Great track Dave
I love the grooves you come up with and the stunning song development/production. You are truly a great musician and producer. I had a blast working on this piece and look forward to our next one muh bruthah. Duh fizzle!

PS, there is no six string guitar on this tune, only piccolo bass playing the guitar sounding parts. Piccolo bass sounds like a six-string guitar, but only has 4 strings (at least mine only has 4 strings).

I used my Fender bass, Fender piccolo, M-audio keyboard into garageband, and my firewire solo (an awesome firewire input device). I also used a compressor plugin that McBoy sent me (can't remember the name of it right now).

Great track Dave
Thanks Drew! This tune is all about your killer bass and piccolo bass
lines, and I wanted to do them justice, so I'm glad you dig this final
production! I'm looking forward to our next jam.

I've corrected the instrument credits; man that piccolo bass is versatile.
Keep rocking out man!

Jeez!
This and Tadashi Togawa's new tune in the same day. Two "tenners". I'm
gonna have a coronary!

This is too excellent. Great lead-in rhythms. Nice change ups. Flows and
flows and never loses you. Excellent mix. Killer yet tastefully understated
leads. Good job gents!

Be well!

This is darn good Electronic Music.
The guitars were sick, and so was the bass. It kinda reminded me of Moby but with a harder edge to it. (if that makes any sense). Totally sweet, great job. Ooh, and the production was excellent, everything sounded just right.

I appreciate that about the production; I'm starting to feel like I'm getting a handle on making good mixes--I listen to my older stuff and cringe a bit because of what I've learned since then! Anyway, mixing this was a real challenge, keeping the different tracks from muddying each other up, but I'm starting to understand how to do that better. Thanks for listening man, I'm glad you like this!

Nice
I don't normally enjoy listening to this type of music, but this was really awesome.

What especially captured my interest is I could swear that I was hearing traces of influence from totally different subgenres of rock (and even a little disco), but it all blended together so seamlessly.

Thanks Andronis, I really like your comment. I think my diverse musical interests do tend to get blenderized in my mixes, and I always hope it works anyway. And some things about disco I actually like, and I do hear it a bit in here too. Thanks for listening!

Rawr!
This is spectacularly stompin' good music... the beat reminds me of
ancient masked tribesmen dancing and conjuring up who-knows-what.
Great keyboards, great drums, great guitars, great vox/fx/tweaks/
pacing... sheesh! Unstoppable madness! Definitely a DL/Fave here for
one of my go-crazy days. My only suggestion would be to have a long
growling ending chord slowly die away at the end instead of (or after) the
doobie-doo singing.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Haha, it reminds me of that too. I think the art probably helps; funny, it's a
picture of an old porchlight and a NYC street from above (both highly
distorted, obviously) and it conjures this tribal mask looking guy, who both
evolved with and was reflected in the music. Thanks for listening and your
suggestion, Eduard, I'm glad you enjoyed this unstoppable madness!

Two Powerhouses
You know, i figured--what the hell--I'll experiment a little with this piccolo bass. I have played it for years....got the idea from Miles Davis, who toured with a piccolo bassist on year who played guitarish lines (although his was a six-string). So, after watching that concert, I took my old Fender Mustang short neck bass, modified it slightly, slapped some piccolo stings on there, and it worked! In this tune, I just let it rip, trying to make it as guitar sounding as possible. I still wish I had the high B and E, like on a six string guitar, because the EADG tuning is really limited in terms of constructing chords. But, that's when I pull out the 'ol keyboard! Tks for checking it out Z.

Excellent track!
Someone mentioned hearing lots of musical references here -
definitely correct!! Seriously rocking post! Haven't heard (as far as I'm
aware) a piccolo bass before, and it's a very interesting concept indeed.
The chanting is the bit that sets the tribal feel for me, and the drums
are perfect (are they DoD David?). Only disappointment (and it was just
an "Oh, why'd they do that?", not "Oh dear, they've spoilt it!") was the
ending, which sounded a bit loose.
Excellent track!

Drew Kopr said 3997 days ago (July 18th, 2006)
Excellent track!
Yeah, we had a couple different endings and I left it to Dave to pick...so that's dave's fault... just kidding dude! Just a little experimentation with some high melodic stuff...kinda airy...i sort of like it, but also could live without it. Maybe we could mix in the chord underneath and that would fatten it up a little.
Check out my latest song called IfIWereHigh
perceptualvortex said 3997 days ago (July 18th, 2006)
Excellent track!
Drizzle only gave me two ending options, and I chose the lesser of two evil
loose choices.... so it's Drew's fault. Ha! Actually, I'm thinking that the
looseness is more about the washy, highly-phased, machine style drums I
layered over the ending section, and shortly before the very end too. I liked
em, but they could probably be brought down even lower in the mix because
I do think they're blurring away some of the rhythm section, and making it
sound looser. The drum loops are mostly from the Zero-G and Acid Loops
collections, but there's also a lot of DoD touches throughout--individual hits,
fills and some loops. I'm glad you like this and I appreciate the kind words,
thanks Neil!

Well, well...
Some people should go on vacation more often. It sounds as though
that time in the wilderness did you a lot of good, David because you've
come up with the perfect track to go with Drew's killer bass work. It
really is amazing how much the picolo sounds like a guitar.

This mix is INCREDIBLE, amazing and spectacular. One thing that really
stands out to me is the wonderful tonal balance. I think with a drum
heavy, bass heavy track it would be a massive battle to keep the
freqencies balanced so the song didn't end up with too much bottom.
You've made some cool choices, with the finger cymbals and vocals to
keep things with a rich spectrum of sound.

Niiiiiiiicccccce work, boys.
Drew Kopr said 3997 days ago (July 18th, 2006)

into trying to get the pieces from walking all over each other. And even
though it's busy as hell, I'm happy with how I was mostly able to give each
track it's own space. I had a great time mixing this beast, and I still like
listening to it; I'm glad you could get caught up in this too. Thank you

Top that!
Take one of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's better songs, add a bucket of Depeche Mode, Prodigy, Faith No More and blend it Perceptualvortex style! Bursting with raw energy and lots of quite outstanding creative ideas and energy, I have to say this my favorite song of yours so far! Impressive work! The "bell" sound contrasts the solid layer of synths, rhythm and cool guitar riffs. It'a amazing how you manage to mix so many different styles and make it sound organic. Quite often music like this feels "over-mixed" and "contrieved". Not this one! Excellent sense of instrumentation and mixing. The modified voices work extremely well. And with all the high ratings and great comments, the only thing left is downloading and fav'ing.

PV/Drew fantastic track. I took you up on the headphone/volume
suggestion and it was mind blowing. The vocal parts were just nerve
tingling and the guitar work extradonary. Very slick porduction, very
pro sounding. PV, how you put a frame work to Drew's tracks should
be a MJ required tutorial. So literally you had just bass tracks to work
with? simply impressive work.

Great, I'm glad you were able to rock out to this with headphones; I tried to
make it a 3-d experience :) And I'm glad you liked the production on this,
thanks... I'm really working on improving.

There was a little bit of sending tracks back and forth, but basically yes, I just
started with Drew's original bass and piccolo bass tracks. Then I constructed
the drum tracks by looping each bass groove and trying on many many many
many drum loops to try to zero in on ones that matched and enhanced his
grooves. Through most of the song, there are two drumsets playing--
different grooves that both match the basslines. When Drew heard how I was
shaping the beats and where I put vocals and etc., he sent me more tracks of
the piccolo bass and keyboards. And then I sprinkled fills, accents, beats,
sound fx and etc (I added 9 tracks to his 5). Most of the mixing involved
adjusting panning and volume envelopes, and using EQ, compression and a
lot of other filters, until I felt like I was disentangling the pieces. It was fun
and challenging and it's enough to make me ramble. Thank you very much,
John; you call it mind blowing, which is the best description I could hope for.

PIccolo bass?
I think I"ve heard that instrument only twice. Stanley Clark plays one, but
presumably that's an acoustic. And I believe Arthur Barrow (who played
with Zappa) plays a whole bunch of bass parts including piccolo on "tink
walks amok". I recognise some of that sound here.

This is a seriously good tune. Great bass parts and the rest is filled in
quite imaginatively. The synths, vocals, drums, and effects are all
excellent. Professional stuff.

PIccolo bass?
I'm glad you enjoyed this. Drew introduced me to the piccolo bass, and it's
tone really gives this song a unique sound I think. Thank you Vic, I
appreciate your comment!

Screamn' good...
That's what comes to mind - Everytime I hear Drew's work I go, I can't believe that this kind of talent hangs out here - Same w/ you PV - This is pretty hot shit -'Raggedy good' comes to mind - It's definately in a league of it's on - And of course, you guys should do more work to together cause you're a pretty damn tight fit - But you've been a tight fit everytime I've heard what you do w/ others David - In my mind, you're more like what I would consider a good producer - You have earned the tittle my friend - Thanks for puttn' this out - Dion

Kickin'
Thanks Dion! Hell yeah, Drew's playing really kicks ass, doesn't it? Yeah, I want to do more collaborations with the man, and I think it'll happen once I get my act more together. Thanks for the kind words, man, I appreciate you taking the time to listen to my tunes that popped up while you were out!

Great groove. Man, this kicks serious butt. Liked the change-ups, the
guitars, background vocals etc. This moved like a locomotive on speed.

Really enjoy this...
Great tune, a little chili-pepper's with that opening bass line, but that is a pretty nice compliement. Enjoyed this song from top to bottom, only suggestion is switching that type writer bell for some congas, maybe some lyrics, otherwise thoroughly enjoyed, thanks-MJG

Love this!
Wow! What a rockin track....love the subtle vox in the background (sound a bit like Devin in SYL). Everything is just so killer in this. I'm just getting into MJ and I'm sure starting off great with tracks like this. Well done!

Loved the Artwork.
I see that as if it were a person's back that got all morphed into a ceremonial mask. And I hear a tribal sound to this. Thanks.
