    Can't listen to it in my country. What is it?

  • Thanks man, some damm good remixes too!

  • Yes, the compilation is done and is mastered. It has been for a very long time. It is waiting for my wife to do the artwork (which I promised her).

    Thanks man, never heard this before. Kind of weak that it's only a 2 bar loop of my shit with some intermittent scratching over it.

    What Mat said Lukas. The venue where the DJ is playing is supposed to pay performance fees.

    Yes, it's illegal to distribute them without permission, and a bigger bugaboo if you sell them. However, if all you are planning to do is distribute them and/or sell them on a minor basis, to family, friends, local customers and the like, then go for it. However, if you plan to do something major like selling them in a store online you should be careful.

  • Well, looks like it was another successful night for the SS fans and another disappointing result for the haters!

  • Got fukked up the ass by Hurricane Sandy this week, so putting off the preview show at least another week.

  • A couple of people want to tighten up their already accepted remixes a bit, so instead of October 27th I will preview them on the November 3rd show.

  • OK... UPDATE TIME!!!!! This has been the worst year of my life... bar none... by far, yet in the midst of it I have been extremely blessed! This is a secret of life that has long kept me sane, that even amidst the worst it is possible to find blessings. I only wish that more people understood this, the blessings are there, seek them out. Anyway, my mother passed away in the middle of this project, so very little has been done on my end. However, since bills have to be paid business must go on, a…

    Quote from lj;65789: “It's crazy that you feel "Jam on it" was just a quick track to satisfy the record company … for me (and I guess for many others), that track still stands to be one of the greatest Hip Hop tunes of all time!” Oh, don't get me wrong, I am VERY proud of it! I knew right when I made it that it was dope and the only track I ever made that I fully expected to be huge. BUT, the only reason I made it was because the record company wanted us to do a rap record... I wanted to put out…

    OK, sorry this took me a minnit, but I've been mad busy and this topic is not easy for me. You see, by the time we had gotten to the Positive Messenger tracks that would later be used for Newcleus we had already developed our own styles and methodologies. I would start with a bass line, then a beat, then either chords or a sequence. At this time Chilly was playing in a Reggae band (that I had been fired from... again) so most of the tracks I either wrote and completed myself or I saved an elemen…

    Nah, I've never met Mike, but have built with him on forums many times. I'll check in.

    Quote from Simmo;65349: “'Im Not A Robot' is possibly my favourite Newcleus recording, in fact it is one of my favourite songs ever, any group, any genre. So this dicussion is good stuff, very interesting. I am not familiar with much Kraftwerk material though (imagine that on an electro forum!!), so I will have to check out those tracks to see if I can hear the similarities. Funny enough I always made that connection with the Warp 9 track, didn't really think about who was first they just remind…

    Quote from lj;65336: “nice! i have to admit i prefer the lushness and big production of the album version, but the smoooooooooth vocals of the original recording are way cool. the lower key seems to suit the song better.” That IS the album version. It was a rough mix taken right after we recorded it. I guess that it just wasn't fast enough for Fearing so he pitched it up. He could have done the exact same lushness and big production (translation: effects and reverb) without pitching it and you w…

    BTW, here is the original studio recording before Jonathan Fearing got his grubby hands on it and changed the pitch (and key of course) and made me relay the vocal. jamonproductions.com/audio/New…obot%20(24TRK%20Ruff).mp3

    Yeah, the hi-hat pattern is from the break part. Yep, just like you wouldn't know that the "Jam On It" bass line was a bite of "Situation". The key to biting something properly is breaking down the essence of what makes it dope or funky, and then applying that to something of your own creation. That's the difference between a steal and a bite. I stole the hi-hat pattern, but I bit the bass line and other elements. So, I didn't "get away" with anything, biting is how most music is made. "Light Ye…

    Quote from wex;65306: “Oh man... I'm never said that! I just said what you've just confirmed :)” Well, basically what was said was... Quote from wex;65024: “ You mostly used electro rhythmic structure, that different from funk rhythmic structure.” Quote from Cozmo D;65028: “NO! I was using a Brooklyn street rockin' structure. The beats were straight from funky breaks that I played as a DJ. The Bass lines were ALL Funk inspired. Only the arpeggios and sequences came from Electronic Music, and the…

  • Due to unforeseen circumstances with my family life, I have put this and most of my projects on hold temporarily. Therefore I am extending the deadline to Monday, August 27th.
