Rocket or Chiritori - Tokyo Young Winner
Shes such a cutie
Rocket or Chiritori is an obscure Indie Band From Japan. I Cant find any more info about this proyect, i only found who Satoko Shibahara, the cutie of the cover is the only member (maybe shes a multi multi-instrumentalist who knows)and just made 3 albums, 2 in the 90s and the last one in the bright days of 2009.
Tokyo Young Winner Is a very "Spring" Album who is notable for his Warm, Sweetness, Emotion, and Charisma.
Has some electic moments, the album is not purely An Indie Pop Album but theres a lot of Folk and Bit of Twee pop too and every tracks mix all those elements in a delicious bittersweet juice
And in top of that The lofi is very well executed, sometimes this makes some tracks sounds like a Song sound coming out of a Cheap Crappy chinese radio player, or a group of friends who played some jams in a tiny bedroom and record it with an old cassette player
This makes very noisy but is well controlled enough enough not to be inaudible Everything is chaotic and Noisy as Hell but despite that never lose any cham
Very underrated Indie release if You ask Me, maybe is not that memorable but still deserve antention and a sweet headpat.
Selena Gomez - Shake it Up (Len & Rin Kagamine Cover)
What a bop
Yesterday finally heard the tora cover of "Shake it Up" Of Selena Gomez, better know for being the intro of the Disney Sitcom of the same name
I really never liked this kind of shows honestly, or i never watch them seriously but man, most of these shows has some really pure state pop bangers as intros, truly was the golden days of this format i think the only channel who didnt had sitcoms was Cartoon network who at that time they were rockin with shows like Ben 10, bakugan and flipjack (those were the golden days man)
I really enjoyed a lot these songs back then and now, never gets old
And now heard this by my fav vocaloids? oh man, makes this song even better, len and rin are like miku, everything they can sing they turned into fire
Nothing impressive to talk about here, besides the great execution and maestry of the vocaloid bank voices acomplishing a perfect english using japanese banks
This is just fire boi, goes really hard, i mean
Gareth Emery - Meet Her In Miami
The sound of Deception
In 2015 One of My fav trance artist Gareth Emery responsable for many trance gems released that yeah "Meet her in Miami" an obvious remix of the classic track "Meet her at the Love Parade" of 1997 (Oh man, remember when love parade existed?)
Mr emery decided to jump to the train of electro house trend and the result its embarrasing
Even for a cheap, easy to make mainstream Electro house is just mediocre, and thats say much
Its just crap, and a surprising piece of crap coming out of my favorite progressive trance artist Now i get why i never heard nothing of this before Deserves be forgotten
Never heart it, never...
because of that, i dont even dare to put a link of the song
EtheReal Media - Late Night TV
A few days ago i started to listen to a new solid artist in the Vaporwave scene called Ethereal Media. I dont know anything about him or her and just have few releases (four to be exact)
Late Night Tv is a charm but really short album of just 22 minutes where Ethereal tries to creates the atmosphere and sound of a midnight commercials
The production achive this with a really lofi sound, low volume, repetitive samples and white noise and does a good job
All the tracks has their own atmosphere from warm to melancholic and theres a good transition between them, sometimes is added that characteristic sound of the white noise when you change the channel
Very simple album, but powerful, solid and well made
This album represent or is one of my reasons why i love Vaporwave and other kind of similar genres, because any mainstream genre can capture this personal and comfy atmosphere of me listening that smooth jazz tv music and jingles coming out of the tv in the middle of the night thinking about my life or other things
Just Beautiful things that belongs to vaporwave
Dgohn Undesignated Proximate
The Heaven Of Amen Break
One of My Fav Artist of the Dnb World Release the last Year His New Album "Undesignated Proximate" After 2 Years from his last Album "Devils"
Mr John Cunnane Showed to the World A Pretty Solid Release and showed to everybody his love to the DnB sound because "Undesignated Proximate" Is Practially an Ode to the Genre
Besides Being A Drumfunk Producer this album just Go beyond that Transforming this release into a blender of Styles, An "Amen Laboratory" where using the Sound Of Drumfunk to Amospheric Dnb to jazzstep Dgohn did a mix of atmospheres, emotions and complex rythm
Through all the album the Drum Patterns just shine, very creative and adictive DnB beats are all over the place and never gets old even after many times of listen making a "hard to pick a favorite decision" because the album is full of pure Bangers From Daisy takes two to windy to robins willdmill
Theres a good Presence of Mellow and Dark Atmospheres with elemets of the Oldschool Scene
Like the second Track "Lucky Gonk" where theres a Chill Sax reminding to the oldschool sound of Jazzstep/Atmo DnB like Intense or even Nookie, and the level of Climaxes and Build Ups is just insane, sometimes is mellow, other times is a pure dark euphoria, other times the amen pattern is just frenetic and Aggresive.
If you never listened DnB this probably is a good way to start into a multiple sounds in just one album, and for people live me who really loves DnB this is a Must listen and deserves to be part of your DnB Cave
Yuyoyuppe - Planetary Suicide
Miku And Luka Goes Metalheads
Yuyoyuppe, what a tricky name to write huh? I discovered Today and This deserve an Review urgent, because this just rocks!
Yuyoyuppe aparently is A Japanese Vocaloid Producer, but different to other famous names in the vocaloid universe, Yuyoyuppe is one of those producer where takes vocaloid to another side, more darker but heart melodic producing All kinds of Hard Sounds Like Post hardcore, Alt Metal and Mainly Melodic Metalcore A Melodic Genre Born of Metalcore with a heavly influence of Melodic Death Metal
Planetary Suicide Represent maybe a good introduction to the genre or this side of melodic Metal or maybe this side of A more Darker Side of Vocaloid being heavy, agressive but emotionaly melodic without being catchy and even Euphoric
Taking Elements from others genres alike as Alt Metal, a strong presence of Trancecore on the synths (Given me a few flashsbacks to Babymetal, is not similar but u know) and I think Some Black Metal in songs like "Shokuzai" the intro guitar sounds a bit like a BM Guitar and some Blast Beats
Also This Album Shows Me a side of Luka and Miku that I had never heard until now, Yuyoyuppe did a great job pushing Lukas Vocals to a more agressive side, In the entire Album He explored diferents voice banks from Dark, Agressive And Sweet Some tracks even Has some Distorted Vocals to give that "Guttural" Dark Voice, This Element Shines In tracks Like "Prayer" or "I Am A Superman"
Aside of That everything is awesome, the drumming is awesome, the beat pattern rocks, the vocals are insane and the Atmosphere is Melodic and Emotional, theres a lot of Good Combination between sytles and theres even An Acoustic And A Electropop song at the end.
Man, this is underrated as hell, this was released in 2011 and nobody is talking of this? Man should be a Crime This A Good Album for people like Me that are not metalhead or just wants to explore this side of Vocaloid Nothing more to say, Yuyoyuppe good work man
Doja Cat - Say So (Kasane Teto Cover)
The Sexy Side of Kasane
So long time since i wrote a Vocaloid Review and i kinda feel bad for that, since then or being more specific, since this year i found so many great stuff made by the Vocaloid Community, all this time under my radar they are doing some good stuff, pure gems with many styles, similar to the Touhou Community if you want a comparison.
This track is a brilliant example of that, The Person behind of the youtube channel of teto chan! took the work made by ROBOTEYELINER and jingodatta and did some correction in some part and improvs to the kasane teto voice
The result is amazing! This song literally is made for teto, if If Doja Cat not sang this song there would be no difference between the original, its nearly "natural"
Kasane Teto Voice Just match with this song perfectly and in my opinion this is one of the cases when somebody takes all the potential of a Utau, because besides the vocal potential teto chan, made kasane sing Spanish in the half of the song, and sounds so sexy! i dont know if theres some Spanish voice bank of teto (To my knowledge teto just sing in Japanese) but if is not, is definitely some good work behind this
For me i terms of Covers, This has the chance to the a future classic or at least a shinning gem in the biggest list of covers made by a Utau But of now, This won a special Place in my playlist
And If you not heard Kasane Teto sing in Spanish Before? This would be a good start, Seriously, you gonna love it
Avion - Day in The Mall
Decent as an Generic Joystick
Today finally heard an Album who i dig in the Mallsoft Reddit, was released im 2019 in Bandcamp and heard it now 15 minutes ago!
Honestly I dont have too much to say about this album honestly, its.. just.. Mallsoft
An Album like those other million of mallsoft albums in Bandcamp.
But dont take this Bad Generic dosent mean something bad, and this album its a good example, the entire album is full of good jazzy jams and the transition between each other are well made it Theres some good reverb in general on the beat make it some spacy like any good mallsoft album, Besides is controled very well, sometimes some albums abuse of this element in a bad way but this album does well on this regard
And.. Thats it i guess, like i said earlier, theres not so much to speak about but after all its enjoyable, and definitely will give a good time to any Mallsoft/Vaporwave Listener and why not, deserves a place in your Playlist
Theres good melodies, good piano solos, sexy Jazz jams and a does a good job to capture that mall atmosphere, but nothing more, at least theres some work on this album and dosent sound cheap, bad, or those bandcamp albums that seems they were created in 5 minutes and theres some good production though. Its like those cheap bag of chips on the grocery store, Nothing Bad but nothing amazing, but definitely delicious and worth it.
Clown Core- Van
Better than 98% of Cyber/Grindcore existant records
Clown core its an album released the last year by two guys with nighmarish lookin masks, i never listened to this guys before and has been in my "i should listen to this" list in a long time, Recomended by a friend and being review material on rym and finally listened yesterday at night
where i should start? Maybe saying that this album is one of those "theres so many genres" or "wtf is this?", Yeah one of those its hard to put this album in one place. Discogs tag this as "Experimental/Grindcore" but i thinkk the most accurate tag is from rym, tagged as "Electronic, Experimental Rock
Avant-Garde Jazz, Cybergrind, Drumstep, Avant-Garde Metal, Noisecore, Jazz-Rock, Impressionism". You agreed with those tags or not one thing is sure, the mix of styles in this album its just crazy and awesome and really helped to create and unique sound, Kinda similar (Similar in sound not but in creativity in combinate diferent genres)to artist like Igorrr who creates and interesting combination between Metal and Breakcore
Clown core makes an Unique mix between a lot of genres and aside music this guys put a lot of original touch of humor, not fot nothing are clowns *duh*
Anyway, at this point you should asking, How sounds? In a nutshell its Miles Davis playing sax with Agoraphobic Noisebleed if youre a cybergrind listener you maybe have imagined how it sounds and if is not the case, just imagine a Sax musician playing with an death metal band with a guy playing arround with synthesizers Its electic, noise, agressive, weird and chaotic as hell, sometimes executing some unconventional structures someting understandeable in this kind of albums, this makes a great oportunity to show the skills behind the chaos, clearly the clowns behind this are professional musicians or they are in a god level of composition sometimes making some sick drum patters and Sax solos with some serious velocity and precision, this clearly shows in the whole album but shines in tracks like "existance","earth" and "computers" with an added touch of noisy synths and distorted guttural screams
but behind that weirdness, its visible and notable that this guys want to do something creative The Musical transition of "tears of god"shows that, shows a side more melodic and chill mixing a peaceful jazz sax with dreamy pads creating a Spacey ambiance, A song that reminds me to an underrated jazz band of chile "National Proud" called Zeptelar, a band i also recomends who sadly has one album I recomend to watch the visual album of a better expericence, believe me, makes this album much better and its a good way to introduce some aesthetics and personality to every song, with some disgusting, vulgar, and weird humor
A weird expericence, a dark nightmare ,a euphoric experience, or some high effort shitpost, you decide In my side this album, just rocks!
Leviathan Chug Jug With You/Fortnite Is Trash
Future Sound of Hardcore - Vol 1
The Sound of A Euphoric Celestial World
How many underrated artist you know and why do u like it so much? Thats my question with many of obscure artist who im listen, and one of those are the Future Sound of Hardcore an alias for Justin Cohen and Pete Parsons
Now, guided by the simple name we could say that they are basically producers of some kind of aggressive electronic music, you know, Hardcore, Gabber, speedcore and that kind of stuff But no, quite the opposite since they basically do something called Atmospheric Drum and Bass.
Atmospheric Drum and Bass [Or sometimes called “Intelligent Dnb” or “Intelligent Jungle”] so that you do not know is one of the branches of Drum and bass, being this the opposite of drum and bass, since it is pure dnb it is very dark, aggressive, fast and very euphoric
while the Atmo Dnb could be said to be the "Downtempo" version of the dnb focusing on the atmosphere, not having an aggressive rhythm and it is much calmer
Creating a very Chill, Celestial and Dreamlike sound and why not, some kind of aesthetic
The truth is still with the popularity of the scene back in the 90s Future sound of Hardcore were not very prominent producers, I suppose that their discography proves it with only a couple of releases being practically 4 Although many of the legendary DJs on the scene did them justice by putting some of their work on legendary mixes like Dieselboy's "The Future Sound Of Hardcore" (Yep, the same name) In fact, it was thanks to this mix that I discovered Vol 1
Vol 1 is probably one of the best releases Pete and Justin could throw, something that will conquer the heart and soul of any dnb fan including myself.
There are only two songs (Eden and Euphoria) but it is the best that the scene can offer to fans and people who even in 2021 discover these sounds
Eden can simply be cataloged in one word: Magical
It is simply beautiful, just beautiful, it could easily be what it would sound if you were really in Eden, a mixture of a magical atmosphere accompanied by quite versatile amen break patterns that constantly change throughout the song.
Euphoria would be where the rhythmic patterns reign, on the one hand it is a little faster than Eden and on the other hand the rhythmic patterns are much richer and "unpredictable" also a little more aggressive if you can say about all the beat also is Something similar to what you would hear from a song from unreal tournament 99, it has a bit of that feeling. Being honest it would be easy to be part of the soundtrack
But overall both tracks achieve to create a Very Delicate Equilibrium between “Funky” beat patterns and A Very Melodic Atmosphere, like any good Atmo Dnb release, but this is beyond that, it simply a masterpiece, a golden underrated gem Its really impressive that something like this came out in a shinny black peace of vinyl plastic in 1993, Yes! you hear right, 1993! Sounds amazing back then and sounds amazing Now, its just... Timeless Mad respect!
As a bonus im gonna leave the "Future sound of Hardcore" Mix for u to hear it! Its amazing if u love that track check this out!
Sleep Research Center - Deep frieze
"I don't know how I got there, I don't know where I am. I just know I'm lost, I don't know where to go .. Everything is white and frozen. The wind is blowing hard, and my hands are cold. The only thing I want now is to get out of here, I have no alternative but to walk in the eternal white horizon"
Deep Frieze is an album that I've really known for quite some time. It's no surprise, since it's an album released in 2007, but I haven't heard it until now .. Well, being more specific last week, a very sleepy Saturday morning at 3am. I just wanted to take an Ambient album and sleep, and as I remembered that I had discovered this. The truth is that I have no knowledge of this project at all, how much I know that behind Sleep Research Facility there is a British named Kevin Doherty who has apparently released many Ambient / Drone albums and that he has been active since 2001, year in which he released his first album: Nostromo The first time I heard Deep Frieze that Saturday, I really didn't know what I was facing. I thought it was a typical ambient album inspired by Brian Eno or Klaus Schulze, mellow, spatial or hypnotic. This album is Pure Desolation. A dark ambient / Drone very icy, but very icy, the sound is Arctic and bleak, that is why many decide to label projects like this with the dead label "Artic Ambient" The sound creates a very inhospitable atmosphere, similar to an abandoned base in Antarctica or running out of fuel in the middle of an expedition, the only thing related between the two is the arctic environment of infinite white and coldness and the listener, who is trapped in the middle of this white desert. Field recordings elements like the wind help even more to the immersion and construction of this atmosphere, I feel perhaps the element that helps the most and sometimes almost alien sounds can add more to a feeling of discomfort. With this, for the construction of a truly immersive atmosphere, the songs have a minimum duration of 10 minutes, each one almost having a different identity from the other, but they all come to the same thing.
For even more realism or immersion, the song names are actual location coordinates, and most of these are ... well, literally isolated parts of Antarctica. Just search in Google Maps and that's it. Although if for some reason it is not possible, a user of Rate your music I leave the links of the locations
This album is the opposite of what similar thematic album or "Artic Ambient" have made Especially with albums like Subtrata which is but much more mellow than this, and for this reason And that thanks to the nature of the album maybe it can make some people feel uncomfortable or anxiety. That is why I suggest if anyone who is interested in hearing the frozen side of ambient hears things like Subtrata or Cirque, and that after hearing and getting used to that atmosphere they go to this "darker" side.
A few days ago, at midnight, boring as hell, discovering music and label I came across with the legendary label of mr solarstone Pure trance. Nothing to says about this label, its a very unique label unlike to the others trance labels like A state of trance or Future sound of Egypt, so i picked up the last release in that day what it is Hutan by Hoope. Weird name, i never heard about this artist before, anyway I'll go straight to the point.
the track its a diamond shining in a mine of coal, this is for me the real sound of progressive trance. with a oldschool influence hoopoe hutan shines with a very melodic sound, a very reverberated and 303 bassline acid pattern and dreamy synths, very controlated and euforic and the same time with all the elements well balanced. The true and purest form of progressive trance nowdays.
And surprisingly in the process of writing this little review of hutan i find this: Artur Wonderland
Same thing,an artist who i never listen his before and same label "Pure Trance" and again,very very very pure and classic sound of progressive trance and the duration are reflection of that: 7:09 minutes, good duration thought, enough to build a proper track. The main melody is starring by a cute piano sound that reminds me to the sound of dream trance, kind of "Robert Miles - Children" or "Dj Dado - Dreamscape",a kind of vocal/orchestral elements who build this progression and a repetivive bassline who create this union between the classic and modern sound, And the rest of the track its full of a sentimental emotions unlike Hutan what is more melancholic and nocturnal sound.
Both tracks are simply masterpieces, the true forms of Progressive trance and what do they deserve that name not like the most Progressive tracks who really sounds like a crappy mainstream progressive house. it's incredible that tracks like this are being released in this times, and because of that both are my favorites of this year and in my list of top songs.
I love this sound, and i very missed with all my heart and now im very happy for someone who listen progressive trance and house until 2012.
Focus writter is an opensource software that I found on July 27 when I realized that the pc version of ia writter that I had had deleted it.
By the way if you want to write with a good app do it with ia writter, since to be such a light and simple app, it does the job very well. The truth is very useful when you have an idea and you need to write it without having to write it down in the notes app or if you want to write and you need more options like adding lists, different fonts or other things.
But anyway, this is not a review of ia writter, but of Focus Writter, which as I said is a software that I installed after realizing that I had removed ia writter from my disgusting pc with i3.
The first thing that I like and I see as an advantage is how little it weighs, it is very light software and does not require a lot of resources, which is obvious to be a writing program but perhaps for PC with few resources it can be used [A computer with too few resources…. That may have to be a pc made of stone with monkeys inside… anyway].
Second is a very simple program and at the same time powerful, it has many options and special features that I really loved, but I will tell you later.
And the thing that fascinates me, and which bears his name, is that Focus writter allows you to focus on what you're writing without any distraction.
One of the greatest enemies of people who like to write are practically all external agents and social networks since they distract us from the writing process and with it as a consequence we can forget about the idea of which we are writing , or simply forget that we are writing that it can also happen.
It does not prevent you from listening to music or anything like that but it helps you not to blur the text in the visual part. since focus writter works in full screen with a customizable background. This makes it just you and the text which is great.
And the great thing that to exit the program you must look up the options to just exit, this makes it very tiresome in the part that you have to look for the button and then exit, maybe a couple of times it does not affect but do it too much exhausts.
Which, by the way, as I was saying, all the options are hidden on the sides of the screen to which one should simply move the cursor to any side of the screen.
On the left is the menu of all our saved texts, on the right is the scroll bar, above are all the customization and configuration options and below there is a bar that counts the written words and the personal progress bar.
t That's right, you can set a goal for how much you will write in the day, which is great, since it allows you to improve yourself and motivate yourself to write more.
And the feature that I personally love is the fact that one of the customization options, is to activate the typewriter sound
is great, perfect for people like me who can't have a typewriter and who can hear that little sound, it's even satisfying.
Of course this does not affect anything in writing but hey! typewriter sounds UwU
The only against that if you could say it like that, is the interface in general, since it is something basic and even old, but the truth is that there are not much problems with it.And the fact that it is not done to edit documents can be a great disadvantage for many, But as I say for that there is Microsoft Word.
This is more for people who just want to write and write and edit later.
Suburban Architecture - Visions EP
The past year of 2019 was a year with a lot of great albums, maybe not was great but its not horrible.
In fact 2019 was the year that i listen more albums than any year and most of them are from that year and i find really cool gems
And one of those gems and in part a surprise was this EP made by a dj/producer from London called Suburban Architecture, and surprise surprise its his debut!
So its his only release at least by this Alias and this Label.
The EP itself is a Drum and Bass/Atmospheric DnB with some Touches of Jungle and just has 4 Tracks of 5 Minutes more or less, so has a desent duration of this tracks like any good DnB track.
To start to end has a lot of potencial in each track and the long duration of those are really a good point because are really adictive and energetic in their own way, and if you are familiar with the scene of DnB you will notice a characteristic sound of the 90s oldschool style.
Why? Because The Whole EP its an Homenage of the 90s beginnins of the DnB an their ages of development. And all the labels an artist who defined that innovative sound
No seriously at the fist seconds you can hear all that influences, from Metalheds,Reinforced,Cubic Resource, etc. And make it justice, sounds amazing, speacially the 2 first tracks where the atmospheric dnb are the protagonist and the other 2 represent the more jazzy side of DnB with a lot of "drumfunk" in between. Other Point i have to say, the drum patterns are insane!, are really funky, fast, a bit agressive and controlled in a perfect way to enjoy, specially in the jazzy side of the EP.
Anyway I love this EP soo much, its one of the better things who i find the last year and one of the best DNB Records of 2019, its very good, maybe this review its dosent make any justice but... i dont know, just simply listen it, and with more reason if you love DnB or just simply want to start listen to it.
Dune II (Android Port)
Well after a long time, im finally dared to play the port of dune II for android. Dune II its an RTS Game release by the legendary Westwood Studios in 1992, and its based in the book of the same name written by Frank Hebert in 1965 which consists of the fight of 3 empires for the planet dune and the control of the spice melange, the most valuable substance of the known empire since it allowed interstellar travel and other things. Although that is in summary since the dune books are much more extensive and complete.
And it is ultra well known for being a video game that apart from being a classic, revolutionized the genre of strategy games and gave them the way we know it today.
In fact after this game came a lot of great games
like Warcraft, Command and Conquer, Age of Empires, Total Annihilation, and many more. So yeah, this game dit a lot for the videogame industry in terms of Gameplay, But the gameplay like you expect from a game of this era its a bit tedious in the terms of command your units because you need to click and give them an order one by one..
Yeah One by one, Maybe with couple of unit its a bit "tolerable", but with you have an entire army of 15 or 20 or more units to give them an order, its very tedious. And The AI dosent Help very much with this, its very "basic", many times the units dosent do anything just they hold they positions and attack to the enemies [Near Of their positions] who are incoming to attack the base.
But.. Thats some of this things are of the DOS Version, ¿what happen with the Android Port?, ¿this port fix some of this problems or add something extra to the game?.
Well, not so much, its a very "loyal" port of the DOS version, so basicaly its just this game now for android, nothing more nothing less, dosent have new unit of factions, nothing.
But! keep being a fun way to play it, the mayor aspect here its the gameplay because of the tactile screen of your phone and larger resolution of the map its more comfy and easy to comand your units and have more control over the map, but in con of this are the size of the units are a bit tiny and are a bit hard to select but this depends of the size of you phone screen and your skills to select small sprites.[Well maybe it just me, i dont like play in phone so much but anyway its my opinion >:u]
The music sounds great! and the sound of the units too, in this aspect the sound quality its great, i dosent have any problem with this, not even lag or weird things.
The AI is being the same, the graphics is the same. But more than this the game its perfecly playable and probably be one of the best ways to play Dune II. Its a fun experience and maybe a good way to kill time when you are not doing anything or you search something to play.
A little Gameplay if you want to see the Game
Cat Destroyer - Dangos Makes me cry
Today (Well.. I don't know really what day im gonna post this, but the day im writing this is 10 of April of 2020) i spend a bit of time in rate your music like always, trying to find something interesting to listen
Really without success at first, but i check the notifications, and realise who one of the user i follow miss pinkowo aparently has founded an online label!. With an special and interesting concept of Make Abrazive and noisy music mixed with cute stuff like anime or sentimental thematic, making generes nearly unaccessibles like noise and power electronics, more "romantic and sentimental".
In fact the name of the label is named "Noise With Heart" [Sounds Cute already Do not you believe it?? ^^] I like cute stuff, so i check an random release like always, and one of them are this.
Anyway, to begin this is a track of "medium duration", if you can tell like that, because It is 11 minutes long
The track itself is an piece of noise and and ambient, but not sound too noisy or aggressive like other tracks or albums with this combination. But sounds very confortable and the noise elements are very controlated in terms of being abrasive or loud, just its a very relaxing and calm and its very rare for me, because im not a big fan of the noise, but most of the time i hear it sounds very loud, harsh and caotic, like "mo-te - life in a peaceful new word","Merzbow - Pulse Demon" or "Hanatarash - Hanatarash Ep".
I fact maybe this its the first time i listen a complete track of noise without think about changing songs or stop listening to it and hearing something else.
Its a very speacial track, with elements like cute anime voices and specially a piano making these ambient passages arround,In fact that piano notes reminds me in part of the Legendary 1/1 of Ambient 1 from Brian Eno (If you not listen that album, its worth to check it out, speacially if you want something to sleep or music background to study)
Well, to end it up,Makes me so sad thinking about this a only track and not a EP or album, and more sad thinking about this maybe will fall to the internet deepest obscurity, and obscurity which its very hard to reach and escape.
But the good news like everything digital always be alive in our phones, and its free to download too!, so if you dislike Noise for being be noisy and Hard to listen and you want listen something more accessible, this is for you. A track maybe not memorable or a masterpeace but must be listened at least ones, and a label with a concept who need in my opinion more atention
X-Kay Feat Hatsune Miku Ave Maria (No Money Remix)
Ave Maria is an ancient song that practically one does not have to belong to Catholicism to recognize it. In fact the versions that we all know De developed in the times of the opera and continued practically until the times of now. Being a large number of composers who have been in charge of it and each one has practically its own essence. It is not strange to see this type of melodies being transformed to the genres of today. In fact we have already seen many remixes of these hymns in dubstep, electro house, trance, etc. In fact I think one of the most recognizable is the remix that William Orbit made with "Barber's Adagio for Strings" around 1995, a true modern classic.
So it happened in this case of ave maria and with the collaboration of the angelic voices of hatsune miku.
This is one of those tracks that I have discovered this week and that unfortunately for the task and other factors I could not write a "quick review" or my first impression about it.
Honestly I've always thought since I first searched for "Hatsune Miku Trance remixes" on youtube, I always thought miku and trance was the perfect mix.
And the truth has not disappointed any song until now, and I hope it continues like this.
But this?!, When I heard this I thought that ...
This is trance !! It is one of those songs in which are all the elements that you like about music in general or of that specific genre that you love so much.
It has rhythm, It has energy, it has a great symphonic moment and miku's voice just does all the epic and heavenly song.
The truth is that this song should be in the list of "the melodies that demonstrate the limitations and vocal capabilities of hatsune miku" [Yep, that's how long the name is]
Anyway It is already my new favorite And I love it <3
Purple Palm - Sensual Secrets
Sensual Secrets its a vaporwave album that i discover in 26 thrusday of this month while i explore the rym profile of Vito james Founder of the one of the most popular and bigger in terms of discography in the vaporwave scene, DMT Tapes FL. Im not a big fan of this label, personaly is a big mixbag but is rasonable, because this label have most of 700 releases and with this amount you can expect of the some quality of the albums. In fact today before i write this kind of review, i check the "last" release of the label "空間的論理とき ANIMAL OBSERVER Railroad Game" what is a very lazy and forgeteable album inspired in sid meier´s railroad tycoon game of 1990.
Anyway, I started to choose one album to listen, scrolling this big list of releases, and pick this. The result? An very solid album of vaporwave, nothing awesome but is not crap, its a very enjoyable!. Its your typical classic vaporwave album, with that reverb sax jams, and those chill synths. Maybe its will be perfect for a long summer trip, but with its coronavirus chaos arround the globe its hard to know it :c. But nothing can stop you for listen this, specialy if you want a relax time. If you are a vaporwave curious or never you listen the name of this genere till now, this is a good start. You can pic this album in the DMT Tapes FL label page in bandcamp, and the most awesome of this like the most releases of this label, is the fact this album its free to download!.
