Rabauw - Machine Communication


I've been working on this for quite a while. Wanted to do something different, with distorted synths and clashing sounds. I built it, then tore the song apart and restructured it in a stranger way.
I think it's got a nice, dirty sound picture.
Feedback appreciated!

The machines are alive!
They are communicating
do you understand what they're saying?

UPDATE 1 NOVEMBER 2006: Remastered and remixed, with a heavier kickdrum.

    yeahhh man , cool vibe i liked it alot theres some groovy mooves in this song, nice break in the middel... maybe the vocalz you could play more with and the Drrex drum preset (1:36) sound too mutch reason for me ... very catchy track but maybe more melo would help too... anyway i like it as it is now!! thumbs up

    kaoz [be] - 15 years ago

    indeed something different, in particular i like that 70's synth theme...
    the machinez are saying: kill the humanz, kill the humanz!!

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    70s? That's even worse than 80s man! :)

    Nah, thanks for da commentas brothas!

    The mix is good, but i don't think this kind of melody fit well in the sort of song it is. Like when you make a melody, then the bass plays the same melody then another synth...this structure sounds more like rave to me :) maybe you could make a different more dissonant melody? Liked the end btw!

    Scootchy [be] - 15 years ago

    yee something "fresh" in it!

    Rabauw [be] - 15 years ago

    I see your point, Bandar, but I can't help it...it's just my way of working... layers, I have a very linear style. And it's only the middle part where it's linear heh :) For me, this was something new and exciting to produce, but of course I can't help developing it with a 'rabauwish' touch, like the 5/4 part - I love a nice odd time sig from time to time :).

    mik [be] - 15 years ago

    Yea this is cool! I'm just not too fond of some parts of the melodies, a bit too cheesy for me maybe. Otherwise, nice produciton and the structure, albeit pretty simple, is nice still.

    I don't understand what the machines are saying tho :'(

    yenneman [be] - 15 years ago

    Love the intro sounds. Very rabauwish melodies. The twist at 1'37" isn't my cup of tea. It's a pity that you didn't use the same kind of drumpatterns from the beginning in the middle part, but they probably wouldn't fit the melo then...still, a very nice effort to try something new.

    Bedlam [be] - 15 years ago

    Ja vel !
    Guys, you can't critique the melody !
    It's the machines talking !

    Don't you get it !


    OK :)

    I just woke up and hung over !

    This is pretty nice

    Rabauw style of course !

    i listend and i like

    rf061992 [be] - 15 years ago

    To start I wish you good luck to include/understand what follows. The
    beginning a little, one wonders if the melody is well built, it does
    not seem to be succeeded. Gradually in the song it is built more and
    more to become very well in the final one. Pretty way of transporting
    the listener towards your universe melodic. The sound is good but good
    that goes without saying. Very beautiful song. ;)

    Message understoof, rf! :)

    zodax [be] - 15 years ago

    reaman [be] - 15 years ago

    there is some clicking near the end (right ear) but apart from that i really liked it.

    Akwalek [be] - 15 years ago

    haha kaoz it right, the machines are saying kill the humans, not my cup of tea, but nice assembled anyways

    kaoz [be] - 14 years ago

    well, that (cheesy) synth sounds like an early Vangelis, that's why the 70's... the rest has of course nothing to do with that...

    ELFENKOMMANDO [be] - 14 years ago

    nice easy listening tune ... would fall asleep when we speak ... although ... come to think 'bout it ... i would fall asleep anytime, anyplace anywhe zzZzZzZzZ ... [img]http://e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/sleep.gif[/img] :))
