This is a presentation by my friend GL0WKiD of the new album No Tourists by The Prodigy (available on all streaming platforms). A great way to listen to the new tracks mixed along with older tracks and great commentary. Check it out.
Who knew this day would come? Our (first) daughter was born over a month ago and only now I’m writing about this. Just goes to show how invested I am in this blog :)
Seriously, though, it’s been very exhausting to have a newborn in the house. We’re still getting acclimated to the new situation, while enjoying our wonderful beautiful (I’m totally objective) child.
She just started to smile, too, which is heart melting. Getting a smile from her is like a ray of light on a cloudy day. It makes all the hard work worth it. Well.. most of the time, at least :)
I had to put aside my new endeavor of music-making for now. There’s just not enough time for it at the moment. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to it in 2019. Also, I didn’t write about the new and excellent new album by The Prodigy, which I’m enjoying a lot.
My first track with the Deluge is very basic in the sense that I only used sounds from the internal (and vast) library of sounds. Also, I almost didn’t tweak any sound and just used most of them as is. I think it came out OK.
The fourth single from The Prodigy’s upcoming album, No Tourists, is out. It’s called “We Live Forever” and it’s a fresh, fast-paced rave tune that takes you back to the 90s dance days with a modern Prodigy twist.
The new album is out Novemeber 2nd.
The newest track from The Prodigy’s upcoming album, “No Tourists” (out November 2nd), is so badass. I really love it.
I didn’t set out to create a Lo-fi kind of track, but after sampling a few sounds and playing around – it’s what came out. One of the most melodic tracks I ever created, and I like it (the few previous tracks weren’t so nice on the ears :)
All samples used are from the Viktor NV-1 online synth:
- The X-Files
- Moog triangle bass
- singade Sage Lead
In this track I finally realized how I can use filtering to make new sounds. So the only sample I used here (except for internal PO-33 sounds) is the “Pyro Chords” sound sample from the online preview of the Heisenberg synthesizer.
The track is very “electronic” and not so great melodically, but I enjoyed making it a lot and I took my time to enjoy the process.
The second single from the upcoming album “No Tourists” is a proper banger.
This one took a very long time, but not for a good reason. It’s not great overall and the movements at the end are very messy. I simply got stuck making it and wanted to finish.
For this one I used:
Additionally, for the first time, I used effects as part of the final recording. Specifically, I used the unison effects on the PO-33. I think they gave a nice twist to the music.
It took me very long to get this together. It’s not that there was a specific difficulty. I just had a block and wasn’t happy with whatever I was doing. The final result, however, I find quite pleasing :)
