Still Breaking Beats

Besides all of the instrumentals I’ve actually I’d finished and even in some cases circulated to collaborators only to have them choose only handful from what was offered, I also have a number of songs that were done or close to done that I’d never even rendered out because they were little one off ideas while I was in the middle of other projects. However, a little digging let put together the above Drum n’ Bass EP. It’s pay what you want (including free,) so long as you have time download it, you might as well 😀

Regarding those other unreleased instrumentals, I’m going to consider putting those together into a release as well.

Oh, and here’s the YouTube version of the EP:

Legacy Content

All of my back catalog that wasn’t posted to my main YouTube channel is now online here. I decided to split that material off from my main channel as I no longer know which albums these belonged to (well, I didn’t want to dig through CDs at my parents’ place to work it out,) and because most of it is fairly mediocre. Of course, I was only a teenager when I wrote most of it, and there are few decent gems hiding in with the junk there, but there it wasn’t worth binning the content beyond maybe a few YouTube playlists I’ll put together later. Besides, I figured since I could upload it easily thanks to a couple of nifty open source python scripts I tweaked and knitted together (I will post my code online once I clean it up a little,) I might as well do so.

Having posted those songs up, that pretty much only leaves mash-ups, remixes for other artists and mixtapes as the only material I haven’t uploaded to YouTube. I don’t see my self bothering with uploading them at the moment. I now have over 500 songs on YouTube on those two accounts alone, and I figure that’s good enough for the moment.

Otherwise, the main thing going on with me is that I’ve graduated university, and I’m looking for work. I’m doing a lot of programming tests at the moment, and though I’m feeling a little fatigued, I’m pretty sure that’s just anxiety regarding these opportunities. Hopefully, I’ll have something lined up soon enough.

EDIT:

Behold, the best of my worst. I guess that’s supreme mediocrity. 😀

From Marcy to Medical Mechanica

May’s Music Release: FLJZ (Jay-Z x The Pillows) produced by Ultraklystron

YouTube:

Download: Mediafire.

Originally this was a collab with Esselfortium, but this was at least 8 years ago when he was first getting his production skills up, so upon his recommendation, I’m only putting my tracks from the EP up. Still, I think holds up oddly well, even though I think I’ve pulled my skills up myself.

In case it’s not obvious, all of instrumental samples were pulled from J-Rock band The Pillows, specifically from their contributions to the FLCL soundtrack. The vocals are Jay-Z’s, specifically often remixed Black Album.

A Boatload Of New Music

April’s Free Release:
Ultraklystron – Music For Tablets (Mediafire)

Oh, and this was finally finished as well:

Meanwhile, I’ve just wrapped my finals up. I have countless resumes to send out at the moment (and a lot of leads to follow up on now that I have the time,) but there is still tons of music in my archives for me to finally group together and release, so I should be able to keep up with my goal of a EP or more per month.

Enigma Decoded – This Month’s Instrumental EP

Posted on February 27th, 2013

Youtube Playlist:

MediaFire Download 320kbps MP3:
Enigma Decoded: A Katawa Shoujo Remix EP

So, I found these tracks hiding in the depths of my hard drive around about the time the game had it’s one year anniversary, and so I figured I should gather them up, give a quick once over before release, and put them out the world. I was going to hold off even longer as the text file in the download would note, but I’ve realized I have so many instrumentals in my back-catalog that I can put out an EP like this a month.

I think I might.
