    Didn't get as much interest as I hoped on this project. Weird, as I still think anyone into electro etc would proudly wear a shirt displaying their passion for the music!? So I may still give it a go. I've spoken to a few artists. Usual licencing talk, although ten at a time printed in my workshop ain't really gonna put anyone out of pocket. Except me maybe! Oh, one total gent has been amazing as usual. Man Parrish, and pretty much said, ' sounds great, I'm honoured. Send me a couple of shirts a…

  • Man that is awesome. When that kit is all synced up and running together, it must sound like a dream. I'll post some pics of my studio when I've tidied it up! K

  • Breakmixer-yeah you could be right there mate. When rap styles started to change in the mid to late 80s, ( and less and less synths were used) , that was the time I started losing interest. It's just my personal taste I guess, but everything I loved about the music was disappearing, so I stopped buying. I'm all for evolution in music, but the actual songwriting suffered too much. Take, for example, 'fast life' by jeckyl and Hyde.Or aleem-release yourself. Those tracks would sound great being pla…

  • Thanks doctorcrack. Just checked out some of the great demos, and vol 5 might be just what I'm looking for. DC

    Just a quick one. I'm a big fan of freeware vst synths, and been exploring and using some really great sounds recently, but it's been taking me a while to nail the bottom end on the 808 kick drum etc. so I read a lot of online reviews today, and picked up d16s ' Nepheton' drum plug in. Seriously, it pisses on the rest from a great height. Even the first 'classic 808' preset instantly gave me the sound I was spending hours on via eq/compression. I was using it earlier alongside arturias Jupiter 8…

  • Apologies for chipping in to an old thread, but this is something I've been thinking about recently. After years of listening to classic electro cuts, I've been exploring some new artists, and just agree that, although there's some great stuff out there, it does seem to follow the futuristic/instrumental/European path. I would imagine that the main reason is that most artists are just one person, recording in a home studio, making music for the sheer love of it. Which is great! But there's a lot…

    Greetings Electronauts! Would love to hear your opinions! I was recently looking for some old school Electro type tshirts, and was shocked at how little I could find online. I managed to get a Tommy boy logo t shirt, and a home made/transfer 'wild style' shirt. That was about it! So, as I have a small ( but professional ) tshirt screen printing set up, we've decided to do a few small runs of Electro/old school hip hop designs. So I wanted to ask you all, what kind of t shirt design would be most…

    I'm sure a lot of EE members feel the same as myself, in thinking the 'Golden age' of Electro was the early to mid 80's, when labels like streetsounds and the pioneering artists were at their most active (I.e-jeckyll and Hyde, pumpkin, dmx, Newcleus, imperial bros. Etc) And I don't know wether it was just me personally, but it all seemed to end pretty abruptly. I know many artists are still playing, or have started up again due to modern interest, but I'd love to hear from you guys if you have a…

  • Hey diamondetta. Not sure if you found someone yet, but we've got a mastering thing going on at the minute, aimed at Electro heads such as ourselves! I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to post here, as I don't wanna come across like an advert, so gimme a pm or something mate of you want details. Everyone else feel free to gimme a shout if interested. Honestly, anyone can afford this, and I'll even do a sample part of your track to make sure you're happy. Kneill.

  • Ok I might be a few years late here, but someone might be reading this thread. I did! If anyone would like a little tip of how to start off with a basic sound to give some inspiration, seperate your drums out onto seperate channels, even if you're using the same vsti for all of them, and solo the kick drum. Add a long drawn out ' cathedral' type reverb. Then use a gate plug in to chop the tail end of the reverb off. Just enough to make sure the hits don't overlap. Eq the bottom end up and make t…

  • Hey everyone. Been checking out EE for a while now so thought it was time to sign up and get involved!!! Very briefly, my names Kneill,from just outside London, I'm a pro/session musician for 20 years or so, been into Electro from the start pretty much, but will admit that I hated the way it went with dance/techno etc, so didn't keep up to date thru the 90's/00's. My tastes really lie in the classic 80s stuff, but I've recently been working on the new sharon brown ( I specialise in love !?) albu…
