctangent? You caught one of their last ever gigs, they broke up :'(
    December 11 06:27 PM
  • Mad. This is feckin' unmissable http://humanfly.bandcamp.com/album/awesome-science-2
    December 10 06:11 PM
  • OmairSh Love this song (the band is brilliant) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pwj1RZTEdUw, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19qiAOyykIs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG_9QyPvrM0, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhlIHb3SKyw, sorry for the bombardment :-P
    December 8 07:39 PM
  • OmairSh Glad you liked it :-) (I'm obsessed with it, it's so gorgeous), I have plenty more but didn't know if you'd enjoy. And since you're not in the prog mood, perhaps the cultural music will fit right in :-). http://vimeo.com/80033590, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEjfiBWPHmA, you can turn the captions on for the songs that have them. If you want more songs my latest list has a few, enjoy :-)
    December 8 07:32 PM
  • OmairSh Nah it's coo, it's your opinion :-)
    December 8 07:13 PM
  • OmairSh Then don't rate the stuff when you're not even in the right mood dude
    December 8 02:33 AM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJlhSU6_HPI. Liquid tensions 2.5? Someone wants their objectivity to go uup
    December 7 09:39 PM
  • Jacquibim Yeah it should have more attention, might even review it.
    November 30 01:52 PM
  • Artuma sweet, such a great album
    November 29 05:09 PM
  • anarchistfish Nah I didn't. My A Levels were mostly ok, although the marking for Geography at A2 was so harsh that I wasn't far off missing my offer.
    November 26 10:21 PM
  • anarchistfish Actually no, history was harder.
    November 26 04:50 PM
  • anarchistfish Lol I had to learn the entire music gcse course in year 11 cos our year 10 teacher taught us s*** all. Hated the practical aspect too and we were the worst class at simmering down and actually doing work. Honestly turned out to be the hardest gcse. Have some fond memories of our banter and the love hate relationship with our year 11 teacher though.
    November 26 04:48 PM
  • anarchistfish I know what you mean. In retrospect it would've been practically impossible for it to reach my expectations, but it's still a hell of a lot better than school.Sweet, thanks. At the moment it still seems very basic and entry level. I'm in France for my 3rd year too (doing a 4 year course).
    November 26 04:27 PM
  • anarchistfish Pretty good. Workload's gone insane lately though. Even the other geographers are complaining about it and they don't have the extra 6 hours of language open units a week which drag half my days on til 6-7pm and for which I have exams next week. Otherwise it's good although relationships with flatmates can get strained. How's Lancaster?
    November 26 04:01 PM
  • anarchistfish There's literally one mixed race girl out of 155~ and that's it.I actually like the idea of sociology. Sometimes wish I'd taken something like psychology or history instead cos that kind of stuff interests me a lot. Tried to take social psychology as an open unit but it clashed with my geography so I couldn't.Always wonder what it would've been like if I'd gone Nottingham or Exeter instead.
    November 26 02:50 PM
  • anarchistfish 1st year Bristol. Soooo many white posh girls man. For a "study of the world" subject it's insanely non-internationalist.
    November 26 02:27 PM
  • anarchistfish Where you studying?
    November 26 01:32 AM
  • CK Urgh I really wish I preordered this one, though I've preordered their past three so I can't say I haven't done my part in being a loyal fan hah. How does it stand against Departure Songs?
    November 23 08:59 PM
  • LilLioness It is definitely one of the most eye catching on here.
    November 3 06:44 PM
  • LilLioness I am curious what your forum pic is of.
    November 3 06:32 PM
  • OmairSh Dude you might like some stuff on my new list
    October 28 03:21 AM
  • CK I don't think I ever straight up told you this but I love you for the fact that you share my undying love for Hammock
    October 1 04:18 AM
  • DecayingMajesty Ok :)
    September 20 08:13 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Your comments suggested you did. I apologise for accusing you, I've been taking everything that everybody says to literally lately :)
    September 20 06:40 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Its obvious you dislike me with a strong intent. What is your problem?
    September 20 05:45 PM
  • OmairSh "Not really possible for her to look bad" Ma man, they say the truth hurts, I guess what hurts is that I'll never get to meet her.........Unnless

  • Mad. Hey man have you heard Mother's Cake - Creation's Finest or Airbag - All Rights Removed? I bet you'd dig that stuff
    August 21 01:03 AM
  • Mongi123 Sweet I check soon thanks
    August 12 09:51 PM
  • Mongi123 I haven't dude what's a good place to start?
    August 12 01:23 PM
  • OmairSh When the **** did you get 1200 ratings? Damn son
    August 12 08:47 AM
  • Mongi123 Hey dude I tried out Slow Dancing Society- The Sound Of Lights When Dim. Pretty good stuff but I can tell this type of stuff I would listen to when I'm in a certain mood.
    August 11 10:11 PM
  • peartnoy Yes it is indeed me on the picture. And that t-shirt is awesome.
